Last Thursday, Protecting Bedlam came to an end on this blog. The summer into fall adventure of Cassidy and Lloyd didn’t really net much in terms of sales. Still, a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who read to the end, are still reading to the end, bought one of the previous adventures, and reblogged. I really appreciate that since this is a project I love writing, but seem to get little back for in terms of response.
This brings up the question of what to do next. I would normally be publishing Derailing Bedlam in February since it’s written and only needs to be edited and given a cover. Yet, this isn’t cheap and money is getting tight. 2018 will see the start of a new series and the stand alone from Legends of Windemere. Bedlam is in a category where people love the idea, talk about it when it’s on the blog, and then nothing happens in terms of sales to justify putting money behind it. Maybe I can just pay for the cover and do all free publishing. The problem there is that I such a thing would involve a lot of guest posts, but I’ll be having the first War of Nytefall book coming out in April and it might be too soon to be guest so close together.
Anyway, I’d be happy to hear what people think. I know I should be confident and publish my finished projects like many authors do. Yet, this is becoming an issue of funds and the previous books getting very little traction. So, what do people think?
