ROW80 Toby Neal

ROW 80 2015 Round 1 in review

Published by:

Fireweed TrailSo, here we are at the end of the first quarter of 2015 already and I have results unlike any quarter I’ve had in a while. It’s been a pretty interesting 80 days, so it’s time to look back before moving ahead.

Here were my goals:

1) Finish off Ripe, the final installment of my Spoiled Rotten trilogy. DONE!

Yup! I finished that one off and it’s done. Nice to have that in my rear view at last.

2) Collect the Spoiled Rotten trilogy together and submit to Write On for feedback. DONE!

I received over 4,200 words of critique from my fellow authors at Write On on Spoiled Rotten that will inform a final polish and revision on this one; I’m repackaging it as a full-length novel with an all-new cover by my cover guru, Victorine E. Lieske!

It’ll probably debut in the second quarter of 2015.

3) Write a KW short for my friend’s set-to-launch-in-April KindleWorld.

Not quite done yet, but closing in on it!

The book, a novella-length-ish book, is called Fireweed Trail and is set in … the forthcoming Lei Crime Series KindleWorld created by talented novelist Toby Neal!

The almost-final cover, by the reliable Victorine, decorates the top of this post!

Aside from all that? My PR impact from being on ENT has been a thrill: I’ve sold about 55 copies and 11 borrows on The Woodsman since that one-day free-day ad ran. I’ll but that for a dollar! (Or $15.00!)

So, that’s all for now, folks. I’ll reveal my big plans for Q2 2015 when we resume in April.

For now, I have to work on getting Fireweed Trail out on time!
