Week 33: Bimonthly Goals and Pre-Release hype!

It’s that time again!

Hello Readers and Writers,

If there’s anything I’ve been able to stay consistent with, it’s keeping up with my bimonthly goals. Journalling has become a part of my everyday schedule and I can’t live without my little book. I’m really looking forward to September and October because fall is my favorite season and it will mark my first whole year of blogging. Even if I didn’t manage to blog every week, I still feel pretty accomplished.

 July-August Goals!

July

  1. Buy ISBNs (Check!)
  2. Get a proofreader for FH (Check!) I got the lovely Kimberly Carter www.carter-editing.com to proofread for me. She was very fast and gave my book baby the oomph it needed!
  3. Finalize interior format for paperback and ebook (Check!) this is a pain in the butt! but I managed to do it with lots of research, stress, and looking at other traditionally published books to mimic them as much as possible and FH looks gorgeous!
  4. order proof copies (Check!) I’ve gotten two proof copies so far and as you know, I cried when I got the first one.
  5. Draw 6 promo portraits (Check!) Working on the sixth it will be done later today

August

  1. Bree Barton’s DC book signing (Check!) big fat awesome day!
  2. Begin ARC reviewer scheme (Fail!) this is the only fail of this whole two months so I feel really good about it.
  3. Get release date (Check!) NOVEMBER 6!!!!
  4. Gather marketing matierials (Check!) I’ve been working tirelessly to create marketing images, portraits, bookmarks, business cards, and other fun goodies for upcoming giveaways!
  5. One more proof (Check!) Ordered, coming tomorrow, this should be the final check!
