I finally did it! I managed to work on two different projects at the same time!
This week, I got in 1k on my Darling New Book, or DNB. I like calling it the DNB because then it can also be the D*mn New Book, depending on how I'm feeling about it. Then I pretty much pulled an all-nighter writing on my serial, which amounted to 3k. So I'm Chapter 15 of Blood Redemption, and I'm aiming for 22-24 chapters. So I'm over halfway there. I got to write a landmark Asheroth chapter, "The Dangers of Being Rational." I love that guy. That brings me to the upper tier of my word count goal of 4k for the week. So all in all, pretty good progress.Now if I can just keep it up with the DNB.
Got together with some friends to do some Labor Day cross-promo; I used to do it a lot for the IBC, but not so much since I haven't had the time to be involved with them. Hopefully the IBC is something I'll be able to get back into since my editing calendar is less full. We exchanged Twitter handles and brief book promos, and posted for each other throughout the Labor Day weekend. Doing it once a day for other people keeps it from being spammy. Some examples:
From Jesi Lea Ryan: Do you believe in psychic powers? Neither did Arcadia...until it began happening to her. http://ow.ly/diTih. #YA #paranormal
From Charlotte Abel: Magic faces off with true love when a young witch is slapped with a chastity curse. ENCHANTMENT by @charlotte_abel amzn.to/Channie
And one from me: Angels, Demons, and everything in between. Check out Vicki Keire's GIFTS OF THE BLOOD, only 99 cents on Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/8lvylng
If you are not already harnessing the power of Twitter as a marketing tool, think about it. Plus it's just fun and a great way to keep in touch with other ROW80 folks through our hashtag, #ROW80. Hoping to spend the rest of the week with either one of my current writing projects, or hopefully both, and catch up on some much needed book reviews and features I've got planned for the blog. Hope everyone's having a great Labor Day weekend!
