Monthly Status Report
June was still focused mostly on the eating, and while I didn’t do as well as I wanted, I have gotten rid of the biggest offenders (chips, ramen, etc.) and in general, I am feeling better, though the food prep is still frustrating at times.
Near the end of the month, I got back to writing, though, and have been writing some short stories for anthologies! One of the deadlines IS July 1, so while I am writing this post early, I’m not done with the story and there is still a chance I will get it done it time. That is why this post is so short this month. Darn deadlines!
Optional Monthly Question
July 1 question – There have been many industry changes in the last decade, so what are some changes you would like to see happen in the next decade?
Wow. I am such a newbie on this. I think the main thing is that I want there to NOT be a monopoly. I want other companies besides Amazon to continue to thrive and grow. Yes, it might be more difficult to market on multiple platforms, but I just like lots of variety and options, so I want to participate everywhere.
And that’s all for this week. Have a fantastic July everyone, and see you again in August!

Having our books on multiple sites is good because it’s more ways for readers to get them. I do wish the current distributors would step up to compete more with Amazon and the things that Amazon offers that attracts readers and authors.
Yes, I agree with all of that. Although a program similar to KU on another platform would have the same problem with exclusivity, since that is the basis for those benefits.

Monopoly breaking always seems like a good idea to me! Happy belated IWSG Day!
