Trying to schedule my time
So during this time, I'm doing the following:
2. Dabbling with my Novella
3. Light editing on Impulse
4. Cover art
5. Blog tours
So, the cover are is something that I really need to just finish. I decided this weekend I'm going to FINISH IT. Or try. Don't you dare hold me to that. ;-) Reason being, the betas are due to return their comments by August 8th. At this time, I'll have one month to do my last edit before the book goes to the editor.
By then, I should have released the cover art.
While its with the editor, I'm going to work on my novella more seriously. All aspects. This includes the cover, and I've already come up with two title ideas. It will still need to get it's own edit, and I may have to try to schedule this with someone else. My goal is to try to have two book releases this year.
Once I hit that publish button on Impulse, I'm going back to reading for a little while before starting up book four. I seriously need these breaks, no matter how quickly I want to publish my own books, I'm an avid reader and I have to get in my reading time. Usually I do it at work or in the car, but I prefer to sit down for hours at a time and devour a book.
Be sure to check out the BLOG TOUR link. I'll be adding events as they are scheduled. Support those websites because they support indies. Plus, some of them have some great reviews and giveaways.
I'm really anxious to get the books out on paperback, so that is going to be something I want to tackle for next year. I'm not familiar with the ins and outs of paperback publishing, although I'm sure it will take time (which isn't something I have at the moment to carve out)
The pic above is one I designed the other night when I was thinking about how many books chop the heads off of their male cover models and slap a torso on the cover. I get irritated with that because I think there are ways you can make your male model mysterious and hidden without decapitation. I have some fun things in store when I release my other book series. I can't wait to tackle a new genre of cover art.
