We’ve been doing the Litzo version of spring cleaning this past week. Having completed our first year of self-publishing, we were faced with an entirely new task ~ business taxes. A necessary evil that left us scratching our heads and wondering where it all went…and then tracking it down and finding the receipt. On a high note, we made more last year than we expected. Hopefully, that trend will continue. We’ve made some changes to how we do business and that should make tax time a lot less painful next year.
On the writing side of things, we got through initial edits on six chapters of the second book in the New Mother Earth series, Hunters of Gaia. That work-in-progress is currently sitting at 58,753 words. We’re hoping to add a lot more in the next few weeks. We’ll be formatting and uploading our short horror story, The Mortuary Fly, on Smashwords. The plan is to offer it for free for the next several months. We’re also revising the first half of our paranormal horror novel, The Ocular. That manuscript is also more than half finished but the plot isn’t as developed as we would like it to be.
On a more personal note, we said goodbye this week to our beloved four-legged family member, Maybel the Pug. We were all there to see her on her way and happy that we had fourteen good years with her.
Hug your family close!
Anne, Nancy and Eric
