Wednesday Weekly Roundup


And my next Kickstarter is live! Check it out, read the excerpts, grab the original novella for a buck or the whole series before it goes live at retailers – if you like ebooks, that is! 🙂 This will be a little longer than the previous one, because it’s new stuff and I want people to have time to find it.

It’s an experiment on book-launching. After 10+ years of write-and-release with not very good results, I decided to try this technique for my latest mini-series, in the hopes of actually grabbing some readers. Pre-orders never worked for me, so we’ll see how this goes.

Last week I wrote 6500words, again short stories, I haven’t found a long project yet. I’m at 98K for the year, so I’m not complaining anyway. I’m actually surprised I did this much already! 🙂

This week I haven’t written a word yet, but life got in the way with looking after aging parents and the usual mess at DayJob. Here’s to hoping I can retire early next year and not be bothered by that at least.

I used what little concentration I had to edit the Otherside books, so they’ll be ready when the Kickstarter ends! 🙂 I got book 2 and 3 back from the editor last week, so I’ll concentrate on that for now, and then finish the project I had started (a couple more shorts to write for that one).

Not much else to say this week, except go check my Kickstarter! 🙂 Have a great week! 😀

    That’s an excellent number of words for this point in the year. And I hope you can retire soon so dayjob at least won’t be something that gets in your way.

    I saw about the kickstarter, and hope it does as well as the previous one, if not better.

    I actually got some writing done. I wrote and performed a song for the ACB as part of their birthday celebrations (celebrating two years of the community calls I’ve gotten involved in). I did so because I wanted to, not because anyone made me, but they loved it (it’s on my YouTube channel and everything now) and also wrote and submitted a poem for Alex’s anthology. It’s not the stories I hoped to be working on, but at least it was creative writing of some description. I also got asked to join the ACB Crafters admin team (since I’m doing so much with them anyhow) and somehow found myself agreeing it would be a good idea for me to do a monthly class of some kind… Not sure what I was thinking with that, but I’m doing a talk with a fellow author about business practices in April, doing a poetry writing basics class in May, and working on deciding what I want to do for June onwards (it can be crafting in any shape or form, whether writing, art, papercrafting, needle crafts, or whatever, as long as whatever it is would be considered family-friendly, and it’s visually impaired accessible… Yes, we do even have people doing classes for the blind in painting). Apparently my plan of just seeing where the year takes me has me doing all sorts of trips outside of my comfort zone.

    • Wow, color me impressed! I admit this has been a very hard week for writing. I added a conclusion on Wednesday, then went dry – totally dry until Saturday morning. I’ve had enough of short stories that go nowhere and I might have found a longer work for the rest of the month. We’ll see…. Have a great Sunday! 🙂

    I’m glad your dry spell didn’t last too long. Good luck with the new writing project. Some day soon I’ll be doing the Barbathon I’ve been planning to do for a couple of months now, but reading is something else I’m behind on. I’m enjoying doing all the things I’m involved with, but the time to do the things does have to come from somewhere, which means less time spent on some of the things I was doing before that I still want to do at least sometimes.

    • I hear ya. I’ve restarted movie nights from my DVD collection, although to take my mind off world events, I tend to rewatch only comedies… Matrix Resurrections will have to wait I’m less depressed! 😁
