That project manager can fuck right off. (Not saying you can actually tell him/her to do so, I'm just saying it for you because it needed to be said. But seriously, why should someone else's mistake be yours to fix? That's bullshit.

Is there any financial carrot to the accelerated schedule? Or are you paid by the chapter regardless to schedule, and the stick is that you won't be paid for any chapters after the end of October?

Well, that's my feeling, but this is my first project with this company and I want there to be many future projects, so I don't want to come off as Ms. Crankypants.

Seems clear to me that this new project manager was brought in at this late point because their own internal deadlines weren't being met by the previous PM. So I can see her position - she's there to get this thing cranked up and ready (if at all possible) by the publishing date. It's not her fault, either. Unfortunately, I'm the guy left holding the bag because I'm the last person that can make changes before the book goes to print.

The deal was that I would be paid $2500 for the whole job, which was due to be finished by end of the month. Of course, until last week I had only been given a few chapters a week to complete, so I can't be faulted for not moving faster because the chapters just weren't available to me. I was notified on Friday that all the chapters I hadn't yet been given (about 20 of them) were suddenly now available.

No "bonus" has been offered for the crazy accelerated schedule, but I do plan to bring this up once I've finished most of the chapters. I figure, if I can make this BS happen for them, they'll be beholden to me and will give real consideration to additional compensation. At the moment, though, it's still a toss-up whether or not I'll be able to finish roughly a chapter a day for the rest of the month. *sigh*

Went to a gathering last weekend and was disappointed at friend from Canada didn't show up. Seems last year in advance of pot legalization he bought stock in one of the Canadian companies gearing up to serve the demand.

Trump's U.S. Customs and Border Protection had already declared workers in the pot business would not be allowed in, now investors are put in the same category as a drug dealer or for a drug cartel.

As of today, investors, businessmen, etc. involved in that industry in Canada *may* travel to the United States, for personal trips, but not business trips. And carrying marijuana across the border will still get you in federal trouble.

If they want to travel to a free country they need to learn to submit to authority.

I heard NOAA give an extended forecast for my area yesterday, and they used the phrase "...areas of frost during the day..."

I'd never heard that one before.
