Weekly News, Goals & Archive 8/1/11

It’s August. *August!* Crazy how time flies, isn’t it?

The Biker’s Wench is available in print and ebook, and I’m happy it’s done and out. I’ve signed up at Kindlegraph, so if you have a Kindle account of some sort, a twitter account, and want a personalized autograph of one of my books, it’s a pretty nifty little program.

Next up on the publishing schedule is the erotic short I still need to edit, followed by The Wise Critique (romantic suspense) – renamed from Her Private Chef. I hope to have that out sometime in late September, and I’ll post some excerpts as I’m editing so you can get a little taste.  I should have cover art for that very soon as well – I’ve seen the first drafts, and it’s going to be really fun and quirky.  

And I’ll be guest blogging at the #Amwriting.org blog on Thursday about juggling genres, so I hope you’ll stop in there too…

Other than that, business as usual around here – so here’s this week’s schedule & archive:

Goal Reports

I’m pretty happy with the fact that I actually got all of my serial chapters written last week – especially since I got behind with releasing TBW and all. So that was a serious win. I also got all of my web sites updated, which was a pretty decent sized job as well. Other than that, I slacked off in a pretty major way, so this week I’ve got to get my butt in gear, regardless of what else is going on. Luckily, things are starting to level out at the day job, so I should be able to step up the goals a bit.

Goals for the Week


– 5 serial chapters

– Beta read done and sent back

– Short story edited & ready to format


– Catch up bookkeeping

– Send TBW out for reviews

– Launch new flash fiction prompt & imprint for BSB


– Workout three nights

– Less time spent on games

– Make time to read at least a little every night.

– Catch up on emails (I have a stack to return/continue – if I owe you, I promise I’ll be in touch soon!)

That’s my  week – how’s yours shaping up?
