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): Three queries.
Yes. [Smile]

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE/THE VOICE OF PROPHECY: Find another place to try a promotion and apply.
Yes. $0.99 promotion on SciFiFantasyFreak.com February 4 thru 6. [Smile]

BEYOND THE PROPHECY (Briefly PATHS OF CHAOS): Complete two chapters (18 and 19).
Actually, I'm about half-way thru Chapter 21. [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]

Hmm, are we the only two willing to admit that we are working on novels?????


Anyway, actually I didn't this past week. I worked on getting reviews for my E-book "Above My Pay Grade X2" Looks like I will be getting two to four.


I need to place two of my WIPs on my new laptop so I can work on them at work.

Talked-via E-mail-with the person who will be doing the cover for the steampunk novel. I call it a novel but it's more of an anthology or some type of fusion of both. Five stories that come to around 55,000 words about the adventures of Lt. Tommy Tuckerknocker as he fights to protect his country from invasion.

Not true. I just haven't frequented in a while. Still editing my big novel, researching and beginning a new one, working on a short story for a publisher who is interested in my stories, and reading and critiquing 2 novels and a couple of short stories. . . All while doing a couple of cover illustrations and working my day job,and taking care of kids. (And I look up to busy people.)

That's Good.


I was wondering since the last three weeks, or so, have had only two people listed. I know how it is to be busy; somethings just have to be put off.
