This week I’m trying to catch up on a number of things, like, you know, writing fiction. In order to improve my skills/technique, I’m upping the amount of flash fiction I write. Not to mention, finishing a story in a couple of days gives a greater sense of accomplishment right now than trying to put together a novel.
Talking of which…
Puck’s Call is the first book I’ve ever tried writing to market. It’s also shown me my skills aren’t as strong as I thought when it comes to writing something readers might like.
I mean, I like the genre. Some of my favorite books are fantasy romances. And even though it looks like this might morph into Urban Fantasy, I like that, too.
But this book is not nearly what it needs to be. And I’m not sure I have the time to make extensive repairs.
So, for now (and this may change on a dime), I’m switching back to the Trial of the Ornic series. My goal is to have the second volume revised by mid-July.
I’m also working on redesigning the covers for Shining Armor and Lady Fair.
(If you’ve read the books, I’d love to hear your thoughts on what genre they’re in. I think Urban Fantasy, but I’m not sure.)
Finally, the Smashwords Summer/Winter Sale is coming up. It runs from July 1-31 and I plan on at least discounting some of my books. A couple might even end up free.
I’ll post a link and more info the closer we get to the sale.
Thank you for reading! If you’d like to share your thoughts fantasy genres or how you’d like me to approach Smashwords’s sale, or have any questions about it, please leave a comment below.
