I think the time I actually spend the least amount of my work time writing books. Most of my time is spent taking care of the behind the scenes promotional and business side of trying to build a writing career.
This Monday was a work holiday for P.R. so we had a long weekend. We packed up on Saturday and Headed off to yet another Sci-Fi convention. I had gone 50 years without ever making it to a science fiction or comic book convention and now so far this year I have been to three and there will be a few more before the end of the year. I'm having the best time!
But all of this fun is distracting me from writing. I have been trying to stay up late and get some actual writing done but it's been difficult when I'm wiped out from running around conventions all day.
Sunday night I seriously wanted to get a good excerpt for my fist Sneak Peek Sunday for the Members Only page on my website, StephenBurckhardt.com.
I want to give you all something at least slightly juicy but I just haven't gotten that far into the story yet. I was trying to write up to a really intriguing part but I was literally falling asleep on my keyboard. I decided to just grab something and post it so I could go to bed. I still haven't reread what I posted on the Sneak Peek Sunday section. In truth, I'm a bit afraid to see what I put on there. God only knows!
I am also hoping to make it to a writers convention this year in October. To that end I have been designing and ordering promotional material to get ready for the event. I want to design things now and get a small run printed so I can make sure things will look good and all be in order before October.
Here is what I have been working on.
Last, but most certainly not least, I have been trying to make sure this website is GDRP compliant. Since people have accessed this site from Europe, I have to meet the personal data protection standards the European Union is putting in place in regards to the collecting of personal data online. I think I have everything in place now but I'm not a real wiz when it comes to these kinds of things so I hope I got it right.
P.R. looked it all over for me and seems to think I will be in compliance. I hope so!
Now, I'm off to see just how crazy my Sneak Peek Sunday post actually was. I hope it wasn't too weird because I was so tired, anything is possible!
Thanks for following along with my work, I hope at the very least you find my misadventures entertaining.
