This, I feel, will be short, but hopefully sweet. I have added a few words to The Sequel this week but I have spent most of my ‘writing’ time re-reading Parallel Lies. I felt I needed to because a) I had to tell someone the plot the other day, and made a right hash of it, and b) I needed to catch up with the characters, and the feel of the whole thing, to be able to carry on where I left off. If that is indeed what I end up doing…
It’s strange reading your own book but on the whole I was still happy with it – obviously there are things I would now change but creative works are never finished are they, only abandoned. I’m not sure who said that but they are quite right.
In other news:
All my books are now available to read for free from the Cambridgeshire libraries so if you borrow from libraries in that county you can request them if they are not actually in your branch. Imagine how thrilled I was to find them on the shelves of our mobile library. 😀
Parallel Lies is also available, I’ve only just realised it wasn’t in the photo I took. Duh!
Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water have been on their final Kindle Countdown this week and, along with A Single Step, will be out of KDP Select in the next few days. I will be making them available on every platform I can, via Draft2Digital, during the latter part of next week. So if you read on a Nook or Kobo (or any other sort of ereader) or prefer not to buy via Amazon they will now be available to you.
Lastly, I’ve done my accounts this week. A tedious task (when it’s your day job as well!) but it’s useful to look at the figures and see what has or hasn’t worked over the year. My accountant will be delighted too, I’m usually the one he has to chase right up to the tax return deadline because I’m so preoccupied on my client work.
The word count is below, not anything exciting I’m afraid but now the re-read is out of the way I’m hoping I shall be able to do better next week.
Project B – Hill of Beans – previously 5532 words – still 5532 words.
Project C – Parallel Lies sequel – previously 14,536 words – now 15,876 words.
Have a wonderful week everyone xx
