Accountability Post #22 ~ To Reach that Goal ~ #amwriting #selfpublishing

I’ve realised I set myself (probably) unrealistic goals. Like the one where I wanted to hit 50K by the end of October… as you will see below I am way behind that. And as my editor pointed out recently it’s only 19 days until that other self imposed deadline of the 22nd November arrives, when I said this first draft will be finished. There’s an awful lot of writing that’s got to have happened between now and then! Hey ho!

Still, it’s coming on. I have one bit that I haven’t quite worked out how, or perhaps why, it has to happen and I’m hoping that will resolve itself as I write around it.

In other news I shall be keeping A Single Step at 99p/99c everywhere for a while as encouragement to try the series so you can get that here if you’d like to. I shall be putting the price back up on Parallel Lies in a day or so (when I have a few minutes) it’s done very well with the little promotion I done and I’ve been really heartened by how many copies have been sold at Kobo – top stuff! So if you would still like a copy at it’s reduced price of 99p/99c you can get it here.

I’ve also launched another paperback giveaway today. This time, in readiness for Christmas, it’s for the whole of the Grayson Trilogy. I’ve signed and wrapped up the series so the winner can either keep it for themselves or give it as a gift. You can click on the image below if you fancy entering.

I have asked my designer, Simon Emery, to come up with the cover already though so I’m looking forward to seeing what he puts together. And, I already have a date in mind for publication… there’s nothing like jumping the gun is there 😀

Project B – Hill of Beans – previously 5532 words – still 5532 words.

Project C – Parallel Lies sequel – previously 36,639 words – now 40,537 words.

It’s going to be a lot of bum on seat, fingers on keyboard this week… gulp!

About Georgia Rose

Georgia Rose is a writer and the author of the romantic and suspenseful Grayson Trilogy books: A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water. A short story, The Joker, based on a favourite character from the series followed and is free to download from Amazon. Her fourth novel, Parallel Lies, a standalone, encompasses crime along with Georgia’s usual blending of genre. Following a long stint working in the law Georgia set up her own business providing administration services for other companies which she does to this day managing to entwine that work along with her writing. Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her passion for people watching and her overactive imagination! Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire in the UK where she lives with her much neglected husband and dog. Their son, currently at university, comes and goes and their daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out, got married, and is discovering the joys of being all grown up and having a mortgage.

    You can only do the best you can, Georgia… but I wish you a calm heart, a quick mind, and a following wind to help you get there…
