Episode 9 Now Available

The Italian Connection

This actually went live on Kindle last week, but I took a break from posting this past weekend.

I plan to edit episode 10 starting sometime this week.

I’ve finished chapter 6 of Hunting the Dragon and will start on chapter 7 today.

Revisioning

I’m sure that’s a real word. If it’s not, it ought to be.

I had not so much a brain storm as a brain cloud burst in regards to an in-product marketing ploy regarding the The Adventures of Pigg & Woolfe serial. It will involve pulling the currently published episodes and releasing revised versions. It does not involve changes to the story, just addendums. I want to plug introductions on the front of each episode which invites new readers to get any previous episodes and gives them the correct reading order of the titles.

On the end, I plan to add teaser questions to entice readers to get the next episode. I also plan to invite them to check out this website if they are interested in learning about my other stories.

Finally, I plan to overhaul the blurbs I just dashed out with more enticing ones on the individual Amazon pages for the episodes.

Werk werk werk.

I will upload episode 9, The Italian Connection, later this evening.

Moar Progress

For the fans of my Steampunk serial, The Adventures of Pigg & Woolfe: episode 9 is edited, and the cover art is in process. Look for it on Kindle sometime this weekend or early next week.

One of my goals is to have the first 12 episodes out and a hard copy full season omnibus available by the time LibertyCon rolls around.

For those of you eagerly awaiting the next Waves of Darkness title, Hunting the Dragon: I typed up chapters 3, 4, and 5 on my phone and have uploaded them to my desktop. Going to start chapter 6 today.

I am considering starting a Patreon page. I need to talk to others I know who’ve had them for a few years to find out what effect it could have on my taxes first. I was one of the ones who still managed to get one this year. I’d like to keep it that way.

I saw Lydia Sherrer is still on the list of attending authors for LibertyCon. A few, including the original Literary GoH for this year, Patricia Briggs, have had to cancel since the convention was forced to change dates and venues. I hope Lydia is still able to attend. I have book shopping to do and also look forward to visiting with her. Perhaps she’ll even bring her little Dread Pirate in Training along.

Hmm, since Liberty doesn’t have a replacement for Ms. Briggs yet, maybe I’ll hint to Brandy and Rich to see if Sherrilyn Kenyon is available. Haven’t had a chance to see her in person since a book signing she did in Orlando back in 2005 or 2006. I wasn’t able to attend the last Chattacon she was a guest at back in 2010.

Productivity

So, working a split shift has been beneficial for me, if not the greatest financially speaking. (It has seriously curtailed my overtime.) The longer home time in the mornings allowed me to finally finish taking the tree apart and putting it away until Fall.

On the writing/publishing front, I’ve transcribed the early draft of Ghost of Honor and transferred it to my desktop for further editing before I submit it.

For my Waves of Darkness fans, I’ve also made good headway on chapter 2 of Hunting the Dragon.

AND … I finally did the line art for the cover of The Adventures of Pigg & Woolfe: 8 Chance and Fortune. It is scanned, cleaned up, and transferred to the tablet for coloring.

Now I need to get the gumption to redo the flooring in the cats’ room. Uh-huh.

Oh, before I forget: I will be pushing books at ConNooga this weekend in the Chattanooga Convention Center. I do NOT have a table. Just look for the old pirate wench with a roller bag full of books. I have copies of Demon Bayou, Silent Fathoms, Black Venom, Hell’s Dodo, The Daedalus Enigma, and Maelstrom of Fate.

While I’m sold out of book 1, Blood Curse, I’d be more than happy to email a free .doc copy to anyone who buys one of the other books.

I currently don’t have a newsletter service and will NEVER abuse or sell anyone’s information.

Update!

I’ve finished chapter 2.

Being Sick Sucks

Apparently it was my turn to get the 24 hour stomach bug that’s been making the rounds at work; this on top of a sinus infection. Woke up barfing about 4 this morning. At least that was the only time. I also have had an on-again off-again fever that has peaked at 100.9 degrees twice today. Fever has broken, and I’m feeling better, which means I should be okay to return to work tomorrow.

I’d planned to start on the cover art for episode 8 of The Adventures of Pigg & Woolfe today, but I’ve spent most of the day in bed.

On another note, I’m almost through with the first draft of a comic/horror short story I plan to submit to Voodoo Rumors for hopeful inclusion in an anthology to help raise funds for HallowCon. I’ve titled the story Ghost of Honor. I’ve been writing on it for just a little over a week, which is probably the fastest I’ve ever written a story. If it isn’t one of the stories selected for the anthology, I may look into self-pubbing it, with HallowCon’s permission (since it mentions the convention and its owner as part of the theme).

Right now, I think I’m gonna take some cough syrup and go to bed.
