Wednesday Weekly Roundup


Surprise! I published one of the summer titles already! It’s because I enrolled the other three in the Smashwords July sale starting soon, so if you missed them, you can grab them all at a discounted price. Or in one click on Amazon as a series (although this is the prequel, so it shows up underneath).

Before the Shadows (Ghost Bus Riders 0) is now live on most places, including as paperback. And above you can see the new ebook covers of the whole series, another rebranding done, yay! Also the latest title is available on Smashwords as well – store only, with no distribution, since I use D2D for that.

I thought I’d put the new titles on the Smashwords store only, taking out all the distribution channels, hoping that they will already be there and keep the reviews whenever the actual merging makes one dashboard vanish.

Last week I wrote a little over 5K, then stopped, since I had finished the four novels of the project and I need to go through them again before writing the fifth book. So I used the “time” to tackle Silvery Earth rebranding.

It will take some time, but the current 50 titles will go down to 26, (including 4 box sets), unpublishing all the duplicated stories I wrote through the years. That series grew out of order and it was high time I went back to it and cleaned it up.

So this week I preparing new covers and new documents and new blurbs for the whole series, although it’s now more manageable (and the same length as Star Minds Universe). I will have to update the page with the chronology as well.

Meanwhile I probably won’t write much. I tried to go back to a rather long short story that begged to become a novel, but it turned out there is no longer story yet. And it’s Urban Fantasy/contemporary fantasy, and I need to get away from our world at this time.

Even if it’s set before Covid and the subsequent messes, this planet is not the place I want to write about at this time. I considered writing about a space ark of people fleeing this disaster area that has become Earth, but again, I don’t see the story, so maybe one day, but not now.

Between rebranding and the like, I might check a couple of old stories that might fit in the new project if I translate and rewrite them. We’ll see. Mostly I’ll be working on Silvery Earth, though. Also, the comic book I planned on drawing will probably not happen.

Next weekend is creative weekend, so we’ll see if any of my illustrator/comic book artist friends want to do it, if not, it’s another story that stays in the drawer for now. Now I shall go back to my publisher work, hoping next week I’ll get back to being a writer! 🙂 Have a great week!
