Week 24. The squirrel invasion is upon us.
Sorry. I just felt the need to say something weird.
Anyway, this past week was a blur. I did some stuff, I wrote some stuff, I edited some stuff. I woke up this morning in a total meh mood. Still, you came here expecting something and I'd be a shit if I didn't provide.
I'm up to almost 13K on the WIP (work in progress). It's the sequel to Accidental Death, so the second in what I'm calling the Dennis Haggarty Mysteries. And the title I'm working with right now is Natural Causes. I'm really enjoying writing this. I hope people will enjoy reading it.
Unfortunately... I got the first round of edits for Wish in One Hand. Since that sucker is due to come out in August, it takes precedence. I started that last night. Made it 46 pages in, wanted to tear out my own eyes and flagellate myself with them, so I stopped. I will resume this morning. After coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
It's summer so we're trying not to smoke in the house again. Which means right now, typing this, I want a cigarette so bad I'm twisting inside like a man with the DTs. I write better when I can chain smoke. Yeah, yeah, whatever you're thinking, keep it to yourself. I'm a smoker. Deal with it. =op As I told my doctor the last time we met, during which she was suggesting various ways for me to quit, "All of this makes the assumption that I want to quit. Which I don't."
I have a week long ad thing starting tomorrow at Indie Author News. I just went with a simple sidebar ad. We'll see how it goes. Oh, and this one is for Dying Embers.
I'm supposed to have an ad going up at another place, and it was supposed to be up within 24 hours of them receiving payment. I paid them Friday. Still no ad. That one is for Accidental Death. If I ever see it, I'll let ya know. If not, I'll let you know that, too, so you don't run into the same problems. None of us can afford to pay for something we don't receive. Know what I mean?
Sales have fallen off since my last paid at Ereader News Today. I expected that. ENT did an awesome job of reaching new readers and gaining me some sales, so I'm pleased. I just wish I could advertise AD there - but I can't discount that right now, and it doesn't have enough reviews to get accepted for an ad yet anyway. :shrug:
Sorry if this came off a bit bitchy. We can't all be sunshine and light every day. Today's not my day. We'll see about tomorrow.
How are things in your world?
