Let's see... Week 7...
Well, I got the edit notes entered for Fertile Ground and sent it to my Kindle for further noting before I have to send it to my editor-person. I have not yet looked at it on the Kindle. I have until Thursday.
On Thursday, I should be getting In Deep Wish back from my editor-person. Then I'll be entering her pretty pink edit notes.
Starting yesterday, Dying Embers is free through the end of today. Worldwide. I'll be doing a breakdown of that tomorrow. Suffice it to say, as of last night, Dying Embers was #1 in Mystery-Thriller-Suspense/Crime/Serial Killers, #4 in all Crime, #25 in all MST, and #92 in All Kindle free Books. I hope it translates to actual sales down the road. I do know that it got some Kindle Unlimited people reading pages yesterday, so that's something. I've also gotten a new review at Amazon and a new rating at Goodreads. Win-win.
Accidental Death dropped off Kindle Select on Thursday, so I took it to Draft2Digital for a wider distribution. Then I got a note saying Apple really prefers not to have competitor links in the books it sells, which was a total DERP moment for me, because I knew that. So I went into the file to change that and realized there was a bunch of other stuff that needed changing - back matter, formatting to a more professional level, etc. I did all that and uploaded it everywhere it needs to be. It's live on Amazon. I'm waiting for it to be live on Kobo, B&N, and Apple. Then I'll post the links.
Oh, and I tweaked the cover. All I really did was take the mauve wash off the black and white image. It's starker this way.
I did something active every day last week. Although, Wednesday was lame with only 8 minutes of exercise and Thursday I only did a 3000 step walk. (Which for me is a little under 1.5 miles - I have shorter than average steps.) But those days count because I did something active.
Friday I did our taxes. It only took two hours because I'd done all the organizing ahead of time.
Looking ahead, I have to do a newsletter this week. In it, I'll have the cover for In Deep Wish and a short excerpt. I'm still aiming for a release date of March 15th. And hitting it shouldn't be a problem. I should have it available for pre-order on the 4th. That should be enough time to fix all the stuff, format all the stuff, etc. Keep your fingers crossed.
Any updates for you?
