and it's more "mine" that way- and I like that.
When it comes time, i will be going to the conventions sitting at a table selling the books.. it just means I get to go to more conventions! and my Shards of the glass slipper book booth will be awesome, if my artshow display I've done is any indication. but I have the chops to push the book on the internet, and through e-readers and amazon etc. I will try and embrace more of the 1st century options than the dusty, this is how we always do it, traditional publish route. The more and more traditional publishing companies that are struggling nowadays, the less likely someone like me will have a chance to be published. plus, there's a great quote on a website i visit that say something like
and now initial work begins on the follow up story. As I've said from the start… this is a fairy tale EPIC. Shards was designed as a 3 book arc. Shards "book 1" only serves to setup the main story and character introductions. Shards "Book 2" gets into the bigger picture and epicness of it all.
So now I have to start jotting down notes, so I can keep up as I finish off book 1.
The tone for book 2 will be a lot darker and more gruesome. I will say that a secondary character introduced in book 1 is now the focus of book 2, however, the story structure will be as much set in the present of the story as it is telling two other stories from different time periods in sort of two different sets of flashbacks. The story from book 1 carries over almost without pause.
now begins a big push to get this going.
