Wednesday Today I found myself looking at my projects and my work, and I realized that I have gotten pretty far off the track of what I wanted to do, way off in the weeds of side projects and things that "are 99.99% certain to amount to nothing". I feel like I've been pretty turned … Continue reading WIP: As If Awakening
It was delayed by wonky internet service and a cat medical emergency that still isn't resolved, but the report on week 4 of my 10K challenge was sent to my mailing list this morning. In a nutshell, the results are not beautiful yet, but everything seems to be going in the right direction. That's good … Continue reading 10K Challenge Week 4 Report
Week 3 of my 10K Challenge is in the books. It was not pretty. On the heels of my cover crisis last week, I discovered this week that my exports to my website and my ebooks were no longer working. Digging deeper, I found the source to be changes the developers had made to my … Continue reading 10K Challenge Week 3
Week 2 of my 10K challenge is done. I'm currently working on the newsletter to recap the week. It wasn't great, but things are rolling. The cover crisis has really dumped a lot of work in my lap. I have an idea that I want to try, but I'm worried about being ridiculed (and not … Continue reading Week 2 Of Challenge Complete

Because I have a trio of secret projects that I expect to launch in the next few months, beginning right after Taxi Adventure is released. If these have the … Continue reading Secret Weapons
On the surface, the goal of selling 10,000 books might not be very laudable. After all, that would yield somewhere between $3,000 and $20,000 or so. Why should anyone care if I get that? If that was the point, I'd agree, but the point isn't the money, it's the momentum. What I really want is … Continue reading Who Wins
If I could sell 10,000 books in three months just because I wanted to, I'd have already done it. Many times. So what can I actually do now to bring about those results? Plenty. I think the success of my 10K challenge hinges on doing these six things every week: Writing 20,000 new words. Content … Continue reading How I’ll Do It
I have set for myself a challenge of selling 10,000 books this spring. For some people, that would not be a big deal. Some people sell that many books every week. I, however, do not (yet). Selling 10,000 books in 13 weeks will be a very big deal for me. So, is it possible? Of … Continue reading Is It Possible?
