Wednesday Weekly Roundup


And Book 5 is out! The novels are over, and the last one (above) has dragon eggs and dragon cubs in it. Next title is a collection of shorts related to the novels or prequels to the novels, but it can also be read independently, I guess… you’ll see in a couple of weeks!

And since Facebook/Meta is making things harder for Pages, as soon as this series is all out, I’ll probably stop updating the author Page. I’ll put back the generic cover picture and let this blog go there automatically, but I probably won’t be updating the photo albums much longer.

I feel the social media in question is very close to the Thrust Termocline, and to understand what I mean, check out this Twitter thread. Social media aren’t the only companies doing this, and a certain retailer apparently is making lots of customers unhappy with their latest changes, so we’ll see.

I don’t have an alternate social media platform yet, although I may eventually go back to Patreon or try Substack, but that’s something to think about next year.

Last week I was supposed to go back to work on Nov.2, but I woke up with a fever, slept it off, and then tested positive for Covid, so I spent the rest of the week at home. I managed to write almost 13k (as soon as the fever left me the next day), or two stories, one in Italian, the other in English, which brought the yearly total to 455K. I may still make it to 500K if I find a novel-length project to finish the year.

I’m probably going for an English social sci-fi story with genetic manipulation, sort of mirror (well, actually, it’s more like a sequel) to the Italian novel, so I can explore more of this strange alternate future. If I can figure out how to do bilingual books, it might all come under the same umbrella, otherwise, we’ll see. It’s rather complicated, since the stories in the two languages aren’t translations, but different stories in the same late 21st century Earth (different countries, different points of view), so… I don’t know yet what will be.

Another post that stroke a chord with me is Kris Rusch’s Building a New World. Here’s to me being able to drop that part-time DayJob (that will hopefully soon vanish or be automated or whatever else the powers that be have in mind for that sort of thing), since I’m nearing 60, and that’s when you no longer take shit from anyone, LOL!

That’s all for today! Have a great week! 🙂

And here comes Book 4 of Immortaland Dragons! Dragon Queen is out in eBook and paperback! 🙂 In two weeks comes Book 5 and then the final collection and the series will be complete!

Last week I wrote 16.5K words, which took the yearly wordcount to 430K, which is not bad at all, even if it’s much lower than the previous two-three years. 6K were in English, 10.5K were in Italian, still working on that social sci-fi novel. The short story in English will probably come out next year anyway, possibly as a prequel or included in a collection in a pre-existing series.

This week I’m traveling, but I have the writing computer with me, so I should be able to finish that Italian novel and send it to betas. I’m meeting friends as well, so some social life for a change. And when I get back I hope Techie Bro takes the laptop away for some necessary work.

That’s all for today! Can’t believe October is almost over already… Have a great week! 🙂

And Book 1 is OUT! Check it out! There’s also the series announcement, and of course the series page! And since I’m still tinkering with all the books, giving them a last pass, I won’t be doing any pre-order on this series. Next year I hope to be more organized!

I’m impressed by how much I accomplished this year despite everything. Two short series, one Kickstarter and a few Storybundles – what else can I ask for? Yes, there’s another Storybundle coming soon, stay tuned for the announcement…

This week, despite “losing” a day to an unexpected trip, I wrote 17K, so I’m clearly still on a roll! 🙂 And I backed a Kickstarter that will give me two more short online workshops + the research books I brought back from England, I guess I’ll be fine until the end of the year, LOL!

Now I’m back to the dreaded DayJob and the usual routine… it’s still quite hot for September, but hopefully autumn (or the fall) isn’t too far away at this point. And maybe before Christmas Techie Bro will fix my laptop, LOL!

That’s all for today… have a great week!

COVER REVEAL!

Here are the covers of the upcoming new series! An exciting, new, wondrous fantasy world of dragons and magic! Book 1 will be out in two weeks, so coming real soon… 🙂

Last week I wrote over 12K, most of which on book 5 – still tinkering with the rest. This week I won’t be writing at all, but hopefully next week I’ll reach 350K for the year. And I still don’t know which project will take me to the end of the year, LOL!

Anyhow, I’m taking this week off writing – yes, another one! Its the third this year, sheesh! But this time it’s for a vacation, not for wearing the publisher cap, I swear! 🙂 I badly need to recharge the creative batteries!

Which doesn’t mean I will not write at all. I may do some new vignette or jot down ideas in my notebook. We’ll see. I guess a creator’s mind is never on vacation anyway! 🙂 But I’m sure even Laptop will be happy to be switched off for a week.

I hope to be able to catch up on some reading this week, and if I read something I like, you’ll see it on Bookbub, as usual. Because y’all are following me on Bookbub, right? I hope to fill that 2-month gap since last recommendation soon, promise!

That’s all for today… have a great week! 🙂
