I am really on a roll with these weekly update post things. LOL Not exactly sure what I have to talk about this week, but here goes…
So, last week I finished my short story. It’s 18.5K words, completely full of fluff and smut, and was a lot of fun to write. It took waaaay longer than expected, but RL and other mishaps got in the way. It’s called Perfect Catch, and is about two Aussie guys, best mates, Cal and Troy. They’re absolutely perfect for each other but their lives have never been sync, until now. They go away for a boys weekend of fishing, and suddenly its not about fishing anymore. 😉
Perfect Catch will be out in October – more on that at another time.
Blood & Milk survived edits (wooooot!) and I’ve sent it to another wonderful pre-reader, this time someone who lives in Tanzania. I’ve never had a book pre-read by so many people before! LOL But in this case, the more the merrier. Especially when those readers all have perspectives and experiences different to mine. Everything is still on track for ARCs to be released on June 10th, and for the release on June 23rd.
I have decided Blood & Milk will be exclusive to Amazon for the release, and the 90 day KU cycle that follows.
Cuore di Terra Rossa (the Italian translation of Red Dirt Heart) had a great release week! And Spencer Cohen Book One had a great first week on All Romance eBooks, hitting the best seller list!
I’m hoping to have the French translation of Cronin’s Key this week, and I’ll be uploading it as soon as it lands in my inbox 🙂 I’ve also seen the French covers for the translation of the Red Dirt Heart series, and they are FAB! The first book is due out in October, which is very exciting!
In other translation news, I’ve just organised to have RDH translated into German! This is incredibly exciting for me, as I’ve looked into the German market for some time. I’ll post more on that a little closer to release.
So, what’s happening this week? I’m starting something new! I’ll be starting on my overweight guy/personal trainer romance story. I had the first prologuey/chapter/thingy written in a notepad somewhere and now can’t find it! I’m pretty sure I remember how it went. LOL But that’s what I’m starting this week. I love the starting of a new book! I have no clue how long it will be, and I have no clue about what will happen in this story, whether it will be comedy or angst. Basically I don’t have any clue about anything really. I have no outline or plan, like normal, I’m just gonna start and see where it takes me. 🙂
This week, I will also be doing formatting, more edits and proofreading (for me and other authors) and I need to get my accounts in order – as it’s only four weeks until the end of financial year here in Australia, I haven’t started ANY financial spreadsheets for my accountant so far, and I need my tax lodged and returned before we head to America. And OMG isn’t that coming around quickly??
I swear, I need a personal assistant. And a house cleaner, and a nanny, and an ironing lady, and a personal chef… I used to say I need a clone, but I’m pretty sure if there was an identical me, I’d just tell myself to fuck off. LOLOL
On that note… until next week!
