ROW80 Update #ROW80

Good morning!

I’ve been working hard (kind of). I’ve actually been resting a lot too. I had surgery last week, and recovery has been slow. Here’s my mid-week update on what I’ve been doing.

For marketing, I’m learning about Amazon Ads, I’m looking at blog tours and a release event for De-Termination which is coming up QUICK! I got my pre-order links today.

I participated in a podcast of sorts! Chanel Ivy has a podcast where she reads the sexy parts of books, so I sent her over an excerpt from De-Termination for the month of October, a spooky scene with Faye & Molly pushing each other’s buttons and trying to entice the other to their own ways.

If you want to take a listen, go here! It was an interesting and fun experience.

I have been writing…slowly…Sun, Sea, and Gwyn. I’m almost done with chapter 3 as of this morning. I don’t know why this piece is so slow going compared to my normal writing, but it is. I’ve also been distracted with edits and market, so that might be why.

I started editing Broken & Wear (Missing Persons 2) yesterday. I’m 3 chapters in out of 21. Onward and forward.

Oh! Oh! I did get the first round of covers for Stone’s Mistake (Agent Morgan Stone 1) and I’m in love! Can’t wait to share it when I get the final version.

See you all Sunday!

Little fishies in the sea, all the wonders there can be #ROW80 update

Well, it’s Sunday. That means it’s time for a ROW80 update! w00t! I have gotten a lot done this week. A reminder of my goals…

1. Fallen from Grace: write 1 chapter a week (moving week excluded): I’m doing very well on this goal! One Wednesday I had already finished my one chapter. I’ve since finished chapter 10, chapter 11, and have started work on chapter 12. There’s only 4 chapters left to write and then it’s onto editing! Thank God my lovely beta’s have already been through the first five chapters.

2. Promo: Answer three interview questions a day until done: finished this all up this week because it was due!

3. Promo: Write out a guest post a week until done: finished this all up this week because it was due!

4. Lovely, Dark, and Deep short story needs to be written/plotted 2k a day due Aug 31st: I still haven’t started working on this. My guess is that’ll happen after I finish writing Fallen from Grace. I’m NOT one of those people who can work on more than one story at a time.

5. Paranormal Romance short story 2k/day due Aug 9th: We (I say that because this piece is co-written) have finally started working on this piece. We’re not quite hitting 2,000 words a day, but Thursday we hit 800 words, and Friday we hit 1931 words. Progress is happening and hopefully the story will be to beta’s soon.

That’s my update! Oh! And on Tuesday, I got to ride in a hearse. That was awesome, by the way. One of the best parts about my week!
