I’ve been using a new project management tool (introduced at the Evil Day Job) called AgileZen that has really helped me keep track of what’s in my queue, what my dates are, and the associated tasks for each book. You can set up a free account with up to one board (that’s what I’m doing so far).
I have projects color-coded by publisher (including a color for my self-pub works), so at a glance I can see what needs to be done first and what % completed each book is.
In the past two weeks, I’ve crossed off Her Grace’s Stable (submitted) and several of The Zombie Billionaire’s Virgin Witch tasks leading up to cover and formatting. I love crossing things off my monstrous to-do list!
Now the only thing I have to work on until October are: Lord Regret’s (obstinate butthead) Price and Coyote Con!
No mercy, no surrender, Sig. I’m going to tie you to a chair and have my wicked way with you until this draft is done.
