Progress Report: 17/08/2015 – 23/08/2015

Welcome to week thirty-four.

Fantasy Book 2

I completed the read-through on the paperback version of this book, as expected, by mid-week. I have bought the cover image and made a paperback and eBook cover. This coming week I will be doing a final read out loud on my Kindle and hopefully it will be published before the weekend.

Zombie Novella

I continued working on this later in the week and got all the way to the end of the story, which ended up just over 9K. I have also started a second pass on it, which I hope to finish today, Sunday, so that it can rest for a few days (week?). I don’t think it’s going to get to novella length (around 20K), so may end up just being a long short story.

Other Projects

I have been playing around with the beginnings of another couple of short stories for submission calls I’ve seen. I may do some more on these over the coming week, depending on time. Next weekend is actually a bank holiday, so my time will be more limited this week, especially on the reading side.

The only remaining short story I had out there has been rejected. I’m not sure I’ll be able to find another place to send it as it was very specific to the submission call. If I can’t find anywhere, I may incorporate it into something else.
