Pretty sure I mentioned this just the other day, but I wanted to go a bit more in depth here, as instead of the regular installment of the ongoing Wonderland, I’m doing… this.
So, long story short, Wonderland has attracted the attention of a small, indie press, that is interested in seeing what the final product is going to look like. This was not something I had planned for.
Me and plans don’t go well together. I know I’ve mentioned that.
Anyway, once any kind of publisher says hey, this looks cool, you kind of need to stop sharing it for free. So, no more Wonderland until we know if we have an arrangement or not. If not, then I go back to the old plan of sharing it here, and later, releasing the first arc on Kindle for a really cheap price. Like, as cheap as I can get it, without it being totally free, cause I do like to make money, even if it’s a tiny amount.
If we do, well, then you can be expecting to see Wonderland pop up again, and for me to shamelessly try to convince you to go buy it for somewhat more than almost free, then tell me how awesome I am. Cause I like to hear that now and then.
Here’s the thing. I really did not expect this to happen. War Witch is kind of serious fantasy in a more classical sense, but wonderland? Yeah, that’s just weird. I honestly did not expect any kind of publisher to find it appealing because of how weird it is. Readers, maybe. Publishers, not even.
I mean, I turned a Beholder into a civil servant. Who does that? I mean, and still expects to be taken seriously?
Well, okay, me, but I don’t think I’m a good example.
Anyway, point is, Wonderland is going on hiatus until I know which way the wind is going to blow on this. Right now, it’s just a tentative maybe. Regardless, you don’t shit where you live, so here we are.
Me scrambling to plug a two week hole on my blog on Wednesday.
No idea what I’m gonna do just yet. I guess we’ll see. Petalwynd will be up next week, but after that, I really have no idea what I’m going to do, if I do anything, as I suddenly have two manuscripts to finish.
Yes, I know. The irony. It does not escape me.
For now, I’m just gonna knuckle down, get Wonderland’s first arc finished, get more done on the second War Witch installment, and figure out what I’m doing here somewhere in between. We’ll see how that goes.
I’m betting poorly. Cause I am not good at juggling things.
Man, I tell ya, it never rains but it pours. While I’m actually really okay with this situation, and I’m certainly not complaining about it, it just kind of makes me wonder how the hell it happened, ya know?
Leave it to me to fall ass backwards into a possible book deal.
Okay, so, that’s why no Wonderland, and no anything else, either. Cause I literally have not figured out what the hell I’m doing. I’ve been too preoccupied working on Wonderland to really think about much of anything. Much less what the hell I’m gonna do here.
I guess what I’m getting at folks is, to borrow God’s final message to creation, sorry for the inconvenience.
Hey, Hitchhiker’s Guide joke. That’s worth something, yeah?
