New month and the brown bar is back


Last month was awesome.  I broke my best record of sales.  A total (so far as I know) of 32 copies of my work went to readers who wanted to read my stuff.  This made me happy.  With that and the handful of reviews I received makes March one of the best months so far in my writing career.  While I did not finish up as much as I thought I would I did put out new titles for the readers to enjoy.

In fact I used a new platform to post them.  A place called draft2digital.  Stuff went in pretty easy and amazingly enough one of the titles sold three copies right away.  Now it just might be because it was erotica and had the torso of a sexy woman in a corset on the cover but who is complaining?  I mean any sale is a good sale.

My series are starting to fill out nicely.  I have a number of titles out now.  Each series of short stories has between 3 and 6 titles a piece, which is good.  As I complete more I am moving quickly to the amount of pages I want for the paperback collections.  Okay for the collections period.  It will be fun to see how they do.

On the writing front Harry took over my mind from Traveler.  At first Sudden Disappearances flowed easily but it got stuck over the holiday weekend.  Okay between cooking and having kids in and out of the house and other distractions I really did not get a lot done.  But I made up for it today.   The story is up over 6K in words right now and I have some nice twists working there way into the story.  I did have to dig back into A Watery Grave for some info and flip back to another work in progress.  That work is Lady of the Merrimack.  Now that is a side story based in the same city as Guardian but from a different character.  As I have said in other blogs in the past I have a whole set of other stories that will be set in the same city.  Seven to be exact.  Each of them are in various stages of writing from a few pages to over 30 pages of story.  They will weave in and around the main Harry stories to make the world richer.

Slowly word is getting out about me.  I was just added to a book listing over on a facebook page  http://www.amazon.com/review/RQW0ENBT3U9HF/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm? you can see it there.  Rather nice of them.  Facebook as proven a good place for me to put up links to my work and to discuss writing.  Heck I have been printed in two collections from Facebook and I have been requested to be in three others, so a good place for me.

Amazon has been good too obviously.  Though I am confused.  I have a review I picked up on the UK site that has not as of yet processed over to the US site.  Night and Day got a nice solid four star review and it would be nice if it would show up in the US.  One of my odder little tales, it was the first one I wrote in first person.  I happen to like that tale and who knows someday there might be more of them.  You never know right?

Heck when I get the rights back to the tales in my first collection, Gates, I plan on putting Last Moonset and The Companions tale out as part of a new series.  They are of course tales that go together.  The other tales in the collection could probably work in Beyond Realities or Worlds Apart but I would have to think about it.

Heck I have the beginnings of a sequel to Descents.  Now that will be fun.  My take on horror is not the modern lets fill it with blood take.  So we can see where that will go when I get to it right?  Some of the stories like Seven Moons should go with Knight Protector.  Very paranormal romance without the usual paranormal take on things.  I just might change Knight Protector into the first book of a series of my more romantic tales…okay now I have myself thinking of more series!  I am going to drive you poor readers nuts this way if I keep it up.
