ROW80 Check-In: Move Along, Folks…

It’s Wednesday, time for another exciting RoW80 update!!! Okay, maybe not so exciting as all that, but I feel that’s how I know something is being done right. There’s not a lot to say because things are moving steadily along, getting done, and keeping on track. Awesome for productivity; not so awesome for interesting blog posts.

Which means I’m going to hit you with an ad. Because there’s this nifty little Kickstarter Campaign for Soulless going on. I’m only $70 away from my goal, though more would help make The Slayer Saga kick off in style. There are a lot of really great promotional incentives for fellow writers, though I realized the incentives aren’t very helpful for readers in general, in which case you can always donate a little here. Every little bit counts!

Actually, since typing this up (sometimes, I type up posts a day or two in advance, because you never know when you might be short on time and need to have something ready to just throw up), some kind soul donated $75! The Kickstarter goal has been reached! However, I lowballed my goal big time, so I could still use a lot of extra money to make Soulless the best it could be. If you have the chance, check it out, share it with your friend, etc, etc, etc. If I manage to hit a high goal of $800, I might even be able to make it to a convention this year to promote my work, which would be amazing (and especially good for spreading the word about World Unknown Review before it’s published, which is always good.

Okay, so, that’s over. Let’s have a look at my goals since last check-in:

Goal One: Serpent in a Cage. Somehow, I messed up the formatting on my Google Drive, so I’ve spent most of the week thus far trying to figure out how to get it back and, once I couldn’t get it back, changing the font on my slow ass computer because I didn’t like how the change made the last font look. I don’t know. I’m weird like that. It was a huge time-suck, but I managed to still pull that off and get the chapters typed up. Gooooo me.

Goal Two: Short Stories. I’m plugging away at a ghost romantic story right now, which has been going pretty well. It’s not exceptional, but it isn’t bad either, for a Roane Publishing collection. I’ve also got four stories floating around in the ether right now, so, while I’m not hitting my ideal “story a day” goal, I’m standing on pretty solid footing.

Goal Three: Heartless. This has been going really well, too, definitely getting out more than just a page a day. I also worked the characters from the first book that I wanted to see more of into the story already, so I’m pretty pleased with how it’s moving along, though it does make me eager to get my edits of Soulless back from my awesome readers.

So, as I said, pretty solid with the goal-keeping, so not too terribly interesting of a post. But I bet there’s some more interesting post from my fellow RoWers here, so check them out.

Happy Writing!


  1. Sounds like you are doing great on goals, and congrats on reaching your initial goal on Kickstarter (hope you reach your bigger one!). As far as formatting, yuck! Those are the things that often send me over the edge.
