Managed to work on three novels this week.

Typed out the acknowledgments, authors's page, who this writer is and placed them altogether with the novel. Two people do have it to review. One has a slightly modified version though since I found two places where there was a time displacement and corrected that.


I also started a new chapter for Insane. The idea came to me to use Chap one as a prologue and start the main book with what is now chap two. My hero has a box she found and so I would use a later flashback to show how she got it. Or I will just add to the original chap one.

Worked a bit on the steampunk-dragonpunk-UF-historical fusion with no title yet too. My hero is about to be sent to a battle unit during WWI.
