Target Met!

I’m happy to say that I met my self-imposed target of completing the first full read-through of The Truths We Live by this weekend with ease. I actually completed the read-through on Thursday evening.

Fake Social Media in eBooks

If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that my current goal to do a full read through/edit of the first draft of The Truths We Live. As part of this one thing I’m doing is adding fake tweets and text messages to the manuscript. These will carry through into the eBook and while it will make the eBook file larger to do this, I hope it will add to the experience of reading it.

Setting Goals

I don’t deadlines when it comes to my writing—I get enough of deadlines at work, I don’t need them in an activity that’s supposed to be a hobby.
But I am happy to set goals. Goals aren’t deadlines. Deadlines get you in to trouble if you miss them. Goals… Not so much.

Facebook

Facebook is an odd platform, isn’t it? It’s a multi-billion-dollar company whose main income—indeed, I believe its only income—is advertising. And yet, when was the last time you can honestly say that you bought something, be it goods or services, because you saw an ad for it on Facebook?

More New Covers

Two more of my short stories that made their debut at Ruthie’s Club back in the day have also received new covers this month.

New Covers for the Ladz Girls

The Ladz Local Lovelies series of four short stories are dear to my heart for the simple reason that they represent the first stories I ever had published when they were picked up by Ruthie’s Club.

New “Kissed by a Rose” Teasers

The designing book “Teasers”—small graphics for sharing on social media that contain a short little snippet of the book’s text—is a fun distraction from all manner of life’s travails. And whenever I’m trying to get back into the ‘role’ of being Marc Nobbs, it’s one of the things that I turn to as an aide.

It’s Been a While…

My last post here on the blog was back in September when I announced the re-release date for Kissed by a Rose. Then after a good six months of being able to find the time to work at being Marc Nobbs, things changed. It’s been a hectic few months for me since October. Not as a writer, but as a living breathing person with a job and a family life.

Release Date Confirmed

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me. Work has picked up for one thing—which always makes it difficult to find the time to post to the blog. But putting that aside, I’ve been spending every spare moment I’ve had working on two things.

To-Do-List Update

I thought it might be worthwhile just posting a little update with where I’m at with the various projects I’m working on.
