Right, this will be a short post to let you know what I’m up to, and explain why there might not be as much bloggy rage from me in the next few weeks. The first thing is, out of the blue, I was invited back to the editing job for two weeks of fun news editing for great pay. And for once, that’s not sarcasm. I really do love working on this glass web site, and the news I edit is rarely boring. I think it also helps that the pay rate is awesome. Worth getting up in the morning for, really.
Around this same time, my muse came back, and we completed an episode of All Maid Up and another chapter of the Unnamed Werewolf WIP. I’d ask her for a name, but after two months of not hearing from the muse, I’ll try not to push my luck and piss her off again. If I can keep her placated, I might get at least on project completed before the end of the summer. Givewn my shitty production output this year, it’s not in my best interest to make her stomp off again right after she just got back. (>_>) But, I will say that she’s finally conceded that I was right, and the minor change I was suggesting helps to build tension in the middle of the book, where it was just about to turn way too fluffy and happy, like a gay version of “a boy and his dog.” And by gay, I mean way, WAY too happy.
So, yeah, if you notice I’m not ranting at you people for the rest of the month, it’s because I’m being distracted by people with lots of money, and by my muse, who suddenly loves me again. Oh, but there is a guest post coming up on the 25th for author Marissa Carmel for her book iFeel, so you won’t be entirely alone. And who knows? Maybe I’ll find time to come around and blame you for something else. (>_>)
Oh, right, I almost forgot. Kobo emailed me with news that their site for indie authors, Kobo Writing Life, had come out of beta, and I could now sign up for an account. So I filled out the forms and uploaded my books, and then I wondered if I could upload a book and make it free. So I emailed the support staff, and sure enough, that was allowed. So I uploaded my free books, and after I get some free time tonight, I’m going to format and upload another freebie to try and entice people to visit the new store. You can find a listing of my 34 titles with this link. I had to do a begathon on Twitter to get one book sold and see how rankings work, and for right now they’re weird. Like, I’m in the top 10 for some categories despite selling nothing. And the book I did sell didn’t change my rank one way or the other. So…yeah.
All right, that’s the news for now, so if you’ll excuse me, I have to go work on the news for someone else.
