Wednesday author chores

Today is my flex day again. I really want to be working on a couple of manuscripts, but I have other duties to attend to.

I started off with Lisa Burton Radio. I have two authors who are looking for a bit of promo, so I wanted to get their shticks out the door. I spent a couple of hours on those, then shipped them out. One of them already returned his, and while I’m tempted to work on it again, I’ll probably put it off for a couple of days.

Viral Blues got its first review, and it’s outstanding. Things like this make me glad to know that someone had a good time with the story.

I need to tour this book around, so I spent some time writing tour posts. I have a bunch more to write, but can only do so much in one sitting. Three of them were shipped out, and that’s a reasonable start.

Additionally, I received a post that I’m going to host, then assembled and scheduled it. This is part of the Something Wicked tour the Story Empire authors are going on. This is going to be a fun group event, so I hope you guys will come along. I’m including Something Wicked as part of the tour for Viral Blues.

As I catch up with the tour posts, I may put the touch of a few of you to host something. I’m a couple of weeks away from that, but working that direction.

I think the sidebar is up to date now.

Yak Guy has moved out of the spotlight. You can still find him by visiting my Amazon page, along with all my other books. I added Viral Blues to the carousel, and gave it Yak Guy’s premier real estate. If you click on the larger covers, they go directly to those books.

All in all, it was a productive day. No new fiction, but there are other tasks an author has to attend to.

Old What’s Her Face is home now, so productivity is coming to an end. It’s time to enjoy a few hours like other people do with a day off.

  3. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. It’s all in a day’s work for an author. I thinker’s rare we can sit down and concentrate on one thing, particularly writing. I’m thrilled to provide your first 5-star review for Viral Blues. I’m sure there will be many more to follow.
    Enjoy your down time!

  5. I like the clawed hand pointing 🙂 Creepy effect good!
    Today, work was so smooth and went by with busy and fast, I don’t want to go tomorrow because I know it won’t be that way. For you, I hope you enjoyed those hours of leisure as you know tomorrow won’t be that way, either. Onward toward the weekend!

  6. Sigh… promoting. One part I don’t look forward to when (if) I ever get there!

  8. A great day off, Craig. I would like to do a Lisa interview for my new book Through the Nethergate. I am waiting for it to go live on Amazon in October and then I will email you. Looking forward to the Story Empire posts.

  9. All said, you had a productive day. Congratulations on a stellar review. I know you will have more coming. It’s hard to balance everything you have to do as a writer. I think you are doing a great job.
