Last year was an absolutely fucked up year, and shit has already been happening this year, personally, BUT, to bring this back around to blogging/writing/publishing, I found that posting monthly was a good fit for me, so I’ll continue doing that this year.
I’ll still be talking about what I’ve done in the last month, and what the plans are for the coming month. Post about the release of the Porn Star Brothers books in hardcover (finally), potential new books, and the odd post about other things, such as the anniversary of Jackie Collins’ death, and anything to do with legalities where writing and publishing is concerned. Or I’ll post something just for the hell of it. There are also some anniversaries coming up this year so I’ll be talking about those things as well.
A lot has already happened, as you’ll soon see. Something I decided in late November 2020 was to close down the Porn Star Brothers book series website to make life easier for myself. And as much as I loved it, and thought it was so freakin’ awesome, again, I needed to make life easier for myself and not have an extra website to upload a whole pile of details to. And also, the series has come to an end with And Always, so it’s not like the website would be added to in the coming years.
To get this party started, let’s launch into February 1st’s post containing what I’ve already done so far this year, and what I hope to get done this month and what I have planned for the year.
Green is for done, orange for in the process of, and black is what is yet to be done.
So let’s get into it.
Here’s what I have already achieved in the first month of the 2021…
– 1 – I closed down the Porn Star Brothers website and moved much of it here to L.J. DIVA. This process started in November, and is now finished.
– 2 – So that means I added a lot of special pages here at LJD with exciting extras concerning the Porn Star Brothers series. The Story’s Timeline, Family Tree, Business Tree, Book Quotes, and Character Lists were added to the menu. I also added extras for the four novels in Book Quotes and Character Lists, AND added a HOT MEN page full of pics of the men who have inspired the characters in my books, along with hot men in general to inspire heroes in anyone’s novels.
Henry Cavill is a favourite here at LJD…
– 3 – Reworked the book pages so all of the books are now on the BOOKSTORE page and then link off to their individual pages which have many store links to buy from, plus other relevant information.
– 4 – Spiffied up the front page a little by adding two sections for the PSB series and extras, and changed the “For Your Enjoyment” section to Novels. I also changed out the social media apps for pics at the bottom. I prefer them more than the useless widgets that never update properly. And it’s the three I’m on most.
– 5 – Sent 544 blog posts back into draft mode, purely because after twelve years they no longer reflect who I am, or where I want to take this website.
Here’s what is still in the making for 2021…
– 1 – The release my four standalone novels in large print and dust jacket hardcovers.
– 2 – The release of the Porn Star Brothers series in dust jacket hardcovers.
They’re almost done. I just need to proof a second batch and then release them in March (hopefully). And this was the same as last year which just went to shit, but things are back on track.
Meanwhile, here’s what I want to achieve for 2021…
– 1 – Get the cover for the final Porn Star Brother finished, uploaded, and proofed as a paperback and dust jacket hardcover for release in March.
– 2 – MAYBE write a novel and MAYBE release it in September, BUT there is no promise and no deadline.
– 3 – Continue to post to Insta, FB, TW more during the week and pin to my Pinterest boards monthly.
– 4 – Write a short story for a reader magnet. I have an idea, it’s interesting…
– 5 – Get that mailing list set up for my books, and a newsletter set up on the website.
So, that was the yearly plan that’s already in motion. Twelve things to do. It isn’t much, but let’s get into my plans for Feb and break it down…
For the month of February, and all others, the most important things to get done are the first two…
– 1 – A mailing list for my books and a newsletter for the website.
– 2 – Get the second round of proofs and then set them up for release.
– 3 – Get March’s blog post done.
There is so much more to come, exciting things are afoot, people!
