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.
Still waiting. It's only been 12 weeks. [Frown]

MAGIC AND POWER: Send out three more queries.
No. I missed this goal this week. [Frown]

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Come up with some new promotions to try.
I somehow reached the point where Amazon's algorithms sell it for me. [Big Grin]

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #1,290 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)

#13 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Sword & Sorcery
#16 in Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Sword & Sorcery
#25 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Coming of Age

I will also be taking part in a virtual book fair on Facebook this weekend.

DREAMER'S ROSE: Pause, for now.
Easy one. [Smile]

THE IGNORED PROPHECY: Keep working through this first draft of the rewrite. Let's say through Chapter 50.
I'm actually just finishing up Chapter 53, but I did skip over a new one that I have to write. I just don't have the scenes in my head, yet.

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.
Ongoing. [Smile]

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

All in all, a very good week.

Next 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.

MAGIC AND POWER:
Send out three more queries.

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE:
Enjoy the ride. This is the last week TSC will be only $0.99.

DREAMER'S ROSE:
Pause, for now.

THE IGNORED PROPHECY:
Finish this first draft of the rewrite.

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.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Well, I hardly got anything at all done last week and I have no immediate goals for this week except recovering from being hammered at work. Me thinks I need to find a quieter life.

Phil.

Little done with houseguests all month.

Did some editing on Moonstone making sure that the MC had more 'head time' and softened up the female lead a bit. Will continue to do that in the coming week.
