These two stories will be in one of the two planned anthologies for the Magical Romantic Comedy (with a body count) series. Why are they not being placed in the main series?
All the stories in the main series have something to do with the end game for the series. These two stories are fun continuations, but the plot important series stuff is concluded for these characters.
As such, they will be in extra material collections, AKA anthologies.
I do not know when the anthologies will be done. (Please don’t ask, I simply don’t know. I have a bunch of series to finish first.)
I only write so fast. That pace, generally, is 50,000 words a month on the main project, and if my emotional health allows, more. But I set a stately pace of a healthy (for me) 50k a month. My entire schedule has been planned this way for my deadlines.
I am not going to run myself into the ground/kill myself overworking, so please don’t ask that of me.
The only reason there are so many preorders up is because I had so many ‘side’ projects hit the ‘this is close enough to warrant putting into the main line’ stage of being written… all at one time. Which is what happens when I flirt with 10+ different projects open on my computer at a time and allow myself to be freeeeeee~
Currently, Doggone Mess is way out of hand, it’s well over 120k words now, I will need to price change that puppy over release week, and I had wanted to be done by now so I could spend the rest of the month playing.
But no, the characters are assholes, Lucifer keeps giving me more work to do because these things need done in THIS book so I can do things in future books, because this one sets up one of the future heroines.
And then I decided that (insert thing) would be fun but the only place I can fit said thing is if I do it in the resolution of the book. AKA, the last chapter.
No, I’m not okay. This is a writer problem, and I will sit here, drink my coffee, and enjoy screaming at my computer scream over having been the UTTER MONSTER who planned this.
“I can keep this to around 100-120k,” I said.
Fuck no you can’t, bitch.
With much love,
