Couple of things to go over first before I get into the trappings of my mind today. This is going to be kind of subject to subject type of post but a good overview of the happenings in my fun-filled life.
Business first. There may be some changes coming to my blog posting schedule. If you’ve paid attention, I post on every even day of the week (2nd, 4th, 6th, etc.) unless the “On This Day” post lands on an odd day. Roughly, that means I’ve posted about 14-15 posts a month. After five months of this, I’m beginning to wonder if I can keep up that kind content production for the foreseeable future. So, starting in June, I’ll be switching it up. My plan is to begin posting every three days instead of every other day. That means blog posts will likely be on the 3rd, 6th, 9th, and so on of every month. There will be variances of course depending on when the “On This Day” post falls (maybe that will be a bonus post for the month). Everything else will stay the same though.
Still nothing on the book art for “Dim the Veil” but I’ll let everyone know once that happens. No progress on the method for savings towards the professional edit either. I’m going to be looking into some options soon though and hopefully come to a decision. Again, I decided against gofundme and kickstarter because if someone decides to give anything over $5, I fear that I cannot offer them anything in return besides the novella once I release it and I don’t believe that’s ethical.
Bookworming. Recent reads include a bevy of books. A couple of fantasy tomes were “Heroes Die” by Matthew Woodring Stover and “Shadowmarch” by Tad Williams. Both were good for what they were but did not blow my hair back. “Heroes Die” was more an original idea with sort of a pseudo-sci-fi element to it. “Shadowmarch” reminded me of “Game of Thrones” and some of the other books of that ilk. I also finished Mark Haddon’s “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” which I will probably review in the next newsletter. Definitely a fun “read” as I listened to the audiobook. I’m a little behind in my reading challenge over at Goodreads so I need to get on it and read some shorter books I think. It’s these 500-600 page fantasy epics that really slow me down :/
And that concludes your quick update of my life.
Call to Action: I’m curious to know if anyone has any thoughts on how often I post blog posts. One every other day was really a challenge to myself to see if I could do it but also provide enough content to gain readers. I can’t say for sure if this has really gained people interested in reading my content though. I don’t get much feedback besides from friends and family (am I even doing this right? lol). Maybe switching it up will help.
