ARCs of Reborn are with reviewers, and I'm gearing up for a couple more proofreads of Reborn before it's published in May. I've also been working a little bit on Reforged, Book Two of The Fate Challenges, and Remarked, The Fate Challenges #1.5 novella.
Here are my April goals:
- Proofread Reborn. I should have my print proof in a few weeks, so I can start reading it. It's amazing how much more you catch when you read your work in a different format. While I'm waiting, I'm planning to format Reborn for my Kindle again and do another read-through on it (perhaps even a text-to-voice read). I hope to have all proofreads and changes finished by the end of April or early May, so I can publish Reborn with plenty of time to get purchase links and the like to the wonderful bloggers helping me with my blog tour (May 23 - June 23).
- Write Reforged. My goal is to finish the first draft by the end of June, so I can do a read-through of it in late June/early July and send the manuscript to alpha reader #1. So for this month, I hope to finish my editing/rewrite through Chapter 16 and write a few more chapters in it.
- Finish writing Remarked. I want to get this novella written and to my alpha reader #1 in early May.
- Start writing guest posts for Reborn Blog Tour. The tour runs from May 23 - June 23, and I have quite a few guest posts to write up as well as interview questions to answer, so I thought I would start writing them now, so I can send the tour info out to bloggers as soon as I have purchase links.
And those who are participating in A-Z Blogging Challenge in April, have fun and I wish you loads of luck! We authors at Untethered Realms will be participating. There will be some group posts, and I will talk about Karshiptas on April 12 and Mephinas on April 15, two interesting creatures from The Fate Challenges' world.
What are your April goals? Are you participating in the A-Z Challenge?
