Time for something different! Today I go over practice drills I use to improve my aim and movement skills, with particular emphasis on headshots. I focus a bit on Tracer, because the skills involved in playing her well will carry over to almost any other character in the game, but these exercises will also help snipers or anyone else for whom accuracy is a big deal.


I hope you’ll find this useful! Likes and Subscribes will help spread the word, if you do.


For more in-depth treatment of these drills individually, see also:

Enjoy!

Agent Seeking and Self-Pub Pondering

So far my efforts to get Sky Pirates of Calypsitania to market have not met with success. The rejections have ranged to form “not at this time” letters to more personal “not at this time” letters, but the net result is the same, i.e., “not at this time.”


I’ve been pretty carefully targeting my pitches to maximize their chances, but alas I am starting to run out of “top tier” possibilities and I have to consider what to do next. As this is my strongest book to date and what I hope will be the beginning of a personal “franchise” (to coin a marketing term), I don’t want to make any giant newbie mistakes that will come back to bite me later, but at the same time, I do need to start making some headway.


So I am now considering self-publication. It’s not really where I wanted to go with this book– my long-term goal for this one is “See it on the shelves at Barnes & Noble.” However, I also need to actually get books out there being read and making money, which they can’t do just sitting on my hard drive receiving rejection letters.


I think I’ve also started making headway on the next book, although it’s still quite vague in my mind, to wit: another book in the same setting as Sky Pirates. As much as I love Verity and Tanya and I want to know more of their story, they’re only two people in a much wider world, and they’ve earned a rest from adventure for a while, the poor dears. Plus, they’re getting out of the airships business (or at least trying to), but I’m still interested in following that thread. So that means finding someone else to write about!


So while what is probably the last round of agent pitches goes out, I’m going to hit the Scrivener corkboard and start plotting. If any of my writing industry friends have suggestions for getting the current book rolling, however, I’d love to hear them!

In which I need to learn to stand behind the tank, Inkblitzer isn’t indecisive, and Trixie has too much faith in Trixie. Warning for language.


As always, questions, comments, and suggestions welcome and desired!
