Today I worked on my list of books to write. I scared myself. I have at least notes for 20 fiction and 6 non-fiction. Some I have completed 1st or 2nd drafts for, most are just outlines and one or two scenes.
Wow. I feel like I should be immortal, I’ve got too much to do in one lifetime. “Sorry, can’t die now, booked.”
I also have gotten the list of “prizes” from nanowrimo, so I’ve spent time looking them over and debating which, if any, I want. Kobo gave me 10 free novels: WANT. Another place is offering 30% off a $200 a year subscription… um, no.
Then there’s things like Humble Bundle’s 25 books on writing strategies and methods for $25. Hm… useful, but pricey this close to Yule.
I’ve also spent the day trying to get my book uploaded to more platforms than just Amazon. OMG, you need a doctorate in artificial intelligence to figure out where the upload pages are. Four.. freaking… hours… not one upload. I wanted all of it done for when I get my new book cover. That way it would be simple to finish and publish.
You’d think I’d know better.
I did discover that Smashwords can… can, not will, upload to ibooks and Kobo, plus a few I’ve never heard of. And I want to try Wattpad. Apparently, if you sign up to post your book for free, a chapter at a time, you get free promotion. There’s only a few chapters in the first one. Maybe weekly is too fast?
Maybe I need more coffee?
