New Deadlines for Courtney’s Redemption

Hi! I know it has been a busy week for me considering I am doing lesson plans and training at my daycare job (Not to mention I haven’t even got started on doing my taxes yet…gulp!). But I decided that I wanted to start the new year off by creating some new deadlines when it comes to finishing Courtney’s Redemption. I know that deep down, I had to be realistic about my writing deadlines when it came to completing the book. I am pretty sure that I would have fully completed it if I had just turned it into a full length novel already but I will not dwell on the past. Have to keep moving forward right?

Anyways, after thinking about this long and hard, I came up with at least five different deadlines to complete Courtney’s Redemption by the end of this year.

I am pretty sure I will be able to complete this book between June and August of this year. As of me writing this, I am currently on chapter eight of this book and have already established a range of ten to thirteen chapters for me to complete this book. Considering my books have a word count range of 60,000 to 65,000 words (240 to 260 pages), I have no doubt that I will be meeting my deadline very soon. For any of you who might be wondering if my book is on the short end, it is. Normally, the word count to my books would have to be closer to 80,000 to 90,000 words for a science fiction romance novel if I wanted to do a traditional book publishing deal.

But considering I am self-publishing, I can do what I want.

And it feels good.

That’s all for now.

My first love has always been writing since I was eight years old. After getting my Bachelor's Degree in Fiction Writing from Columbia College Chicago and struggling for years trying to get published the traditional way, I decided that the only way to promote my work was to promote myself which is why I am self-publishing my paranormal romance The Truson S.E.T. Series.
