Wednesday Weekly Roundup


Last week I wrote a little over 10K, so back on track. Going back and forth between two novels, since they’re set at the same time, so adjusting the already done while I write the current one. The good thing of writing them at the same time or at least long before publishing them is an excellent way of making those minor changes that make the story better. Also because I improvise a lot, and then I have to change stuff around, LOL!

I hope to be done with this project during the coming two weeks, and then we’ll see. I’m thinking of taking at least a month to write short stories for anthologies, while I try to figure out what I want to write next. It’s probably not yet the time to pull out of the drawer my shelved project, so we’ll see.

And another Future Earth Chronicles book is out! Asian Ways follows Arjun and Yuu’s journey through India and China, which is more or less what I’m dealing with in the current novel – 400 years earlier. So, being in an Asian mood, I ended up rewatching Jodhaa Akbar during the weekend! πŸ˜‰

It came out last week, but too late to include it in last week’s post, so here it is.

Revenge, reckoning, and redemption: HELLCATS, THE ANTHOLOGY has it all.

Presenting sixty nine stories of feline adventure that will make you chortle, chuckle, gasp, and guffaw.

We have: Pirates, cowboys, and spacewalkers.

Soul suckers, seers, and swashbuckling heroes.

With guest appearances by Mr. Darcy, The Madwoman in the Attic, and Hunter S. Thompson as a cat.

In the far reaches of outer space, cats crawl and pounce, shift and slaughter.

While back on Earth, the wicked are punished, the weak avenged, and the good guy wins against all odds.

We have paranormal fantasy, sci-fi, swords and sorcerers, cozy mysteries, romance, literary fiction, and much, much more.

All proceeds from this anthology will go to support a 79 year-old grandmother Erada who has been hounded through the courts and is in danger of losing her home.

The HELLCATS are a group of writers who banded together to try to prevent that from happening.

Help the HELLCATS help Erada keep her home.

Buy HELLCATS, THE ANTHOLOGY, now.

More reading recommendations – if you like mystery: Mystery, Crime, and Mayhem is a new Quarterly Mystery Magazine. The first three issues are already out! πŸ™‚

And if you prefer horror you can check this Kickstarter: Feed the Obsession. In both cases I know many of the awesome writers involved in the projects, so check them out! πŸ™‚

Speaking of Kickstarters… a comic book that funded in 24hrs… couldn’t be just because it has a very famous name among the writing credits, right?! This campaign is under fire for industry professionals because

β€œHow is using a platform meant for people to KICK START projects they can’t afford okay for a company who admits they don’t need the money?”

But the publisher

claimed that the point of the Kickstarter was not to raise funds, as the publisher has β€œgot the money for it”, but rather to take advantage of the untapped audience it can reach.

I guess both sides are right, but then, what do I know? I’m not ready for a Kickstarter yet! πŸ˜€

What else? Not much. Busy week at DayJob so far, so not much time to write, but I’ll catch up. Hopefully this afternoon itself. It’s kind of hot again, but I won’t be deterred, LOL! Have a great week!

  1. Glad you’re on track with writing. That’s a good plan working on both books that take place around the same time sort of at once… Good way to be sure events work for both before you publish. Speaking of publishing: I did see the new book was out, and just grabbed a copy. Adding it to my Barbathon reading list. πŸ˜‰
