Apologies for neglecting this blog. Bit weird of me, as I’ve actually had things to write about! I (finally) published a new book at the end of January. It was under a new pen name. For some reason, I felt uncomfortable putting it out under my real name, even though it fits well and truly… Continue reading I finally did it! Over $1000 in a month!
One of my goals for this year was to increase my word counts. Another goal was to write on average, at least a thousand words a day and thirty thousand words a month. This is the first month that I’ve actually hit that goal! Today I passed that 30,000 mark (31,451 to be precise at… Continue reading Word count milestone
This year has been an interesting one. It’s hard to believe it’s October and will be over in a few short months! After a very unproductive mid-year slump, where I barely wrote any fiction from May until mid-September, I am finally back into the writing saddle. It feels good, I tells ya! While I am… Continue reading September Reflections
I did it! I hit the triple figures! Just… hehehe. Didn’t quite make it on the word count, sigh. More on that further down. March stats: Words written: 24,658 Days of 1000+ words: 15 Days of between 1-999 words: 7 Days of zero words: 9 CRT (teaching) days: 8 Books sold: 85 Money made: Approx. $105-112!

Okay, it’s official. This year is going too fast! How can we already be in March?! Autumn officially started here today, although you wouldn’t know it from the forecast. The week is all 30+ degrees (86+ Fahrenheit), beautifully sunny, and feeling very summery! We had a slow start to the summer, so hopefully the warm… Continue reading February Reflections
I got my final monthly report from Amazon yesterday, so I can tally and calculate my final 2016 numbers.

Well, hello there! It’s been a little while… 2016 is almost over, so it feels timely to check-in. Since I last posted (at the beginning of August, oops), I’ve been pretty busy. I taught full-time at a rural school for two months. That was a good experience, but also exhausting. I was very relieved once… Continue reading End of Year Catch-up!
How are we already half way through 2016?! Why am I always surprised at the passing of time?! I thought it might be timely to do a bit of a check-in on my goals for the year. By the end of the year I want to have cracked the $1000 a month threshold. So far,… Continue reading Mid-year check-in
Mid-month, so that means it’s time to find out exactly how much money I made on Amazon last month! Unfortunately it wasn’t a triple figure month, this month. I need another new release, me thinks. Amazon.com: $77.68 Amazon.com.au: $11.03 Amazon.co.uk: £4.07 Amazon.de: €5.89 Amazon.ca: $5.09 Createspace: $2.04 Total sales were 69 (mix of actual sales and… Continue reading May Numbers & Figures
We’re already a third of the way into June, how did that happen?! I’ve been getting back into the grove of writing the past week or so, after a month or more of barely writing anything and flittering around between different projects. I did get a lot of planning and notes down on a few… Continue reading Project update
