The second novella, Love's Master, is shaping up nicely. I will finish it this week, and then editing begins. I plan to publish in July. It's looking like it will end up at around 25,000, if not a few thousand more. Elaina, the fabulous artist who will be doing the cover for this one just as she did with Vampire Dreams, has me in queue, so the cover will be coming in a little bit.
And the third novella, which has no title as of yet, I fleshed out with the help of my critique partner last Friday, so I'm chomping at the bit to get at that one. I'm trying to keep myself in line and finish Love's Master first, but it's difficult when so many ideas for this third one are just bubbling up in my brain. I'd like to have this one finished, edited, and published by summer's end.
I don't know how many words I've written since last Wednesday since much of my time has been spent editing, but assuming I wrote seven pages, I'm coming in at right around 1800. My goal was 3500 a week, but with all the editing and promoting I've been doing (I didn't even mention the promotion efforts...Twitter, blogging, creating widgets--that calendar countdown widget in the upper right hand corner is something I did the other day--emailing other bloggers about swapping blogs...it takes almost as much time as writing!), I'm ok with a little less writing because I know the publicity is necessary. However, I'd much rather be writing than anything else. :)
I hope everyone is having a great week! To see how everyone else is doing, click HERE.
