I aim to publish six books this year starting November 1st, 2019.

So far I have Dragon Rider 6th Grade and Year of Poems 2019.

I definitely want to publish Dragon Rider 7th Grade and The Secret of Luna. I was supposed to publish The Secret of Luna late this month or early next.

That won’t happen. The Secret of Luna isn’t ready. I need to rewrite the entire thing. I just realized why I’ve been struggling with edits. I need more detail. Hopefully I can have it ready for August. It’s not that I don’t want to publish it, it’s more I don’t want to publish a crappy book.

There are enough crappy books out there. I can’t add to that list.

It’s not that I don’t want to publish it, it’s more I don’t want to publish a crappy book.

Dragon Rider 7th Grade is in edits. Final edits… maybe? I think three more rounds will be enough. If those aren’t enough, I should be rewriting. Some of the story may get another rewrite, but I think that phase is done. *fingers crossed*

The other two books I have a desire to publish this year are Dove and The Bet and Other Fiction Short Stories. Dove is getting a rewrite currently and it’s turning out fabulous. It needs to be shown to the public. The Bet and Other Fiction Short Stories contains the short story ebooks I currently have published and available: Spoon, Beautiful, and Dark Silence. It contains quite a few more. The only connection between them is it’s fiction. It’s not fantasy. These stories are possible in real life even if they never happened. Some leave me very happy they never happened.

There is a possibility I will create Poem a Day May 2020. That would be published during this year as well.

So for the year’s goal Nov 1, 2019 to Oct 31, 2020 for publishing, two are published: Dragon Rider 6th Grade and Year of Poems 2019. Two are definites: Dragon Rider 7th Grade and The Secret of Luna. Three are possibilities: Dove, Poem a Day May 2020, and The Bet and Other Fiction Short Stories.

Are there other options out there? Yes. Could I change my mind on some of these? Yes. I am half in a mind to put off Modern Werewolves completely. If you don’t want me to, speak up.

If you want anything from my Works in Progress options, speak up. There are a lot I’m at a part where just a few rounds of edits and it’ll be ready. Others are far from that option.
