There is not enough coffee in the world this morning.
Okay, so here's what happened last week in my world:
Has it only been a week? Sheesh.
Okay, so last Monday, my ad went up at Ereader News Today. Thanks to that ad, Dying Embers reached #9 on the Kindle/Mystery, Thriller, Suspense/Crime Fiction/Serial Killers list and #19 for all books on the same list. Plus, it was the #1692 in all books of any kind.
And since then, I've been hovering nicely in the 30s. Needless to say, I am now slightly obsessed with checking my sales, rankings, and reviews. We'll see if Dying Embers has any staying power after I raise the price tonight. (It's .99 now and will be going up to 2.99.)
Side-stepping my obsession for a moment, I also began work on a new book. I'm just under 3K words in and I'm loving it. What's the new book? Well, it's the next book in the Dennis Haggarty mysteries. The idea hit me and I ran with it.
Don't worry, I'm still working on editing Bloodflow for an Autumn Release.
In other news, our yard has been the local meeting ground for the area bucks this week. We've counted like 5 or 6 different individuals - judging by their different rack configurations. Their antlers are all soft and fuzzy looking, but some of these dudes are going to be racked up this fall. Little Elias has tiny antlers and he's still followed his mama around. Awww. Plus, we're seeing a new visitor - Teeny-Tiny Tina. She has to be a yearling doe, but she's so small, it's hard to tell she's not a fawn.
Back to book news... I received my box of paperback copies of Accidental Death. I still have to contact the winner of the newsletter contest to let her know she won a copy. Other copies will be going in the mail tomorrow.
I also heard from the cover artist for Wish in One Hand and I should be seeing a draft copy of that soon.
Oh, and the editor for WIOH is slaving away. Mid-August is still the tentative release date - barring Armageddon.
What's up in your world?
