Good morning, everyone! It’s Sunday morning here in eastern North Carolina, the sun is shining, but it is cold.
It has been a busy and productive week here. As many of you know, I am working towards the goal of beginning to publish my fiction works. As I write in several genres consistently, I have decided to set up pen names for each genre. I spent the majority of my week setting up websites for those four fiction names, and I have updated the links in the “For New Readers” section in the upper right-hand side of your screen. Feel free to visit them, but please keep in mind that I am building them in my spare time, so several pages haven’t been populated yet, and the blog has not begun, either.
The rest of my week was spent working on my nonfiction books.
The Daily Prompt 2017: December
For those of you who use my prompt collections, the December edition of The Daily Prompt 2017 will be coming out on November 21st. It contains thirty-one brand new prompts and rounds out the year with a final prompt that will help you focus on your writing goals for 2018.
The Daily Prompt 2017: December Workbook
The Daily Prompt 2017: December Workbook has the same thirty-one prompts as the e-book edition, but this format allows writers to pen their own notes on the pages alongside each prompt. It will be published on November 28th.
This will be the final workbook that I will be publishing. I tested the waters for six months to see if this would be a welcome commodity, and in all honesty, the only copies I sold were to myself as I purchased proofs to make sure all the formatting was correct. So, unless a large group rallies and begs me to continue with these paperback editions, they will no longer be published.
I will, however, continue to publish the full 2017 prompt collection in paperback format. This edition lists each prompt and does not provide the space to write out your response to the prompts within the book.
The Daily Prompt 2018 series
I have been steadily working on the prompts and formatting for the 2018 Daily Prompt series. These will begin to roll out to the stores on December 26, 2017 with the publication of The Daily Prompt 2018: January.
That has been my week. With the holiday season coming up, the kids are I are looking forward to adding some new traditions to the home. I will continue to write throughout the holiday season, but my daily word count will not be as much as it has been. I will also be spreading my words out between my nonfiction projects and my fiction projects.
Tune in next week for my next update.
