=-=-=-=-=


As for me.

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. I need to start planning and preparing for the release. I mean to do a better job of it this time. [Smile]

BLOOD WILL TELL: 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.
Continued serialization. Haven't really done much about the audio book, yet. I may want to start with FIRE AND EARTH instead. [Smile]

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

THE BARD'S GIFT: One final read-through. Send out three queries.
Three queries out. First request. Yay!!! Read-through continuing, but nothing major turning up. [Big Grin]

MAGE STORM: Wait for feedback.
Ongoing.

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

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

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

Yes to both. [Smile]

Next Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS):
Start planning an e-book release. Continue serialization on Wattpad to hopefully build up a little interest.

BLOOD WILL TELL:
Contnue serialization.

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.

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". Past 25,000 words, so it's definitely either a novella or a novel.

Been waiting for this thread this week. [Wink]


Worked on Angel Kin

Worked on Stone Within

Worked on Two Struggles

Worked on Second Career--other wise known as my NaNo novel and SC--those two letters are different from Second Career.

Angel MC is about to fight a griffin--maybe make friends with it instead--yeah she can learn Griffin. It's the first Myth she has ever seen in person. Actually second but she still has to figure out what the first one is--she still thinks he's a stalker even if it's one who helps her.

Stone MC is about to fight an Orc--armored and armed.


Restarted the crit revision of Struggles. Still having problems knowing where to put certain back ground info of my MC.

Started first revision of Career. If they rest of it is like the first part of the first chapter it's going to take a lot longer than I hoped.

So far my MC is headed down the highway to warn a friend on the way the reader learns a few things about my MC. Like he bought one of the very first motorcycles and that he has been fighting for Humanity for a hundred years or so.
