ROW80: Two Steps Forward…

First, last week’s progress:

  • Make final edits, format, and release Time’s Fugitive in ebook – Done!
  • Bonus: Anything on Holly Lisle’s How to Write a Series workshop – No (but it was a bonus anyway)
  • Three interval workouts and two shorter workouts each week – two intervals, one short
  • Track exercise and consumption each week – uhhhh…. similar to the above.

As for that first goal, you know how the rest of the post title goes…

“…two steps back.” Yup, I finished proofreading, made the changes, formatted, then uploaded – then found a couple of mistakes. Not typos, but technical details, revealed by a writing workshop I attended yesterday. Luckily, I wasn’t sure how long it would take for the book to publish on the retail sites, so I’d waited to make a formal announcement. So I’ll be making those changes today, and uploading, then I’ll announce when it’s up. If you’ve already purchased, no worries – this stuff isn’t something that most people are likely to even notice. But now that I know it’s wrong, I want to fix it – because I can.

So for this week, here are my plans:

  • Make fixes and re-upload Time’s Fugitive
  • Finish book cover I’m designing for historical romance author Michele Stegman
  • Complete Lesson 2 of How to Write a Series
  • Bonus: Cover for Hangar 18: Legacy
  • Three interval workouts and two shorter workouts
  • Track exercise and consumption


Overall goal progress:

  • Release Time’s Fugitive, in both ebook and print – Ebook done, but needs a couple of changes. Print interior formatted.
  • Complete Holly Lisle’s How to Write a Series workshop – on hold until TF out
  • Bonus: Any planning/outlining of new book, beyond workshop exercises – on hold until other goals accomplished
  • Release Hangar 18: Legacy – OR – release Times Two (Time’s Enemy/Time’s Fugitive box set) as an ebook – on hold until other goals accomplished
  • Bonus: Both of the above – on hold until other goals accomplished

How about you? I’d love to hear from you! What kind of goals are you setting for this round of ROW80 – or if you’re not a writer, or not doing the ROW, for this spring?

  1. Wahoo, I am SO excited that the book is done, whether or not the little technical errors are there. Of course, this reminds me of when I submitted my MA thesis a few weeks ago, after spending an entire day feverishly editing and formatting according to university specifications, only to be told that my margins were STILL off by .25″. Ugh.

    But you’ve gotten a ton done, so I hope you are patting yourself on the back. I can’t wait to start reading Time’s Fugitive!

  2. The release of TF is thrilling! It is a wonderful aspect of e-publishing that you can correct after it’s “gone to print.” Best wishes for your sales!

    Have a great week with the rest of your goals as well. *shaking pom-poms for you*

  3. Louise, so true! And Julie, you got it, that’s one of the things I love about publishing independently!

    LOL Lena, it’s always something, isn’t it?

    Thanks to all of you! Your support really means a lot to me. 🙂
