My 11th report for my 12-week challenge

I’m getting near the end of the challenge. One more week to go. Here is what I did during the 11th week of the challenge:

 

  1. I finished one book this week and I’m still one book behind on my book-to-read goal. I started another book today and I have to finish reading these two books next week to end my reading goal for my 12-week challenge.
  2. I did not make my marketing goal of 70 items this week. I only make 56 total this week. The Giveaways post on Goodreads have 354 total so far, a gain of 30 entries this week. “To Read List” has 136 entries to date, a gain of 12 entries this week. I’m been posting too much on social media the last 10 weeks. It might be construed as hard-core spamming so I have to tone it down a bit for one week. Next week, I have to do it again in earnest since my Goodreads Giveaways are ending on Nov. 2.

1 posts on Social Media

54 Press Releases

1 Giveaways post on Goodreads

3. I’m still trying to catch up on my word count challenge. I’m only at 44,355 words. I only have a week to catch up. This will be a tough order but I just keep on plugging along. My mind has been preparing for the NANOWRIMO in November so I’m not concentrating on this one. We’ll see what happens next week.

 

 

Until next time. Stop and smell the roses.

Fifth Report of My 12-Week Challenge

Here is my fifth report for my twelve weeks challenge:

 

  1. My book to read goal is still on target. I finished Angels & Demons by Dan Brown on 9/8/16. I now have to read 5 more books in 7 weeks to make my reading goal for my 12-week challenge.
  2. I made my marketing goal this week – 73 marketing posts/pitches:
  • 3 posts on Social Media. One of them has 191 members. The Giveaways post on Goodreads have 254 entries total, 43 entries this week alone. It have 94 on “to read” list so far.
  • 70 emails and letters to friends.
  1. I’m still way behind my word count challenge. I’m only up to 21,740 words. This week, I’m supposed to be on 25,000 level. I have to double my effort next week.

 

See you next week.

 

Until next time. Stop and smell the roses.

Ten Days to Launch Date of “The Wentworth Legacy”

 

The Wentworth Legacy Kindle Cover Revised

 

Countdown is on. We have 10 days before the launch of “The Wentworth Legacy”. I’m so excited to see this book in circulation. It has been forming in my consciousness since the 80s when I became aware of my surroundings, having witnessed how the other side of the track lived.

 

Have you ever heard about the Gold Coast of Long Island? You must have. Do you remember “The Great Gatsby”? Well, that whole area of the North Shore of Long Island is famous for big estates during the Gilded Age? It is the setting of “The Wentworth Legacy”.

 

Do you miss the “Downton Abbey” yet? I’m sure you do. We don’t have the aristocracy in the United States. But we have the old money who can come as close to the aristocracy as you can be. Spencer A Wentworth is from the old money.

 

So get ready for a good read. If you cannot wait for the paperback, you can pre-order your Kindle copy at http://www.amazon.com right now.

 

Until next time. Stop and smell the roses.
