Updates to Moonspinner3 Books

Hello and welcome to Moonspinner3 Books! Yes, I have made some changes to the site. One of the reasons why I made the current change to the site, is that I wanted it look new and fresh. This look makes it very clear that this is site is about the business of writing.

While the site has changed, the content that will appear on this site, will be the same good writing focused blogs that have been always appeared on this site.

On that note, let’s get down to business!

Publishing Anyone?

Last time, that I was on here I talked about the recent publication of Crimson Bounty, and that is not the only piece that has been published. The recent version of Crimson Shot has also been published, and is available on Amazon.

So in total, my goal of getting all of what I have published before, being updated! I have one more to go and that is Crimson Protection, which is my current project that I will hopefully be starting later to day.

But in case you are wondering her all of the works that I have currently published and they are all available on Amazon:

What Else is Going on?

Along with working on updating the works that I have previously published, I have also been working on getting my other writing projects organized. That way I have a clear focus on what my next projects that I want to focus my time and attention on.

Most of the work, will be completed after Crimson Protection is completed, hopefully that will be completed later this month, so that I can work on the other projects that I want to get off the ground and running.

This means that there is more short fiction pieces to be written, edited and published. This also means some of my larger pieces to the worked on as well. But as of right now, I’m working on one project at a time so that I don’t get scattered on trying to work on several projects at once.

Anything Else?

Yes, there is one more thing. The other day, after I finished the edits for Crimson Shot, I also started the revamp work on the newest cover for Crimson Protection and here it is:

Snow Day = Writing Day!!!

Hello everyone! If you are not having a snow day, like me, then I’m sorry, to rub this in. But for once a get a snow day!

snowday

Well, enough celebrating! Yes, it’s fun to have a snow day, for you get to stay inside with nowhere to go, it’s great. But for us writers, we should see it as a chance to catch up on our writing projects.

Granted, this week I have been lucky enough to have two snow days!

On the first day snow day of this week, I worked on my revamp of Crimson Bounty. This includes a full re-writes, edits and full reads, and formatting. With all that said in done I’m proud to announce that the latest version of Crimson Bounty has been published through Amazon Kindle.

Here is the latest cover for Crimson Bounty:

I also had enough time in the day to work on the latest cover for the second book in the Sheriff Crimson Series, Crimson Shot. Here is the latest cover for Crimson Shot:

While, I have no where to go for I get a chance to stay home and write, I will be working on the revamp of Crimson Shot.

Granted, while I’m going on about the latest that I’m working on. There are some key points that we all as writers can take away, such don’t let a snow day go to waste, and while the snow is falling outside, there are plenty of words that can be written.

While, I’m busy writing on this snowy day, I hope that you have a great writing day!

 

2020 is here and where is this year going?

Hello and we have made it 2020! Boy did 2019 fly buy and this year, I’m hoping to do better than last year. Last year was crazy with lots of changes to my life and as much as I tried to make writing and my business a priority, I really didn’t. I will admit that I failed last year, and I am hoping that this year is going to better.

I’ve already decided that I”m not going to make as many changes to my business’s appearance as I have done in the past. Therefore, what is out there on the heading will stay. I think that is where I lost some of my focus by trying to cover every part of fiction by having this imprint and that imprint. But I think that also this focus on having the different imprints I also because of some of the advice that I have been given.

See as writers, we are often told, that if you are going to write in different genres that you have to have a different pen name and sometimes you have to sign with different publishers. Well, as much as this might be common practice, it is probably not is best. I mean look at some known writers that have written in different genres they still use their name. The authors that I’m talking about is Stephen King. Granted, Nora Roberts uses a pen name when she switches from romance to mystery and thriller to a pen name, I think that its harder for your readers to follow a writer.

Granted, I will admit that some readers may not like romance or fantasy, but if their author is dipping their toes in that part of the water, than maybe their preferences might follow where their authors are going. Maybe I’m wrong, but in some ways, or in a lot of ways the madness of trying to please or change when your mind wants to try something new is just flat out crazy.

I’ve already decided that last year, I would not be using several pen names based on genres that I’m writing, but would rather use one name for all of my works. So maybe I need to do the same thing with by publishing business as well? Sorry, no, that’s not going to happen. I’m keeping off the imprints and not creating anymore.

Yes, last year I was away a lot and that was hard. I think that in someways my craft suffered for it, and I really didn’t put out anything new. I just worked on updating previously published works, and I’m still working on that. But I’ve also decided that this year, I’m going to dedicate my time to one project at a time, instead of switching back and worth between projects.

Previously, I’ve made a point of stating that I’m working on said project, and then I get to a point and switch to another project. No more of that, at least I can try. This year, I want to start something and complete it to the end. Granted, right now, I’m busy working on updating the first of the Sheriff John Crimson Stories, Crimson Bounty. Once that is completed then I will work on the second and then the third. Once those are completed we will see where this year really takes off.

I want to thank all of you that have stayed with me, through out my few years of growth on this site and for following everything that I am working on to see where the future will go.

I want this year, to be the better than last year and I want to really focus on my craft and get organized, which I will probably talk more about later.

I am in the process of working on things to build upon and to discuss.

I will leave you there. Happy New Year, my friends. I hope that you all have a great writing day.
