Wednesday Weekly Roundup


The Kickstarter funded, but if you keep sharing it, we might reach another stretch goal, which means more eBooks for everyone! Meanwhile thank you to all those awesome backers!

If you like audiobooks, check out this Kickstarter as well! And the Soccer Moms are also getting audio books, in case you’re interested.

If you’re still hesitant about doing a Kickstarter for your own books, either listen to the interview with Monica Leonelle on Joanna Penn’s blog, or join the free course on Teachable, which will probably take a little longer, but it’s well worth your time (it’s what I did).

A bunch of authors got together to make two kickass anthologies to help the people of Ukraine. Snag your copies here!

Last week I wrote almost 10K, but I kept going back and rework the setting. It’s not a brand new world, but I also had to go through the other novel to remind myself about this world – I haven’t translated that one in English and probably never will, but you’ll get this story that is set much earlier in the history of that world.

While looking for something in my unfinished comic projects folders for the above book, I found a comic project that was supposed to be drawn by a friend who no longer does that (she has moved to body painting), so I’m thinking of trying to do it myself, with my new style, but I need to study the characters a little, since I do need certain women to look like women and not little girls, LOL!

So I might alternate writing the new book with studying for the new comic, and then I’m going to offer it to a publisher first, and if they don’t like it, I might try to put it on Webtoons or some other place, or maybe I’ll do a paperback like I did for the Silvery Earth Kids strip. We’ll see.

This week I printed out the PDFs of the paperbacks of Otherside books because I found so many typos in that Italian title, that I decided I better do it before I send them out as Kickstarter rewards! Createspace allowed to order proof copies that could then be given away, but KDPprint has that ugly banner, so I’d rather just print out the PDFs and go through them before uploading them.

I guess I’ll be busy until the summer with all those projects, LOL! Wishing you all a wonderful week!

    Awesome about the kickstarter funding. I do plan on doing that kickstarter course (I did sign up for it when you gave me the link, but haven’t had time to do it yet). I just don’t know when I’ll get to it. And it sounds like you had a great writing week in general.

    I didn’t do any fiction writing again, but I did write a short article that will be appearing in the ACB community newsletter during their conference this year, got started on putting “Jelena” up on ACX, and sent another message to the narrator who was meant to have done “Pawfect Pet Poems” by now to tell her if I haven’t had anything from her by Easter weekend I’m having her kicked off the contract (the 15 minute checkpoint was due in mid December, and the final project at the end of January… I’ve had neither… I think I’ve been more than patient). That’s on top of facilitating, moderating and hosting duties, behind the scenes admin work for the ACB Crafters, continuing to work my way through “The Artists’ Way” with the group I’m doing that with, reading some stuff I just want to and other stuff I promised to review for people, roleplaying, working on craft projects, recording my song for kareoke (which I played during this past Saturday’s ACB kareoke night, and then put on my YouTube Monday) and day to day tasks like housework, pet care, and attempting to keep up with eMails and such. Believe it or not, I’ve also actually been sleeping sometimes. LOL!

    • Whoa! And I thought I was busy with a part-time day job and ageing parents, LOL! Great that you’re busy and enjoying it. I’ve been getting home too late to do some real writing so far, but hopefully I’ll catch up tomorrow. I’m cycling through and coming up with new ideas and having fun, so I’m not complaining! 😉
