Short Stories, Discoverability, and More

This was the post I had planned to make last week, and ended up putting up the kitten video instead. If you haven’t seen the video, click here. In sixty seconds, it’ll teach you how to edit an anthology. Seriously. Honestly. Really. Go look. Now, here’s some of what I planned to tell you. The […]

Best Laid Plans…And Kittens

I reserved time in my schedule today to update you on four stories of mine that’ll appear in September…but you know what? I got contributors copies already (yay!) but the books/magazines aren’t out yet. So next week on that. Later this weekend (I hope), I’ll update the Retrieval Artist, which always takes a bit more time. […]

Retrieval Artist Update #6

The books are moving through the system. Vigilantes has come back from the content editor yesterday. I have a bit of work to do to rearrange that one, which is not a surprise. The Peyti Crisis just went to the copy editor. And I’m nearly done with Starbase Human, although that book is turning out much longer than […]

Retrieval Artist Update #5

Here we go again. Another Retrieval Artist novel finished. I’ve just turned Vigilantes over to Dean, who is my first reader. I’ve finished four novels in less than two months. Sounds impressive, right? But it’s not that impressive. It would be more accurate to say that I’ve assembled four novels in less than two months. I’ve been […]

A Pleasant Surprise (I Hope)

I’m buried so deep in this Retrieval Artist saga that my brain currently resides on the Moon. Those of you who read the Retrieval Artist know what I mean. The rest of you are probably aware that I’m writing something huge, but you haven’t read any Retrieval Artist stuff, so you’re feeling a bit… Well, […]

Retrieval Artist Update #4

Click, click, click, click. The sounds you hear are the pieces falling into place. One week after I gave Dean (who is my first reader) Search & Recovery, I gave him The Peyti Crisis, the next book in the Anniversary Day Saga. If he likes it, it’ll go to the content editor. I didn’t write […]

Retrieval Artist Update #3

In April, I went over A Murder of Clones, and fixed the ending. Then I started what I was calling RA 11. I finished it yesterday. The book is now titled Search & Recovery. Today I go over the book I initially thought would come next—The Peyti Crisis

Stories, stories, and more stories (plus a reminder)

I’ve gotten so wrapped up in the Retrieval Artist–and yes, there will be an update soon–that I’ve forgotten to share the new stuff with you. Lots of fun and different things to share. First, let me apologize for the changing colors in the post. My theme is melting, literally. We’re hurrying on the new design […]

The Business Rusch: How To Measure Success (Discoverability Part The Last)

Even though I posted a business blog on Tuesday, I couldn’t let a Thursday go by without a blog post. Especially since this week marks the fifth anniversary of the Business Rusch (and the business blog that came before it, The Freelancer’s Survival Guide). Yep, I’ve hit every single Thursday for five years, without a […]

The Business Rusch: Publicity Campaigns (Discoverability Part 14)

As I started this post on a Monday night over two weeks ago, my Kris DeLake novel, A Spy To Die For, ranked #1 on two Amazon bestseller lists. Both are subgenre lists: 1. Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Science Fiction 2. Books > Romance > Science Fiction And #6 in another: […]
