2018 3rd Quarter Results, 4th Quarter Goals


Unfortunately, with Grandma Dog’s medical needs running $400-500/mth and finances being tight, I had to cancel my upcoming Texas Book Festival appearance 🙁   I’m really disappointed, but just couldn’t afford the initial outlay of cash or taking the gamble on whether my books would sell in person or not.  Beyond that, I meat almost all of my goals this month, as well as designed a cover for Broken Wing and finished my first past revision of it.  Thanks to some very generous folks, I was able to get beta feedback so now I’m working on making it even better before prepping it for release.  

This quarter’s goals are scant because I’m low on funds and ideas.

How Did I Do on the Second Quarter Goals?

  1. Release At Week’s End!
  2. Get photos taken and create new author image(s)
