Another Big Announcement! (Hint: It Involves a Contract!)

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I have another big announcement to share with everyone. I’m sure people have noticed how little I’ve been posting here for the past month or so, and also that I’ve been a little less active at times on Twitter and Facebook.

That’s because I’ve been working on a non-fiction book for John Wiley & Sons. I signed the contract in mid-February for The Smashing Idea Book, part of the Smashing Book series. It’s a big project, with a ton of research involved, and it’s been taking up a lot of my time. I have very tight deadlines (with a quarter of the book due every three weeks), and my regular work load hasn’t let up that much (I’ve had to adjust some things, but I’m still doing a ton of freelance writing), so that’s why I’ve been a bit less active elsewhere. It’s a bit different to be working under tight deadlines again, and I’m learning that time management is not necessarily my biggest strength!

The writing and editing of the book will be wrapping up in the middle of May (I’ve already submitted the first half, and am working on edits for the first quarter), and after that I should be back to my regular blogging/tweeting schedule. If you’re interested, you can already pre-order The Smashing Idea Book through Amazon UK (it’s not available on the US site yet, but should be before too long).

I’ll share more details as I have them!

I don't get paid for the content on this site, so if you find it useful, consider a donation.

  1. You should be very proud of yourself. Congratulations and be careful not to burn the candle at both ends and burn yourself out.

    • Thanks! I plan on taking some time off once the editing and writing are done. Maybe take a real vacation for once!
