So it’s been a busy six and a half months. Immutable came out on Wednesday and that was my forth release of the year! That’s been a lot of editing, and deadlines. I think I have release fatigue. 😀
Now I’m in a phase where I don’t have any contracted unreleased books. Which is a weird situation for us writers. On the one hand there’s a sense of freedom to get on with the new stuff, set my own timetable, and not have to worry that publisher edits will drop on me right when I’m in the middle of a purple patch of writing a draft. On the other hand, it leaves one a bit nervous, with that little nagging voice suggesting I night never sell another book to a publisher again. So in the past it’s always been a big relief when I’ve sold one and I’ve got a pending release.
Right now I have a completed novella draft and an in the middle of a novel draft – a sequel to Patient Z! The next draft – to write during NaNoWriMo is starting to tickle my brain. I think it will be around mid to late August before I have the novella ready to submit, so I’m going to try to make the most of this phase of freedom, even if it is nervous making, before I start the nailbiting phase of having a story on submission and then – I HOPE – have those publisher edits and deadlines again.
