Another year, another set of writing and author goals. I also have reader goals, but that's another post. This year I'm keeping it to three. Everything else is a bonus. Goal 1 | Publish The Bet 2018 was not a good year for me (for lots of reasons I won't bore you...

I am moving.
Many of you already know I am an editor, and the amount of work I have coming in doesn’t allow me the time to properly promote the book on my own, as well as take the time to write the next book. It’s on the go, I promise, but there are only so many hours in the day. I am also a parent of three very energetic boys who need my attention, and all work and no play makes mummy a dull girl.
Today I changed my KDP search terms…
And that is where my trouble started.
Slight formatting tweak
Based on feedback I have had about my choice of a sans serif font in the paperback version of Charon Unguarded, I have made a slight change to a serif font to make it easier on the eyes. This means that the paperback may not be available for purchase on Amazon...

Author Update – February 2018
I’m pleading with readers to please, if you have read it, go to Amazon and Goodreads and leave a review. It doesn’t have to be a 5 star one, but this makes a lot of difference to authors who are trying to promote their work. It tells them that their efforts are worthwhile
Less than a week to go…
Well, let’s get down to the progress report, shall we? After a week of fiddling about, I think I have finally ironed out the kinks with the page count and the table of contents. Note to self: upload as a PDF.

Weekly Goodreads Questions
Today I set up my Goodreads author page! To make it feel properly complete I have answered a few of the suggested questions…
Dionysus and Hermes’ ill-fated late-night swim ends in a drunken bet that puts everybody’s future in jeopardy. The outcome hangs on the choices made by one mortal emperor. Charon discovers a sense of independence and, caught in the fallout, attempts to limit the damage. But when the Fae Courts intervene, and Zeus finds his power threatened by a representation from middle management, Yahweh takes advantage of his old adversary’s lack of attention.
Will Hermes and Dionysus make good on any of their promises? Will Zeus finally take his children in hand and stop them before they cost him everything? Most importantly, will anybody stick to the rules of the bet, without trying to twist them to their advantage?
‘My friend, if the story is written against you, what you need to do is—’
‘Change the story?’
‘I was thinking more like hunt down the author and gut him in front of his family, but your plan works too.’
Charon was once the Ferryman of the Underworld. Now he’s the doorman of a disused office block. If only the old Gods hadn’t lost that drunken bet all those centuries ago, things would be very different. For a start, Ragnarök probably wouldn’t be on its way.
Ra is looking for a way of escaping the mortal realm, but there’s something about his plans he isn’t telling everyone.
Maybe Charon is the only one who’s noticed. He certainly seems to be the only one who cares. But can he do anything about it? It looks like he’s going to try. But there are others who might profit from the situation, and the last thing he wants is the Fae Courts breathing down his neck.
