Writer Wednesday

And another week has gone by! Time sure is flying, innit? (I know there must be an apostrophe somewhere, but my British English is quite rusty. Damn Yankees). Checking wordcount for the first quarter, I’m a little over 100k for the first three months, so still a little behind. But I will catch up now that I’m writing two things at the same time (while thinking about the next two, LOL!).

I had to order another proof, so for the paperback of Falls of the Southern Kingdoms you’ll have to be patient for a few more days. And please go nominate my historical novel on Kindle Scout. I can’t keep track of stats, but they tell me it’s not a problem and they’re aware of it (see below).

Dear Barb,
Thanks for your email.
I’m sorry for the trouble you had with the stats feature of our program. Our technical team is aware of this problem and is working hard to fix it as soon as possible.
Rest assured that this will not affect your book’s chances of getting reviewed by the Kindle Scout team and potentially selected for publication. If your book has been shortlisted, you’ll receive a personalized manuscript feedback report from us when your campaign has ended, and once the publishing decision has been made.
Thanks for your patience while we fix this problem.

So I’m being patient, it’s only another 20something days. And then we’ll see. I didn’t manage to build a self-publishing empire yet, but I don’t write romance. If you do, please check how Marie Force did it! 🙂 Lots of very good advice for writers too – and remember, writers write! 🙂

Now I’m going back to my writing cave… Have a great week! 🙂

  1. It sure is! Oh, and I don’t know what the grammatically correct way of writing “innit” would be. I’ve never actually written it. At least, not where anyone’s cared how I do so. I know “ain’t it” is written like I just did, but that’s as close as I can get and still know I’m being grammatically correct. It could be “‘innit” or “in’nit” or something else entirely… It may even turn out to be correct to write “innit” like you did… Like with “kinda” and “dunno” and similar words. Or, it could be that there’s not really a proper rule that everyone sticks to… Maybe the placement – or absence – of the apostrophe is based on rules that differ from one part of the country to another?

    You realize, of course, that I’m now going to be wondering about this half the night, right?
