I’m already off schedule. (Go figure)
Am I surprised? Nah. I think the word is expected. I should’ve expected to get bumped off my own schedule. It was only a matter of time. So what happened? Well, the goal is to have the ARC of A Royal Pairing in Perish done in time for its February 17th date. Of course, that date is arbitrary (no one is banging down my door asking for it) so I can push it back if need be. But stiiillllllll. I wanted to keep to my schedule. And no, it’s not Yellowstone this time. It’s the actual writing.
I’d just finished going through In The Moment During, and can’t decide if I’m missing the last chapter/a bonus chapter/something. So, I started writing it…which led to outlining In The Moment After which NEEDS TO HAPPEN, but I’d designated this time (officially the start of this week) to focusing on A Royal Pairing in Perish since it’s releasing right around the corner. I still need to:
- Implement final edits
- Work on backmatter (info at the end of book)
- Finish up my Reader Magnet (part of backmatter)
- Set up pre-order for In The Moment During (part of back matter)
Things. There are so many things to be done. And this is just the writing part. Not to mention any kind of advertising for any of the series/learning to do Facebook ads which I’M STILL GOING TO LEARN.
All I need is more time. Anywhere we can buy that? (Please let me know if you know).
…Maybe I will push the ARC date back to 2.24. That would be a solid month prior to the book’s actual release, and again, no one is holding me to it. I’m holding myself to these deadlines, but I also don’t want to rush and provide a subpar product. That simply won’t do either.
There. I feel better having talked it out. Thank you guys – you’re the best! 😊
Other than writing-stuff, life is good. Appa is still acting weird. He’s had a few accidents in the house, and is now starting to shake like he’s got Parkinson’s. I have no idea what’s going on with him, but hopefully it corrects itself. Or the drugs we’re buying him corrects it. Something has to give.
Batman is doing well. He’s working on his own stuff and it seems to be making him happy. Which makes me happy.
Alright…seems to be everything I’ve got. Recap: I’m:
- Already behind schedule
- Will update schedule
- Still going to crush this year
At the end of the day, I’m still going to write you stories. Top priority. Feel safe and loved knowing that.
Second newsletter goes out on Monday (still need to write that…) and then I’m back here next Wednesday. Have a lovely, lovely day, guys.
Make that week.
Actually, make it month.
Ah, screw it. Life.
Have a lovely, lovely life, guys.
