It's time for What's Up Wednesday, a weekly meme run by Erin L Funk and Jaime Morrow. Here's what I've been up to this past week!
What I'm reading
I read Ready Player One, which I really enjoyed. Then I read Firefight, the sequel to Steelheart, another fast-paced and action-packed read with some great twists. Then I read Ensnared, the third fantastical and awesome instalment in the Splintered trilogy.
What I'm writing
Oh, Alliance Book 5... I'm probably going to go into withdrawals when I finish this series. :P
My writing goal this week: More words on Alliance 5!
What works for me
Limiting how much time I spend on the Internet when I'm drafting. I'm at the stage with this series where I'm juggling so many elements that between this and freelance work, my brain is completely occupied (also, I'm not sure if it's just me, but I'm finding social media incredibly draining lately). So if I've been quiet on the interwebs, this is why! The difficulty is when you're solely responsible for promoting your upcoming book as well as working on a draft...
What else is new
Only I could catch two colds at once. Immune system, I am not amused. I have deadlines. *cries*
I'm preparing to put Adamant up for pre-order next week! It's set for the 30th but it might go up a couple of days early on some retailers (I'd rather be too early than too late, though!). That is, if Smashwords approves my file and the Internet stops crashing. (The Cursed Book strikes again. I've had so many near-disasters with this book that at this point, it wouldn't surprise me if the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse show up on my doorstep to stop me hitting the publish button. :P)
I'm also organising a release day promotion for the 11th March - sign-ups are open here. It's so close! o.O I'm alternating between flailing madly and hyperventilating. EEK! :D
