11/02/2019 – 17/02/2019

Hi, everyone.

This last week, I did a couple of reads of Forest 6, and I made up the paperback, and I sorted out all the graphics, and put them into the document. No, I didn’t do the website, but I did do a lot of research for my Patreon page.

In the coming week, I’m going to let the books rest and work solely on my Patreon. It’s possible I’ll be ready to launch by next weekend, but unlikely. My target is the following weekend, which still isn’t that far away. So, if you’re interested, keep watching. 🙂

This week, I completed the following books:

  • The Burning Bridge by John Flanagan (audio)
  • The Gorgle by Emma Fischel
  • Ogre Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine (audio)
  • I’m Fine! by Andrew Tresidder

Until next time.


04/02/2019 – 10/02/2019

Hi, everyone.

This past week, I did get my read aloud and Kindle read of Forest 6 completed and I managed to do the first draft of all the graphics, but only by working over the weekend, as well. Needless to say, the website work has been pushed back again. Never mind.

Over the coming week I will be continuing with more reads of Forest 6. I might also make up the paperback, if I feel I’m at that stage, by the end of the week. Or, I might do that website work. 🙂 I’m also looking at doing something on Patreon, but that will involve quite a bit of work, so it won’t be immediate.

This week, I completed the following books:

  • Avril Crump and Her Amazing Clones by Angela Woolfe (audio)
  • So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson (audio)
  • The Space Between Trees by Katie Williams (audio)
  • Son by Lois Lowry

Hope to see you again next time.

28/01/2019 – 03/02/2019

Hi, everyone.

So, I did my two Kindle reads of Forest 5 and finished the graphics. These have been inserted into the paperback, but not the eBook version yet. This meant I could do all the page endings for the paperback (or rather, current page endings) and get all the chapter start pages sorted. This is now going to sit until I’ve got to the same stage with Forest 6. I didn’t get any website work done, because this took longer than I’d hoped.

In the coming week, I’ll be starting on Forest 6 with a read aloud and probably a Kindle read. If I have time, I’ll start on the graphics. I also hope to do that website work.

In the past week, I completed the following books:

  • The Cat on the Mat is Flat by Andy Griffiths, Terry Denton (audio)
  • Our Appointment with Life by Thick Nhat Hanh
  • The Song from Somewhere Else by A F Harrold
  • Messenger by Lois Lowry
  • The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan (audio)

See you again soon.

21/01/2019 – 27/01/2019

Hi, everyone.

What have I done over the past week? Well, I did my Kindle read of Forest 5 and I did an ePub read aloud of it. So, plus one to the list. I’ve nearly finished work on the graphics, but they’re not in the document(s) yet. Minus a half. I did get the basic paperback format set up. I also managed to get Kids & Folkore uploaded to all other distributors/platforms, which wasn’t straightforward, as a graphic of a book cover inside it caused an error – not one that the ePub checker picked up, but still, I couldn’t get it uploaded with it in. Never mind. It is gone now. I didn’t manage to do any more website updating, but I hadn’t put that on my official list, so phew.

In the coming week, I need to get those graphics done and inserted into the documents. I also intend to do another two reads of Forest 5, probably Kindle read alouds. And finishing the website updates moves up a notch to a slightly higher priority.

This week, I finished reading the following books:

  • Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky (audio)
  • Ask an Astronaut by Tim Peake
  • I was a Rat! by Philip Pullman (audio)

See you in another seven days.

14/01/2019 – 20/01/2019

Hi, everyone.

This week has been quite productive. I completed the paper edit of Forest 6 and transcribed it. I also did a read aloud of Forest 5 and completed the drafts of all the pictures for the book. In addition, I’ve spent some time working on updating my website. This is an ‘in progress’ job, but I got a good chunk of it done.

In the coming week, I intend to do a Kindle read of Forest 5. I’d also like to finalise all the graphics and make them into digital copies. If I can also get the paperback document for Forest 5, at least in draft form, set up, I’ll be doing well. Especially, as this is the week Kids & Folklore comes out of Kindle Unlimited and Amazon exclusivity. So, I’ll be uploading that to other sites at some point. I know I’m not going to get this all done, unless some kind faerie casts a magic spell to help me.

This week, I completed the following books:

  • The Horrible Story and Others by Margaret Mahy (audio)
  • The Invisible Eye: Tales of Terror by Emile Erckmann and Louis Alexandre Chatrian
  • The Time-Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess by Julia Jarman (audio)
  • The Boy, the Wolf, the Sheep and the Lettuce by Allan Ahlberg
  • Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker (audio)
  • Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Until the next time.

07/01/2019 – 13/01/2019

Hi, everyone.

This week has been a week of uploading. What fun! However, I now have most of my books uploaded to PublishDrive, even if some are only in the omnibus form. That’s how I’m going to leave it for the moment.

I have started on another short story, which is probably about half written. I know where I want it to go, but I’m not quite sure how to get there yet. I’ve also been creating drafts of the pictures for Forest 5. Both of these things I will continue with in the coming week. I will probably do a little more editing of Forest 6, although I have several other options of things I want/need to get done, so that might not happen.

This week, I completed the following books:

  • The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris (audio)
  • The Rook by Daniel O’Malley
  • Wed Wabbit by Lissa Evans (audio)

See you next week.

03/12/2018 – 09/12/2018

Hi, everyone.

Last week, I did do a little writing. 🙂 It’s a short story about Sprout, the goblin in the Forest books, to post every day next week on Instagram. If you’d like to follow along, you can find me as JulietBoydAuthor.

I also have news of another sale on Kobo. The boxset of The Midgard Born Series, which I put together last week, will be at 40% off, from 12-17 December.

Cover for The Midgard Born Series: The Complete Collection of Four Novels. Shows the image of the four compass points and of a Viking girl walking into a wasteland.

Last week I read the following books:

  • Brief Guide to Celtic Myths and Legends by Martyn Whittock (audio)
  • Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

Hope to see you again next week.
