Weekly writing check-in: sugar maple show-off

I missed checking in last week due to a big event my Girl Scout troop hosted. This week, I’ve been down with a virus (fortunately just that) so I’m not quite done with the novella. Almost. I can see the end from here, and I’m excited to get back to it.

So this week, this week, I’m hoping to finish up the novella. Then, it’s thinking time. I’m not sure what I’ll tackle next. The third draft of the series starter? Maybe. Or maybe I’ll let that rest for a little while longer and revise another novel that’s been on the back burner.

We’ll see.

That’s it for this week. Until next time, I’ll leave you with all those gorgeous leaves.

Weekly writing check-in: painting and progress

I missed last week, but I have a good excuse. To the left. That. That’s my desk at the moment.

And last weekend, I was all: I can’t even.

But there’s light at the end of the tunnel, and I’m pretty sure it’s not an oncoming train.

I have been getting some writing in (thank you, Starbucks). I have about 15,000 in the novella so far, and I really hope I can finish it up this coming week.

In other news, I’m doing a short-term promotion for Straying from the Path.

If you like fairy tale retellings and haven’t grabbed a copy yet, here’s your chance. Just 99 cents, just about everywhere e-books are sold.

Weekly writing check-in: renovation (whew)

A quick check-in this week, because we’re doing a little renovation around here (painting and floors and such–nothing structural, thankfully), and I’m tired.

Make that very tired.

But I did pass the 10,000-word mark in The Trouble with Doppelgangers. I’m pretty sure it won’t turn into an actual novel (although, if it does, I can always make it the second book in the series).

I also set up a few promotions, and I’m certain I did some other things as well. At the moment?

Whew.

I’m tired.

Weekly writing check-in: In which I have a series name!

I’m so excited. At long last, I have a name for the series I’m writing and titles for the books in said series.

My cup runneth over this week.

Without further ado, I give you:

Tea & Sorcery

A while back I joked that calling this series Tea & Witches would be very, very on brand (considering Coffee & Ghosts and all that). So, yes, this is close. But this series name is actually more expansive than simply witches (although there will be witches in this series, but also a great many other magical beings).

Not only that, but I have a naming convention for the books (number to be determined) in the series. So far, I have:

Book 1: The Trouble with Necromancers

Book 1.5: The Trouble with Doppelgangers (this will be the bonus novella for newsletter subscribers)

Book 1 is done (well, the second draft–I have some more work to do on it), and as of today, the novella has 6,100 words. And seriously, I could spend years filling in the blank after The Trouble with.

In other news, I’m working to get all my print titles into IngramSpark for expanded distribution. Once that’s done, I’ll move my titles off of CreateSpace (which is closing) and into KDP Print.
