I’ve been writing books for a while, but I’ve never been writing two novels simultaneously, while also shopping out a completed manuscript (my 6th book, titled The Letters in the Books). I’ve been working all summer on these projects, and it’s taking more discipline than ever as I juggle these three stories.
I’m not complaining.
I love it.
It is so much fun to be able to get lost in storytelling—to invent characters that mirror real life people. Additionally, the two projects I’m working on take place in the past; one in particular is historical fiction.
I also just joined BookBub and am about to investigate BookFunnel. Marketing never sleeps for independent authors. We are always trying to figure things out.
This also made me realize I need a new author photo, and so I have a new one to share that I’ll use on my new books.
I’ve got a lot to accomplish—and am undergoing surgery on Monday, so I may have to hit the “pause” button for a bit. I’m looking forward to continuing to work toward finishing these stories as well as hunkering down during National Novel Writing Month…only two months from now! All this will keep me busy for a while a I heal.
Keep writing, friends! And if you have any book recommendations for me while I’m on medical leave, I would love to hear from you!
