So, I was thinking that I would start working on The Longbow of Ichabod Brooks when August hit. Just some night work or using days when my parents want to do something with my son. Well, I usually count up the chapter sections and divide by 3 to see how long it will take. I average 19-20 days, which doesn’t include getting anything done on the weekends. This collection is going to take 32-35 days without weekends and barring any distractions. That’s a problem since I still have to edit War of Nytefall: Rivalry and the main series should take precedence. If I jump onto the Ichabod project then I risk setting up another 6 month of crazy work next year. So, what can I do about it?
I can delay the book by a year and take my time writing the 13 short stories. I can do one or two between projects or use next summer to write it. This also feeds my most recent idea of switching between Ichabod and Bedlam for summer releases. After all, Derailing Bedlam was written last year and only needs editing.
So, summer of 2019 might see the return of Cassidy and Lloyd as long as I’m still writing and publishing then. I’m wondering if I should make it a bundle of the first three books instead of just the new one since they never seem to get any attention. This would be a lot more work and it leaves me wondering what to do with the other two that people have already bought. Honestly, I haven’t seen much movement on my Windemere bundles except for the KU free pages. Might just stick with the the one book, but I have time to figure it out.
So, I wanted to just write about the change since I kept talking about Ichabod coming back in 2019. Feel free to voice your opinions though. Hope some people are looking forward to Cassidy and Lloyd coming back with a few familiar faces in tow.
