Still goofing off…I mean learning.
My Favorite Daughter finally got around to looking at what I’m doing recently. I got a ‘meh, it’s ok. I’ll show you how to fix it.”
As I’ve said many times, I’m learning how to do all this on me oddy knocky. I’ll watch a video, try something. It may or may not work and I sometimes have to drop back 10 and punt. For me, learning isn’t a linear path. It’s a journey with many side trails and rabbit holes. Today’s video I tried a number of things that didn’t work. Got frustrated. Deleted what I was working on and went with something far more simple. I learned what didn’t work, so I did learn something. Even if I didn’t get the result I was looking for. I’ll try again tomorrow.
I also got another book cover done today. Three more to go and I’ll start working on the ebook versions. After that, I’ll get the print books ready to go.
Speaking of books, I might have an interesting release schedule once I get started. Here’s what I’m looking at doing.
week 1: ebook release — week 2: short story ebook — week 3: print book release — week 4:short story ebook
I’ll be doing this for each book I have ready to go. I have 4 books ready meaning I’ll have a weekly schedule for the next four months. During that time, I should be able to finish another book meaning I’ll have five months of weekly releases. And in 5 months, I’m fairly certain I can get two books written, edited, formatted, and ready to drop. The more I think about this, I might be able to release a title a week for 6 months.
That’s the kind of momentum I’m looking at building up. Because AFTER all that…I’ll be able to assemble a collection of short stories and have a 7th month of weekly releases.
Ok, this is getting crazy and the more I think about it, the more my brain hurts. To think that over the course of seven months, I could drop 28 titles or more.
Welcome to the new world of publishing, eh?
Think we can do it? I guess we’ll find out together.
Until Next Time!
I like your attitude, Jay. I too fall off HR4. Sometime soon I’ll do the same thing you’re doing now, just stop writing for a few days to get some books out. At the moment, I have a short stack of novels (7 or 8) I need to publish and around a dozen short stories in the same boat. Meh. It’ll happen when it happens. When the words are coming so freely I hate to interrupt them.
