I haven't started writing a new book yet, but I've been working on a lot of different things. Some of my work last week and this week is preparation for a board meeting of one of my writing groups. We only meet three time per year so there's a lot to cover. But there are other writing things I'm getting done before diving into a new WIP and looking back and forward to things happening and that have happened in my career.
By the numbers:
2 books I have a rough outlines and some plot completed.
3 online classes I've signed up to take over the next five months. Two have to do with marketing.
1 new contract for my most recent completed novel.
1 of my older titles available on KU for the first and limited time. The Marine's Queen was my first bestseller romance.
2,000 books on my TBR list. That's an estimate.
3 publishers who have closed their doors when they held my books under contract. Sigh.....
10.5 years since my very first book, The Greater Good was published. And it still earns some royalties every quarter.
23 books that I've written that have been published by various small presses. Still not rich or famous.
10 weeks until one of my favorite shows, The 100, returns to TV.
4 times I've re-watched season 7 of Game of Thrones. I embarrass myself.
This week I'm going to so some more plotting and next Sunday I'm going to start writing my next book.
Today is Abraham Lincoln's birthday. I remember when we used to have this day off of school and government offices would close. Then they made up that President's Day thing and robbed us of a day off.
Wednesday is Valentine's Day. Hope you have someone to share it with or at least, some great memories to warm the day.
"A good heart's worth gold." William Shakespeare
Do you have a good number to share this week? Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? Have you ever used KU? Good results for selling or reading?
