Snagged the app for my new phone. I’m quite pleased with this thing.
Any who, with the app and data I can make blog posts again!
I’m supposed to be writing Death Mask to finish that series off. I’m not certain that I can get the same effect from writing it on the computer as I can on my phone. It’s the focus that the phone draws in because I don’t have so many other things going on.
My main problem with that at the moment is that my autocorrect is new, and not yet driven insane by my style. I’ll bring it around, though. Soon it will be writing full sentences and actually capitalizing after periods!
You’d think capitalization would come standard.
With Contract Broken launching today at midnight, it’s gotten me thinking about my publication schedule.
I want to publish often, that was the point of writing a book a month. It’s always been the editing that catches me up. Another problem is that every once in a while, things just stop working. It happens, and it sucks.
The past two and a half months have been an example of that. I’ve written At Death’s Door but that was on my phone during commutes. I might as well have been reading the thing for the first time.
And that’s why I want to continue writing on my phone.
At the same time, nothing got done at home. stuff happens, you end up playing games because the words just don’t come.
So I don’t think I’m going to be able to maintain one book a month. Okay, that’s fine because that’s how that goes. Guess those are now the rules.
I still want to launch as often as possible. At least I’m writing full novels and not ten thousand word snippets.
Oh, and then there are the snippets, starting to come to me and I may just give in and publish those too.
I like my day job, I’m just tired of getting up at 6am every day and being exhausted and walked all over for a job no one but me even cares about. I’d rather work part-time, and snippets are faster to write and edit.
I’m considering it, is all I’m saying. I definitely would not stop writing the novels. Me? Stop writing novel length works? Ha!
At this point the plan is:
Masked Intentions – January
At Death’s Door – February
Morgan’s Story? – March
Death Mask – April
Maybe snippets throughout. Maybe Signed in between.
Signed is a trilogy I’ve been debating writing. It’s basically Nathaniel’s story but is not a complete recounting. The first comes before Izzy, the second during the events of Contract Broken, and the third afterward. I’m just not certain yet if anyone would be interested.
Oh, and maybe Angel in between or afterward. I didn’t start it last night, so okay, let’s set this up for me.
I will start working on Angel on December 1st. December is the busiest month of the year for us at the day job, so I’m not expecting to write it in a month. There.
There’s already that tingle down my spine and the whining voices of the muses at the back of my mind. This is what they get for not writing for two months.
That’ll also give me more time to plan the series out. Which means I could be cast out to May, maybe June if I can get Cheating Death written.
I was talking to at friend recently who knew I’d be getting into Romance publishing and she inquired so I told her about the next launch.
“Oh? Is that all? That doesn’t sound like you.”
“And another next month, editing one for January, planning the world of another, writing another, have one sitting for editing, oh and the side project.”
“That sounds like you! At least you’re publishing them instead of just writing them and then leaving them on drives laying about my house.”
“Is that like my telling you to stop tearing up your drawings?”
“Shut up, they’re terrible.”
“That’s totally why I’ve got them hanging on my wall.”
The long and the short of it is that I have plans for more launches and very soon. Well, soon in publishing.
Beth publishes one or so books a year. I’ve got three this year and six planned next year. Different genres, though. Different authors too.
Good luck to me, I feel like I’ll need it.
