Can you believe the year is almost over? I sure can't! Where did 2013 go?
This month I've been busy editing in Reborn. I swear I'm one of the slowest self-editors out there. I was hoping to take some time during my work vacation to relax, but I might have to work on some outlines and the like during my vacation. *sighs*
Here are my January goals:
- Final Edit of Reborn. I should get Reborn back from my beta readers after New Year's, so I'll be ready to do my final edit. Yes, this debut novel stuff is getting very real. Of course, it'll still have to go through the proofreader, several proofreads by me, formatting, and then publishing by May.
- Fix Part I of Reforged. I originally was going to work on Reigned, but I changed my mind. I'd rather work on book two of The Fate Challenges as I'm finishing up book one. Then, I can go back to Reigned and write Redestined after that, or vice versa.
- Finalize my outline for Redestined. Once I have the outlines the way I want them, then I can start exciting things like drawing the map of the Kingdom of Amora and writing books two and three of The Fate Challenges.
- Final edit and proofread Neighbors of Foxwick. In January, it'll be time to edit and proofread Neighbors of Foxwick, so I can start formatting and publishing this last short story collection in The Foxwick Chronicles. I do plan to combine Women of Foxwick, Men of Foxwick, and Neighbors of Foxwick in one collection (print/ebook) in Fall 2014, so if you'd rather wait for the entire collection, I'm cool with that. I just wanted to offer the other for those who have already picked up the first one or two in the series.
As for this blog, I'm dropping my schedule to posting one day a week: Wednesdays. Posting 4-5 times a month instead of 16+ will help me out a lot. I will have the occasional extra post, but I'll announce that before it happens. For a look at my 2014 blogging schedule, click here. With less posting spaces, I've also posted a page of Guest Post Guidelines. You can click here to view them. Of course, all of this is subject to change, but we'll see how it goes.
With the new year, I will soon be raising a few of my ebook prices in January, so if you've considered buying something, now is the time to do it. I'm taking Once Upon a December Nightmare off free. Gravity: The Complete Trilogy will go up from $2.99 to $3.99. Fighting Gravity will jump up to $1.99 and Pull of Gravity will be $2.99. That's all I plan to change right now, and theses changes won't happen until after the new year.
Also, today's my last post until IWSG and Indie Life's posts on January 8, 2014. Since I'm away from the day job and the good internet, it's just easier to not post during my vacation. I hope everyone has a fantastic holidays! See you in the new year!
