Happy New Year!
Those of you who have followed my blog for a while would have known that I pulled out of an anthology series before and well, this is the closure post on that. After all, to move forward, we need to close the chapter on some of the stuff from the past holding us back, right? This is what I have in mind in this post where I am going to talk about my plans for the two pieces of my work that was published in that anthology.
In the short term, I am going to publish both pieces on my blog. I think that is also as far as I want to take the collaborative piece (note: I posted an excerpt of this piece’s start earlier. The story is called the Labour of an Empress and my co-author had fully ceded this piece to me to do as I see fit) to. While I am pleasantly surprised by how much further the collaboration took my initial idea (an idea that I was not too excited about) to, I have no further ambition for it so I am content to leave it as-is and move onto other projects.
As for my solo piece A Thread of Chance which I had been turning to a novella, I might turn it into a novel series one day (I do have ideas simmering for that that I have taken down scattered notes on). But it won’t be any time very recent in the future. And for the novella, I was playing with the idea of publishing it on Amazon but now I no longer have the energy or enthusiasm to do so.
Stay tuned for next week when I release the Labour of an Empress up on the blog! It’s not quite a standard short story and I’m curious about what you all think.
