Hats


I have the 27 goth volunteers I need to read The Scribbled Victims aloud on YouTube. I assigned chapters today. I'm hoping that I'll start posting them by early October. I'm very excited. I hope my participants enjoy the experience and hope that it will draw more attention to my book. I'm still on target to write 20,000 new words this month of the sequel. Things with my designer and the Orly photoshoot have stalled though. I'm also waiting to hear back from Gothic Beauty to see if they will review the book. These days authors must wear many hats.

Haters


I know of three people who hate my guts. I don't know if there are more who hate me but I have to assume there are more who don't like me. I figure most people don't think of me at all. Being on Sarahah has shown me there are many people critical of me. They criticize my dating life most and some have let me know I'm a poor writer. I think they get a lot of information from this blog which averages between 300 and 600 readers daily so it's difficult for me to know who my haters are.

27


Scribbling The Eternal passed 40,000 words today. That feels like such a milestone since it's halfway to novel length. But I do believe this book will be closer to 90,000 words. I talked to my web designer, we are going to make a lot of significant changes to my websites and even create a couple more. I also had an idea to have 27 goths each read one chapter aloud of The Scribbled Victims on video. 22 have already committed. They all seem so excited about it. I thought I was going to have to do a lot of begging.
