Week In Review: It's Madness

Friday, August 10, 2018

I'm sleep-deprived and writing this a little bit ahead of schedule because I'm tired of writing quick, thoughtless posts at about 10 PM on Saturdays, so hang on! 
(So tired, in fact, that I just spent several minutes Googling vague terms for the gif I'm about to use, only to realize after I'd found it that I'd actually saved this puppy on my computer a few days ago...)

This week, I transferred all of my files from CreateSpace to KDP after reading this article and whew, let me tell you: something glitched up with Beautiful Chaos and the file became corrupt and needed removed.  Thankfully, I did have the file -- but it was on my other computer (which magically began having issues...again....after I thought I had it fixed).  The compter runs, but not very fast.  At all...and when you're uploading a file that's about 460 pages and doing it repeatedly because KDP didn't want to play nice....?  Mayhem.  Admittedly, the other books I transferred worked fine, but obviously, the biggest one had to be the biggest pain!

And then they decided that the cover, which worked fine on CreateSpace, was too small.

Anyway.  It's fixed now, so all of my books are once more available for purchase on Amazon, only under a different printer.  No difference for you guys!  I'd also recommend reading that article I linked to if you're self-published.  

Currently Reading: This week, I finished Leia (review here) and gave up on Fawkes (reason here).  I just started Mother Knows Best by Serena Valentino.  I do highly recommend Leia by Claudia Gray if you're a Star Wars fan.  I know it isn't the old canon, but it's a great story and was very gripping, pretty much through the entire book.  

Current Projects: Something New: I only have about four more chapters to go!  So exciting!  Then come edits and I should be ready to go for publication...say October/November-ish?  That's my goal, anyway. And I have a super-secret plot written down for a book I want to work on as soon as my draft for Something New is done.  It's a book about Rapunzel and the gang from Tangled as well as Rapunzel's Tangled Adventures and I seriously plan to get published by Disney with it, guys.  That's my new dream that I've been praying on.  (I'm actually a lot more nervous and excited about the idea of approaching agents and getting rejected a ton, but I'm trying to act cool about it, 'kay?)
