#WIP Wednesday: Lot’s Going On!

It’s been a while since my last WIP Wednesday. I have to admit that I haven’t been doing a lot of writing, but I do have a ton going on. A lot of it in my family life, but even more in my writing life.

First, I’m still working on Episode 21 of my Shadow Stalker serial. I’m currently writing Chapter 4, so I’m getting there. I’ve decided with the last few episodes of this serial, I’ll just release them as I write them rather than having set release dates. With my health issues as they are, it just puts less stress on me, and since deciding this I’ve actually been getting more writing done. Yay!

With my future serial, I’m going to write an entire season first (22 episodes which are shorter than the Shadow Stalker episodes), then set a release schedule for each episode, the mini bundles (which will be 4 or 5 episodes each), and the season bundle (which will be all 22 episodes).

The reason I’m doing it this way is so readers don’t have to wait so long in between each episode. I’ll be releasing the individual episodes every two weeks. The price will be set at 25 cents per episode. For people who prefer to buy from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or the other online retailers, I’m putting together the mini bundles since I can’t set the price lower than 99 cents. Those will be released every couple of months or so (depending on how many episodes there are in each).

As far as my novels, I’m still working on A God’s Deception. Rather than just planning out the first book, I’ve decided to plan out the entire series first. I’m also considering writing the entire series before releasing the individual books. There are many advantages to this. One that I really like is that I can make changes to earlier books as I’m writing. One I know most of my readers will like is that I can release the books closer together so there won’t be a long wait between books.

I’m doing a survey now on my newsletter asking my readers their opinion on whether they want me to release the books as I write them, or if they’d prefer waiting until the entire series is written. If you’d like to get a word in on it, sign up below before the end of the month and let me know which you’d prefer.

Also, at the request of my daughter, I’m starting a new middle-grade series based on the daughter of one of my Shadow Stalker characters. I don’t want to say who because I don’t want to give out spoilers for those who haven’t read Shadow Stalker yet. My daughter is a budding artist and will be doing the artwork for this series as well. It’s really exciting for both of us to have a project to work on together.

That’s about it for now. Have a great week and happy reading!

#WIP Wednesday – It’s Great to be Back to Work!

I’ve had a really great week so far. It feels great to be working again, and it’s not taking as long to catch up as I thought it would.

So far this week, I finished writing and editing Episode 20 of my Shadow Stalker serial. I just have to do a few things and it will be reading for release next Wednesday. I’ve also started working on Episode 21 and it should be written and edited by the end of next week.

Episode 22 is due for release in 3 weeks from now, so I’m planning to release them one a week. Then I’ll be all caught up with those.

As a special treat for my readers’ patience and understanding while I was sick, I’m offering Episode 20 free for the first 24 hours to my newsletter subscribers. So if you’d like to get that one free (along with Part 2 (Episodes 7 – 12)), sign up below.

That’s it for now.  Happy reading!

#WIP Wednesday – Don’t Sneeze on Me!

I know… weird title. But it’s totally relevant. I’ve fallen so far behind again thanks to the flu.

Worse, I get sick really easily.

And even worse than that… I have to take a trip into town tomorrow, and I know there are going to be people sneezing, coughing and other nasty things in my proximity.

It can’t be helped though. It’s winter and my daughter needs pants for school, so I’ll brave the germ infested mall and hope I get out of it unscathed.

Needless to say, I haven’t gotten much done recently as far as writing. Episode 21 of my Shadow Stalker serial was due to be released today, and I’m still working on the end of Episode 20. So yeah… I’m getting there, but it definitely won’t be on time.

I’ve decided I’m just going to release things as I finish them for now… at least until flu season is over. I do have a short story I wrote last year (forgot about it completely) that I’ll hopefully be releasing on the 21st. It just needs a bit of editing (and a cover). And I hope I’ll have Episodes 20 and 21 finished before the end of the month. That’s what I’m shooting for anyway. We’ll see how it goes.

I did start working on my new serial a little while I was sick. It’s going to be fun to write. I’m doing it a lot differently than Shadow Stalker. For one, it’s not going to have a definitive ending. Each year I plan to write a new season of 22 episodes, and I’ll keep writing until people get sick of it (or I run out of story ideas). Also, the episodes are going to be much shorter, but I’ll be releasing a new one every two weeks, so readers won’t have to wait nearly as long.

I’ll be writing these well in advance too (in fact, I’ll be halfway finished with season one by the end of this year), so getting them released in time shouldn’t be an issue.

I’ve put my novels on hold until I’m caught up with the serial episodes though. But I’m nearly ready to get started on the writing.
