Here we are again at the end of another week. I know saying that I’m ready for the weekend would be akin to saying water is wet, but…well I already said it, didn’t I? It was a hell of a week, but in a good way. Like HELL YEAH that sure was a week!
The Station is humming along – I’ve sent it out for a secondary beta read, and my editor is on standby. The cover is almost ready, and I’m arranging a fun little launch sale for the rest of my works. I needed a victory like this. Even if the story sinks like a stone, just getting something else out there will feel great. Still debating whether this one should be KDP Select.
Anyway, our group had a really busy week! Let’s see what’s going on.
Penelope Crowe released an Easter story! It’s doing pretty well and it’s free for one more day. Why not head on over and check out Francine and the Super Pet Spy Bunny? Who the hell can resist a spy bunny? Not this guy, I know that for sure, though I’m waiting for the free period to end so I can support a fellow author. Oh, and she has a new cover for her book 100 Unfortunate Days. Not sure when that’s going live, but I like the look of it. AND she posted about the dark this week. Busy woman! She’s @penelopecrowe on twitter.
Paul Dail is back on vacation! Heh. Okay, sort of. He’s at a horror convention and not just as a fan – he’s trying to get some networking done, and I say more power to him. He has a great post this week about whether it’s okay to spread negative reviews via Triberr/Twitter. I might elaborate some on my comments next week, but for now, just read the thing. Just a reminder that Paul has a set of short stories (Free Five) up for free on Smashwords, along with his political horror story The Golden Parachute and his novel The Imaginings. You can find him on Twitter at @pauldail.
Kim Koning talked about the sixth sense, things that go bump in the night, and the reason she writes. Great post! You can find Kim’s work in Tales for Canterbury and she’s at @authorkimkoning on Twitter.
Aniko Carmean posted about how publishing opens up a whole new can of worms when it comes to questions from others, especially coworkers. Yeah, been there, done that. It’s fun and yet not fun all at the same time. You can find her book Stolen Climates at Amazon. I’m more than 20% in, and so far it’s like a competent bizarro world version of Troll 2 and Twin Peaks had a baby – I’m enjoying it a lot. You can find her at @anikocarmean on Twitter.
J W Manus apparently returned from vacation! Welcome back. She put up a post every day this week, covering topics from horrid homonyms to writing like Lawrence Block to the importance of timing in publication. As always, great stuff. You can find her at @callieshand.
So yeah, things continue to roll along for the group. Stay tuned!
