Word Count for Kor’Thank, Barbarian Valley Girl: 10,232
Thanks to All Who Bought Echo! And BIG THANKS to Melissa, Barbara, Ian, Lorna, [anonymous], Lisa, Meg, Matt, Bobby, F.T., Alice Smith, Leslie Coop, Richard, Shauna, Sydney, Pam, Jessica, Angela, Kiesa, Ross, Keith, Alice, Daina, Daniel, Yolanda, Trace, Books4me, Vince, Laurie, DAE, Jace, Matthew, and Siobhan for posting AMAZING reviews on Amazon!!! Ashley too for the 5 star on Nook! I’d like to reiterate that leaving a positive review for any author is the equivalent of leaving $100 tip at a restaurant (I know some authors who’d actually pay that much for a good review). Although I sincerely appreciate any love you leave me on Amazon, please consider leaving a review for ANY author you know, simply as a random act of kindness…because it’ll mean the world to ’em! (A good place to start are those I’ve listed—a few of them are authors. Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with ’em and I’ll be more than happy to do so! And no, you don’t need to have purchased their book to leave a review on Amazon; you simply needed to have used Amazon at one time or another to leave what’s called an “unverified purchase” review. If you purchased their book at the store or on another eReader, you can still leave a review for them.)
News: Right now I’m wrangling with Ingram Spark, seeing what the exact cost would be if I printed Echo through them instead of Amazon, using specifications that are roughly comparable to the pulp novel you’d see in the airport. If I can’t get it down to something low, I’m going through Amazon, as I’m all about accessibility and distribution.
Kor’Thank is coming along, 250 words a day as usual.
Echo 4 is coming along; I’m still chopping 2000 words a day off it, and I’m currently at Chapter 83 (of 98). I’m hoping to get the manuscript in tip-top shape by June of next year. I’m also about to commission a cover for it come January.
As you can see, I’ve got a lotta irons in the fire! Just how I like it! 🙂 If you’re a writer, I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!!!
