Update to This Morning’s Post

Just a quick update. Like I said this morning, the writer’s brain is back. To be honest, it has been for a couple of weeks. I’ve just been keeping my head down low while I get some work done. Today was the day I do what I hate the most: all the administrative BS that comes with being a writer (or owning your own business). Hence the update.

I basically mirrored this morning’s post on my Substack account. That was step number one to getting back to the real work of being a writer. In case you haven’t had a chance to read that post, I did add a little new info I hadn’t included on the blog. Long story short, I was going to come up with a schedule for posting snippets from Battleborn over the next few days and probably start those posts next week. I was also going to finish setting up the monetization of the Substack site.

Well, that’s been done. Starting next week and going for the next month, I will be posting snippets twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays. Because next week is going to be busy with appointments for my mother (3 doctors appointments on 3 different days), I’ve already scheduled those posts. When I finish with this update, I’m going to schedule the next two posts as well. That will give me a two week cushion on the snippets and a little breathing room in case something unexpected comes up (No, Murphy, this is not an invitation for you to come visit!)

I also finished setting up the interface between Substack and Stripe so donations, pledges, etc., could be processed. Thanks to those who have already pledged and thanks to my favorite book dragon (waves at Paul) for already making a donation. You guys are awesome.

What else? Just a reminder that the snippets are going to be basically as Myrtle the Evil Muse dictates them. Also, I’m going to be updating the subscriber benefits over the next couple of days. Basically, those who subscribe yearly will get a free digital copy of up to all new novels I publish during the year (they must be a subscriber at the time the novel is published). Those who sign on as a Founding Member, will get all the new e-books published during the year as well as their choice of one signed print version of one of the new titles. (at least this is what I’m leaning toward right now. What do you guys think?)

So that’s been my day so far. Hope you are all having a great day. I think I’m going to go sit on my back porch and enjoy the sunny, warm weather right now.

Until later!
