As for me.

Last Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM: Hold until after I have a draft of Book 3 of the Dual Magics series.
Easy one. [Smile]

DAUGHTER OF THE DISGRACED KING (Formerly MAGIC AND POWER): Hold off on queries while I decide whether to self publish.
Another easy one. [Smile]

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE/THE VOICE OF PROPHECY: Prepare for the promotion on SciFiFantastyFreak.com
The promotion is on now. TVoP is only $0.99 thru tomorrow. [Smile]

BEYOND THE PROPHECY (Briefly PATHS OF CHAOS): Let's stretch just a little. Three more chapters--24, 25, 26.
Yes. I'm actually in the middle of Chapter 27. [Big Grin]

"Modgud Gold": Tie-in story to the DUAL MAGICS series. Continue revision. I'd like to have this one ready to publish sometime in the Spring.
Nothing again this week. [Frown]

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

Next Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM:
Hold until after I have a draft of Book 3 of the Dual Magics series.

DAUGHTER OF THE DISGRACED KING (Formerly MAGIC AND POWER):

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE/THE VOICE OF PROPHECY:
Assess the results of the promotion on SciFiFantasyFreak.com

BEYOND THE PROPHECY (Briefly PATHS OF CHAOS):
Finish Chapter 27 (I have a fight scene coming up) and three more chapters--28, 29, 30.

"Modgud Gold":
Tie-in story to the DUAL MAGICS series. Continue revision. I'd like to have this one ready to publish sometime in the Spring.

I waited a couple of days to post this since I am still working on different novels and one novel-like piece.

I keep forgetting to load two WIPs to my laptop so I just started one later in the tale. I know the ending pretty much so I started what will be the last chapter. I am still not sure about that novel. It's coming out with less action and more dialogue--inner and outer than usual.


I am also still revising and adding on to "Learning CurveX2". Finished the third chapter which didn't take as much work as the first two chapters.

And I discovered that my Steampunk Sp Ops stories aren't all revised after all. I either forgot I didn't do a couple, the changes won't saved or I just did a lousy job on story number four anyway.
