Soul’s Little Lie: The Complete Series (book 1 actually) is now put together into on eBook file. All 26 chapters for easy reading.
Paperback re-release coming Feb 10th.
Don’t have much else to say. I’ll be working on the current chapter for book 2. Much more to come in the 2nd novel. I actually can’t wait for this piece to be finished. 😀
I set up a newsletter for my readers. I call my readers my Soul Team. If you would like to join to keep up-to-date with everything about my current and upcoming novels of the Soul’s Little Lie saga, please sign up here on my Facebook page.
Here’s what the first newsletter says:
Now for the Thunderclap announcement. I know it’s a tiny bit late, but I’ve been busy working on the books.
Thunderclap is a service to let everyone who supports the campaign to know like a cascade event when said special event, product, book, movie, etc comes out. It lets all your Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr friends and their friends of friends find out. Here’s the link to my Thunderclap Campaign.
Currently in this Thunderclap Campaign, which is my first, I need 100 supporters to get the word out. Think of it as a Presidential Campaign, but with out the political bs attached to it. I need all the help I can get from my Soul Team. So, come join the my team today.
Set schedule for my writing and much more fantastic news and behind the scenes.
As you can see from this photo, I’ve created a schedule for myself starting tomorrow.
It is time for me to get back into the swing of my writing. After a hard 2 years living with my parents after my divorce, it was hard for me to fix up a set schedule for myself. Everything was hectic in my family’s house were I could not concentrate at all.
When I started writing the first draft to my first novel, Mythia back in high school from Sept 1, 1995 to May 9, 1996, I did a schedule for myself in my head. I pumped out nearly 200 pages in 9 months. During my marriage I went back into finishing up the first draft adding more to the piece which came to a total of 197,000 words, 23 chapters, 4 parts. From chapter 18-23 I think I wrote it in six months. It’s been so long.
Now, with Soul’s Little Lie book one done, that piece taking 9 months, taking weekends off and 2 to 4 weeks off (not all at once), I found myself doing a set schedule in my head. I had quite working at Michaels Crafts Store in Everett, WA from August 10, 2010 and found myself with plenty of quiet time to get the main draft done. I started in June 2010 and finished in February. Another 9 full months to finish a draft.
As for Soul’s Little Lie book 2 – this one has been a pain. I have all the chapters outlined and in order, but it has been hard for me to get back into the swing with the disruptive household back in TN and then the move back to Washington state. It was quite hectic for me.
What was also lagging me was I actually enjoyed having a set schedule. Keeping up on it, not missing a day at all from when I worked in retail. I can still have that type of discipline here at home with no worries.
Now, no excuses.
No, bull shit!
Time is NOW! Treat this book, with what is left, as a real work schedule as though I’m back in retail. Book 2 is almost done, say, 5 more chapters to go and book 3 is demanding to be born. Book 3 can’t happen if I don’t finish book 2.
Also, join me on Facebook at 3:45pm PST (5:45pmCST) A Platinum Event! Provocative Paranormal Online Multi Author Event! with other fellow authors of paranormal romance fantasy adventure writings. Giveaways, Q/A and more.
I’ll be giving away a signed copy of my first book along with a free eBook copy.
Hope to see you there!
