First Chapter is Done!

Well, I finished the first chapter of the sequel to “Blood for the Living” – then I gave it a title.

Feeding the Moon, Chapter 1 is now up for download on Kindle!

The downside: I didn’t realize that the minimum I could set the price was 99 cents. The first chapter is only 3 pages. It’s just supposed to be a teaser, a quick beginning to a new, fast-paced book. 3 pages doesn’t seem worth 99 cents to me. Not sure what I’m going to do about that. I don’t have time this weekend to pound out a Ch. 2.

The upside: The first chapter went really well! I can’t wait to write the rest of the book! I have so many ideas for it.

<– Put together the temporary cover using the original background art by Theresa Zbiciak & a moon photo & lights by Katherine Gray. The photo of the couple is a heavily cut-out photo that I’d also used for the original temporary cover of “Blood for the Living.”

I plan on reading the 1st chapter at the Soundry’s Reading is Sexy Kindle party on Sept. 8th. The idea is that people can read along on their Kindles. But 99 cents still seems steep.

In other news, I finally received the header for my display case. Unfortunately, they didn’t quite change it the way they said they would. They did add the line that it’s available for ebook, but instead of replacing the text, they put it in small print next to it. *sigh* At least they added the QR as promised!

Sequel Started!

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.
