A new year, and it’s time to reflect on the past month with a status report! 😀
* * *
Starless Night: (Book 3 of the Distant Horizon series). On hold for revisions while finishing Deceived drafts.
Changing Tides: (Book 4 of the Distant Horizon series). On hold with a rough draft at 50,000 words.
The Glitch Saga (Distant Horizon spin-off series): I’d eventually like to create a new cover for the complete collection as well as a print edition for it. Might be a while before we see this, though.
Galina’s Saga (Deceived) – (Distant Horizon spin-off series): The rough draft for Deceived #5 is currently at 25,600 words. (Previously 6,200 words). Managed 19,400 words last month. Progress on this was slower due to working on other projects, holidays, and needing to work out some plot issues.
Once the rough draft is complete, it’ll be time for revisions of the entirety of the series (except book one, which is already released). I’m debating whether or not to change the cover design of the series before I get started on the next one.
Lily’s Story: (Distant Horizon series spin-off/prequel novel) On hold. (Has outline).
Sky Runner: (Multiverse novel). On hold. (Has outline)
The Multiverse Chronicles: On hold. (Needs edits).
Little One: Needs Isaac’s notes added to manuscript, and then revised.
TWB 4: (Book Four of The Wishing Blade series). Needs rough draft written. Needs updated outline.
Runes and Ravens (Stone and String 3): Needs outlining and revision.
The Secret in the Shadows: (Prequel novella for The Wishing Blade) On hold.
The Legends of Cirena – Collaborative Adventure Facebook Group: Ro’nor-Zynia cross-over is on hold.
The Wind Mage and the Wolf (“Livena (The Wind Mage of Maijev”) & Nuaka (“The Gryphon and the Mountain Bear”) cross-over / A Legends of Cirena short story): On hold while finishing the rough draft of Deceived #5, but will be the next major project so I can get it ready for release in late February.
“MOG”: On hold. (Needs revisions)
Changeling: (Huntress #2) Needs formatting for print.
Huntress 3: Needs rough draft completed. (Currently at 25,000 words) On hold.
Game Design: On hold. We need product shots of updated Phalanx board for The Game Crafter.
Space Adventure Comic: Due to me doing a lot of work with a Daz project, Isaac didn’t get as much access to the computer to work on this. He did however, manage to get a little work in on choosing character outfits for a couple of the main characters, and he also managed to get the computer away from me long enough to set up a scene which should include several different panel shots for the first chapter/episode.
Emberverse (Working Title): Revisions on hold. Needs title. Needs outline for “Season 2.”
Marketing: BookFunnel promos have been submitted to, though I still need to set up the weekly promo highlights for the blog. Most of the paid newsletter promos for January have been set up, as well as a few for February (yay for end of the year coupons!).
I still need to revise Amazon Ads for the UK and Germany. I also need to check book categories and keywords, and I still need to cull the Wishing Blade Universe newsletter for inactive subscribers.
Last month I continued running paid newsletter promos for Whispers in the Code as well as The Wind Mage of Maijev. We might be starting to see some sell-through, but it’s too early to tell for certain.
I’m also trying to do a lot more reading of the genres I write in, as well as non-fiction related to writing and marketing, and reading for-fun genres I don’t usually write to improve writing craft. (Plus it’s nice to be reading again. Seemed like I hadn’t been doing that as much lately).
LitRPG / GameLit Story: On hold. (Needs revisions and restructuring).
Other Stories: I still want to revise my YA SciFi Alien Invasion/Dystopian Conspiracy short story. But it’s currently on hold.
SBibb’s Photographic Illustration: I still need to update the imagery on this blog and the Infinitas Publishing website banner.
I’d like to create a general plan for what I want to write/release/create for Daz next year to start off as a general blueprint.
Daz PA: The holiday kitten morph and poses set I created for the DAZ House Cat was sent out and seems to have been nicely received. 🙂 It was one of the PA Holiday freebies that was free for a few days in December. Not sure if it’ll have any more free days or not. I’ve also finished the main pose project I’d been working on last month, with the exception of if there are any issues during testing.

Happy writing and reading (Or 3D rendering if you’re into Daz)! 🙂
