Last week, I joined this writer’s group. They have pretty much fashioned themselves a lot like the WriMoNaNo, but its month to month and you set your own goals. To join and find out more, go to the left of my sidebar and click on the tag below the picture.
Since I work what they call a flexible schedule, every week is different. So I have to schedule my writing times and stick to it. If not, nothing gets done. And I want to be like Lisa Olsen, fellow Indie author. Within the last two years she has written ten books and has published each one. She’s also been successful enough that she now stays home and writes all day. One of her books is Pretty Witches all in a Row. I’ve read two or three others of her work and they are GREAT! Lovey-love-love her! You all should go check her out on Amazon.
Since Secondhand Shoes has been out, I’ve sold 44 paperbacks on my own and have given away 3. And now I’ve got peeps asking when is the next book,novella, or novellette. Well, it’ll be sometime this year. Yellow Pradas and then will come Combat Boots. I’ll be keeping the shoe theme. Lila still has a lot to learn and Gram isn’t ready to go into the light. Oshun has stolen Julio’s soul and Lila must go into the Underworld to find him with Gram’s help, of course. But they only have eight hours to do so before he’s gone forever and Lila’s earthly body dies. Once he’s found, Lila must claim him as hers. Will she be able to find him in time? And how is she going to claim him in the Underworld?
But I’ve got characters bugging the kaka out of me for another project as well. My White Trash and Pill Heads series. The first book to the series is almost finished as well as the third book. This one stars a couple of grandmothers. Faith Wise, a total New Age Hippie Chick meets Laurel Soften, a Southern Baptist. When the two first meet at a baby shower they don’t exactly hit it off with their differences. What eventually brings them together is their grandbaby. The little guy’s parents are using roxies and zannies. Their actions put their baby in danger which eventually lead the grandmothers in a frustrating position with the State and in a dangerous one with their grown kids’ drug dealer while they deal with their extended dysfunctional family and their own haunted pasts.
Also another reminder:
