This is not normally something I consider doing, but things change, etc, etc. I won’t go into details beyond “I’m changing things up and destressing myself at the same time.”
Would you be all right if Vampire of Montana was released in April instead of May?
I want to be lazy, Vampire is with the editor now, so it will be ready easily for April, and I just don’t want to deal with two books at once. Dropping Vampire early is a destresser. I DO love doing dual releases on my birthday, but after spending most of December sick as hell with RSV, I’m heavily reevaluating how I handle things.
BUT, I also understand how budgeting IS a serious issue, and unexpected “oh this book is coming earlier” can be a money issue.
So, pitch in. Would an April release date for Vampire be something you’re okay with?
(And no, Doggone Mess is NOT up for April release consideration. I’m not done working on it yet.)
