Progress Report: 22/08/2016 – 28/08/2016

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.

Colors of Immortality by J M Muller

Progress Report: 01/08/2016 – 07/08/2016

Welcome to week thirty-two.

Norse Novels

I completed the paperback formatting of Book Two, apart from all the front and back matter, and I also completed the read out loud. I didn’t do any work on the covers, but that is definitely on this week’s agenda. I also have some front and back matter to finish off for Book One. If I finish that, then it’ll be on to a final read out loud of Book Two.

Other Projects

I received the proof of the short story book and there were some changes needed. I have since been battling with CreateSpace to get another good-looking file uploaded. If it doesn’t work this time, I’m going to have to contact them, because the problems I’m having just don’t make sense.

300 Days of Sun by Deborah Lawrenson

Progress Report: 25/07/2016 – 31/07/2016

Welcome to week thirty-one.

Norse Novels

I finished the read out loud of Book One and also completed the read through of Book Two. Next on the agenda is putting Book Two into paperback format, and then doing a first read out loud. Hopefully, that should be completed by the end of the week. I haven’t done any work on the covers, but I might leave that until I’ve finished the above.

Other Projects

Still waiting for the proof of the short story book. That should arrive this week. If so, I hope I’ll be able to read through it at some point so I can order some proper copies and possibly make it live on all platforms. Haven’t decided about that yet. I might delay the launch.

I’ve also spent a couple of afternoons on admin. I’ve still got more to do, so might do the same this week as well if I can spare the time. I really need to get up to date. I think I’ve printed out everything I need, but now I just need to check it all and update my spreadsheet(s).
