Weekly word count: 3200
Not quite to my 4000 word total for the week, but I think it's a good start. With the kids back at school, I have a few hours each weekday to write (assuming I don't find it crowded out by my day job and errands and appointments). I ended up with two writing days this week, but I had good productivity for both of them, so I'm relatively pleased.
I've been thinking a little more about my promotion strategy over the next year. I need to be careful in terms of both time and money but I've got some good ideas. I'm going to talk with Xpresso Book Tours about doing a one day Cover Reveal. They did a blog tour for me back in February when Revelations was released and that garnered me a lot of attention and some great reviews with the bloggers. I chose not to do a Cover Reveal Tour last time since I was worried I'd lose any buzz I'd generated by the time the book actually came out.
I'm also thinking about doing another blog tour with them once Metamorphosis is out but also speak to some other blog tour operators about connecting with a different audience.
I need to keep reminding myself to think marathon, not sprint. I have the time to think smart and carefully about what I want to do.
