Across Time progress

Goal = 80-85K words (that's around 420 pages)
Current word count = 5k

Normally I'd be very happy at this point, but my progress is thanks for three short stories  that I'm struggling to add to the story. The prologue is a mixture of two of these short stories, changed a bit since this is going to be a novel. The  third story will be used for backstory for Amythist Dyier, my heroine.

In case you are interested, I have all my Amythist Dyier stories available on Kindle and Nook in an anthology called Amythist Dreams. You an purchase it on Smashwords HERE.

Tomorrow, Chapter One. I'll piece together the prologue later. :)

Forbidden Magic finished and beyond

FORBIDDEN MAGIC is finally finished. Final word count is a little over 21k. I've already done my read through and have submitted it for consideration to a publisher.

Which means I can finally start something new! I'm also changing my writing goal. When I first started writing, my goal was to get my work published. A fantastic goal, one many writers never reach. I've reached it, but only in the ebook market. I want more. To get more, I have to write more.

New Goal:
Write 80k or more per book
Submit to print markets

I want to walk into a bookstore and see my book on the shelf. So I will work harder. Which means that I will start outlining and preplanning my books. I tend to get carried away and the book is finished before I mean to and I suck at going back and adding stuff once it's done.

Today I will be researching methods to  help me with this new process of planning my books. Hopefully this will help me reach my new goals.

:)

As it stands, these are my current works in progress.

WIP:
DEMON SCORNED: Sarah Vargas 4
     *  I'm still outlining this. Writing about Sarah isn't coming easy this time. Maybe she doesn't want to fight demons?

ACROSS TIME
     * Story of Amythist and Dalamar. I've published several short stories about these characters. I'm looking forward to write a book to finish their story.

UNTITILED Beauty and the Beast
    * A twist to my favorite classic

UNTITLED Firestarter
     * Set in same world as my books
