Well another month has gone by as a published author. Sales wise it was a poor month for me but since I didn’t do any promoting, other than this blog and the occasional post on kindleboards, I think that’s to be expected. I sold 15 in the US and India with one borrow and I sold 3 in the UK. I did not release anything new but I was able to work on two projects. I’m about halfway through writing the first draft of book 2 in the Twin Moons of Andove series and I’ve finished 2 episodes in the Chronicles of Amelia Bennett with 1k words written on a third. I’ve also posted several blogs and on a non-writing note I went to Japan. So over all, even with the small sales, October was a pretty awesome month. Japan really gave it a boost though.
November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) the challenge is to write 50k words in the month. I’m not sure if even when I was unemployed I was able to write this many words in a month. Maybe. Anyway, I tried to complete this in August when they had a Camp NaNoWriMo and I got just over 17k words written when I got distracted. I have an idea I think I could work on this month but because I already have two projects going on plus a new job I don’t think it would be a good idea to start another. I really need to get something finished, I’m starting to wonder if Stolen Memories was just a fluke. Maybe it was the one book I will ever finish. *Wild Eyes*
Ok I’ve calmed down. I know I can do this, I’ve already done it once before. Aren’t things supposed to get easier the more times you do them?!?
Plans for November:
Send 3 episodes to be edited, hopefully get them back and published as well
Write 10k on Book 2 of the Twin Moons of Andove
