Writing Update: June Goals / Reborn Blog Tour

 

Happy Wednesday!

Reborn is published. My blog tour posts are written for the most part, although I have two more interview question posts to answer. This week I'm trying to finish up my blog posts for June as well as edit the short stories for the upcoming UR anthology. Is it already too late to be looking forward to July after the release month pandemonium? *laughs*

Here are my June goals:
  • Write Repledged. I hope to have Repledged  finished by the end of June, so I can send Repledged to alphas #1 and #2 by the end of June or early July.
  • Write Remarked. If I finish Repledged early, then I'll be going back to Remarked, Book 1.5 of The Fate Challenges.
  • Edit two short stories a week in People of Foxwick and Their Neighbors. If I can keep that up, then I can finish my final edit by the end of July and move forward to proofreading. I'll also be going back over A - Z Flashes of Foxwick these next few months, so I can reformat them and publish them with their new cover (back cover of People of Foxwick).
  • Survive my blog tour. The tour runs through June 23rd and is on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I love blog touring, but it's also stressful too, so I'll be a bit glad when it's done.
What are your June goals?

Today for the Reborn Blog Tour, I will be at:

Untethered Realms' blog talking about improving your writing.
Catherine Stine's blog for an interview.
Karen Hooper's blog for an excerpt from chapter two.
Jess Haight's blog talking about how Reborn almost wasn't my first published novel.
Natalie Aguirre's blog for an interview.

Today's Reborn tidbit: Apenth (pronounced Ah-penth) is the number one god in Yssa's life. He brought her back to life, and he's the one who has a place in all the books at some point between The Fate Challenges and The God Challenges. A god of prophecy, wisdom, healing, and music, he seems like he can do it all, but he has his enemies too.

I've already visited several of your stops today!

Crystal Collier said...

Whew! I don't envy you, but I'm excited for you. I've seen several of the posts already and read and excerpt, and goodness am I stoked about your book.

Catherine Stine said...

Man, I wish I could write as fast as you do! My June goals? I'll be editing the next Art of Love book and starting work on a new adult historical with paranormal elements. I'm looking forward to delving into that. To prep for a writing stint, I'm reading like crazy right now. One bummer: I lost my Kindle charger, so I just had to order another. Hadn't realized how addicted to the Kindle I was.

Good luck with the blog tour!

My goal is to get my own blog tour posts ready - I am very much behind at the moment!

DMS said...

You are one busy lady! When I feel overwhelmed with the craziness going on in my life- I just need to look at your schedule and I feel a little better that someone else is just as crazy (or maybe crazier). ;) The next two weeks are so jammed with writing, events, and and regular work "things" that I am not sure how it will all get done! I am sure you feel the same way.

Wishing you the best of luck and congrats on your book. The tour sounds very exciting. :)

My June goals include two client edits and revisions on one of my own books using the feedback I got from my beta readers.

Congrats on your book release!

Natalie Aguirre said...

My goal would be just to survive the blog tour if I were you. But you're amazingly productive. Hope your blog tour goes well.

Sherry Ellis said...

You have a lot planned! I want to get at least three more chapters written in my current WIP by the end of June. I'd better get started!

Patricia Lynne said...

Good luck with your goals. I can't wait for my day of your blog tour. The interview was fun.

Meradeth Houston said...

Good luck surviving your tour :) It can be quite a lot of work! But I hope it's fun, too!!

Carol Kilgore said...

Wishing you all kinds of good luck with Reborn! You'll make your goals.

Survive the tour, lol. Wishing you major success. Remember us little folks... :D

Stephanie Faris said...

Release month is crazy, isn't it? I survived... I think I need to plan a long vacation after my next release!

Southpaw said...

That's a lot going on! Best of luck getting everything done.

Wishing you all the best! Yay!

Hey Cherie,

Like a starstruck fan, I shall follow around on the tour. You should be rightly proud of your book. A stunning cover, my friend.

Consider your post shared by this adoring, starstruck fan!

Cathy Keaton said...

I wish I could just write at will! Alas, my creative mind only lets me write when it feels like it, lol.

Just hang in there for another month and the blog tour will be over forever. That's pretty cool!

Medeia Sharif said...

You'll do well. You're very prolific. Blog tours are a lot of work.

Michelle Wallace said...

Good luck with everything Cherie!
...and I must say that your cover is striking!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Way to stay on track. I need some better way of keeping myself on task. I am so scattered!

Donna K. Weaver said...

You have a busy June planned!

Kate Larkindale said...

Sounds like you have a busy June ahead of you!

Empty Nest Insider said...

Good luck with your blog tour, Cherie! Wishing you much success with Reborn!

Good luck with all your June goals! I've never gone on a blog tour, but it definitely seems like something that'd be overwhelming to keep up with!
