#ROW80 Check-in May 21st

Here we are with #ROw80 once again. This week’s been crazy busy for me. It’s been a bit of a blur.

The main thing I’ve been working on is promotions for Book 1 of my series, Fey Touched. I just put it into KDP Select and have my free days chosen. So I’ve been working like a madwoman trying to finding places to advertise. (If you’re willing to help with this, please let me know! You would have my undying gratitude.) I am hoping to pull in new readers to my series and hopefully sell more books!

Here is the rundown on the rest:

Secret project – up to 2,330 words so far! Yay!

Fireborn – I hope to look at this today.

Water – Missed one day, but nailed the rest!

Covenant – 626 words written today!

FYFB class – Nada again. It’s on my list, I swear.

I also started (or rather, restarted in a different format) my Fiction Friday series where I do quickie reviews of books I’ve read. Trying to branch out into other things that may appeal to readers. 🙂 I’ve done two so far. It’s looking like I will be posting every other Friday (to give me time to read. I’ve slowed down a lot lately). I hope this will be something fun and worthwhile.

How did your week go?

#ROW80 Check-in May 17th

EvT cover3 3-30-17 copyI am here, just busy. I’ve been working on getting reviews for Ever Touched, promoting, and trying to figure out what I want to do next.

I’ve been having severe eye pain again this week, and it has effected my productivity for sure.

I have a short story due to my editor on 6/1 that i still need to start.

Here’s the rundown:

Ever Touched – Released on 5/1 as planned! Yay! The print edition is also live as well.

Covenant – Will be on the back burner for now.

Fireborn – My next project. Probably a rewrite. I need to go through the entire manuscript and make notes and figure out what can stay and what can go. I am also going to run it through the “plotting through the middle” method and Holly Lisle’s Create Your Plot Clinic to see if I can come up with anything else that could help expand it. I’m looking at around 50k-60k (it is currently 23k now).

Water – Missed a few days this week, but the previous weeks right on!

FYFB class – Will try to get something done this week.

When She Sleeps – Going to plot this formally (I have a lot of it in my head right now!)

Secret Project – Remember this? I’ve resurrected this idea. I have a loose plot, and I will be working on it soon. Shooting for about 30k.

Chocolate consumption report – Chocolate ice cream sandwiches, chocolate fudge-covered cake, chocolate chip cookies, GF chocolate bars…wow. Not a lot. Must change that!

Would anyone be willing to review Ever Touched? :puppy eyes: Free copy + my eternal gratitude.

#ROW80 Check-in April 30th

It’s been awhile. I have been busy working on Ever Touched, which releases TOMORROW. ZOMG, it’s almost here!

I had an issue with Photoshop and my wrap cover for the print edition…it is finally resolved and a proof is on its way to me as I type this.

Yeah…

So here’s the rundown:

Ever Touched – Everything is done and ready for tomorrow, except for the print edition. Waiting on the proof.

Covenant – Nothing yet. Planning for after EvT’s release.

Fireborn – Will be a rewrite for sure. That’s all I know right now.

Water – Yes, for the most part.

FYFB class – Not yet, but it’s on my list!

I also have three two guest posts to write, so that’s happening. I wrote one last night.

Haven’t decided on whether I want to work on Fireborn or Covenant next. Covenant might go faster, since it’s drafting, but then again, parts of Fireborn are staying. So I don’t know. Will continue to ponder.

I also have two more books I am starting to plot, a rewrite of an old one called When She Sleeps and an older idea I’ve been dying to work on called Darkweaver. Stay tuned on those.

And it just dawned on me that this is my first check-in since posting my goals. Didn’t realize I was gone that long!

Chocolate consumption report: Ye Gods. Chocolate robin eggs (1 whole bag – but not at once!), hot chocolate, chocolate caramel thingies, chocolate ice cream brownie (Big Boy’s), chocolate donuts, chocolate-covered malted milk balls. I think that’s it.

#ROW80 Round 2 Goals

I’m a bit late posting my goals. I’ve been really busy with the edits on Ever Touched. I’m jumping in now!

I have fewer goals this go around to limit my stress level. I’ve been very stressed out in the past few months and need a break from it all.

So here are my goals:

~Publish Ever Touched on May 1st (on track to complete as of right now)
~Add 10k to Covenant
~Start formulating a plan for Fireborn (looks like a rewrite as of right now)
~Drink a glass of water 5x a week
~Start working on FYFB class once things settle down

And that’s it! No exercise-related goals yet because I seem to have reinjured my knee. 😦 Once that gets worked out, I may add an exercise-related goal to the mix.

I would also like to add in some mental downtime per week. I’m not making it an official goal, but we’ll see once Ever Touched is published. I had some of that with Guild Wars, but since I’ve been so busy with edits and such, I haven’t been able to play this week at all. So we will see on that as well.

And, as usual, the famous chocolate consumption report.
