Timing is Everything

The learning curve never levels out in this business. Here I am, facing yet another new situation, the juggling of books.

For the first time, I have three long works at different stages. Ebenezer's Locker was delayed in finding a publisher because of my time-wasting agent search. It now has a contract with MuseItUp, but no release date. My adult sci fi is finished and ready to go, and in December I regain rights to my other middle-grade novel, which was never published despite its contract.

My concern is that the novels will bump into each other and make marketing very confusing. But everyone should have such a problem, right? I need to get the sci fi out the door, so it has a chance to cause me a marketing headache!

  2. Wow it sounds like you have a lot going on! I can see how so many things (even if they're good ones) can be overwhelming. Good luck with it all!

  5. Having more than one book to juggle is a good thing. :)
