Wednesday Weekly Roundup


And with the last Bookversary – Books of the Immortals – Ether is 10 today – ends this year anniversary… I doubt I’ll celebrate more bookversaries, but you never know, LOL! I mean, not until another ten years. When I get home I’ll send a final good-bye on the Kickstarter, but again, I have no idea of when the next will be. So just thanking those backers and moving on.

Last week I wrote a little over 6K, but I’m mostly revising at this point. I also started “Build Better Worlds” to help me with this one. I had no trouble improvising in the past, but some anthropology background is really nice to have things make more sense! 🙂 And it makes for excellent train reading while commuting between towns! 😀

As you might know, I go direct to Kobo, and they just announced that their subscription service is expanding. Kobo Plus is now available in Australia and New Zealand! For those who need a refresher, Kobo Plus is an all-you-can-read subscription service that we launched in the Netherlands and Belgium in 2017, Canada in 2020, and Portugal earlier this year. Subscribers pay a flat monthly fee to read unlimited books for as long as they are enrolled in the program. It’s available in Italian as well, and I’ve seen a French author mentioning it’s available in that language as well. So if you hate Mighty Zon, get a Kobo reader and find me there, oh voracious reader! 😀

Being on sketchy hotel Wi-Fi, I shall keep this short. I hope to go home with another finished novel to send Mighty Editor as soon as she gives me her January availability. It’s been great meeting friends and updating each other in meatspace, but traveling is still quite a hassle, so we’ll see if next year things get better or not.

Maybe I just have to stay put until I can retire early (2023) – and save some money in the process, LOL! Have a great week!

    Sounds like your trip is going well – besides the sketchy wi-fi and hastle of the traveling parts, I mean.

    “Jelena” is all ready to go, and will be available on December 13th. I also now have the narrator lined up for the audio version of “Tedi And The Soothing Snow” so he’s working on that. Plus, I finally got around to figuring out where I could convert an mp3 to an mp4 so I could put my podcast interview from last year up on my YouTube channel. My week hasn’t been productive apart from that from an authorly point of view though. However, there have been some non-writerly things keeping me busy, including roleplaying, crafting, attending a Friendsgiving event via Zoom, and coming up with some post-Thanksgiving lyrics for a song, and singing it for the ACB (American Council of the Blind) community, and then recording it to put that on my YouTube channel too.

    • Busy as a bee, aren’t you? 😉 I’m spending quite some time in meatspace socializing too this week, but I am writing. And no wi-fi until I get home in my father’s hometown, so I’ll keep this short… Happy writing and enjoying winter! 😘
