Progress Report – October 2014

Progress Report – October 2014

Posted Works

QuillI started the month finishing The Canadian Caper, the Postmodern Jukebox adventure which is highly likely to be the first popfic ever written about the band. On Wattpad, I finished Before Days by adding First Born. I also finished The Social Media Guide, and began to post Reversal. I submitted eight works to the #Wattys2014 (The 2014 Watty Awards):

On, I continued spinning out The Three of Us. On Ad Astra, I added a response to a prompt about discoveries. Because it was the first of the month, I called it Linfep Linfep Linfep. I responded to a prompt about embarrassment by posting a MelissaLeonora story, Red. I posted Theorizing.

On the G & T Show forums, I finished spinning out Recessive and added Across the Universe.


With over 75 stories with at least 10 reviews and 1000 reads,  I am beginning to see some real benefit from this kind of popularity. At this point, the In Between Days collection is the third-most read story on Ad Astra, so it benefits from being listed under the Top Ten. In Between Days is also the fourth-largest series on that site, and is the single most-reviewed series. I am the third-most prolific author and may very well hit second place before the end of the calendar year. On Wattpad, I’ve exceeded 500 followers and am looking to get 1,000 as I believe I will get a lot more reads there once I do, as it seems to be an identifiable milestone that is respected there.

See the Stats page for individual read and review counts.

WIP Corner

I continued working on The Polymer Beat, the second book in the wholly original Obolonk series.

Prep Work

I entered the title of The Polymer Beat into the NaNoWriMo site. I have entered as a so-called rebel, as I don’t have the time to start something new this year.

I created a Facebook Author page to promote my work.

In preparation for beginning to take two courses at a time at Quinnipiac (to be started in January of 2015 and going for all three semesters of that year), I continued working hard to get ahead on work such as keeping the Twitter stream filled, etc. I also worked on social media for the G & T Show.
