Month in Review: August. And September goals

Things I Did:

I published The Dragon Prince's Librarian, built an ARC team for Elva Birch, wrote the 20k on Gryphon of Glass that I wanted to (ending the month at 30k on that book), got accepted into a New Years anthology, wrote 1700 on that story, wrote 1700 onto the Firebird of Glass outline to make sure I didn't write myself into a corner with Gryphon, and laid out two more series that I'm not allowed to start until I finish two of the ones I have open. I also finished the Magical Pets Project: https://www.ellenmillion.com/magicpets.php

The DPL launch went fine...I have no expectations for my Elva titles, and it did just a little better in sales than the first book, though it didn't rank quite as high. It seems well received.

Thing to Do:

Finish Gryphon of Glass (38k now). An early October launch would be nice, but if it doesn't happen, it doesn't. Tropical Tails goes up the 13th and I have ZERO expectations for this one - it's a collection of shorts that probably will appeal only to the core Shifting Sands fans. Not planning any advertising. After Gryphon of Glass, I have the Green Valley Christmoose Disaster to write, which should be a nice fluffy holiday break. I need to do paperbacks for DPL (done) and Tropical Tails, too (half done). I think that, given the school situation, I am going to give myself a 20k goal again - that should finish Gryphon and put a nice start on the Ex-mas book.
