As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

DUAL MAGICS SERIES (THE SHAMAN'S CURSE, THE VOICE OF PROPHECY, BEYOND THE PROPHECY,and WAR OF MAGIC): Look into stacking some other ads along with the Book Barbarian already scheduled.
Eh. Didn't get to that. [Frown]

Wide Distribution Project: While Amazon continues to fumble for a solution to why their upload turned the text red, I need to start considering other options.
E-mail Amazon again. Not that it will do any good.
Did. And it didn't. I didn't even hear back in any meaningful way until just now. And--last resort of tech support . . . well, next to last--they're suggesting I "clear my cache". O-okay. [Roll Eyes] [Mad]

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: Keep on writing.
Not as much as I should have. I got distracted. [Frown]

DUAL MAGICS SERIES: Amazon seems to have activated something called x-ray on my books. This is supposed to allow a description of a character or term to appear, similar to the dictionary function. Unfortunately the descriptions Amazon picked are ham-handed to put it mildly. So now I have to go in and edit those--too. Don't get me wrong, I like the idea, but the timing, not so much.
Got through each of the four books, more or less. Still need to do the boxed set. Then, probably, THE BARD'S GIFT. Likely none of the others, at least right now. This is an as-time-permits project. [Wink]

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

Next Week's Goals:

DUAL MAGICS SERIES (THE SHAMAN'S CURSE, THE VOICE OF PROPHECY, BEYOND THE PROPHECY,and WAR OF MAGIC):
Look into stacking some other ads along with the Book Barbarian already scheduled.

Wide Distribution Project:
Clear the cache on my kindle for pc. Then email them back again. And wait a week for their response--again.

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING:
Keep on writing.

DUAL MAGICS SERIES:
As time permits, go through the x-ray listings for the Dual Magics boxed set and THE BARD'S GIFT.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.
