I feel this feeling of dread as I inform you that I’m one book away from finished my publishing year.
Okay, so let’s back step. You see I’m in no real rush to become big and famous. I’m in no rush to make a shit load of money or whatever it is people want from publishing. What I want is to write the book, and that’s it.
So for the last couple of years, or last year and this one I have been trying to figure out how I want to go about this. how I feel I need to set myself up so that when I get to the point of people actually making taxable mounts of money, I’ll be established, first on my own, as myself sitting here on my side of the computer and then establish myself on the other.
I want to be completely settled so that I don’t have a nervous breakdown and end up disappointing all those new fans of mine. I want to be completely comfortable in my ability to put out work year after year.
So I decided that I would write a small year and a big year. Which starts this one, so for me this year I will only have 6 releases, and I’m hoping to have around 12 the following. Which means that once I finish the first book in my AWRT series I will have gotten to the 6 book quota and my goal for the rest of the year is to write and get the books ready for publishing the following year.
That’s not to say this year I still not doing a lot as I am, but writing new books that will be publishing this year, by May I’ll be done.
And since I’ve set this, I’ve sat down and wrote this out, I thought you might like to see what I am publishing this year.
My Outside, My Inside (free)
Protecting My Werewolf (Moonlit Wolves)
Ben’s Wolf Surprise (Second Pack of Cameron)
A Road Worth Travelling (ARWT)
Being That for You
My Kevin is getting re-edited and proofed and going to be reissued everywhere
Being That for You is a blog story I’m publishing (as apparently it’s real good and was written in a time when no one read it)
I am also getting all my short freebies reedited and proofed and then republishing them, (they won’t be free anymore, so get them now so you have proof and can get the new ones free).
They will also be collected into a paperback with a few shorts from April Kelley which we will be giving away for free at GRL (or she will, as I won’t be there, and I’ll be holding giveaways for the small collection I’ll have)
That is it, I will be spending the second half of my year writing what I can in order to get 6 months ahead of myself so that I don’t freak out and end up in massive bloke that ruin nearly a year of my publishing life.
Saying all this, it will probably mean that I will just write ARWT series flat out as I’ll be in there head space and in that world. It’s a hope but it’s also allows me not to rush and get them all out
I plan on writing up more m-preg, and my two vamp story that I have cover art for. That’s the plan anyway, for the rest of the year, as well as whatever pops into my head.
We will see how it work, I’m hoping for the best. it will be nice to have a good solid flow of story waiting to be published that way I’ll be able to get into promoting them better and learning more about that side of the world, without fear of not actually finishing off the book’s that are planned, or not writing at all.
But on the sadder note there will be no November book this year, I had hope and if I get motivated and am able to write it I WILL publish it, because that’s what it’s for, but I’m not putting a guarantee on it. I’m also planning on expanding this series to include other things, but you’ll have to wait a bit for me to get into that, it’s important but some things would be better
And as I’ve prattled on enough I will leave you for this week, hope you still love me even after such devastating news *wink*
‘Til next time….
