The not-quite final countdown

I’ve had Bloody Banquet, the sequel to Awfully Appetizing, more or less ready to go for quite some time now.  It isn’t perfect, but it’s as good as it’s likely to get until I find or make a nice peer review critique group.

For the past year, give or take, I’ve been sitting on it, hoping that Awfully Appetizing would take off, get me a few new followers, and maybe make enough to pay for the cover of book two.

Unfortunately I just can’t wait any longer.  As a friend recently reminded me, I’m supposed to be building a body of work.  More books is better, and, if I’m honest about it, I’ve let this absurd ‘wait for success’ distract me from what being an author is all about: writing.

So my objective is clear.  I need to publish Bloody Banquet.  And soon.  By the end of the year, if at all possible.

I’m going to have to go through it one more time, send it out to a couple of beta readers, buy a cover for it, and figure out how to format it so that I can publish it.  I have to admit, I’m a little nervous about the whole thing.

But it’s time.  It’s definitely time.  Hopefully I’ll have book three out early in 2017.

  1. Just read your first book after you posted on Reddit. Just keep writing, publishing and keep promoting, people will find you eventually! I did, and I enjoyed the book very much 😉
