October 2020 Progress Report

Things have been hectic over on my end for months. I have been trying to build up my writing stamina to increase the amount I put out each month. I’ve been neglecting my blog and find that it is time I try to start posting again.

What has been happening:

First off, the boys started pre-school, so that means I get seven hours of free time. I’ve been using that time to write and do things around my apartment. I’ve even joined a gym to try to get myself healthy. I hurt my back the other week so I was unable to go, but lucky it didn’t stop me from writing.

If you are a member of my street team you know about my writing goals and accomplishments, because I share them with you as I complete them. The month before last, I decided to set my goal for 10k and managed to make it. I was so proud. That I decided to try for 15k in September. I was 2k shy of my goal but that is okay. This month I decreased my goal down to 10k because I have to outline and get “The Seeker’s Core” ready for NaNo, next month. I’m supper excited for this project.

What have I been writing?

I’ve been hard at work pushing through the chapters of “Gargoyle Sighted”. I managed to get far enough ahead I don’t have to worry about falling behind. In September I switched my focus over to the, Tales of Tarza series. I managed to write the first story within a month period. It was a total of 21k. I am still doing edits on it and plan to have that sent off to Allison to edit by the end of October. As for October I plan to switch back to “Gargoyle Sighted” for my writing. When I’m not doing that I will be working on the content for “The Seeker’s Core.”

I’m supper excited to start this new book. I’ve got the outline done just have to get it into my dabble writer software. Been kind of tricky because I am still learning how to use dabble’s plot grid. It was a learning process that turned into two hours of work the other night.

Big News!!!!

October is my birthday month. I am thinking about doing a sale on “Tales of Ferrês” or another giveaway. I will let you all know as my birthday draws near.

I hope everyone has been having a good show of things over the last few months. Please forgive me for going a-wall on all of you. I promise to update this blog more in the future. Hope you have a spectacular October with plenty of candy and spooky stories.

Progress Report: Life Gone Crazy

Life has gotten away from me since my last progress report. I’m still hard at work putting the final touches on my Tales of Ferrês Bundle Book. Right now I am working on the bonus story edits. I have come to realize that one of my characters comes off as a really big bully. This means I have to soften the big bad wolf up and hope he doesn’t loose any of his personality through the changes. I would tell you who it is but there would be know fun in that. You will have to read the story yourself to see who it is that tends to be a pain in the neck to write. Speaking of reading…Tales of Ferrês is on Pre-Order at your favorite retailer for the discounted price of $1.99…If you haven’t pre-ordered this book yet you can HERE.BookBrushImage-2020-1-25-12-4933

What are my plans from now on? Well my plans are to finish up the Tales of Ferrês this month and put the final touches on it for its May release. Then I will focus on writing Gargoyle Sighted for my subscribers. I’m hoping to have it almost done by May with the limited time I have to write I might not be able to finish it by the end of May like I wanted. After that I plan to write the next stories in my Tales of Tarza short story series. I already have ones story pretty much written just have to finish it. Then I will work on the other eight. Yeah this next series won’t be as long as Tales of Ferrês. But if I do it right it won’t take me that long to release the stories to the public. I do plan to have them written in advice before I start releasing the stories. I’m hoping to start releasing these stories this fall of 2020. Not sure if I will make my August deadline like I want but it varies by how my writing time increases and decreases.

My goals for this month…

  1. Finish edits on Bonus Story
  2. Finish edits on The Assassin’s Prophecy, The Wrath of SnowFire and A Father’s Protection
  3. Write the next chapter in Gargoyle Sighted.
  4. See how far I can get in Gargoyle Sighted before the end of the month.

This month is trying already and I’m hoping to make headway through things. Wish me luck and I hope everyone stays safe and healthy through these trying times.

Progress Report: March 2020

Wow it has been awhile since I updated my blog. Let alone kept you guys and gals up to date on my writing. I plan to start doing bi-weekly reports again titled: Progress Reports. It has been so long I don’t even know what you have been updated on recently. So, I will just give you the latest.

This weekend I’m releasing the final installment in my Tales of Ferrês series, if you haven’t pre-order your copy yet you can HERE. It has been a long time coming. I swear I was starting to wonder if I would ever finish this series. But, it isn’t done yet. In May I will release the bundle book featuring all the stories along with a bonus story. The bundle book will have rewrites of several of the stories and I have it geared towards the YA audience. Once I release the bundle book then I will finally be done with this road and ready to start another path. I do have Tales of Ferrês bundle book up for pre-order, you can grab your copy HERE.BookBrushImage-2020-1-25-12-4933

I probably will work on the next two chapters throughout this month. I’ll keep you updated on that front. But if you want to read this book as I write it SIGN-UP HERE. You will also get a free short story.JENKINS_2019_VORTEX_NEWSLETTER
