It’s week three of my first NaNoWriMo!! You can catch my intro, and Week 1 and 2 recaps. If you’re new to this blog series, allow me to explain: I’m sharing a weekly update during the month of November as I try to take part in NaNo2015 AND self publish my 2nd novel all at the same time. Does it sound difficult? That’s probably because it is! 😉
NaNoWriMo Recap: I know the ultimate goal for every NaNo participant is to add 50,000 words by the end of the month. And while I’m a fiction writer, I’m also a realist. 😉 So my personal goal for the month is 25,000 words. I’ve add less than 1,500 words all week. With only one full week remaining, I think my NaNo days are over.
While it’s nice to see the chapters forming for book 3 of the series, the most important thing on my desk right now is my 2nd born bookie: In the Shadow of Thy Wings. The release date is quickly approaching. I’ve only 2 full weeks remaining!!! So how is it going in the publishing world? Let’s see…
This week I worked on a MAD list of advertising projects that MUST be done by the end of the month. But sadly, even this list was put on hold while I put all my focus on the the final read through for Shadow. Even though this step takes a long time, the good news is when I finish reading it, I’ll be completely and totally done with the book. No more editing. No more revisions. I’ll likely have to tweak some formatting, but the book itself will be complete and not a moment too soon either. The release date is coming soon!
There is much to praise God for this week as He continues to pave my way. Please continue to pray for me as I work on these last minute touches on the novel, it’s launch, and the early stages of writing book 3.
What does week 4 look like: Along with taking time to enjoy some great meals with the family, I’ll need to finish up these various advertising projects.
I had my launch team sharing a collection of memes this week. Feel free to save and share to your heart’s content. 🙂
