It’s been over a month since I posted here. Which is ironic because this blog used to be my primary outlet for writing, and now all I do is write, but I never write here.
I have to decide if I’m going to keep this blog going or not. I’ve been struggling with that for years now.
Warrior has sold 327 copies since I put it on the Amazon Kindle store on Jan 18. In the past two weeks it’s gone from a couple sales per day to an average of over 10 per day. In fact I sold 100 of them in just the last week. If that pace keeps up, I’ll be happy.
Warlock (Book II) is well underway. I’ve got 42,000+ words so far and have been averaging about 3,000 words per day. At that rate I’ll hit the 125K mark somewhere in the early to mid April timeframe. Just about when taxes are due. I expect at least a month of edits and proofreading. I haven’t yet decided if I’m going to self-publish again, or if I’m going to try for a traditional publisher once more. A lot will depend on how well Warrior is doing by then.
I’m a bit less than 60 days into my 90 day Kindle Exclusive agreement. When that is up I’ll have to decide whether to do another 90 days or if I want to try Smashwords, Kobo and other self-publishing avenues. The thing is, Amazon is just destroying those options in terms of potential sales.
Not paying much attention to politics these days. It all sucks. I despise the Democrat leadership, but not a whole lot more than I despise the Republican leadership. And there really isn’t any other alternative. The prospect of a Hillary Clinton campaign for President positively nauseates me, but that’s probably where we’re going. Unless Elizabeth Warren can knock her off, then we get the prospect of a female Obama clone whose career was entirely based on lying about her heritage to get into a top university and get a lucrative law position. Sheesh, this country deserves to decline.
