tired but happy


I found a really great way to track visitors to the amazon pages of my books. Finally, I'm able to test strategies (pricing, formatting, changes in cover text etc) because I can see how many visitors come and how many buy. It was a revelation. Now, all I need it guinea pigs *muhahaha*

Have a great week,

Short story competition


Holy Lisle announced a Short Story Competition. Eligible are all members of her courses. The best stories will be published in an anthology, and the winners will receive a cash price. If you're a member already, check out this thread in the forum. If you're not a member, why wait? Holly has the best courses in the world. Grab one of her clinics (and the premium membership for the forum), one of the How to Think Sideways Lessons or the extremely helpful How to Revise Your Novel course.

My favorite course is HtRYN. I was so impressed with the really detailed advice on how to make a novel (whether good or completely broken) into something great that I agreed to become an (unpaid) moderator of the forum. I've got to say, the forum is the best writing community I ever encountered (aside from my critique group). Join us. It's worth every penny you spend.

I just discoverd Pinterest...

... and now I'm addicted. It is so much fun and so easy to share the interesting things I find. If you're not on it, you should give it a try. You can befriend me if you want. here's a link to my profile.

Other than that, I started writing something new (a short story this time), and began revision on Juma's Rain. Also, my daughter is urging me to translate Urchin King, so I'll get started on that one as soon as the short story is done.

How about you? Busy with anything?
