Only the Good Friday: Book stuff


I didn’t think I had much for Only the Good Friday this week. I haven’t read anything worth raving about, we just got back from vacation…

Sometimes, you’ve got to look beyond the obvious. Or look into the corners of your life, into the things we take for granted.

Like the fact that I had a fantastic writing day yesterday, and a great editing session. That’s writing one book and editing another, for those of you keeping track at home. And nope, the one being edited was NOT the Demo Tapes: Year 2. That means I’m working on more than I’m talking about.

If you’re my Facebook friend, you probably saw my status today: royalties came in on Demo Tapes: Year 1. That’s good. That’s very good. Recent stats claim that most self-published books sell under 200 copies. I haven’t hit that benchmark yet (YET), but I’m determined to blow the roof off it. Remember, the more copies of The Demo Tapes that I sell, the sooner you guys will see Trevor’s Song. How’s THAT for incentive?

Yep, it’s a good Friday over here. I’m feeling very strong and optimistic.

And now, if you’ll excuse me, Mitchell’s up to no good in the book I’m writing, and I’ve got an outtake in progress in which Trevor’s in fine form. Not to mention what I’m cooking up for next week’s Thursday Thirteen

    Productivity is always good! Optimism is good, too! And, I hope you blow the roof off of those sales, as well. Have fun writing. It’s scooping cat poop again at my house lol!

    Yay for productivity! Your multi-tasking skillz are much envied by moi. After a move and various clusterfarkery, I’m hoping to get back on the horse and ride.

    Hope you had a great vacation. 🙂

    I’ll bet you blow that 200 bench mark in a matter of months.

    Yippee! I’m glad you’re feeling strong and optimistic. And congrats on the royalties, and you’ll be blowing past that benchmark in no time. 🙂

    Working on two projects — great multi-tasking, my friend! Good luck with both of ’em, and rock on!
