Wait... Indie What?

So 2nd Wednesday was Indie Wednesday for ages, but I could swear I saw that wasn't happening anymore. Am I making stuff up?  I DO do that?

But because I might be, I am going to give it a brief shot ANYWAY...

I've decided solidly and completely that DONE RIGHT Indie is a hella lot more work than traditional. So there. I said it.

I don't mind hard work.
My trouble is hard work takes a LOT of TIME. And time I don't have.

That said, Book 9 is with my copyeditor. I made progress editing book 10, and I've decided I am then going to SPRINT the rest of 11 and all (read: most) of 12 before I go on my conference for work April 30.  Look at it as the delayed ending of March Madness when I had a lot of madness and no TIME.

Then while GONE, I will work on What Ales Me, which I have lots of revision notes for, and THEN, I have hopes life may get back to normal. Whatever that is.

What are you working on? Are you ahead or behind for the first 3rd of the year winding to a close?

Good luck with your sprint, Hart!

I was ahead, but now I'm getting closer to just on-target. The disruptions of spring!

Will number twelve be the last installment?
And yeah, Indie Life posts stopped a couple months ago.

SOOO behind. :) But it sounds like your pushing through!

I am always behind. It's like a perpetual motion machine. A perpetually behind motion machine.

Indie publishing is VERY tough, if you do it right, which you certainly have. Part of me is proud that I did it, but now I want to be coddled and assisted, and that means shopping my manuscript around to agents. As you know, I've got a toehold in the door now, and we'll see how that goes.

Fantastic success to you and your apocalyptic series, which I really want to get back to soon.
