Summer is almost over already! I can feel autumn in the air and I LOVE it. Fall is great – the cooler weather, the smell of burning leaves, the food, Halloween!, my birthday.
However, there is sadness. I don’t think I’m going to get any books out this year. I just work too slowly, and I don’t want to pick up the pace because doing so pretty much guarantees that I will screw something up.
I was hoping to get AnnaBeth2 out in the fall but September begins tomorrow and I don’t even have the rough draft finished. If I were to have it ready in fall, I would probably need to be editing by now.
I am disappointed. I like to release things. It gives me joy.
Lack of writing time is really a huge obstacle for me. I know I’ve said that before. If I can ever work this gig full time, I’m going to crank ’em out like James Patterson.
Ok, maybe not THAT fast because I don’t have a staff, but sure as heck faster than I can now.
But on the bright side, next year should be really exciting – probably at least two books in the first few months and at least one more novella, maybe two if I can get Juniper2 going.
I may check in with a traditional publisher or two for the remix project. You know, throw out a line, see if anyone bites. Some portion of that novel will likely appear on authonomy within the next 3-4 months, so anyone who is interested and has an authonomy account could grab a sneaky peek there. I will announce when/if it appears on that particular website.
