STATUS REPORT # 103

The last two weeks has been one heck of a time.

The mouse and keyboard for my computer kept on dying and then came back to live as I was trying to do stuff.  It got so bad I went and bought a new computer. And with my luck I’ve got issues trying to use it. The major problem now is both EXCEL an WORD the writing is white on black; WORD isn’t that bad as it appears to be easier on the eyes, but with EXCEL I’ve lost the colors I’ve been using as I add data. I don’t know what’s going to happen when I copy and post this entry on my blog. The issue is if I’m ready to self-publish my next endeavor, I don’t know whether the file I would be sending will look the same when the recipient receives it or whether it would the normal black on white. Hoping all this will be resolved when I contact DELL this evening.

With my “daughter’s” release of “her” first erotic endeavor,”Haiku Becomes Erotic,” I had to spend time with its promotion which included a dismal RaffleCopter with no real responses. Between the “two of us” there’s several WIPs being work on: My major one is an adult Contemporary romance entitled “His Darkest Secret”; and her first shape-shifting, BDSM novella entitled “The Transformation.” Our other WIPs include; my MG/YA Urban Fantasy entitled “The Secret of the Well”; and “her” second volume of 250 erotic haikus,
“she” also as a second erotic novella in mind which a sketch of storyline plot points that want to be reached.

The THUNDERCLAP I was attempting - - - FAILED. I need to think of my next promotional attempt I should use to help raise the funds necessary to get my adult contemporary edited and then to get it self-published which includes paying for a cover to be designed.

The best way, if anyone is in helping me raise the funds I need is to download my books as a KINDLE Unlimited and go through the entire book, this way I get can funds and it doesn’t cost anyone any money, which is the last thing I want to.

Here’s the link for my two books:

https://www.amazon.com/Robin-Leigh-Morgan/e/B00BWXT4VU

One of the things I haven't done is any reading/reviewing of a single book since May 7th, and late last night, May 17, 2017 I finally began reading a new book. Hopefully I'll be able to get my reading/reviewing of books back into my daily schedule of things to do. I can't tell you how grateful my dear supportive OH leaves me alone so I can do all my stuff. 


Have a BLESSED DAY today and weekend with your families.

STATUS REPORT # 102


I can’t believe I haven’t read/reviewed a single book since around April 18th, but then I shouldn’t be surprised as my steamier, erotic side has been kept under wraps for such a long, long time.


My new round of marketing has begun with my attempting to once again do a THUNDERCLAP for my debut romance novel, a MG/YA Paranormal romance novel, entitled “I Kissed a Ghost.”  I’ve only gotten 25 supporters and need 75 more with only 13 days left to go. It’s quite depressing not being able to round up 100 supporters. So I would really appreciate your generous support in my meeting my goal http://thndr.me/1MiAIX 
 

My next item of my marketing agenda is participating in the release party my steamier, erotic side is having for her anthology of 250 Erotic Haikus, where I’m planning to give away about two [2] KINDLE Editions of each of my two books.


The latest re-read and self-editing for my adult Contemporary “His Darkest Secret” is now about 10% completed with several necessitated changes having been made. My MG/YA Urban Fantasy, “The Secret of the Well” I’m putting on the back burner for the time being as I’ve got too many endeavors on my plate I’m currently working on.



I’m finding it somewhat of a daily challenge deciding which of my two writing sides should I work on next, but I believe everything will work out in the end and will also allow my non-romance writing side to have some time for myself as well. So guys, do any of you have a similar kind of dilemma thath you’ve  got to deal with; if you do I’d like to know.

I TRULY WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR KIND SUPPORT


TO ALL MY WONDERFUL FOLLOWERS
 

I really appreciate you being here.  I don’t believe I’ve ever really come out to ask for your support something I’m doing. 

If you’ve been following my blog then you’ll know I’ve finally decided to allow my steamier, erotic side come out of hiding and have a separate life and existence. My steamier side is about to release an anthology of Erotic Haiku, and is over 80% finished a debut erotic novella.

And as for myself, with the knowledge I’ve gain in writing the erotic novella, I’ve begun another round of editing my adult contemporary romance which currently has 239 pages, about 61,250 words and is 85% completed.   

I need to begin to raise funds to help me pay for the completion of these endeavors,  and I don’t want anyone to feel they should buy a copy of one of my two books to help me.  But I would love to have your generous support for my THUNDERCLAP campaign. I’m trying to reach a potential new audience regarding my debut romance novel, a sweet MG/YA Paranormal entitled “I Kissed a Ghost.”
 
Here’s the link to my THUNDERCLAP   

I want to THANK YOU for your kind support in advance and have a GREAT WEEK with whatever you’re doing !!!  :-) :-) :-)

STATUS REPORT # 101


Well to start with I’m very happy to say that my steamier, erotic side, “my daughter” Kathryn Heart, has ordered PROOF copies of her first erotic endeavors “Haiku Becomes Erotic.” And if all goes well, a KINDLE conversion will be order and the book will be released shortly thereafter.

So, if anyone is interested in following the writing endeavors of my other half, Kathryn Heart, you’re welcomed to do so at:




With above I can once again return to my own writing endeavors as well as my reading/reviewing of books, which I’ve fallen behind in. I can also concentrate on doing a more timing and regular posting of on-going entries for the several series of posts I’ve been doing.


Having concentrated on the writing endeavors of Kathryn for as long as I have, I’m decided to start a new re-read and self-editing of my adult Contemporary romance novel, “His Darkest Secret.” I believe I’ll be looking at what I’ve written through a “new set of eyes.”

Lastly I’m about to start of new round of heavy duty marketing for each of my two books, as I need to raise funds to self-publish everything Kathryn and myself would like to publish.


Here’s the links to both of my books, which are available as a Paperback, KINDLE, and can be read for free as a KINDLE Unlimited download.

HAIKU HORIZON #10 - DROP


This week’s prompt from the Haiku Horizon site is “DROP” and here are my three Haiku response endeavors:  


 

Jill dropped her school books
Jack picked them up, gave back, smiled
Puppy love begins

 

Betsy was overweight
She dropped over hundred pounds
Boys think she’s gorgeous

 

Steep drop in Dow Jones
Wall street investors nervous
Will it go back up?

BOOK REVIEW # 2017-017 - WEDDING DREAMS


Reading the stories in this anthology, I couldn’t help but remember growing up when I was 13 years old that one of the songs I always heard being played on the radio in 1964 had been “Chapel of Love” being sung by The Dixie Cups. If you’re not familiar with the words because you’re too young, here are the lyrics.

 

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Gee, I really love you

And we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel of love

 

Spring is here, th-e-e sky is blue, whoa-oh-oh

Birds all sing as if they knew

Today's the day we'll say "i do"

And we'll never be lonely anymore because we're

 

Because goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Gee, I really love you

And we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel of love

 

Bells will ring, the-e-e sun will shine, whoa-oh-oh

I'll be his and he'll be mine

We'll love until the end of time

And we'll never be lonely anymore because we're

 

Because goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Gee, I really love you

And we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel of love yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Goin' to the chapel of love yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Goin' to
