Revitalization IWSG

Another round of Insecure Writer’s Support Group. This time I’ve been thinking about revitalization. The Official March Question Have you ever pulled out a really old story and reworked it? Did it work out? Um…yes and no? “Really old” is pretty subjective. I feel like it’s hard to say yes because I’ve not pulled out anything that existed only on paper. (Though my mom did find a story I wrote when I was 5. It was adorable. But I didn’t…

2016 by the Numbers

Every year at my day job I have to pull together information for everything I’ve done for the year. Usually, this comes this week, someone several levels above me running through and saying they need it. I try to be prepared. So this is my 2016 Roundup of all the shit I’ve done. Quick review of my goals? Back at the start of 2016 I made a post about my goals. Narrating I really dove into narration this year. While…

Formatting

I promised to talk about formatting for Dangerous Metal so here it is. (For a straight up roundup of formatting links I’ve already made that post.) If you have questions about it please let me know! For me there were really two elements to formatting. One technical. (Not entirely difficult, I used Scrivener, which made it much easier.) The other just…what should a book look like. This post got long so this is mostly just the techincal piece. Why I…

Distribution

For Dangerous Metal I went the self-publishing route, and some of my reasons for that were in last week’s post. Today I’m going to talk about distribution, why I am distributing the way I am. First a failure! Personally, I read on iBooks most of the time. If I have the option to read in iBooks or Kindle I pick iBooks every time. (I read enough on iBooks that I got enough money back to buy a couple of new…

Dangerous Metal trailer

I have a pretty thing to share! A Dangerous Metal trailer. A huge thank you to Stefan Budansew for the work on this trailer. The audiobook is currently going through final checks so it should be out soon. I’m very excited about having it live. The July 29th episode of the podcast will also be Dangerous Metal related. I will have some more updates later this week, and a roundup post of some kind.

Dangerous Metal

I’ve been a bit busy and haven’t been posting as much last week and this. But it is all for a good reason. I’m putting the finishing touches on my novel and getting it ready for launch. Dangerous Metal is a cyberpunk thriller and I’ve got some brand new things to share. Covers I will, of course, be doing an audiobook version as well. (Recording is what has been devouring my time.) Description Eva is happy to get her life…

Is it ok to like your own work?

I’m currently recording Dangerous Metal (which I hope to have out by the end of August!) and I’ve a few times run across lines that have genuinely made me smile and go, oh I really like this. Today’s: “You watch too many movies. I do more than drive recklessly and shoot blindly.” He was smiling, the tension easing. “I also do paperwork.” It isn’t entirely a light-hearted romp about paperwork. (Read not at all light-hearted.) I was going to write…

Motivation

I’ve been feeling a lack of motivation lately. I think I have hopefully sorted out what was happenings. I had created a gantt chart for all the work I need to be doing, what I need to get done to get the things I’m working on published. This laid things out through 2020 with a novel, two novellas, and an anthology every year, plus record and produce audiobook versions of all of them. Plus the podcast every week. This might…
