Weekly writing check-in: a little light housekeeping

So, it’s November, which means many writers are doing National Novel Writing Month. As for me, I’m planning on using November to do a little light housekeeping.

This week, I finished the read-through of a novel I’d written a while back, and I’m thinking it could be something. With some work, that is. The next step is to essentially write an editorial letter … to myself. Then I’ll work on how I want to revise the story.

I need to move my books from Createspace to KDP Print. While I’m doing that, I want to upload the titles to Ingram Spark for extended distribution. I’m selling enough in print that I’m really leaving money on the table using Amazon’s version of extended distribution.

I’ll also search for some markets/reprint markets for some of my shorter fiction as well and fill up my submission tracker as well. It’s looking a little thin these days.

I’m sure I’ll think of other housekeeping chores for the month as well. I’ll let you know what I come up with.

Weekly writing check-in: graphics, ghosts, and fairy tales

shutterstock_332682269Another morning working on my graphic design class. I think I have my assignment done. We’ll see. I’ve been doing a lot of reading for the new series. We’ll see about that as well. Right now it’s sort of a big swirl of ideas and not much else.

In other news, I sold audio rights to Straying from the Path (send out your reprints–really, why aren’t you sending out your reprints?), and it’s the last few days for the 99 cent Coffee & Ghosts sale.
