I’ve always tried to post three times per week, plus have Lisa Burton Radio on Thursdays. I hear whispers of folks stepping things back during the Summer, but I never have. There are times when I have more to say, and will exceed this number of posts, but I like to keep fresh content coming.
This isn’t always easy, so sometimes you get pet pictures, or something about sourdough. There are times when I’m not actively drafting a new story, and still want to post something.
April and May were tough months. My paycheck job was busy as it ever gets, and that takes a certain amount of calories. I also set a goal of releasing Yak Guy before school lets out for the summer. This is because my experience with summer releases isn’t very good.
Good news, two new five star reviews showed up this week… so far. An author could always use more.
During this same stretch, I was swamped with Lisa Burton Radio interviews. Since I am a weekend warrior as an author, this cuts into my productivity time too. I closed my current novel, and focused on getting other things accomplished. In this, I feel like I’ve been successful.
I have interviews scheduled ahead until the later half of June. I have one more to assemble and schedule, but since you can’t read it until the end of June, there is time to catch my breath. I’m down to following up authors I’ve sent materials to, so there will be July interviews. If you’re interested in having a character interviewed by Lisa, it’s possible to shoehorn one in based upon other folks dragging their feet.
Over at Story Empire, I need to check the schedule and write those posts I’m going to be responsible for. I may write something and get it scheduled over the coming weekend.
I’m against the whole theory behind this, but I went ahead and posted one anyway. Please look up at the top of my blog.
Today, I dusted off The Voyage of the Lanternfish and read the whole thing; all 30,000 words. If things work out, I may be able to add some words to it on Saturday. I’m introducing the pirate crew, so a few of their stories are appropriate. Fortunately, a bunch of sailors telling stories isn’t too hard to sell.
I have one more event in the getting acquainted with new characters part, then there will be a huge sea battle. A battle with monsters and magic included. I’m excited to get back to it… if things work out.
