Camp NaNoWriMo Goals

My Camp NaNoWriMo goals were writing-related, not project-specific, since the writing process includes more than putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard). It's more like—write; edit; promote; repeat. Plus all the in-between steps. Too many to mention.

I'm juggling a lot of projects right now. I knew dedicating the month to one book was an unrealistic target so I set up some flexible writing-related goals.

1. reformat / pre-edit A Wizard's Choice
2. schedule A Vampire's Tale promotions
3. start my latest work-in-progress (WIP)

I reformatted my soon-to-be released book A Wizard's Choice and emailed it to my editor. She sent it back with round 1 edits / comments, and I'm in the process of addressing her mark-up.

A cover reveal for A Wizard's Choice will be coming soon...

I ran a successful 99c/99p promotion for A Vampire's Tale around the Easter long weekend. Promos ran with Red Roses Romance, Pillow Talk Books, and Romance Reads.

My latest WIP is turning out to be a massive undertaking. I have had to do a lot of pre-writing research—including pages and pages of handwritten notes and diagrams—so my word count is less than 500, but my storyline is sorted... and after a little more thinking... the writing will start in earnest.

Chapters: Interactive Stories released my TapTale Fly Boy as a visual novel in April too which was really exciting. Check out the book trailer.

All in all, April was a successful writing month for me. I can't wait for better weather so I can write outside in my family room.
