Well, the Now & Forever ABCs are done. Now what do I do?
First off, probably not have anything daily to say anymore. I’ll probably cut back to something a couple times a week. I can’t promise I’ll have anything regularly, but I will try to. I’m, in fact, considering a rule of one post a week, and if I wind up with two or three then queuing them up to guarantee a post for the next week. Reblogs, of course, don’t count.
Also on my list of ways to give myself Hell, I’ve finished the first edit run of Ready or Not and … well … I’m happy with it up to the final two chapters, the ones I wrote for CampNanoWriMo. Those are awful, I think. I’ve left them in, for now, and handed the thing over to my editor for her opinion, but odds are that those two chapters will need scrapped and a new ending written. Until this is complete, Book 3 is still “Book 3” and still non-existent.
Færie Patrol is still a dream project. But I might dust it off and get back to it, maybe give myself a short vacation from Now & Forever for a little bit. Who knows.
In the mean time, Love or Lust continues to sell — not as well as it did in July, but it’s selling. I really must say, thank you all who’ve bought the book and/or told your friends and family that they ought to buy the book. And thank you to any who buy the book in the future. Publishing a book by any method, traditional or indie, is a gamble; anyone who tells you they’ve the secret to what book will sell, and/or how to make sure a book sells probably will next offer you ocean-front property in Niger. That my book spend a couple of weeks on a best seller list, was a Hot New Release on Amazon for its entire eligibility timeframe … I’m awed. I hope, one day, to make writing my living — without the distractions of a day job I can write more, faster, and better, and this is a solider first step in that direction than I’d dared to hope. I’m in no danger of paying the rent every month with my book, but some months — it would seem — I can.
