Camp Nano July

I'm halfway through my newest book, The Immortals. TI is the first book in The Lonely Mountain trilogy. It's also my most hated book of the three. I hate it and I don't want to write it anymore. But I need to finish this. I've got seven days to write like 17,000 words. Don't think I'll make it, but I can certainly get a big chunk of this book done.

Next month I plan on putting TI aside so I can begin writing my short stories for Farther Side of Away. There's still a lot of stories I want to write from that world and I plan on doing it. With any luck, I could have that out in early 2014. But we'll see.

I've got to find a job for the next few months. I need a paycheck since DRC is done for a while.

My book is finally out on Smashwords, so you can buy it for PDF, Nook, Ibook, Sony Reader, etc etc. So it's as out there as it's ever going to be.

I'm still here

So I've been off work for the last week and I'm bored as fuck.

Last weekend my bff came down and we went to King's Island and we went to a couple of cemeteries to look for good headstones for cover photos. I had a great time and it was good to see her.

Oh so I saw Pacific Rim the other day and it was sooooo good! The Jaegers were awesome and so were the Kaiju.

I just loved it.

Tomorrow will mark 1 months since I published my book! That's pretty cool that its been out for a month now. Hopefully sometime next month it'll get picked up in some bookstores and maybe that will help with selling copies.

I should find out next week if I'm on this last project. I really hope so, I could use another paycheck. Time to start looking for something for the rest of the year. Blah.

I've started writing the first book in my trilogy. It's coming along ok. It's going to need a lot of work, which is fine since I'm not planning on publishing it anytime soon.

My bff Danielle has released her first novel! Go check it out!

All that we can do is just survive

My dad and I went to see Rush last night at Riverbend. Our seats kind of sucked (we couldn't see Neil or the string ensemble at all), but otherwise we were pretty close. I had a great time and enjoyed the concert a lot. They played their B setlist, which was nice because it has the Pass on it (one of my favorite songs) and I saw their A setlist in Columbus last year. It worked out nicely.

The downside was that I didn't get to bed until around midnight. Oddly, I wasn't too tired during work, but I am feeling it right now. As I write this, my eyelids are trying to forcefully shut themselves.

Work continues to be decent. A crappy question, but lovely people. I saw my TL from my last project and told her I finally published my book. She was quite happy to hear it. A couple of other people at work now know about my book.

This week, until the 5th, you can get it for free on Kindle. So far, 85 copies have been downloaded, just from the US store. The Japan, Italy, and India stores have sold one copy each. That's pretty crazy to know my book is being read as far away as Japan and India! Hopefully most of these people will enjoy it and spread the word.

Meanwhile, I've started writing book one of my trilogy. I haven't gotten a lot of writing done because of work, but hopefully tomorrow I can get some done. Since it's the 4th, I don't have to work, which is nice. But I'll be back at work on Friday. With any luck, we'll finish this project tuesday or wednesday and then I'll have a week or so before my final project of the summer.
