2014 is six days old and I am taking stock of 2013 and what I want to do during this year. During 2013 I published 40+ titles. Now that seems like a lot, doesn’t it? After all most writers do one or two novels a year but I mostly don’t write novels right? I released short stories, novels, novellas, novellets an poetry collections. While that is a lot of titles other than lifting my profile I am not sure I have attracted a lot of attention.
Some of my titles are doing really good. My two newest titles are doing a lot better than almost every other title so far. Traveler has had four downloads as of this morning…that is for 2014 an Angels has seven. Not a huge amount right? Well considering that November and December were banner months for me with my highest total sales so far since I started selling my work. If things keep going the way they have January will clock the same way, I hope.
Now about new works. I have a lot in the tubes. With my new years resolution to complete the work in at least one of my pending folders I will have a lot of work to do. The folder I am hoping to complete I have labeled as Novels. Now that doesn’t mean he titles will work out to be novels but it does mean that they are all ready past the short story stage. I am working on and urban fantasy, then another paranormal and then a science fiction or three. Of course i expect that in the next year will be struck by the sudden need to write more short fiction. in fact I have eleven finished short stories that are pending release. Most of them are meant for anthologies but as those books seem to be on back burners I just might release them all myself.
They are all parts of my various short story series. Now I might sit down over the next few weeks and make covers for them, or that is the plan. After all covers are what I do right? so if I make the covers and release these books you might want to look for new titles by me over on places like Smashwords, Kobo, Barnes & Noble or ITunes. While in the past two months I got most of my sales via amazon there is nothing wrong with the other sites. In fact if I look at my most popular titles over on places like Apple, Barnes and Noble and Sony they are mostly my free stories. Yes those odd little tales that I have a handful up for your reading pleasure.
I doubt I will be doing anymore free titles. I think having seven free titles is enough to tease you gentle readers. Okay I will probably put up one more. My drabbles. I am planning on collecting them together and putting the images with them in a nice little book…maybe. We will see. 2014 is looking like it will be a busy year.
