Taking my queue from our fearless, intrepid leader Kait Nolan, I’m doing a special post of Three Awesome Things, because this week the Awesome ovefloweth. Ready? Set! AWESOME!!
Keepers of the Flame: Origins# 1 has broken 100 downloads on Smashwords–AND it just got approved for Smashwords’ premium catalogue, so it it should be available for free download across multiple platforms/sites soon. 100 may not sound like a lot to you guys, but it was better than I expected, considering it’s only been out a couple of weeks and it was only available via Smashwords. I really didn’t know what to expect, what with all the noise out there in the indie/self-pub world, and so its modest but steady climb has got me doing a Tigger Bounce all over the place. NUMFAR! DO THE DANCE OF JOY!!
My rough draft of Big Dang Projeckt (aka The Minstrel’s Daughter) is complete! Clocking in at 99K words, it’s finally done! DING DONG THE DRAFT IS DEAD! DEAD, I TELL YOU!! BHWA-HA-HA-HA-HAAAAAA!!!
This is especially awesome, because I had a horrible drafting day on Saturday due to lack of sleep. But then I got a good night’s sleep, and on Sunday, settled in for the day’s words at 9:00 am on the spot, determined to spend the day getting as close as possible to the end. I ended up booking 6.5K words and (with breaks) typing THE END at around 7:30 pm. Woo-hoo!
Out of curiosity while trying to see if Keepers: Origins #1 was available at online vendors yet (it’s not) I discovered on Ye Olde Amazon that BRIGHID’S MARK (Keepers of the Flame #2) is NOW AVAILABLE FOR KINDLE PRE-ORDER!
I can’t believe it’s out in the wild already! I mean, we’ve got over three months for release! I don’t even have ARCs yet. 🙂
Naturally this means I’m going to have to think up a free gift for those who go for the Pre-Order (not just for Kindle, but anywhere). This doesn’t mean that if you want a free ARC from me you can’t have one–far from it. Just drop me a line. But, if you DO pre-order, also let me know, and I’ll add you to YET ANOTHER LIST.
I’m beginning to feel like Santa here. I DO have lists, and I AM checking them twice. 😀 😀 😀
Considering it’s only a couple of days into the week yet, I shudder to think what other Awesome might be coming down pike. (Oh, who am I kidding–I AM TOTALLY READY FOR MORE AWESOME.)
Gee, I guess I should get to working faster on Keepers: Origins #2, huh? 😉
