Happy to Report: She Writes Things - Anthology Update

 


I tell you what.... time sure has flown by since my last post. I don't even know how that happened. But I do know the anthology isn't ready yet. 

I have removed all of the separate works (books) from the retailer's sites. I had to wait a period for all of those to be removed and am happy to report that they are all gone. 


That was important because if I were to have those lingering and tried to upload the anthology, the retailers, Amazon especially, would ping me for duplicate and/or plagiarized content, and it would turn into this giant headache.


While I have all of my documents in Word and saved to an external hard drive and on the cloud, I put them all into one large Google Doc. Easy for me to edit and work on using whatever device I wanted. 


Well, with a document that long, my spell checker and Grammarly were playing very ugly with each other, and it was slowing down the typing and editing process, causing a large amount of frustration. 


I then decided to go back to using Seequill, only to have them send out a memo that they were permanently closing. 


Awesome. 


I finally upgraded my Scrivener, but I only have it on the desktop. Once I am done with my day job, I don't want to sit here in the office any longer. So, my next step, I guess, is to get it on the laptop too. 


It's been really frustrating trying to clean up all of these documents and get them together into one cohesive unit to put back up for sale. I cannot move forward with writing until this project is off my desk. 


It is coming. Eventually. The anthology. New books. New reads.

 New stuff. It. Is. Coming. 

Changes Are Coming

Never, ever be afraid of change. 

I sit here writing this post well into New Year Eve, knowing tomorrow brings a whole new year with so many opportunities to share some more words. 

I have been writing little bits here and there, but not the way I used to over the years. For the longest time I thought it was writer's block but when I published the latest story this year, I realized, it's not just writer's block. It's that I don't want to write what I used to write. I am not that writer anymore. 

I don't want to use another pen name like so many others do. I don't want to start over as someone else. 

So, I have decided it's time to take those old stories out of the catalog. Put them in an anthology. Tell the stories behind the stories. Leave the newer ones published and continue forward fresh and new. Writing the things you want to write - longer stories. Poems. Prose. 

And that is exactly what I am going to do. 

I have this amazing story that I have been working on for the last year and I feel like this is what is holding me back. It's time. 

See you in 2022!

Happy to Report | "Just Stay" is Now Live

 




Writing Status Update: So, after stressing over typos... I *think* we are good to go. If not, oh well, here we are anyway. "Just Stay" is now live. So, here we go : https://amzn.to/35jeumF

Happy to Report | The Chosen Cover





Writing Status Update: And, that is a wrap from me for tonight. After fighting with my brain over an $29 image, I scrapped the other cover and found one that actually was a scene from the story. So, here we are. Just a few tweaks and it will be ready. Now, I just need to format the document and upload everything to the publishing sites. But that, well that is going to have to wait for another night. I am tapping out.  

Happy to Report | We're Almost There!

Writing Status Update: #34243243243242343243t4354253 ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Whatever. After working my day job all week, then spending most of the weekend working on my side business, cleaning, sorting, running errands, my brain farted and there was no more. 

I could not sit down at the desk any more to focus on cover creation and book formatting. BUT, at least the story, writing, edits, cover pick, and title pick are DONE. Now, it's just a matter of wrapping up the pretty package and releasing it into the wild. It's pretty crazy to think about, that after 5 years I'll be published again. It almost doesn't seem real. && then to focus on the Hunter and Scarlett tale...because..yeah, that one.

Happy to Report | Stuck on Titles



I am STILL sitting on these f.cking titles and it's driving me insane. Dylan and Cambrie desperately need a title so I can get this book off my desk and published. Wanna help? Cool... so here are the ones we are sitting with right now. Got any ideas? I am sending out an SOS.
 
Stay
I See You
Passport
Abroad
Awaken
Awakening
Hunted

one suggested Destination Unknown, which I love, but it is also the name of an Agatha Christie novel and while majority of book titles are not copyrighted like that, I'm not really interested in using a title of hers. 

If I can work around it somehow, like use the words mixed with some others, I am open to that idea.

Seriously, NEVER had this much trouble with a book title.

Happy to Report | It's Coming

 Worked my way through all of the current beta readers' suggestions and edits yesterday. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Still, a few minor details to wrap up and settle on a cover. I'm not sold on the title so I will have to brainstorm there. It's coming you guys, it's coming.

Prose | For Every










For every beast,
there is beauty.
For every wolf,
there is red.
For every light,
there is dark.
The wolf howls, the beast roars,
the petals fall to the floor.
One by one
until they're no longer, forevermore. ~ Erin Rose She Writes Things
