December Wrap-up

Words Written: ?
I was terrible about keeping track of this. I know I wrote 2419 words on the 29th... and I have a few other things that I know what day I wrote them on, but I didn't pay enough attention, so that's where I left this month.

Works Revised: 3
I did the final revisions on Quick and Painless toward the beginning of the month, finalized the last revision of my January release, and revised a short story I'm submitting to a literary publication shortly. I think that's a good bit of work for my least productive month of the year.

Books Released: 2

So, Ray and the second novella both came out in December. That was not exactly the plan, but they happen at the same time in the series timeline (in two separate parts of space and with a completely different set of characters)... so maybe the near simultaneous release was a good thing?
Anyway. I'm really happy to have gotten them out there into the world.

Print Books Acquired: 24

Anne of Green Gables Series (8 books)
 - I've read the first 4 of these, and I'm pretty sure I've bought all of them for my older sister throughout the years, but I've never owned them. Earl's mom was kind enough to remedy that for me this year for Christmas!

The Caster Chronicles (4 books)
 - Another Christmas Present, I've read the first book and found it intriguing, but I couldn't read the rest of the series on my kindle.

Saga, Vol 4
 - I absolutely adore this graphic novel series. The artwork in it is gorgeous and the story is entertaining and funny. What more could you ask for?

Guerrilla Marketing for Writers/Planning Your Novel: Ideas and Structure
 - More christmas presents. I'll be reading these soon. And I'm excited to get through Hardy's "planning your novel" because her fiction university online is super helpful.

The Original Sinners series (books 2-6)
 - I love Tiffany Reisz, so these were Christmas presents to myself. While I've read almost all of her other works, I read the first book in 2012 and didn't get around to getting the rest of them.... until now.

Camelot Burning
 - I won the audio book of this and loved it so much, I grabbed a physical copy of it (and will be re reading it this month)

The Kingdom of Gods
 - The final book in N. K. Jemisin's The Inheritance Trilogy is now in my possession, which means I can start reading the first one!

 - I picked this book up at a signing at the Changing Hands in Tempe. It was great to meet another local author and hear her talk to her readers and answer questions.

The Bane Chronicles
 - How could anyone pass up the opportunity to read more about Magnus?
