This week I chanted my new mantra of Get Stuff Done more times than I can count. Here's the problem... View in browser
Elite Geek Newsletter from Six Queens

Hello on a wet and windy spring day here where my patience is being tested like never before! I have had the dreaded flu for the last week! Yet being committed to the GET STUFF DONE mantra I filmed another unboxing video and new type of video I was excited to show you. 

After three days of trying to load those videos to You Tube I can tell you I have had no success. I've tried multiple times at varying times with load times of between 5 and 10 hours. The closest I got was after FIVE hours a message said videos loaded 98% and 2 minutes to go. ALAS an hour LATER there was 53 minutes to go and the video was still only 98% loaded. So I'll  add the link to the unboxing video to my latest attempt in here and cross my fingers as I didn't want you to wait any longer for the newsletter.

CHANGES

You all know that there are BIG changes ahead for my Newsletter because I've been chatting about it the last few weeks. So what changes are rolling out this week?

Newsletter Videos

OK... There WOULD have been a video of this Newsletter you could watch but time has beaten me. I'll have this up and running for next week. If anyone would like to see THIS weeks when it goes up tomorrow and give me some feedback please hit reply and I'll send you the link. From next week you'll be able to then chose whether to read or watch my Elite Geek Newsletter . Maybe you'll do both! 

Links

All links are also at the end of this so you can power through them quickly after reading should you choose.

AUSTRALIA READING HOUR

Who doesn't love an hour dedicated to reading,  

Thursday September 19th, is Australia Reader Hour. On that day STOP what you're doing for one hour and pick up a book.

This is designed for Australians to either rediscover or introduce themselves to the benefits of reading. Take the time to learn, escape and relax. And for Booklovers like me it's just AMAZING.

Did you know that In children, reading has been shown to help with identity formation, setting them up for success in the future. Ans  in adults, reading has been shown to reduce stress by 68% more than listening to music, going for a walk, or having a cup of tea. This is the book I'll be reading. Swing by my Facebook or Instagram and let me know what you'll be reading HERE. Or use the Link below!

ON THE WRITING FRONT
I've done some solid editing  on Mage Trials - Kingdom of Secrets this week plus been getting in some new words each day. I try for 2000 new worlds on Mage Trials each day and to edit one two full chapters I've written previously on that project scheduled to be my next release. The longer I can leave it between the first words and the edit of the first draft the better as in my opinion fresh eyes are super important to that first round of edits. ( Cleary that's not been a problem with Mage Trials as it's been FOREVER since I was in that world! 

I write new words first, break for coffee then start edits, break for lunch and then get some new words in between 1000 and 2000 on a DIFFERENT project.

When those words are done I get onto working in my business - writing newsletters, marketing, finances... ALL THE BUSINESS THINGS. Which I enjoy. 

Pick up and drop off for my teens are the time I use to read - or research the market I believe is the technical term:) 

The different project I mentioned above is YA Sci Fi Project which I have a very cool cover for now. Here's the cover. Do you like it? Hit reply and let me know what type of story it is.

UPDATE ON MY DAD

Today we see the specialist and he will give us an update on if Dad is cancer free or not. All positive and healing thoughts and prayers would be most appreciated. You all know that he has been doing it very tough. Yesterday for the first time in nearly 9 months he drove the car around the corner to the shops to get some groceries. Something so small to many by monumental to him. 

BOOKBOX UNBOXING

Latest unboxing is up! I had mixed feelings on this one... Check it out HERE ( UPDATE - THIS LINK MAY OR MAY NOT WORK - at the time of sending this You Tube was still on the fence about loading this video :) )

HOUSEKEEPING

If you are seeing this email .. PHEW!!! All has gone to plan with the move of email providers. I won't bore you with the technical details.  Please add Rhonda@rhondasermon.com to your safe senders list so you don't miss any emails going forward.

Australian Reading Hour
See the new unboxing

Next week look out for the first in a monthly series of emails being added to the schedule this one will be all things audio books, a look at my monthly planner I use to keep on track and a brand new way for you to experience my newsletters - which would have been available today - but time has run away with me :) 

I'll leave you with a ridiculously truthful spot on quote that made me smile from my friend, Author Megan Crewe - who happens to also get a mention in the unboxing video.

" Sometimes the act of revising feels like conducting a series of magic tricks.

And now... I will take three chapters and make them one! *waves wand* "

If ONLY!
