I haven't done an update for some time, so here I go.
My first novel is now available in paperback on Amazon (see advert on the left), after the ebook was available for a free download last month. It was downloaded 525 times and then bought 15 times. I now have a total of £5.25 in royalties. Woohoo. Once I get organised, after the school holidays have finished, I'll run a competition for a paperback giveaway.
The short story collection didn't do quite so well, being downloaded only 85 times with no follow up sales. This may be due to it being a short story collection or its relatively small size.
The current WIP (Apollo the 13th) is nearly done in first draft form. It's just short of 30K words and will hit about 40K when I'm done with the draft. After its first rewrite, it'll probably double in size, though I've already rewritten the first chapter after some feedback.
As for W1S1, I had a terrible June, but in July I not only wrote two new stories, but resubbed one old story. I was about to resub another story when I checked my spreadsheet and saw it was still out on review for Gold Dust.
Other than that, I've scribbled an idea for the follow up to my current WIP, outlined a book on how to form a writer's group and am debating whether or not to include a section on electronic publishing as a group in it. Should I?
I've also started to explore the idea of article writing to earn money, using this blog for inspiration and the columns I have on electronic publishing.
Lastly, I'm still getting used to this new keyboard and its odd shape.
What have you been up to?
