Writing hours in October 2015

Can you believe it? The end of the year is already just around the corner. At Ylva, we’re hard at work preparing our books for the holiday season. In fact, we just put together a video of all our holiday-themed books:

Of course, there’ll also be new romance novels and other books coming out in December. Two of them are mine: Just Physical and Time Management for Writers.

book fair 2015That’s what I spent most of my time on in October–getting both books ready for formatting and typesetting before I left for the book fair in Frankfurt. The book fair was as interesting as it was exhausting. Books and book people everywhere! It can get a little overwhelming, but it’s always fun, and this time, I had the pleasure of meeting fellow Ylva author G Benson, author of All the Little Moments.

After I returned from the book fair, I spent most of my time doing research about the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 and about life at the turn of the century. It’s going well, so I’m hoping to start writing my historical romance Shaken to the Core later this month, while at the same time translating 100,000 words of Damage Control as my personal NaNoWriMo challenge.

So, let’s take a look at my working hours in October:

As you can see, I’ve been trying to keep my working hours a bit more reasonable and catch up on reading and TV shows on Sundays. I hope you’re all taking the time to relax a little too.

Have a good rest of the week!
