Wow! Two chapters in one week! Whodathunket?
I’ve been posting a lot more on Facebook lately. Go ahead and “friend” me over there if you use that service. I tend to post shorter bits of information there. You are unlikely to see the extensive behind-the-scenes information on Facebook that I post here.
I’m also starting work on producing another short ebook based on one of my old short stories. This one is “Bedhopping.” I intend to add some material to the end, the kind of stuff that made Oops! my best seller so far.
Yes, you read that right. Oops! is now my best-selling book. Which isn’t saying much. I expect to break even on my major costs to produce this website this year, but that’s about it. If I’m lucky, I’ll break out and do much better. We’ll have to see, though.
While I’m taking this weekend off, I have no plans for the actual weekdays next week (for the moment.) This may give me the chance to start and complete Chapter 11, and integrate the material from “Happy Fucking Birthday” into Raven and June. I’m hoping this will be a painless process because of how recent that material is, but who knows. I could end up completely rewriting it from scratch, which is what I did with “Merry Fucking Christmas,” and nearly did with “Raven For Lunch.”
I have no idea how much work will be involved with integrating the unpublished short story I wrote a couple of years ago. That story has some key parts that lead to the end of the second act integrated into them. I would say it was unknown to me at the time I wrote it, but that isn’t entirely true; I always knew how the story would end up. I just wasn’t convinced until last year that I could actually write the whole story.
But here we are; Probably around half of the way into it!
Now I’m just scaring myself.
I seriously hope I can have it completed by May. It will depend on how much time I can devote to it each week.
Wish me luck!
