Around 11:00 a.m., I call a publishing firm, located in the Olde Anglo metropolitan area, and I make an appointment to publish my book. They tell me to come at 1:00 p.m. for a meeting. I am currently wearing a business suit and working at the DL Designs office when I decide to gather my things and place them into my briefcase. I drive to the location at noon, hoping to finish discussing my publishing needs within thirty minutes so that I can return to DL Designs and work on deadlines. I end up staying there all afternoon, discussing with them my book. By 4:00 p.m., I drive back to the condo, feeling aggravated with this publisher because he had wasted my whole workday, arguing about unnecessary services that I didn’t want or need until we finally agreed on the appropriate package deal that involves a book signing tour at local fashion events and bookstores. This package deal enables me to promote my book around my regular work schedule without performing any frivolous activities.
