I can honestly say that I’ve had a very productive week thus far, and it’s only Thursday. There’s still a couple more to go, so who knows how much more I’ll accomplish before week’s end.

I knew my to do list for this week was long, but I took it one step at a time, and I’ve managed to make it through a good portion of it. Since I’ve had such a great week thus far, it’s enabled me to make a couple of huge decisions that I would like to share with all of you.

First, I originally said I wasn’t going to launch my other site geared towards helping my fellow Maine residents because I just didn’t have time. Well, I changed my mind again. I was making excuses for why I couldn’t do it.

I knew in my heart it would be a valuable site for many people, but part of me was afraid of the work and failing. So I pushed it to the side, telling myself maybe one day. Well, one day is here. I decided yesterday that I was going to launch it, so I’ve been working on since last night. And it’s coming along nicely, thanks to the help of my friends. I’ll be posting a link to it within a couple days for everyone to check out.

My second piece of news revolves around my short story, titled Second Chances that was included in the From the Dark Side Anthology. I know there’s not a lot of money to be made with single short stories, but I want to build up my readers before I publish my first full-length novel, so I’ve decided that within the next week or two I’m going to publish Second Chances. I plan on offering it as a free download to start and then after a certain time, switching over to a fee of $.99. It’ll eventually be available on Barnes & Noble, Amazon and Smashwords. So stay tuned!

    Hi Nikki
    Great site, love your posts. Congrats on making big dents in your to-do list. From someone who battles with her own list, I know that’s a feat!

    I came here from Ash’s Meet n Greet! 🙂 I feel so inspired by your post to cross some stuff off my to-do list! And congrats on getting your short story published! Yet another thing in your post that has inspired me 🙂

  • Ash says:

    I am staying tuned! I’ve never been a short story writer, but just completed two and find the whole “where to submit” thing daunting! I’m curious to learn about the various venues one can take with shorts. I’d love to do a collection.
    Thanks again for your contributions to the Meet n Greet! 🙂

    I know quite a few people that have used Smashwords, Amazon and B&N to release short stories. My friend Jennifer Hudock even put out a full collection of short stories.
