As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

DUAL MAGICS SERIES (THE SHAMAN'S CURSE, THE VOICE OF PROPHECY, BEYOND THE PROPHECY,and WAR OF MAGIC): Waiting for ACX to approve the audio files. Once that happens and I get the rest of the series up on Pronoun, I need to plan a promotion.
Still waiting. Had to re-approve after a small file encoding issue was fixed. [Frown]

Wide Distribution Project: Get WAR OF MAGIC and the DUAL MAGICS boxed set up on Pronoun. Probably the short story "Modgud Gold" too.
Yes! And a few sales, too. [Big Grin]

BECOME: BROTHERS: Promote on social media.
Oops. Not really. [Frown]

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: Write this new chapter. It's only a first draft. Just write it.
Um. Thinking back. Yeah, I wrote that chapter, another scene and I'm about halfway through another new chapter. [Big Grin]

MAGE STORM: Probably nothing this week.
Good call. [Smile]

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

Next Week's Goals:

DUAL MAGICS SERIES (THE SHAMAN'S CURSE, THE VOICE OF PROPHECY, BEYOND THE PROPHECY,and WAR OF MAGIC):
Plan promotions as soon as ACX approves the audio files for THE SHAMAN'S CURSE.

Wide Distribution Project:
Start preparing the files for FIRE AND EARTH, THE BARD'S GIFT, DAUGHTER OF THE DISGRACED KING, and the boxed set BY SWORD, TALE, OR MAGIC. There's no rush. I can't go wide with these until after July 17th.

BECOME: BROTHERS:
Promote on social media.

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING:
Keep on writing.

MAGE STORM:
Probably nothing this week.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

I decided it was time to stop wrestling with 'Warspawn', so I'm moving on to other things. I want to write out a complete first draft for "The Rebirth and Tragedy of Fervor". After that I'm going to dive headfirst into my novel project. Forget NaNoWriMo--I'll be lucky if I can finish a first draft by the end of the year, and I really don't expect to manage that. I refuse to quit while I'm ahead this time, though.

My goals for this week involve outlining. I want to outline my short story and let the outline for my novel simmer as well.

Finished The Courier now to decide do I try to find a grammar etc editor, or just try it myself or ??? Money is part of the issue about an editor. I need to do some advertising too.

Over a third of the way done with the revisions of Journey of Mystery.

did no work on that steampunk, dragon punk, history fiction thingie with no title I am doing.

Did a tiny bit of work revising on one I am calling Urban Alchemist .
