Virus update. We’ve reached 66,205 known cases and 1,267 dead. This means since last week we’ve had 910 new cases and no deaths. This includes the totals from today.

Book news. I’ve finished Crimson Rose’s sixth 20k short story. Self edited it. Gave to the reader. It’ll be sent to the editor this week. The editor finished Sam’s June 10k word release. I’ll go through the editing this week and get it done before I publish it on the second Sunday of June. This is my typical release schedule.

I’ve started part two of the Acinonyx. Added 2,600 words of the 40k to 50k. Since it’s my last long story for the year, I took a break from writing for the week. I hope to return to Gwen’s Vella story, but I’ll have to see if I have the energy. I plan to edit three chapters, or fifteen pages, per day to finish improving Rainy’s third story to finish this year long project.

I’ve written 110,200ish words this year towards my 280,000ish goal.

Vella goal: 6,200ish words. I plan to work on the fifth one this week since I didn’t have time last week. The editor returned the three I sent her and I went through her suggestions.

The free short story where Felia meets Bastet is one I offer on my mailing list.

The cover artist finished Sam’s cover for her June release. I’ll send it in the mailing list I plan to write this week. It’ll be posted on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and my web page later in the month. Those on the mailing list get it before any one. Grins.

I finished editing Rainy’s second story and republished it. Waiting for Amazon to do its thing. The paperback will be done tomorrow. I plan to work on the third story this month. Once I do, this year long project to improve my older stories is done. Woo!

Book news. I’ve reached 8,800 words into Crimson Rose’s sixth 20k short story. I should add another 4k to 5k this week, which means it’ll be close to being finished.

The editor returned the suggestions for Rainy’s first story. I wrote them in 2018 when I didn’t have the income (due to disability) and resources to hire an editor. For a year she’s helped me go through my older stories and improve them. These three are the last ones we have to do. She sent me the suggestions for book two and I plan to go through it during the week of the 10th through the 16th. Most of May will be spent finishing these three stories. Since I’ve had them edited, I raised the price of the e-book to $3.99 and the paperback for $11.99 to match the prices of my other edited 40k to 50k stories. I’ll do the same with the other two once they’re done.
