A blog about trying to become a published novelist from an Indie Author. You'll find advice, humor, and stories about what I've learned from my own mistakes, as well as great advice I've gotten from other authors. It's a long road that keeps on going, but the things you'll see and experience along the way can be very interesting.
My life has grown more complicated and I need you my readers to help me decide a course of action to take.
Yesterday, I attended an Orientation for the California State University of Monterey Bay, which I will be entering this Fall. I will be pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree in Collaborative Health andHuman Services. The plan is for me to attend for 3 full years instead of just 2. This will allow us tocontinue residing on campus in very comfortable housing, provided I take 12 units a semester.
However, a wrinkle occurred yesterday when I signed up for classes. I wound up with 15 units because there were certain classes I HAVE to take before the Spring semester, so I had to bite the bullet on this semester. Future semesters will be kept to 12 or so units.
This greater workload now presents me with a dilemma. Originally, I was planning to get the first installment of “THE VAMPYRE BLOGS” out this December. Unfortunately, I’m hearing form various folks who have recently read “THE SHIP” and are eager for me to continue with the characters from this part of the series (Cassie, Julie, Alex and Veronica). The next installment of their story “THE DOOR” will wrap up a number of plot lines that have been running throughout the first 2 books. “THE DOOR” will not mean an end for these characters by any means. I’ll be using them more, but the major underlying sub-plot which involves a white-haired individual and the secret of Brandon would finally be explained.
On the other hand, I know there’s a growing crowd eager for “THE VAMPYRE BLOGS”, however that story line seems to be growing even bigger than I originally planned and may have to be told in 2 or more installments. Originally, I had planned to unveil “THE VAMPYRE BLOGS” this December, but with it growing larger and larger I’m not sure I can keep this deadline.
This brings me to a dilemma. Knowing I’ll have less time to work from August to December, which book should I concentrate on?
Both “THE DOOR” and “THE VAMYPRE BLOGS” are part way finished. Which one would you all like to see come out this December? Please leave your comments below and help me decide, thank you.
Looking forward to hearing your input. Until next time, keep writing…
