Progress Report: 19/09/2016 – 25/09/2016

Welcome to week thirty-nine.

Norse Novels

Very litte has happened on these over the past week. This coming week I need to get the promo prepared for the release of Beyond the Third End on 30 Sept, get the second book live for pre-order and start on the paper edit of the third book.

Other Projects

The Bookstagramgala on Instagram happened and was very successful. It was a tiring day, but worth the effort. Hopefully, there will be another one at some point.

Welcome to week thirty-eight.

Norse Novels

Book One, Beyond the Third End, is now up for pre-order (ebook only), with a release date of 30 September. I intend to have Book Two on pre-order by the time Book One goes live. That shouldn’t be too difficult. All the pieces are in place. This week I’m going to have non-writing stuff going on, so I’m not committing to finishing anything in particular. I’ll just see how it goes.

Other Projects

Nothing to report on the writing front. However, this coming Saturday, the 24th, a group of authors (including me) are holding a Bookstagram Gala on Instagram. Do pop along and join in if you’re around.

Welcome to week thirty-seven.

Norse Novels

Book Three is still in edit stage. I reckon I’ve got about two more days to go until I finish this round. After that I’ll be finishing the set up of Book One on pre-order and after that finalising Book Two.

Other Projects

The short story collection is now live on Amazon. I had a launch day on Instagram on Saturday, which went well. Guess I’d better start on the second one now.

Welcome to week thirty-six.

Norse Novels

I’m probably about a third of the way through with the edit of Book Three. Progress was slow at the beginning of the week, plus there was a Bank Holiday, and I didn’t do any work on it over the weekend. So, that’s a sum total of four days. I’ll continue with that again this week, but there are some other things I need to do this week, so I may not get to the end. Although, I hope I do.

Other Projects

Not much has happened elsewhere, although I hope to make the short story book live for next weekend, so I need to do some promo graphics.

Welcome to week thirty-five.

Norse Novels

Book Two is pretty much ready to go now, but isn’t properly uploaded to all platforms. I won’t do any more of that until I have the copies of Book One, which should be by the end of the coming week. I did start an edit of Book Three, but hardly any done so far. That will be my main project next week. Hopefully, I can get a full pass done, but it is a short week with the Bank Holiday.

Other Projects

Only other thing this week was doing some admin.

Welcome to week thirty-four.

Norse Novels

Well, Book One is now complete in as far as the paper copy is concerned and final copies have been ordered. I need to finalise the eBook copies in both mobi and ePub this coming week. Book Two is also close to being finished. The paper book is formatted and cover drafted. I also need to finalise the eBook. I’l try to do that this week as well. As it’s a Bank Holiday next weekend, that’s probably all I’ll get done.

Other Projects

The short story book is finalised and copies ordered. Once I have those, I will need to decide on a final release date.

I didn’t do any admin this weekend. I’ll try to do that during the week, as well.

Welcome to week thirty-three.

Norse Novels

I finished the work on Book One and am now waiting for a proof copy of the book. The cover and the extra graphics took a while to sort, but hopefully they’ll look good. Didn’t do anything on Book Two, but will do the final read through this week and then work on finalising the book and the cover for this. I want this ready to go when I release Book One, so this is my main priority this week. If there’s any time, I’ll start an edit on Book Three, but I don’t expect to get to that until next week.

Other Projects

Finally managed to sort the problems with the file for this (on my own) and am waiting for another proof just to make sure everything’s okay.

I also did some work on my end of year accounts. I hope to send them off next weekend.
