Writing Update: Word Counts, Submissions, and What's Coming Up

Last month word count: 20,661
Total for the year so far: 146,204
Books Completed: 4

So, I'm doing okay with my word count this year so far. I'm not near my goal of 365- 1k a day, but I still have August-December to see what I can come up with. Last month I completed Waking Jenny, the sequel to Sleeping Jenny and submitted it to Spencer Hill Press. Hopefully they'll like it! My agent is getting ready to query my new adult sci fi, Earth: Population 2 to publishers. 

This month I'm working on the sequel to Minstrel's Serenade, currently called Orphan's Blade for Lyrical Press/Kensington. It's coming out wonderfully, and I love writing fantasy more than anything, so it's a month of pure writing bliss! 

Sales have slowed down across the board after the initial skyrocket of the book bub add for Paradise 21. I've been coming up with clever Twitter entries to drum up interest such as:

Pan: the untold story

Hi, Aubrey, you certainly have a lot going on. I would be happy to do a post when your book launches. How about an interview? Email me at kitsy84557 (AT) gmail (DOT) com. I'm a fellow Inkspeller author, too.

Hi girly, just sent you an email. I'd love to have you as a guest over at Footsteps of a Writer. You're always welcome there. I find your progress and success motivating. Wishing you all the best.

Good luck with everything! You still have many more words than I have this year. I've been so slow.
