Wednesday Weekly Roundup


And last week I got back to my 10K or so, both writing that last story for submission (that will head for the editor’s desk with the rest next week) and starting a new project that should be quickly done so I can start writing for the Anthology Workshop at the end of the month.

After brainstorming with myself I decided to go back to the Star Minds Lone Wolves and next year will see three more longer stories and at least another ten Lone Wolves Team missions with new members. I’ve started with Kaori, who has shown up quite a lot in all the published books, and wrote her story. No spoilers for whoever hasn’t checked them out yet, though.

She’s on the cover of Star Minds Third Generation Snippets, though, as Galaxy Police rookie. The Lone Wolves are set ten years later, so her book is abviously titled “Cop”. Then I’ll have “Assassin” and “Smuggler” and more Team missions.

But going back to Silvery Earth, did you know November is Fairy Tales Retold Month? Yeah, I made that up, but look at the coincidence: I published More Fairy Tales Revisited and Fairy Tales Revisited came out in a brand new bundle curated by A.L. Butcher! 😉

The Backstage Pass is also about those fairy tales and how they came into being. I wrote them all months ago, but hoped to make it a book as long as the first one – except I didn’t actually found another Rithvik and Kerrien to play with! 😉 So there you have it, a shorter book waiting for more to become Volume 2! 😉

All in all I’m quite happy that last week I managed to finish the lettering on the Silvery Earth Kids strip (both English and Italian) as well as writing new stuff. Now I’m back to DayJob, so I’ll have to go around it – although I might actually be able to start working on the Star Minds Kids strip in the mornings.

On Sunday I watched How to Train Your Dragon 3 with Dear Nephew, and we had a lot of fun. I think it’s a nice ending for the trilogy, and I liked the extras (although some I watched alone, since he had to go back to Mom’s to do some homework).

By Christmas he’ll probably be taller than be, but he’s still pretty much into those 3D stories. He even sort of summarized for me a story he has in mind, but I don’t know if I’ll ever manage to make him write it, LOL! He says he has all the character names down, though – all in English, can you believe it! 😀

Oh, and Sunday night I updated the trailer for Silvery Earth! 🙂 Not a masterpiece, but at least I took out all the ugly covers and the books that are no longer available!

And it’s Infinite Bard time again! Go check the latest story! Happy reading and have a great week!

  1. Sounds like it was a very productive week. Hope being back to day job doesn’t slow you down too much. I’m sure you’ll find a way to still get a decent amount of writing in despite it though.

    Sorry I’m so late in here this week. I’m late everywhere this week, since I was already a bit behind due to spending most of Monday sorting videos of fireworks out, and then I had an unexpected house guest for most of the week.

    Great about the movie watching with your nephew. Good choice too. I haven’t seen the 3rd How To Train Your Dragon movie yet, but watched and loved the first two. Also, I hope you can convince him to write that story down.

    • One week in and I’m already sick of it… Damn soul-sucking day job that pays bills. Writing is the only thing that keeps my mind off of it, so…
      I know you were busy, birthday girl, don’t worry. And we’ll see if I can get my nephew to write that story.

  2. Also, love the fairy tale month idea. There’s a fairy day in June you might want to take note of for future reference… It’s June 24th. Oh, and it was unicorn day not too long ago, but I didn’t get a chance to mention it to you at the time, and then forgot about it until this moment.

    I need to write something with a unicorn in it… Considering my love of both horses and fantasy creatures, I’m not sure why I haven’t yet actually…

    • I don’t think I’ll have new fairy tales next June, but you never know! 🙂
      And I’ll read your unicorn story as soon as you publish it! 😀
