Hi Guys, Wallace here and Day Three has come and gone. Here’s where we stand right now:
The Three Safeties: #11,991
The Amazon numbers appear to be stabilizing at this point, but I feel good about them because the promotion has generated interest and that’s the whole point of this exercise. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking during this period and to me, putting out the stories was never about getting paid or receiving accolades. It’s about entertaining you guys and the more people who know about me, the better.
To me, this is a milestone because it bears out the results of my work over the past few decades and I’ve always digged the idea of doing my own thing and being my own boss.
Time to slip in a few somewhat related items:
1) Parallax: Work on Parallax is continuing. I’ve fixed the small plot glitch I ran into with Chapter 14 and am almost caught up with the beginning of Chapter 15. The word count is at 53,500 and climbing fast toward the target word count of 87500. I’m anticipating being (FINALLY! Hehe) ready for editor and cover designer by July 7 at the latest.
2) Indiegogo Campaign: The crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to pay for a professional editor and cover designer is still churning up interest. I have faith that my efforts in this regard will bear fruit, but whatever the outc ome, I’ll have the resources to get the job done.
3) Commitment: It took a while, but I’ve finally committed myself to my genre of choice, which is Sci-Fi/Adventure. Those are the kind of stories I love to tell and I think it’s best for me to specialize at this stage of the game. As good a writer as I may think I am, I don’t want to stretch myself too thin.
Anyway, that’s the highlights of Day Three. Thanks for your time and Ever Forward. 🙂
