I got a little sidetracked with thinking about some sticker designs I want to do, how I want to put the packages of printable stickers for sale, where I should put them on sale (ie my website, Etsy, etc), trying to figure out why my blog posts were going to the Navarone Twitter feed instead of my own, wondering how many of my books I can get written before the end of April, trying to decide if I should write this weekend.
There's so many things that can pull my mind away from my book. When that happens, I realize that I may as well take a little break from it for the day because if my writing is allowing MY mind to wander, then it probably won't be very interesting for my readers. Speaking of which, I know that book 5 in the DOTM series was a little boring and I apologize for that. In fact, I've decided that when I'm finished book 9, I'm going to go back and rewrite sections of book 5. Not in such a way that the story is changed because I want it to continue to be carried on in book 6 and onward, without having to rewrite each book after book 5, but do it in such a way that there's more interesting and powerful things in the story, that can be wrapped up within the story and not need to carry over afterwards, OR add stuff that led to things that happened in later books.
For anyone that already bought book 5, Kindle automatically updates the new edition for you and then notifies you that there has been an update to the book. So, I'm quite excited about that!!
Meanwhile, another exciting thing: All of the DOTM books are going to be out in print by the summer. The early ones will be getting new covers, or maybe all of them will, I'm not sure. So, I'm really excited about that!! It will be nice to have the entire collection on my bookshelf.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!! I'll write again on Monday, I promise!
