Sorry to be late again. My internet access is still acting up. Let's see if it stays up long enough to actually post this this]/I] time. [Frown]


As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

MAILING LIST: Realistically, nothing is going to happen on this for at least the next two weeks. See BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING below.
Good call. And probably longer. May need to find a new mailing list provider, too. [Frown]

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

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: Complete a polishing edit and get the final version up on Amazon. Also set up pre-order through Draft2Digital. Get the back matter on the rest of my published works revised.
Polishing edit done. Final version uploaded to Amazon and Draft2Digital. CreatSpace proof ordered. [Big Grin]
Nothing yet on the backmatter of other works on Draft2Digital. [Frown]

BECOME: TO RIDE THE STORM: Get back to work on this.
Yes . . . barely. [Big Grin]

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

Next Week's Goals:

MAILING LIST:
Heard some bad things about Mailerlite. Might need to find another mailing list service before moving on.

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:
Promote through social media. Check print proof when it arrives.

BECOME: TO RIDE THE STORM:
Read through what's already written and move forward.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Boy more behind than I have been for awhile.

But not much to say on novels. Supposedly there are some beta readers who want to beta read but so far none have stated how to send the novel to them--as in e-mail address or?

Started what will probably be a novel. A djinn is human again-not totally since he still has much of his powers but he can have a body if he wants. Hundreds of years ago he was a normal guy while journeying set off a trap a wizard and djinn laid. Not totally sure why they teamed up for this but there it is. Once in the trap they turn him into a djinn. So he is stuck that way for hundreds of years. Until one of his masters uses a wish to set him free. Now he can be pretty much what he wants. Djinns are not all powerful and one that was a human is even less than one that is a natural energy being and there are rules. He can only change into a creature close to his size as a human. No insects, germs, full size dragons, whales etc. So it's almost like he was a human wizard. So now its 2018 and he has learned a lot but still so much has changed since his youth. And he wants to help everyone.
