April Writing Journey Wrap-up

April Writing Journey Wrap-up Melissa Bellis

At the beginning of the year, I set some monthly goals for myself. To document my journey and hold myself accountable, I’ll share how I spent my time with you. My April wrap-up:


✔ Received the cover design for Sunstruck
Sunstruck has a cover! I love it! It’s gorgeous! It’s everything I wanted. Check my Instagram or website if you want to see it: Cover reveal Sunstruck (YA Fantasy) – Melissa Bellis


✔ Plot book 2
I continued plotting book 2 (currently unnamed) in April, but I haven’t started writing it yet.


✔ Copy edits Sunstruck and bonus chapters
After receiving the copy edits from my editor, I spent two weeks editing my story and the extra bonus chapters of my Reader Magnet.


✔ Updated my website
I updated my website. Come and have a look: Young Adult Fantasy Author – Melissa Bellis


✔ Formatting
I bought a formatting tool (Atticus). In just two days I formatted both the ebook and the paperback.

Still on my to do list and moved to May or later:

  • Set up bookfunnel to distribute my bonus chapters.
  • Set up KDP and prepare for my booklaunch.
  • I contacted proofreaders for my next stage in publishing. May will be all about proofreading.
