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.
So, covers for my Dragon's Hoard Series! Aren't they super shiny? Click on the pics to head to my website for more info about each book. On another note, my fairytale Cinder-Elle has four chapters up in LT3's serial section and will be included in Fairytales Slashed Volume Four! I'm doing a small happy dance right now. I've got stories appearing in the Bestiary and the Kiss Me At Midnight Anthologies at LT3 too. Lots of writing and other fun things are happening over in Mell Eight world right now!
My fairy tale, Cinder-Elle, is set to run on LT3's serial page from 3/14/12 - 5/9/12. I've just sent back my return edits to the editor so this story is still on track. Here is a summary:
Blinded as a child and forced into servitude in his own home by his cold stepmother after his father's untimely death, Elle Marchcant lived for the few stolen moments he had with Theo. But when noble mothers plot to have their sons marry, Elle's lonely world is turned upside down. Balls, dresses, and intrigue surround Elle, but that elusive happily ever after may remain firmly out of reach.
My other story is the first book in a series I'm writing titled The Dragon's Hoard. Book one is titled Finding the Wolf and is awesome. I haven't gotten the first round of edits back just yet, but it should still be on track for a timely release. The release date is 6/27/12! Here is a summary:
Nyle was sent to find the missing human Prince, but he didn't expect the Prince to be so pretty! And Pretties must be carefully shined and protected- at all costs.
