Another month almost done, and spring is hitting us full force. The latter, I deduce from three facts: One, flowers. They’re everywhere. Two, there’s a gang of pigeons performing unspeakable acts in the sandpit in our garden. They’re driving our cats absolutely mad. Three, I consist mainly of headaches, and little else, what with the weather switching back and forth between brilliant sunshine and oppressive thunderclouds. I honestly can’t wait for it to finally get decided one way or the other. I don’t even care anymore which (though I’d prefer the warmer variety.)
Having published two books this year already, and in desperate need of a break, I’m currently not writing at all. Which is a state that, knowing me, won’t last – I’m already busy piling up random ideas and dialogue snippets at the back of my head – so I need to seize the moment to get other things done while I can. Once the writing starts again, everything else will go on the back burner.
My main April project was to revisit all my books, fix any vexatious formatting issues and… fade them out of Kindle Unlimited.
Yes, after ten years, I’ve finally decided to spread myself beyond Amazon. Sooner or later, you’ll be able to get my books via Kobo, Apple, Barnes & Noble, and all those other stores. I’m starting with e-books only, to get a feeling for the whole thing and see if it’s worth the effort, and then I’ll probably do paperbacks as well. I might even consider audiobooks, but right now, that feels like a giant leap I’m not yet ready for. We’ll see.
I’m also trying to plant tomatoes, but seeing how I let the neighbor’s kid water them (and, guess what, watering isn’t the same as drowning) they may not survive.
That’s it, I’m off to fix myself another coffee in the vain hope of keeping the headaches at bay. Have fun out there, seize the sunshine. Here’s a pic of two snuggly cats on my lap, for once not fighting each other over who gets the comfy space.
