In between binge watching The Closer and doing some long-neglected work around the house, I’ve been getting some serious author-type work done.
I’ve been trying to write at least 1000 words a day, which isn’t a lot, but there’s always the option to do more than that. I’ve been prepping my next release, sorting through book cover options, and making plans for my work load over the next several months.
In the meantime, I’ve finally brought some of my other works to wide distribution. I’ve released three more books through Smashwords, which will eventually be made available through other channels such as Barnes and Noble and iBooks. These are The Needle’s Eye, Dark Depths, and the new version of The Nutcracker Bleeds. I could not release The Hallowed because it’s still under KDP contract until August. Because of that though, The Hallowed is free this weekend, Saturday and Sunday (June 2 and 3) only. Get your copy while you can, and if you’d be willing to leave a review, I’d really appreciate it! (That one doesn’t have any reviews on Amazon yet. 😦
As of now, I feel I have a pretty strong plan for releasing a book every 3 months. I’m going to try that, but if that becomes too much, I’m going to go to 6 months. Either way it works out, I hope to continue on this way. I’m going back to doing this because I want to and need to, not out of desperation for finding some way to make money. I think I’ll be happier if I can revert to that mindset.
My next book is planned for August, and I’ll likely be announcing it in my next post! I’m planning for it to be up for pre-order at that point as well. I’m still editing, but it’s in great shape so I don’t think it will need much.
In conclusion: New book! New book release! New plan! The Hallowed will be free on Amazon this weekend!
Thanks for all your support!
