April went by in a flash. Project 8, the 6th book in the Earth Saga series, was completed and handed over to the beta-tester, and work has started on Projects 9 and X. Project 9 is another stand-alone novel set in the Earth Saga universe, and Project X is the 7th book of 9 in …Continue reading "April 19"
March is over. We’re still in the EU, Standish has less than 100 pages to be re-edited, and ideas are starting to come together for Project 9, which I will most likely start during the second week of April. On another positive note, Book 6 of the Earth Saga is with the beta-tester, which means …Continue reading "March ’19"
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"
