Mailed out the last copy of Corruptor this morning. I have a few copies left for sale for Mysticon on Feb 25-27 in Roanoke, VA. Details here.
I’ve noticed an uptick in ebook sales this past week and I’m happy about this. Not because of the book sales (though that makes me very happy indeed) but the fact that people haven’t been dissuaded from purchasing the ebook. I was worried with the $6.50 price tag (still cheaper at Fictionwise) people might be turned off of buying it. Especially given that it’s available at Amazon in print form for just over $15.00 now.
Also, I’ve been keeping track of how many words I’ve been writing so far this year and my pace is much slower than last year. I’m only averaging 1,475 words a day right now. Slacker, I know. At this pace, I’m only going to finish… five books or so, with the total around 530,000 words. I need to pick up the pace.
Okay, I’m going now. I swear.

Steve Miller (of the writing team Sharon Lee/Steve Miller) tries to write 1000 words a day. That seems to be more than enough for him, and them, to have forged a brilliant career.
I believe I averaged about 1000 words last year. But that is misleading because I’ll have really good days — where I put up 4000 or 5000 — and some average days, putting up between 800 and 1500 — and some where I get nothing other than, “Why the Hell are you wasting your time with this?” or the figurative character going, “Nyah, nyah, nyah!” where nothing is coming out of the backbrain and after a while I just give up.
That, of course, does not count anything I do of a nonfictional nature. I’ve never counted that and probably never will.
The price tag on Corruptor has been keeping me at bay but I don’t think I can wait any longer. I’ll strike you a deal, I’m going to buy Corruptor and when I publish my first book you can but it 😉
