So, first relatively normal post in a while.
For obvious reasons, the last couple weeks haven’t been particularly productive for me. However, now that things have calmed down, I’m back to writing and I think things are finally returning to normal. I’m not yet ready to announce what the next release will be, since I want to remain flexible, but it’s shaping up to be quite long, probably in the 80K words range once it gets completed (so full novel length). It should be really, really cool.
I had planned to release something new last week, the Sequel to Hypnotic Condition. For obvious reasons, that plan had to be adjusted. I’m still planning to release it, but only after I can post Hypnotic Condition here on my blog, so that people can read the first part, if they’re so inclined. Despite being blocked, the story is still technically part of KDP, which means that Amazon could easily give me problems for posting it elsewhere. I’d rather not take the risk.
It also looks like the sales recommendations are also really wonky. I think pulling the titles reset them, which is annoying, because now the top recommendations for people who buy my books are books that aren’t mine. Hopefully that works itself out, or as I release new stuff it normalizes. I know I get a lot of exposure from people who read one book and want to read another.
Overall, I’m just hoping that the whole sordid mess is behind me, and I can get back to doing what I really want to do, which is write and release fun stories for you to read.
