Sunday Update - Week 22

Here we are again at the start of another week.  Time to look back on what's happened in the past seven days...

I went fishing three times last week.  Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.  That last time, I went by myself because Hubs had work he needed doing, but I was driving myself nuts, so I loaded up the gear and took off.  It was totally unproductive fishing-wise.  I caught three fish in four hours.  But I finally managed to clear my head.  I'm still not sure where SCIU3 is going, but last night, I got back to work on my edit notes for Up Wish Creek.  Got those finished finally.  Now I need to read through it all again, add some flavor, and then I can send it to AWE. 

My ad for Dying Embers in the Robin Reads newsletter did pretty well.  I gained 148 sales on the day of the ad, and I've had some nice residual follow-through afterwards.  So, that paid for itself.  I sent a request to them for another ad - this time for Accidental Death.  We'll see if they accept my ad and how sales are for that book.  I also sent a request to an different and untried marketing venue I heard about on Kboards - Reading Deals.  Fingers crossed with that.

Dying Embers, btw, is back at $2.99, and Accidental Death has now been dropped to $0.99.  I'll probably leave AD there for at least a month.  Or a sufficient time after my ad runs on Robin Reads (could be end of the month... they'll let me know.)

I broke the left nose-guard thing off my glasses.  Not a huge deal, but it does remind me that I need to go get new glasses.  Probably bi-focals.  Ugh.  I'll set that appointment up tomorrow. 

That's all I got this morning.  There were probably other things, but the coffee hasn't kicked in all the way yet.  What's up with you?


  1. Words. I'm behind. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. I gave up yesterday afternoon, crawled back into bed, and slept for a couple of hours to make up for the sleep I'm losing at night because I'm stressing over this book. :-P

    At least I figured out this next scene. I'm hoping to hit the ground running as soon as I get off the net. I want to go fishing. Not really, but I'd like to sit next to water and One of these days.


    1. Keep banging away and sleep when you can. Sorry you're so stressed. :hugs: Yay for figuring out the scene, though! I would definitely recommend some sitting on the water time when you get a chance - whether you're drowning worms or not.

  2. Yay for an ad that worked! Double yay for clearing your head. ;-)

    The nonfiction is moving along slowly, but it's moving. I took an unplanned day off today - my sister dragged me out of my hermit cave and we drove a couple of hours to a huge flea market. I fell in love with an old brass genie lamp, so she got it for me for my eventual birthday. Now I just need to think up a good wish, and not for unlimited wishes! :-)

    1. Thanks, Deb!

      Yay for it moving, however slow. Ooo, I love flea markets. And I am super jealous of your genie lamp. LOL, yeah, no unlimited wishes. ;o)
