…that dang, you have been working.
One of the things that happened today was work on a couple of press releases, one for a book reading/signing/informal Q and A about self-publishing at JaxDogCafe in LaGrande in December, and the other for a three-hour self-publishing workshop I’m doing with Fishtrap in February. I decided that perhaps for the bio I should mention how many anthologies I’ve been in, how many books I’ve published, and how many short stories I’ve published (some of which are anthology repeats).
The numbers startled me.
Twelve books. Doesn’t count the one I pulled from eTreasures publishing.
At least twelve anthologies (I think I missed a couple that aren’t on Amazon).
And at least twenty self-published short stories…many of which are either series world-building stories or anthology reprints. That doesn’t count the ones that I’ve published in various magazines–so add at least ten-twelve more that don’t show up in my Amazon page.
Um. Okay. Wow. Does this mean I’m at the point of accumulating a sufficiently significant body of work that I might someday become an…overnight success? Dare I hope?
We shall see.
Meanwhile, even though I’m not officially doing Nanowrimo, I’ve been productive. As in I’ve blocked out a full story, written an essay, written a story, and am getting ready to write that blocked-out story (and wrote a story in October). I think I’ll be starting Beating the Apocalypse in December…somehow I just couldn’t do it in the heat of summer.
I think things are getting back on track writing-wise. Yay.
