I’ve set a goal for myself.
I have a reading/Kindle party coming up on Sept. 8th at the Soundry. I’ve decided that instead of picking a different passage to read than I did on Jellyvision, I’m going to read the first chapter of the sequel. This means I have to have it done, edited, and be reasonably sure that it’s really the way I want it by September. With almost 2 months to do it, I’m not too worried it will get done.
I need to do a lot more self-promotion. This really doesn’t come naturally to me. I feel downright silly calling places on my own behalf. But I need to start booking conventions soon.
A couple days ago I began working on the sequel to Blood for the Living. I managed to get the first page of the first chapter done in the little time I had. But it was enough to get me excited about it! I’ve decided to pick up right where I left off the first book, starting the very next day.
Meanwhile, my laptop battery is refusing to take a charge, so I won’t be able to take it to McD’s to write. *sigh* Really need to find some time at home to sit down and write the chapters I’ve already run through my mind.
In other news, Dennis Sharpe & I are having technical difficulties with our competition. My publisher doesn’t put out sales data quickly enough, and they’re always more than a month behind. I won’t know my sales figures for up to the end of June until August 11.
I am in desperate need of an intern! There’s so much I want to get done for book promotion during the day & i just can’t get to it.
