I often see this thread popping up and the only thing I can contribute is 'I wrote today'. And that's it. For me, that's the only success that matters!

and your preorder location is where?
pls.n.thx
:)

All in good time :) I just need to settle on a cover and then I plan to set up the pre-order. But why am I suddenly terrified of this whole process? What if I get a bad review? What if I don't get a book trailer? They'll shout my name in the streets with orders to be flogged.

nah.
everyone gets a bad review.
stock your celebration supplies.
make a mix collection.
create a box in which flog orders may be safely transported to grill.
take picture of the colors, pre-ember-ash.

i will write a review.
which i can not plan to do
until preorders happen.

what does not appeal (above cover)?
perhaps your second release will warrant a different cover.

grab your fav beverage
for upload-button-clicked.

It is scary, but at the same time one of the best feelings you can ever experience.

The answer to the dilemma I discussed worked out. I wrote one more chapter of lead up, where I foreshadowed how the bad guys get in. That gets me to chapter ten. I think I'll have two chapters of the bad guys taking over and being bad, eight chapters of "cat and mouse" to defeat them, and a chapter to wrap up.

I've been continuing to build my plotline map and now character dossiers. The ideas are flowing just fine every time I get to sit down and work. Good stuff is happening.

Indianroads, thought of you when I was in Kittanning, PA the other day:

That's an Indian Vintage, an awesome bike. The paint job tells me that it's newer than mine; I have a 2014, the first year they came out (it's a numbered bike, #463 of the first 1901). They're terrific motorcycles - you should learn to ride, because you don't know how much you're missing when riding in a car ('cage' in biker parlance).

My win for the day is that I finished my 3rd editing pass of 'Redemption', which removed 100 words, the novel now comes in at 98,844 words (down 2,823 from the first draft).

I have some work to do around the house that will take up much of tomorrow, but after that I'll hop back on 'Inception' - which is still in the early plotting stage. It's a novel set in Silicon Valley, just a few years from now.
