Did you know you had not one, but TWO chances to win a free copy of my book, Dr. Fell and the Playground of Doom? It’s true!
Fandom Monthly Magazine and YA Books Central are each hosting giveaways on their sites–literally giving my book away!
My advice to you is to take advantage of their foolishness before they realize what they’re doing. Hurry! They’re bound to find out eventually.
In other news, I’m trying to decide what to write next. Do I write something new or go back into one of my preexisting worlds? I sway back and forth in my mind, with a number of different projects vying for attention. There are pros and cons to each approach.
Pro: I love new things. Exploring a new universe. Meeting new characters. Creating new adventures.
Con: I’ve put a lot of work into the worlds of Dr. Fell, Beyond the Doors, and Book Three. Now I’m gonna go and do it all over again?
Pro: My imagination gets to run wild. What interests me today? A forest of rotting trees? Schools filled with slime? THE Dr. Edward Virgil Ignatius Lance?
Con: Each new book is one more book between a current title and its sequel. What if people lose interest in Dr. Fell or one of my other titles before I get around to a sequel?
Return to One of My Preexisting Worlds
Pro: A return to an old friend. I love my characters, I’m excited to play with them again.
Con: What if I write a sequel, then learn the publisher isn’t interested in a sequel? Is that time and work wasted?
Pro: Dr. Fell has more adventures in him. Book Three is specifically set up for sequels. Strike while the iron is hot!
Con: The danger of unconsciously writing the same book over again. It worked once, what if I end up creating the same thing and fooling myself into thinking it’s different?
Not the world’s biggest dilemma, I know. But it’s where my mind’s at.
