Getting the Books Sorted


I’ve been writing like mad when Lola lets me.  I’m half way through Fortified Dreams, which will come out in 2016.  I’m not entirely sure what other book I’ll put out this year, but I’m working on several.

However, I’ve got a cover for one of my 2017 books already.  That’s right.  I have the cover for a book that won’t release until next year.  I’ve had an idea for a book for a while and just haven’t written it.  So, last night, instead of writing on Fortified, I began developing the basic plot for Ritual Dreams.

Here’s the hope for 2017:

6 Dreams novels (Ritual will be one of them, cover reveal to come at another time)

3 Death Demon Trilogy Novels (the Cassie Strachan series)

and 3 unknowns that might honestly turn out to contain one or more Dreams novels.

To do this is going to require some organization.  I’m going to have to do some serious plotting (especially the Death Demon Trilogy).  I can write a novel in a month, but I have to put my nose to grindstone to do it.

The interesting thing is that my readers will probably have multiple books available for pre-order at one time.  I’m hoping it doesn’t hurt me or my readers.  That’s a lot of books to buy next year and at $3.99 a book, well, if a reader bought every book, it would cost them $48 just on my books.  I know everyone reads other authors, so I hate to cut into everyone’s book buying budget.

However, I can’t charge much less than $3.99 a book considering the costs of publishing as an indie keep going up (I’m going to need 12 cover, need 12 books edited, need some books proofread, etc)… Which is part of the reason I’m trying to work ahead some… that it takes me about 3 months to get a book written and ready for publication.
