Here I thought I would have Revenge done editing before my hubby made the cover. Well I guess not. I have only edited five chapters so far. Now that might not seem like much but in this book the chapters are longer than they were in Endings. The edit is making the story longer. Yes I know most editing is removing but as i tend to be short I actually am writing in things. Filling out the fragments that I have a bad tendency to write.
As I go through this I realize that while Endings had some intense drama with some character lose Revenge is darker. This book goes more into Loralil’s mind and her journey through the darkness in there. As one seeks revenge it is expected. She needs to work out this stuff so she can go on to become what her parents wanted for her.
The advantage and disadvantage of being an elf is the years they live. As they live so much longer than the mayfly humans it takes them longer to work through things but it gives them a chance to work through what would stop a human. I have ten other tales that I could write for her. Now some of them will probably never see the light of day and others will be combined but it shows how deep a character she is.
And yes I plan on each book getting longer. No I probably won’t charge more for each. After all this is a series. Pricing is something I struggle with. There is a lot of discussion on the boards that this or that amount is the kiss of death on a book. Most of my stories are 99 cents but that is because they are just that. Short stories should not cost the reader too much IMO. Yes once I combine the collections together into one book that book will cost probably $5.99 each. When it will be a minimum of six stories and more likely eight each it is a good price. And of course they will be paperback.
Now why did I decide that you ask? (okay probably not) Well I have yet to sell a paperback and this might not be a good idea but I want to see them in that format. So I will yes put them out that way first. And then maybe go the ebook collection route. Okay yes I will and I will decide the price then. So many stories!
