What Am I Working On?

I just had an interesting conversation with my husband about what I’m working on these days.  He knows I recently signed on with GWL Publishing to work on the first book of my science fiction/fantasy series but he has trouble keeping track of what I’m doing.

So here’s the list I gave him:

ChecklistEditing the Chronicles of Xannia: Time’s Tempest

Writing the 3rd Lost Chapter to be released this summer

Writing the article: 10 Common Misconceptions New Authors Face (for Author’s Publish Magazine)

Writing the eBook: Publishing Options 101 (for Author’s Publish Magazine)

Outlining a new Urban/Supernatural/Fantasy called: The Hollow Kiss (in preparation for NaNoWriMo this November)

Writing the blurb for and helping a Contemporary Fiction author tweak her print book for self-publication

Reviewing the book: Desecrated

Finding and writing daily content for my new & emerging authors resource website Infinite Pathways

*****

I will be editing a novella for an Historical Fiction/Mystery writer next month

I will be helping publicize a Thriller writer by tweaking his fb page and website next month

I will be releasing the first Lost Chapter in June

I will be reviewing the book: Arising – Prophesy of Hope Book 1

My husband looked at me and said, “When do you find the time to tutor and look after our son?”  I had to laugh.  I often wonder the same thing.  Between multitasking and keeping a strict daily planer I haven’t missed a deadline yet.  Oh, and did I mention that I just held the 2nd Annual JUZDIZRTS Author Event (the non-profit division of my website) yesterday afternoon for 8 local indie authors?  Needless to say, I’m glad that’s over so I can free up time for everything else on my list!

For those of you who have or are trying to start your own business, this will resonate as the norm.  Until you start to turn a profit, you’re stretched to your limit and beyond just trying to scrape by.

But I’m doing it.  And nobody ever said that following your dream was easy 😉

I am a writer of adventure stories (although this is not an official category my writing spans YA, NA, Speculative Fiction, and Romance) who taught high school English in a past life. I am a freelance writers and editor who loves giving creative writing workshops and advising about the self-publishing landscape. I'll have 3 books published in my Chronicles of Xannia series as of April 2017, 3 non-fic industry publications, three short stories in two anthologies, and one essay on the believability factor in fiction writing in a guide to writing. I am a mother and a wife with an OCD bent toward organization - but I hate cleaning and anything related to it, so I'm definitely not a housekeeper! ;) I learned how to shoot an olympic bow when I was in high school and I look forward to taking it up again in the future. I enjoy playing adventure games on my PSIII, X-Box 360, and Wii. I have a quick mind and a good sense of humour but I am not a humourous person, though I try.
