Hello, dear readers! Another month has passed since I last shared an update on my blog, so here comes another quick update about what’s been going on in the month of August with my writing and my blog relaunch. Progress has been slower than expected, but I’m still excited to share what I’ve been working on!
So to keep you up to date, here are some updates on my writing endeavors in August!
Updates on my Books
As I mentioned before, I’ve already finished self-editing my three dragon stories, but I’m still figuring out how to format my book. As much as I love Scrivener for writing and editing manuscripts, compiling those manuscripts into properly formatted ebook files can be a real challenge! Hopefully I’ll figure it out soon!
I’m also still waiting on updates from my book cover designer, so I have nothing new to report there. Don’t worry, though; I will definitely share a sneak peek of the cover when it’s ready!
On the side, I’ve still been editing my 100k-word fantasy novel every day and working on my new short story trilogy in some of my spare time, though most of my writing time this month has been dedicated to finishing the current book of dragon stories. I can’t wait to finally publish it!
Updates on my Blog Relaunch and Rebranding Campaign
Again, because I’ve been focusing on my books this month, I haven’t had much time to spare for my blog relaunch plans. I have been researching hosting and site migration, though, but in all honesty, it seems I grossly underestimated the time it would take me to migrate my site to a new host and prepare my new blog for a relaunch. In short, don’t be surprised if it really does end up being another year away (but fingers crossed that it doesn’t)!
Because it’s been incredibly difficult to manage both my self-publishing experiment and my blog relaunch campaign on top of my full-time freelance editing work, I think it will be best for me to focus on only the former until it’s done. Therefore, I probably won’t have much to share next month regarding blog updates. On the plus side, I have been learning more about how to run an author blog, so expect plenty of awesome new content when my new site is finally ready!
Reminder: Guest Posts Still Wanted!
