NaNoWriMo – Conclusion

Welcome! I hope everyone is well.

It is the end of the month which today is the last day to complete NaNoWriMo. As a writer, it can be a struggle to write at any time.

I struggled with my writing this NaNoWriMo. I knew how I wanted my book to go and believed I had enough of a layout to make through my book.

In the mid-second week, I revamped my entire layout to add more to my book. Still, I struggled with this book.

Now back to the task. Each day I wrote, I wanted to add adventure into my writing to give it more hype. To keep you the reader enticed.

No, it’s not totally where I want it to be. But that’s why it’s only a first draft. There will be a lot of edits, adding, and tweaking as the book becomes a final product.

To write 50,000 words in a month. Well, that is a great accomplishment. One, I finished on Saturday, November 28, 2020, at 4:58 PM. Yes, I was doing a happy dance.

Thank you all for supporting me as an Indie Author. Now, that NaNoWriMo is over with I will get back to writing more posts.

My Writing Journey

Welcome, it has been a little over a year since I started on the journey of my blog site. I have to say thank you to all that have followed, liked, and commented. You have inspired me to continue to move forward with these posts.

Even some of you have supported me in my career as an Author. I greatly appreciate it. I have to say it has been a struggle. For anyone that thinks writing a good book is easy. I am proof to tell you it is not. It is a lot of hard work, especially when you are an Indie Author.

Why? Good question, wherein traditional publishing helps you with all the steps that need to be taken to get the book published and noticed. Yes, I mean help with some of the marketing side. As an Indie Author, if all falls on the Indie Author to do everything. If one has the money, they can outsource some of the duties. Otherwise, the Indie Author has a full plate to make their career successful.

This year has had a lot of ups and down, besides the Covid-19 virus. It was a sad time when we lost my Mother-in-Law. May she rest in peace. Plus, one of my favorite actors of all time Sean Connery. The bad reviews I got, which I am thankful for it helped me to understand what I did wrong. I have since fixed. Yes, I hope to get all the errors out with the first book, so when I move on to the second, it flows more smoothly.

Yes, this did put Book Two – Dragon Squad behind my schedule. However, I am now back on Dragon Squad, has it planned to Launch on February 28, 2021, my birthday. In support of this, I have put Dragon Fusion on sale. Dragon Squad will be up for pre-sale in a couple of weeks. I will let you know the exact date.

Some other things for you to watch for will be the Reveal of Book Two Book Cover. Also, I will be holding several virtual online book signing of Dragon Fusion Paperback. We will have prizes. All this will take place in November.

One more thing, I almost forgot to mention. When Dragon Squad goes up for Presale, anyone that buys a book before the launch day will go into a pot for a drawing to win a tremendous gift on the day of Launch. Yes, if you buy more than one, you get an entry for each one. I will reveal the prize on Launch Day.

I am excited we are going to have some fun, as you can tell. So if you don’t want to miss any of these wonders dates, please sign up for my email so you will get a notification. As some of you know, depending on how the algorithm is working will depend if you get to see these such post on a particular platform.

30 Days Left to Book Launch

I am excited to announce there are only 30 days left for the book launch of Dragon Fusion, the First Book in The Elite Series.

If you have read my blog posts, then you know I have been researching to prepare for this day for a while. I am getting anxious. I want everything done now, that way I can relax to enjoy the week before and one launch day. Not sure it will happen that way, but a girl can dream.

I have spent almost three years getting this book completed. Now that we are at this point, it is a fantastic feeling of accomplishment. I have to say writing Dragon Fusion Book One of The Elite Series, was a nightmare. It was a learning experience the whole way through. I made some bad choices that cost me dearly, money, and time-wise. However, I’ve read many websites, blog posts, and watches many YouTube videos which paved the way for Dragon Squad Book Two of The Elite Series to co much faster.

Everyone invited to the Launch Party, which is an online event to be held on July 7, 2020, at 7 P.M. central time. Location Facebook under Karen Carnahan Facebook Scribblersquest events. I look forward to seeing you there; you do want to miss out. Join my hubby and I for some fun.
