I live with a clock over my head. Tick, tock. Tick, tock.
My intention at the beginning of the summer was to come out with three books this summer. Ambitious, but doable. One was a collection of short stories that I had almost completed anyway. The second was a compilation of my counsel on writing that I have written in my blog in the past five years. The third is my book on David and Jonathan.
In addition, I had a magazine to complete, other school-related work, and home projects that I had committed to.
Well tick-tick, it’s July and I am more than halfway through the summer.
The magazine is finally put to bed. My home projects are about 80 percent done. And I have one of my two books out.
A Hole In the Sky and Other Stories is now available for 99 cents on Amazon and for free on Smashwords. Almost 200 people have downloaded it free in the past two weeks, so I am happy. It’s not perfect (some formatting issues) and I will be revisiting it soon.
Project 2, Write Thinking has a cover (almost) and is in page formatting stage. I just need to complete formatting, write back cover copy and finish up the cover. I hope to be out with it by this weekend.
Project 3–ehh, still not there. Chosen, my book on David and Jonathan is like a problem child. You love it, you can’t forget it, but it never does exactly what you want it to do. I am through chapter 5 and hope to be able to focus on it in weeks to come. Chances are, I will be tweaking it for a while before it sees the light of day.
So that’s what I’m doing these days.
