Sunday Report Card & Open Contests
Sunday, January 21st, 2024

With our cold snap, which kept the kids out of school for the ENTIRE week, I didn’t accomplish even half of what was on my list this past week.

  • I continued revising Warrior’s Touch—which is now Unbound by the Amazon (thanks, everyone on my Street Team for helping me retitle the book!)
  • I searched for and found cover art for Unbound and a new Brotherhood Protectors story, Tyson’s Mission. After sending the art off, I now have two gorgeous covers!
  • I worked on editing stories for two authors.
  • I wrote one lousy chapter of Malcolm. It took so long because I had to figure out how my heroine wouldn’t look TSTL (too stupid to live), like a damsel in distress, when things went wrong with her takedown of a skip. It’s the meet-cute scene where my two bounty hunters first come together.
  • I began reading the stories for my next anthology, Secret Identities. I have three read so far.

This next week, I have to do better, or stop reporting about how bad I am at this writer-editor gig because you’re probably wondering how I ever get anything done!

What does this next week look like? I intend to accomplish the following:

  • 4 chapters of Malcolm
  • Complete two editing jobs
  • Complete revising Warrior’s Touch and get it ready for publication.
  • Read another five to ten stories for my next anthology, Secret Identities.

Here’s hoping tomorrow’s forecast for more snow is WRONG.
