In general, I’m a woman of my word. If I say I’m going to do something, you can trust that it will absolutely happen…and it will happen on time.
When it comes to my e-book releases, it’s a whole different story. Or maybe I should say it’s no story, as the books aren’t getting completed as planned.
It’s not that I’m not trying. I fully intend to get those books online when I say I will. It just isn’t happening. The stories aren’t the way I want them to be. Rushing to meet a deadline I created isn’t helping.
I’ve decided to stop stressing myself out. I’m going to do my best to write good stories and not get caught up in deadlines. I’m going to relax and write when I feel the urge. It’ll take the pressure off, and hopefully, get the creative juices flowing better.
This new plan means I won’t release Once Haunted, Twice Shy until next year. Instead, I’ll finish A Most Unusual Hexplanation and get that online in October 2020. That shouldn’t be a major challenge because that book is about 80 percent done.
If my muse cooperates, it should happen. If she doesn’t, I’ll have to create an embarrassing post about missing yet another planned release date.
