RS: I Haz Planz 07/05 & April Round Up

I’m not here! It’s an illuuuuuuusion!

Okay, I am here, but not here as I might normally be. DSB is off on the road, ready to go be an elf in the marvellous end of South Wales.

Actions Last Weekblank calendar from OpenClipArt

~Mail three reviewer/spotlight bloggers over the course of the week
Nope. Just nope. Somehow that just seemed to slip by me. Aaaah well.

~Visit two stores locally to see if they would like to stock Meeting Each Other: The Full Story
I got to one. I have to go to the central office. Pain in the ass. 😦  The other I didn’t manage to get to so maybe I can do that later on.

~Follow up my Ann Summers pitch
. . . moving on.

~Start preparing a second Twory

So not a great week. Fortunately this is a slow month for me and none of this stuff is essential. Phew!

April 2015 Round Up

Well . . .

~Get paperback version of ‘Meeting Each Other; The Full Story’ available for sale on Amazon and CreateSpace.
Hahaaaa! Done.

~Send out this month’s newsletter
Sorted. Nearly onto quarterly updates.

~Devise a sensible, non-spammy marketing campaign that is fun and sustainable
Gonna see how the Twories go. After a couple of months of that I’ll look into something else.

Change That Shit Up!

So where does that leave me now for the rest of year? Well, kinda like this. Completed tasks struck out, changes in red text, additions in green text.

  1. Have paperback version of ‘Meeting Each Other’ series complete and for sale by end of April
  2. Edit ‘Slippers & Chains: Second Base’ following comments from beta readers by the end of June.
  3. Draft ‘Slippers & Chains Three’ (and give it a damn title!) by November 2015 (probably during NaNoWriMo)
  4. Begin editing ‘Slippers & Chains Three’ (at least as far as a Kindle Read) by December 2015.
  5. Switch to a more manageable newsletter schedule of quarterly postings with bonuses for new releases when the current ‘New Pet’ story is done.

Targets for May 2015

The news from Breathless Press has really knocked me about a bit. It means I can (and should) slow right down so that I can properly self edit the series to fit the standards I demand for Little Vamp Press.

This means I need to speak a bit more time going over what I want to do and how. But this month is mostly about Ileandra editing ‘Walking The Razor’s Edge’ so my goals are kinda diddy. Let’s see.

  1. Collate comments from beta readers and begin tentative edits.

Activities For This Week

Nothing! This is a week off. No goals, let’s just leave things as they are, let DSB enjoy the LARP and get back to work when we’re all back. 🙂


Not really much to add here. I’ll do all the small bits and bobs, let Ileandra do her thing with ‘Walking The Razor’s Edge’ and then we’re away!

Raven's Signature In Black

About Raven ShadowHawk

I take great pleasure in writing erotica and am merely one side of the proverbial coin. My other half, 'Ileandra Young' writes fantasy and the occasional comedy piece. My six-part series 'Meeting Each Other' is available in full, through Amazon and Smashwords while my debut novella 'Sugar Dust' is now re-released (!) available through Amazon via Little Vamp Press.
