8:54 AM

Late start today. Have:

  • Been in a panic over the music video and have been considering another hundred or so takes to see if I could get one I liked better (counterproductive, and I’m out of time)
  • Been setting up the Cadence Drake website, and realizing that I haven’t put together the cool promo newsletter I’ve had months to work on
  • Have been designing a new header, layout, and THEME for the HTCB site, because the other theme broke the damn video
  • Have been, in other words, been in the final stages of a bad, bad case of “the book goes live next week.”

So. My list of Done-Still To Do looks like this today.

  1. Proof and correct print version of manuscript (Pages). DONE
  2. Upload final print version of HTCB. (CreateSpace) DONE
  3. Finish print cover layout. (Fireworks) DONE
  4. Transfer corrections to epub versions. (Pages, Scrivener)HALFWAY DONE (Will Finish Today)
  5. Transfer and adapt high-res print cover to low-res epub cover. (Fireworks) DONE
  6. Redo solo vocal track for Didn’t Expect That—the Corrigan’s Blood song. (GarageBand, Fission) DONE
  7. Write the cover copy for HTCB. (Pages) DONE
  8. Set up the sales pages for my site, Amazon, B&N, Apple, and possibly Kobo (Kobo is not impressing me) (Dreamweaver, Fireworks, WordPress.)
  9. Put together the HTCB music video, and get it on YouTube. (Fireworks, Keynote, Photo-to-Movie) DONE
  10. Print out my stripped-down list of HTRYN Worksheets so I’ll be ready to go on the revision next week.
  11. NEW ITEM Find a better template for the Cadence Drake site and redo the whole thing before my little book launch. DONE
  12. NEW ITEM Write the cool newsletter promo entries, teasers, and other spiffy stuff that should have been done months…or AT LEAST weeks…ago.
  13. NEW ITEM Dur… Publish the books. (Not the thing you want to forget on your list.)
  14. NEW ITEM Set up the HTCB Coupon for early-bird readers who buy from my site. (This is going to be ONLY for folks who are on the Cadence Drake list.)

So here’s where I am today.

#4-Transfer corrections to e-pub versions.
#8-Set up the sales pages for my site, Amazon, B&N, Apple, and possibly Kobo (Kobo is not impressing me).
#12-Write the cool newsletter promo entries, teasers, and other spiffy stuff that should have been done months…or AT LEAST weeks…ago.
#14-Set up the HTCB Coupon for early-bird readers who buy from my site. (This is going to be ONLY for folks who are on the Cadence Drake list.)

    When you get a chance – go check your information on the B&N site. They have duplicated the blurb on the book page. Nothing big, don’t think it looks as professional as you might want.

    another Holly, this one in Germany

  2. Hi Holly and folks!

    I’ve been off the radar for a while with my big move between countries and all the fallout from the complete change of lifestyle and employment, family dramas, medical dramas, new relationships, all sorts of things.

    But I’m back on the horse, I’m still on Lesson 7 of HTRYN but I’m looking at 20 or more 7Aa and 7Ab sheets, so there’s definitely been progress.

    I’ve also started a new ‘short’ story set in the ancient history of my big series’ world – I have an ambitious plan to flesh out the world by creating a timeline of important historical events and cherrypicking the most exciting and interesting events as their own tales. I’m hugely excited about this one, and I’ve got 10,068 words on it already.

    I’ve paused it to continue my HTRYN work, but I am writing again, and it’s a damn good feeling to be back :)
