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:

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.

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.
