Blushing A Lil Bit – (& I Haz Planz 24/07)

Sometimes all you need to do is click into Amazon to feel a whoooooooole lot better about yourself. ^_^
What am I talking about?
Book reviews.

I don’t know why, but earlier in the week I just thought I’d check out how my reviews were doing. I don’t get notifications for them so, on a whim, I thought I’d have a look at what was happening across Amazon UK, Amazon CA and Amazon US gauge the lay of the land.
Since last time I checked there have been three reviews for ‘Vicki & Lara‘ on Amazon US. Two of them are 5*! I was so thrilled and buoyed up by it that I bought myself a little bottle of cider to celebrate.

Reviews for Vicki & Lara on Amazon US

These are they… just lifted from an Amazon screen dump.

When I first set out on this journey I never expected to make buckets of money. That’s a good thing too because my latest Amazon statement doesn’t give me much hope of being able to buy that house up the road any time soon. But I didn’t expect people to respond to the stories the way they have either.
Vicki’s story seems to touch people in a really deep way and while it does for me, I didn’t expect the same to happen to others too. So I’m glad that it has.

Thank you for reviewing me guys. It means a lot. Honest. *kisses*

More than that, this is a bit of a kick in the box to get the other three stories released. They’re all written; they just need a bit of polishing before going out to my editor. So really… what am I waiting for?

Well at the moment I’m waiting for the blush to subside. :p Then I’ll be rolling off to get some more work done on my Meeting Each Other series.
Oh! And speaking of work….

Da Shared Brain is clearly freaking out over WTRE. That shouldn’t have anything to do with me, but it clearly is affecting me (d’uh!) so I’ve not done as well as I was hoping this week.

Last Week
Hmm. Could have been better, but not as bad as I thought it would be given the absolute funk I was in at the start of the week.

~Complete at least 1,500 words of deep edits on ‘Eric & Morgan’
Yes! At laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast! ^_^
Not more than that by any means but the story is moving again and I’m back in the right head space. This week I’m gonna slap that beast until it cries for mercy. I want it done!

~Prepare enquiry email for Breathless Press regarding ‘Slippers & Chains
Done and sent. Next week I’ll be able to tell you a bit more about what’s going on there but for now, just sit tight a little bit longer. I promise I’ll let you know what’s happening soon.
*pinkie swear*

~Choose another freebie for the solo site and get it ready to upload
Nope. No excuses I just forgot about this one. Since one of July’s goals is to get that website live I need to give some focus to this goal too.

This Week
This is the last week of July. If I want to hit all my goals for this month there are two main things I need to do. So that’s what I’m going to focus on this week.

  1. Finish deep edits on ‘Eric & Morgan.’
  2. Put the last set of freebies on the solo website and link in the domain name

Two simple, easy things to get done this week. Nothing taxing or requiring the carrying around of a giant laptop. I’ll leave that to Ileandra.

Wish me luck peeps!
Hopefully on the other side I’ll be able to tell you more about all sorts of bits and bobs, including how my submissions are getting on.
