As an indie author, I’ve found that there are two kinds of busy. There’s the kind that all indie authors are all the time. The kind that is not very active, but it is constant. Indie authors always have something that they can be doing. That doesn’t necessarily mean that we always do what we’re supposed to do (I personally spend way too much time on Pinterest…), but there is always something there.
Then there is the active kind of busy. That’s the knd where we actually have engagements lined up, specific things to be working on, to be honest, it’s kind of like being back in college. Those weeks are a lot of fun, but they don’t occur as often. This is going to be one of those weeks, and I am so, so, so excited about it.
Friday and Saturday, I’m participating in an event I attended last year as a fan, not as an author. It’s called IndieVengeance Day and you can read all about it here: http://indievengeanceday.com
I’m really excited about the two-day event, but before I can get to it, I still have a lot to do.
I was lucky enough to have been asked to read through my friend Jeanne Skartsiaris’ new book, Snow Globe. I’ve been going through and making notes (I’m going to write a small blurb for her! Neat!), but I really need to finish that up.
You can find Jeanne on GoodReads here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/7425985.Jeanne_Skartsiaris
I’ve also mentioned before that I was asked to give a presentation on ghost stories at the Colony Public Library on October 25. I was so honored and excited to be asked, and I’ve been putting a lot of thought and research into figuring out exactly what I want that presentation to be. Well, around 5 AM on Saturday morning, it finally came to me. I am so excited about this presentation. It’s going to be awesome. Now that I know what I want to do, it’s time to buckle down and get to work on that as well. I’ll tell you more about it after I actually give it. I want it to be a surprise!
So yeah, lots of good, fun things are happening. Cemetery Tours has been selling really well this month. I have a lot of people signing up for my GoodReads giveaway. Speaking of, don’t forget to enter! https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/109579-between-worlds
And of course, on top of all of that, I’m still hard at work on my two current WIPs. Cemetery Tours 3 is a lot of fun. It’s a little more complex and complicated than the first two, but it’s also very colorful and I think it’s going to be good. It better be good, or I’ll have to keep rewriting it until it is! My goal is to release BOTH books in 2015. That will mean a lot more hard work, but it’s so completely worth it.
I hope y’all have a splendid Monday!
