Deadline: January

I have been hemming and hawing too long. It’s time to make a real dive into my writing career, to really give it a go and see if I have what it takes. So to that end I am setting myself a deadline of January. By then I will have my writings ready to go, covers designed, advertising plotted, and release strategy developed.

The tentative plan as of today is that each year I will release a trio of ebooks in the spring, and a trio in the fall. They will be shorter, novella length roughly, and will then be bundled together into a full length print book. Some will be chained novellas, others will be collections of short stories. In the summer, I will release at least one novel or novella, something not tied to the fall or spring releases.

I have a huge back log of work begging to see the light of day, enough to put out stuff for about the next three years under this schedule. And now it is time to finally pull the trigger on it. Wish me luck!

  1. I keep meaning to add your blog to my feed reader so that I can keep up with your journey. So, I am now subscribed.

    I’d planned to start getting more serious with my fiction writing again this fall, but it looks like I’ll be on contract for a tech book (waiting to hear back from the publisher right now). When it comes to paying the bills and actually having something published, well, I can’t exactly turn that deal away. It sucks that it’ll interfere with my own plans, but it’ll only push me back a few months.

    I hope all goes well with your writing. I look forward to seeing what you do.

    At the end of the day, it’s not about talent. It’s about getting the job done, one word at a time.
