Writer Wednesday

I must say that writing 3 entwined books at the same time is a new and fun process for me. I should have done the same with the vampires novels, but well… too late for that! 😉

The workshop on Writing Series was really helpful for this, so a big THANK YOU goes to Dean Wesley Smith! I used also the Teams (no longer available) and Writing Science Fiction workshops for this one.

I’m wrapping up these 3 books this week and then I’ll go back to shorter works for the rest of the month – I have promised one story to a charity anthology and I want to submit to Tor novella again (albeit in the July window).

Kindle Scout results! As expected, I wasn’t chosen, hence in June you will have the first new title of the year, my historical novel The Fern and The Cross. I shall set up the pre-order next weekend, since I’m afraid at the end of the month Kindle Scout might vanish completely.

Thank you to anyone who nominated me, you will be notified through KindleScout when the (e-book first) comes out. I’ll do the paperback after the summer. Or you can keep following this very blog, haha! 😀

Writerly links! David Gaughran is still everywhere, I wonder if he’ll show up at Dublin 2019 worldcon next year! 😉 Guest on D2D blog, platform building and related terrors. And on Joanna Penn’s blog, someone talks about his book Strangers to Superfans.

Speaking of Dublin and Worldcon, I filled the form to be on the programme. Soon I’ll fill also the programme suggestions form… we’ll see where that takes us! 🙂

Oh, and… Happy Birthday, Smashwords! 😀 Have a great week!

  1. I think it’s kindof cool that Smashwords celebrates their anniversary only a few weeks after I celebrate the anniversary of when I started publishing with them, and in the same month as my wedding anniversary. Although, I’ve been married longer than they’ve been around. Still cool though.

    I’m glad things still seem to be going well with your writing. Wish I could say the same. At this rate, the only thing I’ll be finishing writing this year is the poetry collection I published in March. *Sigh*

    I look forward to your new title coming out, though I need to read the last couple of books I brought of yours yet. I’m hoping to do that soon. I’d actually hoped to have done so already, but I’m behind on my reading plans because of all the health issues I’ve been dealing with.


    • LOL! Happy anniversary to you and Kelly… I started publishing with Smashwords in January 2011 and with KDP in April 2011 (KWL opened November 2012)… and this blog at the end of 2009, so it’s ALMOST 10 years old! 😉
      I’m sure when the doctors finally listen to you and you recover, you’ll catch up. You’re such a fast reader compared to me! 😀 Who knows, maybe I’ll catch up with my TBR pily myself and get to the Zeena Dragon Fae books… wishful thinking, I’m afraid, but one can dream, right? 😉


  2. Thanks! It was my bloggerversary recently too, since you mentioned yours… My blog is now 12 years old, so it’s older than Smashwords too.

    I read faster than a lot of people. Yeah, I’ll catch up. I just have to make the stupid doctors listen to me first.

  3. What is happening to kindle scout?


    • They are probablybly shutting it down, since they no longer accept books and scouts have until May 31 to claim their ARCs…
