Tired, but not giving up on those GRAND plans!

Pardon my absence, but I’ve been busy catching my breath. Every year is different. Each year since I published my first book, it has been getting more and more hectic though. 2017 has been outright crazy. I’ve launched three books (that’s including the Kindle Press one) and it’s not even the end of the first quarter yet.

Yeah, no wonder I’m all tuckered out.

Ya know, people often don’t realize what they’re getting into until they are smack dab in the middle of it. That’s true for me to a certain extent. My infinite wisdom notwithstanding, I didn’t quite realize how much it would take to get this writing venture going. It hit me last year, when even with 18-hour days I still wanted to do more.


Don’t get me wrong. 18-hour days or not, I’m not giving up on anything. I’m only going at it at fuller-force, if that’s possible. I’ll be launching a pen name or two this year, as well as continue to write using my own name. Doesn’t that give you the chills already?

So what’s coming this year? A couple of pen-name books (each 60K+ words), and one in my own name (100K+ words). Hopefully I can sneak in a short novel (50K+ words) that I can get into Kindle Scout next year. Oh, I also have another short story commitment for an anthology.

If it sounds bat-shit crazy to you, you won’t be far from the truth. Heck, I feel positively batty nowadays. But this is also a bat who’s ready to give it a 1000%. All I need is my coffee.

So, here’s to three more quarters of non-stop craziness.

And oh, by the way, this is the final week of the Kindle Scout Anniversary Sale, and The Eternity Prophecy is still on a promotional price of $0.99 at Amazon.com. Grab it at the discounted price while you can.
