I underestimate time, do you? I always think things are going to take a far shorter amount of it to complete than they do.
I was reminded of this this week by another underestimation. We have had our small driveway re-laid this week in ‘unbreakable’ pavers. Last week we bought in all the supplies based on our builders advice. Amongst these were 6 bags of building sand. However, there have been many trips for more building sand over the course of the week. I’ve been told I’m exaggerating when I said that at the latest count we were up to 28 but it won’t be far off that. It seems I’m not the only one who underestimates.
I thought I would spend one day this week getting my final three books loaded up to Draft2Digital but in fact it seems to have taken all week. I’m just hoping I now have all the right files loaded up with the correct links all in their proper places. I need to do a bit of checking on that but haven’t quite managed to do that bit of the process. Still here are the links for any of you who have Kobo’s, Nooks, or another sort of ereader, or who simply like to buy somewhere other than Amazon:
A Single Step
Before the Dawn
Thicker than Water
Now this is what I wanted to ask you – and if you follow me in more than one way, firstly, thank you, but secondly, you may see more than one of these requests. Sorry about that. What I am wanting to know from any of you who have read any of my work is, can you think of any really well known authors who write the same sort of stories as I do, or, whose writing style is like mine? I know it’s a big ask but I could use the information for some possible marketing I’m maybe going to attempt in the future.
If you have any ideas please leave me a comment or drop a line to me on email@example.com. Thank you.
In other news, I’ve requested an audition from a different narrator at Findaway Voices for The Joker as apparently they couldn’t get in touch with the first one I chose.
My possible narrator for all the novels is currently reading the books and trying to sort out some recording equipment so hopefully things will fall into place there in due course.
And lastly, but of course most importantly, I’ve been getting into my stride with the writing, at least towards the end of this week. Here we go…
Project B – Hill of Beans – previously 5532 words – still 5532 words.
Project C – Parallel Lies sequel – previously 15,876 words – now 17,357 words.
Have a fabulous week everyone, it’s going to be hotter than ever here xx
