Posting a little early so I won't forget this week.

Last Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Start working on cover art and planning an e-book release.
Cover art done, provisionally. I also put the first chapter up on Wattpad. I already have a fan! [Big Grin]

BLOOD WILL TELL:
Figure out how I want o proceed on a couple of ideas coming out of IndieReCon.
Not much progress this week. [Frown]

BLOOD IS THICKER: Let it cool before going back for the next round.
Easy goal. [Smile]

THE BARD'S GIFT: One final read-through. Send out three queries.
Three queries out. Final read-through ongoing. [Smile]

MAGE STORM: Wait for feedback. Think about another approach.
Ongoing

MAGIC'S FOOL: Edit the handful of chapters I've done. The character voice is too young.
Nothing this week. [Frown]

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Continue work on "Magic and Power".
Yes to both. [Smile]

Next Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS):
Start working on cover art and planning an e-book release. I may start serializing this one on Wattpad, too, to build up a little pre-release interest.

BLOOD WILL TELL:
Figure out how I want to proceed on a couple of ideas coming out of IndieReCon.
I started serializing BLOOD WILL TELL on Wattpad. Next up, investigate finding a narrator for BLOOD WILL TELL on audio books. Someone who'll work for a share of the royalties.

BLOOD IS THICKER:
Let it cool before going back for the next round.

THE BARD'S GIFT:
One final read-through. Send out three queries.

MAGE STORM:
Wait for feedback. Think about another approach.

MAGIC'S FOOL:
Edit the handful of chapters I've done. The character voice is too young.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Continue work on "Magic and Power", probably a novella, that I just started.

Just as well get this done now.


Worked on my two novel WIPs. It just so happens that both of them are in non-action scenes. In one you see one reason why my MC makes a certain decision later.

In the other my MC meets her new "dog" friend. She doesn't know who it is yet though, probably won't learn that for a couple of chapters.

In both I need action. So I introduced mythical creatures in one...my MC has to fight a griffin. But since both WIPs take place in the same universe there can me such creatures. In the other WIP my MS will be frighting some type of warrior from another dimension.
