Day 33: It’s Just Around the River Bend

And, now you’re going to be singing that all day. You’re welcome.

Today’s blog challenge asks, “What’s next?”

R-100_TooManyIdeas_grandeThat is a fantastic question. I get ideas constantly, and I want to write ALL THE THINGS. But, given my schedule and my day job, prioritizing is a must.

My writing priorities are (and in very specific order, mind you):

  1. Finish editing Rising, and get it out the door. Targeted for soft release mid-November with a debut signing event on December 11th.
  2. Work through edits on a couple horror stories I have going into an upcoming anthology. More on that project very soon!
  3. Work on the first installment of another new project – Coven Thirteen Ops – a middle-grade urban fantasy based on a flash piece I wrote earlier this year. That one will be a serialized publication.
  4. Another project – in the works – to be divulged soon! Very hush-hush 😉
  5. Work on the sequel to Rising, titled Release, targeted for publication in May.

Then there’s my editing gigs.

Oh, and my day job.

And parenting… which really goes at the top of this list because: Parenting.


Looking at that list, it feels a bit daunting. I’m thankful that my typical writing day produces roughly 3000 words. I just need more of them!

On the heels of feeling daunted, this list is exciting! After yesterday’s post, I got a lot of kudos, congratulations and expressions of joy from all of those awesome people who’ve helped me along my path. Yesterday, I walked on a cloud of praise and it made me feel awesome. The gratitude I feel is beyond measure.

However, as happy as I am that Rising is about to ship, if I’ve learned anything about business during my life, it’s the knowledge that there is no such thing as down-time between projects. I have a lot of work to do in order to continue calling myself “author.” Resting on my laurels is just not going to work.

  1. I’m really excited to read your book! But I’m equally excited about reading how you continue with Spartacus and all of your other projects! I’d love to know how you juggle all of those around, as I struggle with having too many ideas and not enough time! Still. You’re an inspiration! I wish I could get done half the stuff you do!

    1. Sleep is for the weak. LMAO! Honestly, I have no idea… I’m the energizer bunny… until I drop. Then I sit in front of my computer and play World of Warcraft for three solid days…

      And thanks for the encouragement and kind words! I’m excited to get Rising out there. And Spart is going to get some love this weekend, too. I want to get the first draft of the first episode done in the next couple weeks 🙂
