As for me.

Last Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM: Wait out the latest request and a couple of recent queries. Then decide what to do next. Try a small publisher, maybe. Or I may decide to make a change or two first.
Since it had been three months, I sent a follow-up to the agent with the request. Haven't heard back yet. [Frown]

MAGIC AND POWER: Send out three more queries.
Yes. I also gave the synopsis another revision. [Smile]

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Enjoy the ride. This is the last week TSC will be only $0.99.
And what a fun ride it was. It got withing the first ten on some best seller and hot new releases lists on Amazon. Only on Amazon, though. We'll see how it goes now that the price has gone up. [Smile]

DREAMER'S ROSE: Pause, for now.
Easy one. [Smile] Actually I don't think I'll get back to this one until late this year.

THE IGNORED PROPHECY: Finish this first draft of the rewrite.
Done! [Big Grin]

WEIRD OZ: I've finally started to get some new ideas on how to fix this one. For now, just jot those ideas down as they come and let them percolate.
No new ideas recently, but I'm still letting them ferment. [Smile]

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.
Yes. [Smile]

Next Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM:
Wait for a reply to my follow-up query to the agent with a request. Try a small publisher, maybe. Or I may decide to make a change or two first.

MAGIC AND POWER:
Send out three more queries.

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE:
It'll be interesting to see what happens to sales now that the price has gone up (but not very high). It's still on the first or second page of it's specific best seller lists (fantasy--sword and sorcery, epic, and coming of age) and on the first page (actually within the first ten) of those hot new releases lists.

DREAMER'S ROSE:
Pause, for now.

THE IGNORED PROPHECY:
Let this rest for a week or so.

WEIRD OZ:
Let the new ideas ferment a bit.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.
Get a start on a short story that will be a tie-in to THE SHAMAN'S CURSE AND THE IGNORED PROPHECY.
