I’m not big on New Years Resolutions. I think they’re a waste of time. If you want to change something, change it. Don’t wait until the New Year to do it.
Well, I want to change a few things, and it coincidentally happens to be mid-January, so don’t go thinking this is some kind of New Years Resolution thingy!
Spoilers ahead for Educating Goldilocks, which is free at Smashwords since, like, 2015 or so. You have no excuse. Last warning!
I started my annual editing of Educating Goldilocks a few weeks back, and I got to chapter 17, and I realized I hated it. It’s a leftover from the original short story that over the multiple times I had edited the book, no longer felt right. In the original story at that point, Rob tells the girls that the final is a “tightest pussy contest” and goes on to find that Maricela is the tightest, and fucks her to orgasm first as a reward. In the years since I first wrote the story, the girls have been gaining Rob’s respect, and it just felt wrong. So I threw it out and have nearly rewritten that chapter to fit my current vision of the characters and their relationships.
I didn’t take out the hot sex, I just made it work better. And now the characters have some more interesting interactions in the book.
It’s not going to take me more than a week to finish Goldilocks, I believe, and then I’ll start in on Extra Credit. Once finished, I’ll publish the stories on Smashwords, and then on Amazon as a boxed set at the price of Extra Credit alone, so you can kind-of get Goldilocks for free that way.
But I may take my time with that. I’m getting a hankering to essentially redo what I did when I first started publishing books: publish multiple books at once. I want to get Bob’s Mom done, and Executive Masquerade, Grudge Match, and The Great Outdoors and publish them all at once. Maybe Bob’s Mom can be part of an anthology called Milf and Cookies, or something.
We’ll just have to see.
My goal is to publish them all this fall. That’s a realistic goal, even with a significant change in my toolset. I’ll blog about that later.
Wish us all luck!
