Wow, so June did not go as planned.
I had two weeks of complete childcare disruption, and with a tight schedule on my current book, that was enough to really stall things.
So, I’ve had to reassess my publishing schedule for the rest of the year. That’s a big knock-on effect for two weeks of problems. But, that childcare is something I rely on entirely. My progress relies on it. My business does.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom by any stretch. It just means moving the goalposts. Switching things around. And that’s one of the great things about being an indie author; I have the freedom to do that.
So, with a wince, let’s assess my goals for June:
- Finish current WIP, edit, and send to beta readers. I’m close to finishing my first run of edits. Now planning to get this to beta readers in August.
- Order cover for current WIP. No point in doing this yet.
- Set publishing date for current WIP. This will now be September.
- Worldbuild for co-authoring project. Done!
- Start worldbuilding for next series. Lots of this done too!
- Set up streaming schedule. Pushing this back until September.
- Set up website-based book sales. Partially done, I need to finish this off.
July goals. July is Camp NaNoWriMo, so most of my month will be taken up with that:
- Complete Camp NaNo to 20k word target.
- Finish first run of edits on The Settling.
- Finish setting up website-based book sales.
