Short story is finally done... And it's not very short. It's like 8000 words kinda' short. It's still in 2nd draft, so it may get whittled down more. Not sure what my next project will be. I'm guessing that I will need to create the outlines for the short stories connected to my series. I think I'm going to do that first before I work on the second novel. Once the outlines are done, I will then work on the 2nd draft for the second novel. As for the marketing efforts, I finally finished the draft for a blog post about my own copywork exercise routine. I'm also planning to do some critique on short stories as part of my outreach. I'll still give advice here and there, but critique should also be part of my efforts. I'm still in my infancy with regards to this self-pubbing business. As what the great Mitch Hedberg once said, "This is all part of my get-rich-slow scheme."
