VCU, working and Writing

I went to orientation last Tuesday to be introduced to VCU, and I got my ID now. My schedule is 5 classes two are online, and three are at VCU Tuesday and Thursdays. Not a bad schedule for the fall, and it is going to be my first semester at a University. I will talk about the differences between community college and university, and my experiences for people who are going to Community college who want to transfer to a University. 

I am excited, and in the meantime working on editing to get the ebooks out in between working five days a week. I have been reading more ebooks like David Gaughrans Let’s Get Digital, and the ebook Self-Printed by Catherine Ryan Howard. I have been reading more self-publishing articles to get a picture of what it will be like, so I am prepared. Right now I am just trying to work on the feedback, and I plan on doing a review of an eBook I have from an author that contacted me over Facebook too. I will find the time to get everything done, and do the reviews. It is just a matter of finding the time in between everything. Life is just one learning experience one after the other, and really I love the way my stories are shaping in the rewrites. I forgot how fun the editing process is, and how it all comes together in the end. I have also learned more about life, and people along the way.

Until Next time,

So it begins…

I graduated school Monday, and I loved it! I had fun that day, and I even got a shirt. Since school is over until the end of August I will be working five days a week, and working on the ebooks too.

 I also had an idea to have an awesome indie post featuring books by independent authors. I love reading from them too, and since I am an indie author myself it works out. I chose to become one for the higher royalties, control over everything, and I really don’t want to change my story because of a publisher. I love being able to do things my way, and reaching out to people to help along the way. I have been meaning to read more, but I am enjoying the absence of stress thanks to school. School was stressful for me, and now that I don’t have it things are different. Now I can work on my writing career, and my blogs. 

I am going to get the feedback for the retail story today, and work on making changes all day tomorrow. Then giving it to the editor, and working on the second ebook changes. Then giving Revenge Against the Ex to the proofreader afterward, and after I get back the changes from the editor making the changes, get the cover and publish. Then do it all over again for the second. It is a long…long…process, and when the second ebook is finally done I will  combine both ebooks into a paperback for readers who prefer that format.

That is all I am going to say for now…

Until next time,

School is Over

I took my last exam Tuesday, and I passed all my classes which means my GPA is a 3.0. I am really happy to say I will be graduating with an Associates May 11th! I am finally happy community college is done! It really makes me happy to finally be done with school until August which means I have the whole summer off. I will be working full time, but it also means I have more time to write posts for my blogs! I plan on going ahead and releasing two ebooks this summer, and a paperback on top of that since I have all this free time in between school. As always I will be working on the second killer novel little by little too. I have the second ebook title nailed down which is called Revenge Against the Ex which is fitting since it deals with getting even against them. I really am looking forward to being done with math too since that is a subject I struggle with so no fun there. I will be getting a minor in writing too, and that will be pretty neat too.
I have new student orientation for VCU on the 21st, and then I will know my schedule too. I hope to have time to write in between the classes I am taking, so that is all I have for now.
Until Next Time,

Rude Customer Stories...

I really wish I didn't have to post this, but it's too important for me not to. I had a horrible person yesterday and not only...
