Let’s first get into what I achieved in March from the list of shit to get done…
1 – Release Spiros & Jenny on March 19th in paperback.
2 – Finish the other books so they have an April 21 release date for the four novels, and a June 21 release date for all Porn Star books. These are just tentative dates at this time.
3 – Get the character lists done on the long weekend. It’s only the four novels that need doing, but then I’ll need to set them all up on the website.
4 – Do the one thing that’s most important and that’s to start writing this year’s book, OR, at least, write out a base plan for it.
5 – Continue looking into newsletters and mailing lists.
6 – Get my details uploaded for PLR (Public Lending Rights) for my books to earn money from library borrows. I managed to send 25 books off to the NLA (National Library of Australia) for legal deposit. And maybe I can get Spiros & Jenny off before the March 31st cut off date.
7 – Get back to commenting on other blogs.
8 – Write April’s blog posts.
As you can see, my monthly list looks like a toffee apple, or to those Americans who follow me, a candy apple. I did four things on the list and didn’t do four. Even Stevens.
I also had other things to take care of, such as a twelve hour stint in hospital after twelve hours of pain that flattened me for the rest of the week.
I wrote some emails, uploaded my books into the PLR, watched the corona virus and saw the Aussie Dollar flatline in America. I also went down a rabbit hole crushing on a drummer much younger than me but at least he gave me a hell of a lot of inspiration for a story/novel. Not sure how it will go yet, have some details written but nothing solid. I have other things to write first.
And if you want to see the others things I’ve been up to, head over to my style blog, Jewel Divas Style.
Okay, so let’s launch into what I want to do in the month of April…
Before I start, it’s also the technical school holidays this month, even though most schools here have been let out weeks ago because of the corona virus. It’s also easter so I will be taking the time off to try and get shit written.
1 – Finish the other books so there’s a release date for the four novels, and all Porn Star books. These are no dates at this time due to waiting on my cover designer.
2 – Do the one thing that’s most important and that’s to start writing this year’s book, OR, at least, write out a base plan for it.
3 – Continue looking into newsletters and mailing lists.
4 – Get back to commenting on other blogs.
5 – Write April’s blog posts.
So there you have it,five items for April’s shit to get done list. We’ll see on May 1st whether I achieved them or not.
Meanwhile, here’s March in social media pictures…
