Why not Sooner?
You may notice that I’ve set a publishing deadline of one book per year. And my serial novels are staggered, so that it’s two years between sequels. Why?
I’m not a full-time writer… yet. While I aspire to that lofty position one day, that day is not today. I still have to work a 40-hour a week job, plus spend 1.5 hours commuting every day. What time is left over after that gets put into my books, my short stories, and my blog. I feel that one novel a year is plenty ambitious. As all of these books are in the first draft stage–or later–I feel I can turn them into reasonably good books within a year’s time.
They’re staggered both because I get tired of working on the same thing all the time, and because I want to publish a little variety. People who read vampire novels and those who read historical fiction are not often in the same circles of readers. By having two such series out, I nearly double my readership. And while the wait for the next book may seem interminable, there’s always my blog and short stories (I plan on releasing about 3 a year) to whet the appetite.
But, if I end up writing part-time, or even full-time, expect to see publication dates for everything move up.
