Deadline: January

I have been hemming and hawing too long. It’s time to make a real dive into my writing career, to really give it a go and see if I have what it takes. So to that end I am setting myself a deadline of January. By then I will have my writings ready to go, covers designed, advertising plotted, and release strategy developed.

The tentative plan as of today is that each year I will release a trio of ebooks in the spring, and a trio in the fall. They will be shorter, novella length roughly, and will then be bundled together into a full length print book. Some will be chained novellas, others will be collections of short stories. In the summer, I will release at least one novel or novella, something not tied to the fall or spring releases.

I have a huge back log of work begging to see the light of day, enough to put out stuff for about the next three years under this schedule. And now it is time to finally pull the trigger on it. Wish me luck!

Thank You!!!

So as you may know, we’ve really been putting in some effort on trying to grow our podcast, Books, Beards, Booze. And thanks to all you great people, it is really starting to pay off!

For roughly our first year we averaged about 175ish downloads a month. Each episode was averaging maybe 15 listens, when you factored out each of us hosts listening lol. It was consistent, which was good, as it meant we weren’t really losing people. But we weren’t growing.

So we buckled down, improved our sound, and started promoting. Creative Consultant Tonya and I have been scouring the web, spreading the word, and trying to not be too annoying. And wonder of wonders, it’s starting to pay off!

This month we broke 600 downloads!!! 600!!! We more than trippled where we were at just two months ago! And it’s thanks to people like you, for helping to spread the word and supporting us!

We are so excited to see where we go from here, and have lots of rad stuff planned to bring forth. So cheers to you, our amazing fans, and thanks for coming along on the ride with us!
