February is over and Brexit is looming. What could possibly go wrong? February was a rather slow month. Project 8 has been edited to the point where it can be handed to the beta-tester, but I’m waiting until April to do that. Gotta give my man a break. Standish is still going through a line-by-line …Continue reading "Feb ’19"
Another month in the books. January didn’t involve much new activity. At the moment there are 2 novels being edited: Standish (Project 6) and Condition Zero: The Earth Saga VI (Project VIII). These are both at a different phase of the editing process but are ticking along. Having some a bit of research recently, I …Continue reading "January ’19"
Another year in the bag. Sold 185 books. (I need to sell roughly 68 per day to live) Got ‘Love in a Time of War’ out to the people. Finished Project VI and VIII. Both of those are currently being edited. A lifelong friend read Project VI, a standalone work titled ‘Standish’. He thinks it’s …Continue reading "2018 in Review"
Another month has wrapped, bringing with it the end of the year. Work wise, I finished, and completed 2 rounds of editing on Project VIII, which is the 6th Earth Saga book. This project is now on the back-burner while I work on ‘Standish’. Sales wise, the month was a disaster. 1 book sold I …Continue reading "December ’18"
November has come to an end and there is one word to sum it up: ZERO. That is the total number of books sold this month. I thought my books sales were normally low, but from what I understand, I can’t do much worse than ZERO! I suppose I need to hold out hope …Continue reading "November ’18"
October was a brutal month for sales. Disastrous. But I suppose that is following a general trend from the past five years. I seem to be unable to A: sell books and B: get the limited people who read them to review them. It’s a shocking mess. I’m currently punching the keys on Book …Continue reading "October ’18"
September has come to an end, and with it the heat. London is cooling off, and autumn has arrived. September was a fairly productive month. I got Standish into the hands of another beta-tester, and work on Project 8 (Book VI) has continued. I’ve also gotten a better picture of where the Earth Saga series …Continue reading "Month in Review: September ’18"
August is over, and I would have to say it was a fairly positive month. Taking stock of open projects, Project 6 is with testers/editors, and we’re going to be giving out another copy to Nick C for reading during the first week of September. Project 8 is approaching 40,000 words and should be …Continue reading "Month in Review: August ’18"
The first of August has arrived, which means it’s time for a month in review. I was going this weekly, but until I feel that that is necessary, we’re scaling back to once a month. July went fairly well. Both Standish and Love in a time of War were either both handed off to beta-testers, …Continue reading "July ’18"
It was a good week for writing, and a great week for English football. Football is one of those sports that I follow like an addict every so often. Tennis, golf, the Olympics, rugby. A big tournament or competition comes on, and I’m hooked. It’s nice to get some variety in what sports I …Continue reading "Week in Review: 24/06/18"
