- I got the edits for Dragon Home back to LT3. I asked for them to go for a second round since I needed some things clarified by the editor. There hasn't yet been any word on the rest of the books I'm expecting edits for, but they could arrive any day now.
- After the long week of Passover, running around nonstop the entire time, the long drive back to my apartment, and then having to wake up early again for work, I'm exhausted. I've been going to bed early every night this week and I haven't had the energy to work on any of my stories. I did figure out where I was stuck on a story not on this month's goals list, so I have to decide if it can wait to get written down or not, but aside from that everything is currently sitting stagnant on my computer. I'm really hoping that next week the writing bug will bite me, but I have to take the long drive back home to pick up my new glasses at the end of next week, so who knows.
It's been about a year now since I put together a proper goals list that I knew I could keep to. My life has started to gain stability and my writing time has settled down to a proper schedule, so I would like to try setting these goals again.
Some considerations for April that I will have to keep in mind are 1) Passover, which will take away a few days from my writing time, and 2) Editing, since I'm expecting the copy edits for Dragon Adventure, the second round of edits for Justified, the first round of edits for Dragon Home, and all the edits for The Dragon's Hoard series and Short Stories.
With all that in mind, here are my goals for April:
If I can confine my writing to just those stories, I could very well be able to complete one of them and make a lot of progress on the rest.
There are many reasons why I shouldn't guess potential release dates for my upcoming books, the main reason of which is that I'm usually wrong. In this most recent case, I was very wrong. LT3 has provided me with all the upcoming dates they were able to schedule this far ahead of time and pretty much all of my guesses proved to be way off. Here's the official dates (which are subject to change, but should be mostly accurate at this point), so mark your calendars:
The only book that LT3 has accepted for publishing that is not on that list is Kelpie Blue. If I might guess (and at this point you've hopefully realized that my guesses aren't worth much), I would say December 2017 or January/February 2018.
In other news, Dragon Soldier, Dragon Detective, Dragon Adventure, and Dragon Home will be released in print in Supernatural Consultant Volume 2. This print compilation continues from where Volume 1 left off and should be released around the same time as Dragon Home in August.
Supernatural Consultant Volume 2 is also being considered for release in audio. The decision hasn't been made just yet, but I have been told it is on the list of potentials.
And the last bit of release news is that once the edits for the reprint of The Dragon's Hoard series are complete, the series will be submitted for translation into Spanish.
If you follow me on Facebook, you've probably noticed the three new covers I got this week. For those of you who don't check Facebook, here they are!
