Just uploaded her new release, Wanton at the Wine Festival
Getting her graphics ready to share the cover, description, and sneak peek on IG
Working on her Frisky Fridays Flash Fiction post
Getting her weekend posts ready for IG
I believe that’s plenty going on, not to mention trying to keep up with social media interactions! Plus, I cannot believe it’s already the third week of February … 2021. Is anyone still writing 2020? I wouldn’t blame you. It felt like the year that would never end.
I’ll be sharing the image and link to E. I. Q.’s new poem over on the Poetry page, as well. That way, even if you miss an update post, you’ll always know where to find them!
I’m working on adding comments. Okay … I’m deciding whether or not to add comments. There’s user data to think about, not to mention spam. I’m not sure it’s something I want to have to manage at this point, to be honest. What do you think? Pop on over to the Contact Page or Twitter and let me know.
Also … yes, I realize it’s already Wednesday. Actually, now it’s Thursday. I fully intend to post these updates on Mondays but the week just slipped out of my hands. That’s part of the challenge of being indie, of course. If you don’t get things done, they simply don’t get done.
She’s submitted a new flash fiction story for the Weekly Write #16 contest over at Secret Attic
Also, she wrote her first review on goodreads which you can check out by visiting her Author Profile until she finishes setting up the Reviews Page on her site
This girl is hard at work on Book 8 in Caliente Connections, “Brazen at the Boat Show,” which should be ready by Friday … just in time for Valentine’s Day!
As with every release, she’s busy preparing the content posts for social media: A cover release, a detail post, and a sneak peek post.
Currently, she’s working on this week’s Frisky Friday Flash Fiction post
She’s also supporting Indie Authors by adding some KU Romances to her TBR pile for the month. Like E. I. Q., she’ll also be reviewing them on her goodreads Author Profile, and setting up a Reviews Page on her site.
She’s also got a surprise in store for later this year … but she’ll write that up on her own in due time 😉
Second Week of February … Am I missing anything else?
Oh! What am I doing? Aside from updating this blog with everything authors are doing, I’m also working on a short piece about my experiences as a self-publisher. There is a lot to do beyond the actual creative writing process … which is why I’m also working hard to keep all the social media channels up to date, and networking as I try to build up the reviews for both authors.
I’ve actually got a rather ambitious project in mind here so bear with me. This site is now intended primarily for my imprint, Phoenix Fire Press, Ltd. Company.
When I started out, I didn’t expect to be publishing under various authors yet here I am. Does that require so much distinction? Perhaps not for everyone.
However, I believe in branding. I didn’t like the way my site was looking with content all over the place. Plus, I want each of my authors to really have their own place to shine while also allowing this Phoenix to rise on her own.
Thank you for following me on this journey! I hope to give you all something to talk about.
I’m adding an update here regarding the uploading of E. I. Q.’s short stories. In an effort to get herself to publish more, she’s decided to upload one new story per month. Or, well, to try to get that done. Once a new story is shared over at her site, the old one will be taken down. But, don’t worry! The old story will then be available via Kindle Unlimited! This month she added “The Drive.” At the end of the month, she’ll be removing “The Sunflowers” and, on February 1st, will be adding a new story. She’s tentatively calling it “Best Friends” because it is, so far, a very bare bones work in progress. Stay tuned, and catch the current stories will you can!
