Is April Over Yet? No? Okay…

Alright, I want April to be over. What’s going on lately? Right now, I am working on volumes seventeen and eighteen of Dreamland. The last volume will be either in May or June. Once I am done, I will had it edited and cleaned up. When I will have it published, I do not know. For now, I am to finishing something I have been working since 2008. (Wow, ten years. I know, right?)

What else is there? Next Monday will be the title drop to season eight of my Wasteland Project. I’m still working on Earth Child and Circle of Friends. I might get Pleasure Kingdom edited and cleaned up. I plan to do some adulting this week. How? There are a couple of bills to pay and some summer clothes to get out. Other than that, I don’t know what I am doing. I am waiting to get paid this week though.

I feel like I need to be doing more. I haven’t figured that out yet. But I will have it and make my life some much easier. Until then…

Hello 2019!

Welcome 2019! You beautiful year, you! So far, I am doing well. I got a new job to go with my other freelance writing job. It’s another freelance job and I have already submitted proposals to get the job. I haven’t gotten anything yet, but I have set up the payment method and took the tests to increase my chances. The payment method will take three days to approve and I am below average with my test results, but I passed. Meanwhile, I have also picked up walking again. I am trying to ease into by walking every Sunday. This month, it will be just once a week. Next month, I will start walking twice a week. I should me walking all week by July.

I am cutting back on some of the writer sites that I visit. A bad experience with one of them led me to this decision. Right now, I am hanging around the site, Romance Divas, and their chat room on Chatzy. They are a chill group. My one problem is that I wish that I could be sociable on these groups. Usually, I am working on my writing and not really focused. I might slowly post at the others again. It will depend on how I feel. I am still writing though. That’s not going to change. I just need to try and get a story edited and published. Meanwhile, I have so many ideas running through my head to expand the Wasteland Project. I will have to sit down and take the time to write them all out. Wish me luck and…

Happy New Year!

Goodbye 2018! It’s been so long, but you had to go. You were a little bit better than 2017 even through your darkest moments. Still, I got some series and stories completed. I wanted to get this out a little bit earlier, but here we are.

I will set small monthly goals for myself this year. I will be finishing up some works as well. This time, I will try and get edited and published more. (Hopefully, by a traditional publisher.) I might even try to get a publishing agent. Plus, I will pick up another job as well. So many plans for 2019. Let’s just hope it all sticks.

Happy New Year and may 2019 bring out the best in you!

The Search is Still Going

I decided to take my search in a different way. I already know that developmental editing will not be cheap. I decided to try and see what the reasonable price would be for a developmental editor. I asked around at all of the writing communities that I am part of. I have seen some good tips. Some are saying that publishing houses have editors in them. They commented that Steel Prison isn’t long enough to be a novel. (Hence why I am going to a developmental editor in the first place.) They all agree that it’s really expensive. A couple of them offer some sites to check out for future reference. I bookmarked them and I will go back read them.

I need to go back to looking for an agent again. I’m trying hard to curve my laziness. It’s working, but it needs to go faster. I will keep working at it. What do you think? Do you have any ideas for a reasonable price for a developmental editor? Leaves your comments in the comment section of this post. While you’re at it…

Moving to New Stage in the Game

I have decided to go a more traditional route with my publishing. I have been self-publishing with ebooks. But, now I want to go the traditional way of publishing with Steel Prison. I’ve had people edit it many times, including my mom. I sent it through Nano in 2009. The current of the manuscript count is 48,827 words and 109 pages long. I feel that it could be a bit longer. What I am looking for is a professional developmental editor. I have started my search and made a list comparing prices and their selling comments. In the past, I have used beta readers. But since this is going the traditional way, I decided to step it up and go professional. So far, I contacted an editor I follow on Google+, five editors on Linkin, and one of the writers from a writer chatroom that I frequent gave me a link to a bunch of editors. I haven’t checked the website yet, but I will do it tomorrow. I know that professional editing is not cheap and I don’t have that kind of money at the moment. So, I will make comparisons and come down to the most reasonable price that I can try and scrape together.

I also want to look for a literary agent as well. Ideally, I want to find one before Christmas. I have a website to start my search. I will start to look on Independence Day. Wish me luck, everyone. While I look for an editor and an agent, you can…

New Book Publishing in the Works

Good news, everyone!

Sometime in June and July, I will be publishing a book that I have been sitting on for years. The title will be called Steel Prison. I have been it through Nano and the now-defunct Autonomy. I will have it beta read to get it polished up one more time. (It’s been edited a good number of times. I forgot how many.) There was a cover for it on Autonomy, but I think I lost that one. I made a cover during my college years for like a hard cover copy for a digital photo editing class, but it’s the wrong image format. Speaking of hard covers, this might be my first book that I will have made into a hard copy along with ebook. I will see if that turns and if it is possible.

Stick around and see everything unfold, until then…

Dreamland

Title: Dreamland (Volume Two)

Summary: Now that Chikira has begun her battle with her Yume-no-Muso, she’s going to need all of the family support she can get. However, the problem mostly lies with her father, Jakuchu.

He is mostly at work so that he can pay for his daughter’s treatments. As a result, his marriage with Sana feels like walking on a tight-rope with his long periods of work-educed absences. Because of his daughter being bullied on her first day at her new school, Jakuchu might have to change how he does things. But first, he is going to have to come home. Starting with Chikira’s birthday.

So Close to Thirty, but So Far Away

Yes, that is right. I am one more year closer to the big 3-0. It doesn’t feel like it yet though. Still, I can’t wait to see how Friday will go for me. I can’t wait, to be honest with you.

I have no big projects planned for next month. I’m just going to keep writing as usual. I do plan to finish a story or two next month. My Netflix queue is shrinking again. I’m not down to six items. I have made some really good progress in that department this month.

It’s kind of hard to write something here when I’m not posting the City Lounge Project. (I’m resuming the New York section this Thursday.) Speaking of which, book one of the project will be finished by April. Then, it will cycle back to Paris for book two. Hm… Maybe I should post showcases of my fanfics to fill the non-posting in between. If I do that, I will have to tact on another day in the week for posting. For now, I will focus on adding more to New York in the project. Stick around for volume two of Dreamland in April. Until then…

A Brief Announcement

I would like to take this time to make a brief announcement to you beautiful people:

I am looking to publish volume two of Dreamland somewhere between March and April. It might be before or after I go on vacation. I will have to see how my schedule looks before I send it off to the beta reader. Meanwhile, I am still moving my site. I have taken to fixing some of the music on some of the sections. I’m shocked that sixteen years could total up to so many pages. Tomorrow, I will be posting some things as gifts as Valentine’s Day.

Meanwhile in my little life, I have been burning through my Netflix queue. I’m down to about nine to ten items left on the list. I kind of wish the American Netflix had more anime and Japanese movies and TV shows. They used have A LOT of Japanese movies, but most of them disappeared. <sigh> It’s a shame, really. Maybe when they faze out their DVD section maybe we’ll see a bigger selection in the American Netflix.

Also, my car is currently being served. (Yippy, not!) I’m waiting for Toyota call back and that it’s ready. It’s not like I really need it right away, though. (I work from home as freelance writer.) Still, I would like to have my car. I need to put gas in it too.

Anyway, be on the look for volume two of Dreamland. Until then…

It’s Coming!

It’s almost here!

I have edited and formatted volume one of Dreamland. I even made the cover for it. I am thinking about trying a new strategy. I think I will make the first volume free after I get more books out. I plan to this will the first two books. Speaking of which, volume one will be out  on the twenty-ninth. I don’t know what I going to publish next. (It actually feels good to be publishing something again.)

I don’t really have much to say tonight. I’m just announcing my book. My job is going great and I just got paid this evening. Things have been a bit slow, though. I hope things will pick up this week and this month. Anyway, stick around for Dreamland‘s debut. For now…
