Over the last month I've been doing some heavy duty editing of 3 of my novels. Content editing, not grammatical which isn't quite as hideous as the latter. Just finished literally 10 minutes ago (and celebrated with a slice of sweet potato pie with whipped cream).
I've been indulging in more leisurely writing; Adaptation, Problem Solver and I now need to focus on publishing some new works. I get many requests to continue stories that I've already written; WOS, Urban Vampire, but I have so many other stories that are dying to be brought to life.
I can barely wait to start on new projects but I still have many obligations that need to be fulfilled first. Book three in the Urban Vampire series will be released in 2013, as well as book 4 of Wheels of Steel.
I've also been doing some reading. I got caught up on my Kim Harrison Hollow's series, and I read an anthology by Tiana Laveen--both were very good. I have Violette Dubrinsky's new novel and I hope to be able to start it this weekend and Creepy RJ has completed a story on Literotica that I helped give feedback on and I definitely want to read the ending. My friend OhMyGoodness has a new story on WattPad that I started and really like. My reading list also includes buying the new novel by Sienna Mynx and reading Wool by Hugh Howey.
As far as my own writing career, it is going well enough for me to consider making it a full time job. My pesky first job interferes with my writing (smile).
And speaking of writing; I noticed a new beta list on Amazon.com. They've had lists for the top 100 best selling stories within specific genres. Several of my stories have appeared on the list in the genres of multicultural, African American and Erotica. But a few days ago I noticed that they now they have a top 100 best selling authors list. It is also separated into specific genres.
I was very proud to see that I was ranked as number 61(changing hourly) in the top selling writers on Amazon.com in the genre of EROTICA.
It's more of a reason for me to seriously consider making writing my career instead of a passtime. But anyways, that is for future consideration. For now I'm going to tackle the next chapter of Adaptation. Talk to you guys later.
