Well, I'm pretty sure I'm the worst blogger on earth. Did I forget last week? I'm pretty positive I did.
I'm in the middle of writing book two in the Love in Corsaw series, and it's going.... okay. I think I'm in a little bit of a depression right now, and I know for sure that my anxiety is super heavy and has been for the last couple of weeks. All of that is making writing more difficult, but I'm trudging along. If I manage to stay on schedule - or something close to it - I should be done with the first draft in a few weeks.
I'm excited to go back and revise book one. I like the bones of what I have done, and I've had some ideas since I finished it that I think will take it to the next level.
Some of you may know, my husband is deployed right now. Because of that, we decided it was the perfect time to hunker down on our savings so I can get all the edits and covers and other costly tasks done when the time comes to publish. It's exciting and stressful all at once to be saving for publication. There's no guarantee that I'll ever get that money back. In fact, there's more of a guarantee that I won't. But whatever. I'm going for this, and we'll just see where the road takes me.
I'm toying with different release style strategies. Right now, I'm working on the Love in Corsaw series. Next, I know I'm going to work on a single title book that I call Avalanche for now (because there's an avalanche in it...). After that, the sky is the limit. Under the Books tab on my page you can see that there are several genres I plan on publishing in. The order and frequency of those is what is up in the air. They say you should stick to one genre and establish an audience, and I hear them. However, I'm also making it known from the very start that I will branch out. That I will not be stuck in one genre. The question I'm dealing with is the how. It's all up in the air right now, and I have a lot of time to decide, but I want it out there that after Avalanche, it could be anything.
That's really all I have to say this week. I feel like I said a lot of nothing. Worst. Blogger. Ever. That's okay.
