I want to show you something I wrote up last night. After thinking about my writing history, I realized one major thing. When I first started writing, I wrote a novel, then I turned to serials for my erotic romance, Luna. Flat out, my serials were more popular than my novels, but for some reason, I bent to this weird pressure I felt to write novels instead of books with cliffhanger endings.
You can see my timeline here:
There are a couple novels here and there, but mostly it’s serials. Many of those novels took me at least a year to write. Fact is, I didn’t run out of story ideas; you should see my idea folder or the stories I’ve started. I simply can’t manage to write full novels and finish them in a timely manner to release at least once a year.
It took me years to finish With One Last Kiss and that’s not even an HEA romance; it’s a tragic one and my favorite part is the ending. Surprise, only a few people have read that one, which is a shame, because it’s one of my favorites. All the Way and Bend the Rules are novellas, written quickly for me to try to get something published. They are good short reads!
All this to say… I’m going back to serials. They worked for me, they make me happy as a writer, and it is my preferred way of writing. I’ll be doing what I always did in the past: unless part 1 is free, it will be 99 cents; #2 will be 1.99, and #3 will be 2.99. I understand some readers won’t pay almost $6.00 for an eBook, but I typically make #1 free when #2 is published so I will probably follow that model once again. You can wait for that to happen, you can refuse to read the story until it is complete, or you can wait until I combine them into one book. It’s up to you. I just want to write and be happy while doing it! The prices will also depend on length — full length novels (40k+ words) will be a minimum $2.99.
Lastly, for today, I want to thank my readers. You kept me going for years and I love each and every one of you. I hope you’ll support me in whatever way works best for you as I return to where I started because I’m itching to write, itching to give those who love cliffhangers books that take their breath away… and I can’t wait for you to see the wonderful stories I’ve got waiting to be told.
Until next time,
PS: my two novellas, Refuge and Revive, have recently been put into one complete volume because as a whole, it is a romance story. You can find out more by clicking here. Have a great day & stay safe!
