Writing Update: October Goals

Happy Wednesday!

I've finished my final edit and first two proofreads of People of Foxwick and Their Neighbors. As soon as I get my final cover art from my brilliant cover artist, then I can purchase my print proof and finish my final proofread before publication. While I'm waiting on the print proof, I plan to write Remarked.

Here are my October goals:
  • People of Foxwick and Their Neighbors - Once I get my print proof, I will do my print proof proofread, make changes to the document, and upload the final draft to Createspace. I'll also create my e-copies to upload. I plan to put People of Foxwick on pre-order (ebook only) with an official release date of December 9, 2014. During the pre-order period, people can purchase the ebook for $0.99, for a savings of $3.00. I'll press publish on the print book close to December 9th.
  • Remarked - I hope to finish the first draft of Remarked, then finish People of Foxwick, and then type up and edit the second draft of this novella. I hope to send it to my alpha readers by the end of October.
My main goals revolve around People of Foxwick first and then Remarked second.

What are your goals for October?

Just a couple months away!
You have the coolest covers...

Hart Johnson said...

Man, you are making me feel REALLY disorganized--Setting up pre-order? Publish date 2 1/2 months out... significantly more intentional than I seem to manage. I think I need some of that.

Nicole Zoltack said...

I adore that cover! It's poster worth.

Christine Rains said...

LOVE that cover! Can't wait for this collection's release. It's fantastic. My goal for October is to catch up on my writing that I couldn't do this month. =P

Natalie Aguirre said...

You do have awesome covers. And sounds like this will be a productive few months. Awesome you're planning another book release. Let me know if you want me to shout out about it in follower news at release time.

Congratulations on finishing your final edit, Cherie! Will keep a lookout for your upcoming releases. And don't worry, I haven't forgotten about Reborn. I'm still clearing my plate before I can dive into it!
October is very busy for me. Although I would like to touch back with my WIP, I have way too much stuff to do for my children's work, including a radio talk show for promoting. I also have to start booking schools so my 5am writing will have to be pushed back to November. BUT, I will be blogging about the fall and Harvest time because this is my favorite season.

Sarah Foster said...

I have to agree with everyone--your covers are awesome! I need to start planning my goals for October. I really want to get a lot done.

M Pax said...

You are a busy author :)

October... Write 2 short stories and get at least 30K into the next Backworlds.

DMS said...

How exciting! I am constantly amazed at how much you get done. I am hoping to get 1/3 of my ms written in October. If I make my goal I will be thrilled. Good luck to you!

Patricia Lynne said...

Good luck with your goals! My goal is to survive this week because 2 coworkers are now out sick. x_x

Cathy Keaton said...

Hope you can make your goals. I'm planning on actually writing in October, starting on a new series. I've reached an impasse with my novel that requires serious rethinking of the last quarter to even write. Ugh. I hate when this happens.

Kyra Lennon said...

Good luck with your goals!

Sherry Ellis said...

Congrats on finishing your edit, along with the first couple of proofreads! How cool that People of Foxwick and Their Neighbors will be out so soon. Good luck with it, as well as Remarked! :)
