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): Complete at least the next step to set up a mailing list and start preparing first newsletter.
Um. Yeah. I've got to get on this. [Embarrassed] [Frown]

DUAL MAGICS SERIES: As time permits, go through the x-ray listings for the Dual Magics boxed set and THE BARD'S GIFT.
LOL. [Razz]

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: Finish and start the sequel BECOME: TO RIDE THE STORM.
Yes and yes! [Big Grin] [Cool]

Wide Distribution Project (redux): Prepare a schedule and to-do list for removing books from Pronoun (which has announced that it's shutting down), change the back matter again, and republish through Draft2Digital. I can't actually start moving the books until after a couple of promotions have run.
Yes. I've started removing five books off pronoun:
  • FIRE AND EARTH
  • THE BARD'S GIFT
  • DAUGHTER OF THE DISGRACED KING
  • BY SWORD, TALE, OR MAGIC
  • BECOME: BROTHERS
The first three are YA fantasies, BY SWORD, TALE, OR MAGIC is a boxed set containing those three, plus the short story "Becoming Lioness" (which I never took to wide distribution, anyway), and the fourth is the prequel to my current WIP.
I'm planning to put the YA stories back into Kindle Select, at least temporarily. Maybe BECOME: BROTHERS, too, since my WIP is unlikely to be ready for publication before May.
I've left all of the DUAL MAGICS series as is for this week, but I need to start the removal process on those, too, this weekend. Those are going straight to Draft2Digital as soon as they're cleared from all the places Pronoun distributed them.
That's the plan. [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):
Complete at least the next step to set up a mailing list and start preparing first newsletter. Really.

DUAL MAGICS SERIES:
As time permits, go through the x-ray listings for the Dual Magics boxed set and THE BARD'S GIFT.

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING:
Let it rest before beginning revisions.

BECOME: TO RIDE THE STORM:
Keep working. I urgently need to get a feel for how long this one is going to be as that could impact my publication schedule.

Wide Distribution Project (redux):
Final check that the five books I've removed already are cleared from other sites, then put them back into Kindle Select.
Remove all of the Dual Magics series from Pronoun and prepare to distribute through Draft2Digital.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

The project at hand moves apace. Full scene outline sketched; showed a few gaps, a few superfluous parts from a first assay. Storyboard next for a closer look for gaps and extras. Huzzah!
