What I've Read (So Far) in 2018
I've gotten quite a few ebooks for my birthday last year and over the holidays, and I'm reading what I've bought. Here's what I've finished up to now (mid-March):
(links are to the pages on Goodreads, where you can see my ratings)
The Woman Who Rides Like A Man
Searching for Dragons
Calling on Dragons
Talking to Dragons
The Caledonian Gambit
I still have a number of books to read. I'll try to put up another post when I've read through them (hopefully in a few months). To see everything else I've read, check out my profile at Goodreads. If you aren't following me there, please do, or send a friend request.
Tales of the Defender 7
The next volume in the Tales of the Defender print series is now out:
Allan began life poor, and knowing that magic was the stuff of ancient legends. One day he discovers that the magic never went away, and that he has the gift of using magic.
He decides to fight injustice as The Defender, and fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. His wife Nancy joins him as The Moon Spirit. Although she can’t cast spells, she can fight and use the enchanted equipment Allan crafts.
This volume contains the Defender stories 31 to 35. The Defenders have power and influence, which brings more mysteries. Their adventures have even inspired one young lady to join their battle against injustice!
The book is now on sale. Check the Defender page for the link. More works in the series will be coming in the next two months!
Writing Stats for February 2018
Here's the next post about how much I'm writing this year.
Earlier this month I diverted away from the sci-fi book I was working on. I said at the time that I was going to "tinker" with an old project. I finished "tinkering" at the end of the month, and turned it from a 44,000-word short novel into a 77,000 proper novel.
I did lose some time to errands and such, but overall February felt pretty good. I wrote 177 pages in the month. That's just one page over what I would have written had I met my session goals.
Also in February I took care of the proof for the next print book in the Defender series. I'll be dealing with another proof in March. That means one more print book will come out this month, then a print book and an ebook next month.
After a break I'm going to finish up that sci-fi book I hit "pause" on. We'll see if I'm still working on it this time next month. Here's hoping for more good numbers!
