It’s only been a couple weeks since the previous Infinitas Publishing status report, but I wanted to get back in the groove of scheduling these at the beginning of the month.
I’ve highlighted the projects that had changes in blue.
* * *
Starless Night: (Book 3 of the Distant Horizon series). I need to finish inputting the last half of the proofreading notes into the manuscript, and then I need to format the print edition.
Changing Tides: (Book 4 of the Distant Horizon series). On hold while working on Deceived 2.
The Glitch Saga (Distant Horizon spin-off series): Goal is to create a new cover and print edition for the complete collection edition. (On hold).
Deceived #2 – (Distant Horizon spin-off series): I finished inputting the proofreading notes into the manuscript and I’ve revised a couple scenes where I found pacing issues. I have a couple more scenes to revise, and then I can hand it to Isaac for developmental edits.
Next step is to create a book cover for Deceived #2, and continue revisions on Deceived #3.
Future Goals: Add Isaac’s notes from Deceived #5 (formerly #4) into the manuscript, revise Deceived #5, and revise #6 (formerly #5) before handing it to Isaac for his feedback.
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: On hold. (Needs revisions).
TWB 4: (Book Four of The Wishing Blade series). Needs rough draft written. Needs updated outline. On hold.
Runes and Ravens (Stone and String 3): Needs outlining and revision. On hold.
The Secret in the Shadows: (Prequel novella for The Wishing Blade) On hold. Needs the rest of Isaac’s notes input into the manuscript.
Wishing Blade Prequel (Prequel novella for The Wishing Blade): On hold. My next step is to write the rough draft of the new scenes and begin revising the original scenes to match the updated outline.
Once complete, this is intended to be a newsletter-exclusive story.
The Legends of Cirena – Collaborative Adventure Facebook Group: On hiatus.
The Dark Forest of Aneth (“Ro’nor (“The Restless Sands of Neel”) & Zynia (“The Dragons of the Mist”) cross-over / A Legends of Cirena short novel): On hold.
Goals: Rough draft needs completed via the Collaborative Adventure Facebook group, and there are a couple scenes I’d like to add earlier in the story. I already have a book cover concept, which still needs to be completed.
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 novel) : The Joran short story project is on hold.
Legends of Cirena Epic: Outlining on hold. Map of Litkanston on hold. This is intended to be a back-burner project.
“MOG”: On hold. (Needs revisions)
Huntress 3: Needs updated outline, revised draft, and continued rough draft.
Huntress Prequel: On hold at 18,000 words. Needs rough draft completed.
Game Design: On hold.
Future plans in game design involve: possibly preparing a print-and-play version of Battle Decks, polishing the elemental game card art and testing mechanics, and looking into options for feasibly producing Phalanx.
Space Adventure Comic: On hold.
Villain Problems: (WIP panels viewable on my Instagram). On hold.
Emberverse (Working Title): Revisions on hold. Needs title. Needs outline for “Season 2.”
Marketing: Again, no paid ads this month except for Amazon drip ads. I participated in a few more BookFunnel Promos, but was behind on including those posts as weekly promo highlights, and also behind on posting on Twitter.
However, I’ve already scheduled this month’s weekly BookFunnel promo highlights, and hope to do better with Twitter posts.
I’ve also continued having success with reading more fiction and non-fiction.
Next step: Move Distant Horizon Universe list over to MailerLite and create full-fledged onboarding sequence.
I’m also thinking of making a “Backburner Project Page” for projects that aren’t going to be focused on for a while, that way this status report page can be a bit more organized.
Other future marketing goals: Add a progress tracker somewhere for the different books. Test Draft2Digital for wide print distribution, test mailing list automations, revise Amazon ads, link to my Pinterest account on the Infinitas Publishing website, overhaul book categories and keywords, and do the usual business ledger upkeep.
LitRPG / GameLit Story: On hold. (Needs revisions and restructuring).
Other Stories: I’ve finished drafting and revising a sci-fi short story for the upcoming Writers of Warrensburg anthology. It’s currently a little over 5000 words, so it needs a bit more trimming, but at this point, it is now ready for beta-reading. 🙂
I also outlined a mermaid/siren sci-fi short story idea (700 words). I may try writing that to submit for a different upcoming anthology.
The YA SciFi Alien Invasion/Dystopian Conspiracy short story revisions are on hold. Comic script (“If I Had Asked”) on hold.
Untitled Fantasy Story: On hold. Next step is to review and adjust the first book’s outline, and then adjust book two’s outline.
SBibb’s Photographic Illustration: Future Goals: Update the Infinitas Publishing website banner. Figure out a schedule for uploading general art projects. Update the SBibbPhoto website to incorporate Daz work.
Daz PA: My Tender Affections pose set has released! 😀
I’m excited to finally release this set. This is a polyamory-themed pose set Isaac helped me create, focusing on sweet/cute triads. Was a lot of fun to make, especially since I didn’t see many other similarly themed sets in the Daz store.
My doggo-themed set is now waiting for testing, and I have two more pose sets Isaac helped me create that I’m working on polishing and then creating promos for.

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