Some Updates on Writing, Publishing … Life

I’m sorry for the lame post today. Honestly, I’ve been so busy as a Municipal Liaison (ML) for NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. Writing has kept me busy since the last post. I’m 60,000 words into my latest manuscript, which is book #4 of The Sound Series: The Kylie Bell Chronicles. I’m actually quite pleased with how the first draft is turning out (despite my meticulous planning and plotting for this book). I am in need of alpha readers for the second book in the series, titled The Sound of Color and Light, and if you’d be interested in alpha reading for me, please shoot me an email at allisonwilliford@icloud.com or message me on Twitter (username @AllisonWwrites). I’ve already written a third book in the series, but as of right now, it’s just a first draft and needs major editing.

I’m toying with the idea of rereleasing The Days Without You under my real name, since it’s still published under my old pseudonym, Skylar Wilson. But this time, I want to rework it for Kindle Vella, which is for serials. Not quite 100% sold on the idea, though. So … yeah.

Thanksgiving is this coming week. My sister usually hosts it, mainly because she’s the one with kids and has a house big enough to seat everyone. There are ten of us total, including my parents, my husband and myself, and my sister’s in-laws. This year we’re doing a sort-of potluck. Sister is making most of the main dishes; I’m bringing homemade mashed potatoes; Mom’s bringing her homemade sweet potatoes with a brown sugar glaze, and sister’s in-laws are bringing a pie.

I’m picking back up with The Lithium Writer podcast. Just recorded a new episode this morning with my rendition of the prologue from The Sound of Snap Dragons. Trust me; I’m not a voice over artist. I hate my own voice. I do have another author interview that I’ll be recording tomorrow with author Christina Vourcos.

As far as my editing services go, they are on hold right now. I’m taking some classes in the editing field, as I’d like to step up my game, so to speak.

I finally had to find a primary care doctor. I went well over a year with never having to use my albuterol inhaler, and now, suddenly, I’m using it almost everyday, which is really annoying and sucky.

Well, that’s it for me! Sorry for the lack of posts lately; writing has consumed my time.
