I’m starting this weekend post with Bastet’s Daughters: The Acinonyx. This is the space exploration novel I wanted to write for a while. I know there will be a second novel for these characters, but it won’t be written until later this year or next year. Anyhow, I self-edited the pages I’ve written so far. I’ve handed them to my reader after printing them. She’s read the first thirty pages and I’ve fixed the corrections she noticed. The other pages are also in her hands.
As for words I put into this story this week, I added 4,445. I have one or two scenes left to write this coming week. Self-edit those. Print. Give to reader. I’ll have everything done by the weekend, which means this book is going to be published on Sunday the 9th.
I also added the cover to my web page. I’ll write the summary next weekend.
Cleo’s story is coming along. I’m going to slot this one into my 1k words a day schedule after I finished Acinonyx. It’ll take me about a week to finish the 5k words I’d like this story to have. This week I added 384 words to it. I didn’t work on it much, having been focused on finishing my longer story.
Crimson Roses’ second story is also coming along. It’ll be added to my 1k slot after I finish Cleo’s. I wrote 758 words in it this week.
Also, I started something new last week. So, I have a Youtube channel where I’ll talk about various things related to my books, writing, gaming, and whatever other topics I’m interested in.
Gaming news. I’m still playing Diablo 3. I started playing Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire for the Xbox, but the loading screens are horrible. It takes half a minute to load the map, so I gave up on playing this unless they find a way to shorten the loading times. Plus, there’s other bugs which annoyed me.
I’m adding another new feature to my Sunday posts. From now on I’m going to list the current stories I’ve read for the week, like I do over on Twitter and my Facebook page. This week I’ve read:
1) Ressaline Tiara: Part two by Robin Roseau is book seven of her Ressaline series.
2) No Room at the Inn by Brooke Winters is book one of her The Hotel series.
3) Archangel’s War by Nalini Singh is book twelve of her Guild Hunter series
4) Unleashed: Case of the Bull Doggish by Erik Schubach is book nine of his Unleashed series.
