The Road to Being Published

Hey all, sorry once again for not getting a post up on Monday. I spent the day recovering from my nephew’s and niece’s birthday party. More on that in a few days…

For now, it’s time for my weekly review of how far I’ve come this week. I love these. 🙂

Days of the Kill is still not on pre-order, but should be getting there soon. I have yet to see the cover, but it should be done soon, and I look forward to seeing it. My publisher has informed me that the book is set to be released the week of March 14, hopefully that day. So yay!

The Path to Biological is still going slowly. I managed to finish handwriting chapter 48, but haven’t done anything since then. There’s like 70-something chapters… So I still have a ways to go, but I’m working on it.

The Child of Fault is still on hold, which I’m hoping will change fairly soon. I enjoy that one, and I’m itching to get back to it. But I have other priorities first, so I focus on what I need to.

Bethany’s Corpse is still on hold as well. There’s a line of books in front of it, and I hope to get that done soon. It’ll take a few weeks, but hang in there with me. I’m working my way towards it.

Do You Remember Me is mostly on hold, and I’m still at about 18,000 words because I didn’t get to participate in the sprint last week. Bummer, but I’m hoping I get to do that tonight. I like sprinting with new words. 🙂

Living Through Abuse is on hold as well, but I plan on sprinting with it as soon as I’m done with the first draft of Do You Remember Me. I’m hoping we can keep up the sprints for a long time.

I didn’t get a lot done this week, but some is better than none. I’m hoping to get even more done next week!

Until then…stay tuned!

The Road to Being Published

I was planning on getting a post up on Monday, but of course, that didn’t happen. Oh, well. As long as I get to do this. I love this even if it doesn’t bring up very positive results. 🙂

I really didn’t get a lot done this week. I briefly wondered if it was even worth posting. I figured it was, since I still love doing this.

Days of the Kill is done. I’m still waiting to see the pre-order available, and I don’t know when that will be. I will be sure to let everyone know as soon as I can.

The Path to Biological is still being hand-written, and I’m still on chapter 40-something. I’m not positive how many chapters in I am for sure, but I’ll try to make sure I know for next week, and hopefully that will bring more positive results than lately.

The Child of Fault is still on hold because The Path to Biological is my main focus right now. I will definitely focus on this when I can. It’ll more than likely be when the other one is with a couple more beta readers that I have in mind. Not a huge formal beta reading thing, just a couple friends to look over it one more time. 🙂

Bethany’s Corpse is still on hold as well. I will work on that once The Child of Fault is with beta readers (whenever that is… I have no idea.). I’m hoping it’s soon. I enjoy that manuscript.

Do You Remember Me is going slowly. For the most part, it is on hold, but I work on that whenever I do a sprint with my Writing Accountability Group. I’m about 18,000 words in, I believe.

Living Through Abuse is on hold for now as well. Once I finish the first draft of Do You Remember Me through sprints, this will be the next one in line for that. It won’t be this week, but I’m hoping I can do another one next week.

I think that’s all for this week. It wasn’t much, but at least I did a little. Hopefully more next week.

Until next week…stay tuned!

The Road to Being Published

I’m finally getting back to doing the usual Wednesday thing of letting people know how far I’ve come in my journey to getting published. Man, I’ve missed these. 🙂

I’m kind of psyched about how far I’ve come since the last time I did this. I’m really excited to see how far things go!

Days of the Kill is days away from being available for pre-order! At least I hope. My publisher said that it should be a week to a week and a half until it is available, and that was a week ago today. But she was also waiting on a couple of things. So we’ll see. This is exciting. 🙂

The Path to Biological is going well. I’m in the fifth draft. Yeah. The fifth. Unfortunately, I’m handwriting it so it’s slow going. I’m changing it from first person to third. Yay. Fun task. I have like 30-something chapters to go. Thankfully they’re short!

The Child of Fault has been kind of on hold since The Path to Biological is my main focus, but I’m please with how it’s doing. I’m on the third draft, so it’s not too bad. But hopefully I can get back to it soon. 🙂

Bethany’s Corpse is going well. It’s kind of been on hold as well, but I’m still please with the progress. That’s on the third draft as well, so hopefully I’ll be able to get back to that pretty soon as well.

Since I’ve posted, I started on another one, Do You Remember Me. It has just over 17,000 words, and doing really well. I admit, it was originally for NaNoWriMo. Yeah, I totally failed. Oh, well. Life happens. This is kind of on hold as well as the others, but I usually work on it when my Writing Accountability Group has a sprint. So that’s always fun. 🙂

I have also started on another book, Living Through Abuse. That one is slow-going, but it’s also on hold, like the others. I’m trying to force myself to edit more than write new words currently, but once the first draft of Do You Remember Me is done, I’ll probably work on this during the sprints. 🙂

I’ve come so far, and I’m so happy with it! I’m hoping I can keep doing this well!

The (Almost) Published Life

Hey all, I’m so sorry I haven’t posted in so long! Life happened, and there was nothing I could do about it. Once I could, I was totally out of the blogging habit. All I could do was to force myself up and back into it. So here we go.

Big news, guys. The last you heard was that Days of the Kill was still with the editor. Well, that is no longer the case! The editor is done with the manuscript, I have read through the final copy, and I loved it. Now the fun part begins.

I have been putting promotion off like no other. I know, that’s a bad thing. But give me a break, I’m new at this and the promotion thing is a little bit daunting. Oh, and I also happen to be going through pretty much the busiest month of my life.

Thank God scheduling posts is a thing.

The bad thing about scheduling posts is, I forget to schedule them. I just have to remind myself to do it. I’m hoping I’ll remember to do it on Friday to schedule for Saturday since that’s when I’ll be out of town all day… Maybe I’ll actually remember this time. Unlike last week. Whoops.

This is a big month for me in the publishing world. Days of the Kill should be available for pre-order very soon! I don’t have the exact date yet, but I will definitely let you know when I know. 🙂

Pre-orders won’t be available for long, mind…but that’s because the book will actually be out in March! Again, I don’t have an exact date, but I will definitely say something about it when it happens. Also expect another tab right by the ‘about me’ once it’s available for pre-order. I’ll have a link to wherever it’s sold. No doubt. 🙂

I do believe that’s all the news I have. It’s a really exciting time for me and I wanted to get back into blogging, but I also had to share. I will start up my Road to Being Published series again on Wednesday. Until then…stay tuned!
