A Day in the Life of a Writer

Posted on

Hi, just an update on what I am doing. I have finished the re-edits on my second book in my series and started on the third re-edits. Soon I will have them all back up and will give a sale for buying all three at once. Woohoo, then on to finishing Will-0- the Wisp and fleshing out short story Window Pane into a novel whie trying to illustrate my five children stories. Then I need to find a way to publish them in hard back for around five dollars my cost so they won’t be over priced for families. Also still looking for a reader for my fantasy on ACX. No time for NaNo this year.
