What Am I Working On?

In short: not my blog LOL!

Nah, just kidding. I did put aside weekly blog posts some months back, but that was a strategic decision. Sometimes I need to shake-up how I work to keep myself productive, and reducing my blog post frequency was part of that most recent shake-up. But that doesn’t mean I’m abandoning the blog entirely–not at all!  In fact, you’ll probably start seeing regular “What Am I Working On?” posts quarterly. See, I’ve started this new work management system I learned at the RWA National writer’s conference in July and it’s fantastic! Part of it involves focusing on 2-3 goals one quarter at a time, then reviewing my progress at the end of the quarter. So I’m going to post here each quarter with a quick rundown of what I’m focusing on.

Okay, where to start.

I completed a major revision in May of the first book in my latest project (it’s a 3.5-book series I’m currently calling The Cloaked Series.) The revision was requested by an agent I submitted to and really admire, so it was very exciting. I’ve sent that off and am now awaiting responses from that agent and one other.

Meanwhile, I attended the RWA National conference in July, as I mentioned above, and it was AMAZING! I met so many awesome writers, learned a TON, and brought back more free romance novels than I’ll likely be able to read this year (but I’m sure as heck gonna try!)

This quarter (well, August and September–I’m doing a short quarter so I can get on track with Q4) I’m focusing on sending out all of the material that agents and editors requested from me at the conference, reinvigorating my social media mojo so I can continue to meaningfully connect with more readers, and getting SHIFT and RECAST ready for re-release.

WHAAA?

Yep, that’s right. I will be re-releasing new editions of all 4 books in the Shift Series (SHIFT, RECAST, DRIFT, and STAND) at the end of this year! Newly edited, with new covers, links to new exclusive content, and more. I’ll definitely be posting more about it, so stay tuned in the coming months.

So those are my focuses for Q3. In the spirit of reinvigorating my social media presence,  here are links to find me across the interwebs (including my new Facebook Group, Elle’s Belles!)

New Facebook Group! (Join Us!)

Hi faithful readers!

I just launched a new group on Facebook called “Elle’s Belles.” It’s a place where we can all talk and geek-out about our fave fantasy beings: vampires, shapeshifters, psychics, ghosts–anything!  It’s brand new, and just getting off the ground, but I think we’re going to have a lot of fun!  Join us!

I’ll continue to post here on the blog, but will be doing so a little less often than I used to in the comings months. I’ll reserve blog posts mainly for announcements and the occasional random musing. It’s not that I don’t love my blog (I do!) but time is a finite resource and I want to give Elle’s Belles the attention it deserves–at least until it takes off! Of course, I’ll still be on  Twitter. And, if you’re on Goodreads, you can always find me there too!  Can’t wait to see you on Facebook!
