Hey guys, I know it’s been a while…a long while. I’ve been having some problems with my mental health (bipolar 2 disorder), but I think I’m finally back on the saddle!
During this time away from you all, I have finished the rough draft and first draft of Lost, I am editing Taken, and I’ve finished the rough draft of Found and am working on the first draft. Oh, and I published the rewrite of Stolen. I’m a bit behind my publishing schedule, because I was hoping to release Taken at the end of April, but it looks like it will be an end of the summer publish. Hopefully the other two books will be done about that time, so I can get them out quickly soon after.
Now that school’s out for the summer, I am back to waking up early to get writing and editing it, so hopefully I can get some books finished by the end of the summer!
Well, the year is almost over, and so is Lost and Found! I am now past the 15000 word count mark on Lost, and I’m working on the outline of Found. I’m writing about 500 words a day right now, and am over half way done with the rough draft. Once that’s done, I’m edit Taken one more time, then send it out to betas- hopefully before New Years, then the editor twice, and then formatting, all before April. I might even release it a little earlier if I get signed up for a signing event before it’s chosen release date!
As mentioned in a past recent entry, Finding Grace is now wide, so you can get it through most ebook sellers. I’ve decided to try to run an ad every week, even if it’s just a $5-15 dollar budget. It’s a good place to start with advertising, and if it works, I’ll add more money or try for the more costly advertising varieties.
I’ve had a new med added to my Lamectal, call Abilify. I’ve been more productive on it, and have been writing more, but recently (I’ve been on it a few weeks now), I’ve had this cloud in my head that coffee and aromatherapy is not getting rid of , though both do help.
Oh, and I made salsa!
