Had a long busy day at my day job today. Feeling tired, but creative. I'd like to get a few pages written tonight before bed time. I've been half following an outline for this new book, I'd say its more of a general points I'd like to hit. It's nice to know where the story is going before it gets there. Last time I just wrote and got there when I got there. I'm more focused this time, and I'm hoping that's going to lend itself to a better finished product. Not that I think Marked isn't a great book :)

Gave the blog a whole new look last night, I'm liking the overall look now. Going to try and get some writing done tonight after the little guy goes to sleep. I'm hoping to knock out a few pages at least. I've had a part of the story in my head all day at work, and I hope I can get it right tonight.

Trying desperately to get Marked reviewed on some book blogs. It's so hard being a self published author, because you have almost no way to market yourself. I want to be successful, but I'm having a hard time getting to that goal.

Marked is officially back up for sale! I couldn't be happier about the re edit, it turned out great. I'm very lucky to have such amazing people in my life who are so willing to help me out.

I've been taking more time with Chased (book 2), I'm able to flesh out the characters a bit more which I think is going to be very beneficial to the readers. Hoping to finish writing it by the end of next month or possibly earlier.

I worked hard all afternoon, and I got the book formatted!! It should be up and available for sale again at some point tomorrow. Hooray for that, I can finally rest easy.
Formatting is almost done on Marked. There is a very distinct possibility that I may have it back up on Amazon by tonight. If I do, that would mean it would be available sometime tomorrow for purchase. I'm hoping to try and get it featured on some blogs, but who knows.

Got some amazing news today, the re edit of Marked is finished! I couldn't be happier, and I hope to have it reformatted and up on amazon again by the end of the week. I'm also hoping to find a literary agent soon. Its a daunting process of putting together packages and hoping that someone will like my book enough to represent me. If that happens, I could maybe get published by an actual publishing house. I'm excited and scared all at once, but I'm going to try it.

With the help of my wonderful sister in law, I settled on a name for the new book. It's going to be called Chased, the title works on a few different levels. I'm excited to finally have a name for it, it feels more real and less work in progress. I still have a lot to wrap up, but it's coming along nicely.

I'm at the point where i'm beginning to think about potential title's for book 2. I think I might be stuck, I have no clue what I want to call it. When I wrote Marked, I called it Jilly the entire time I wrote, I didn't come up with the title for a while after I finished. This one has the working title of William, but I know its not going to really be called that when it's published.

I'm plugging right along, and I'm about 5 typed pages away from being as long as Marked. I still have a lot more story to tell, and a lot of things to resolve. The re edit of Marked is coming along nicely, and should hopefully be finished within the next few weeks.

To write, or not to write???? Not feeling super creative, need to get back in the swing of things. My goal is to at least write a few pages today. So far I've gotten a few paragraphs done, so that's something lol.

I'm feeling very creative after a nice slow Sunday with my family. My batteries are officially recharged, and I'm ready to dive back into the world of Jilly. I'm really liking where the story is going, and the characters that are being introduced.

On a side note, Marked is still being re edited for me, and once it's finished, I'm going to put it right back up on Amazon.

I've been taking a break from writing this week due to a headache that wouldn't quit. I'm all set to jump right back in and get going on book #2. The story is getting really good, and the characters are definitely evolving. I'm excited for everyone to read it when its all done and edited.

Marked redux

Doing some revamping on Marked. I decided to pull it from Amazon so I can put out the best book possible. I'm still hard at work on the second book in the series, but I'm pushing back the finish date a bit so I can make sure its properly edited the first time.
