It’s the end of a quarter, so it’s time to assess how I’m doing on the goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year.
The first goal was to finish Falling for the Deputy, which is now done and released. You can get a copy here. Next up was completing the third book in the Market Center Mysteries series, Playing at Murder. I’m happy to report the first draft of Playing at Murder is done, and I’m deep into the revision process. That should be finished by the end of July. It then goes to my editor and a couple of beta readers. I’m aiming for a fall release. I’ve also started the preparatory brain work for the first novel in a potential new series. With any luck, I’ll start actual writing on it some time in August.
I’ve made less progress with the five short story goal. So far I’ve started two, but haven’t finished either. I’m not giving up yet.
I’ve also looked into doing audiobooks, but have not yet found the right narrator for the stories I want to start with. The search continues.
On the personal stuff, after a break for vacations and family visits, I’ve resumed the photo scan project. Having that done by Christmas looks reasonable. Likewise, I’m resuming the attempts to get rid of stuff after the recent break. Still lots to do.
