Wednesday Wrap-Up - 10/18/17

Okay, this is my third time trying this.  I've written the post out twice on the Blogger app, and both times the app just fails me spectacularly.  Lucky, my computer is letting me access the site at work again after blocking me for a few days.

Anyway, the main thing I wanted to talk about was the change to Bad Guy Beatdown.  I know I said before that the change to one post for each combatant was something I wanted to do, but it's just necessary.  It was easy to do when it's shows I'm familiar with or have short runs, but 26 episodes in a little over a week is too much to do when there's a baby at home and I'm editing my book too.  I don't want anyone to think this is a ploy for more pageviews, because it definitely isn't that.  I'm worried about losing readers' interest going this way, but it's a necessary evil.

Editing is going well.  I'm still planning to be done by the end of the month but it'll be tight.  I have another sample of the book planned by the end of the month.  After that it's art and the dreaded blurb, which I forgot about until last weekend when my writing group met.  Luckily I'll have their help perfecting it. 

In case you're not aware, the blurb is the stuff on the back of the book that goes over some of the story.  It's usually the same stuff you'd see on the Amazon page for the book as well.  It's similar to a query but has to be careful not to give too much away.  I'm terrible at queries and I'm sure I'll be just as bad at this as well.
