Up Next

Just wanted to get some input! With Javi's Cafe ending in December (and already written) and The Christian Musician published, I'm trying to decide what to do next. I'd like to keep doing eBooks, but am not sure what to do next: compilation of short stories? Javi? Love Victorious? Should I first focus on trying to find a bigger audience for TCM?
Either way, any self-marketing ideas for TCM? I tried a giveaway hoping to get people to review or share about it, but it hasn't really worked. It ends tomorrow if you're interested.

I'm also not sure what I'd post next on AP. I don't really have ideas for anything new, so could just post excerpts or dig things out of the archives, or I could come up with another challenge/experiment like Javi's Cafe was.

Thoughts? Opinions?

You have alot of good short stories that you could try to publish in online magazines or blogs.
You should tell me about how TCM is doing...maybe try publicizing it more on blogs especially Homeschool Authors.

PS You also seem to be able to consistently blog post. You could try to see if there are any blogs (including ones about living a holy life) that you could write on a regular basis.

Thank you, Megan! I have a growing list of places to write about TCM and just put homeschool authors on that list, but it will have to wait till I'm in Japan.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

So, I've decided that since I probably won't have time to tackle longer books again for a long time, that I'm going to go ahead and work on Love Victorious. It needs some major edits, so if anyone has time/interest and wants to go back and read all or parts of it before I take it down, please do and give me some feedback.

I will also be looking for places to submit some of my short stories/sketches like "The Prince's Bride" and "Jack." If you know of any places please please let me know!

As far as AP, I'll probably post excerpts as I edit and shorter things as I have time/inspiration to write.
