Well, June certainly was a big month. The second volume’s rollout took up a lot of my energy, but sold fairly well. I would have liked for there to be a larger spike in sales with people buy the first two volumes as a pair (especially since the first volume was on such a major discount), but what can you do? I’m glad I got the sales I did, and I’m even more glad that hassle is over with until volume three is finished … which won’t be for a while.
I also set up a nice little Patreon account that might help ease the burden of my limited financial success, but I’m not counting on it, if we’re being honest. It’s there, though, so if you’re reading this and want to support me to make sure volume three arrives in a timely manner, that’s the best way to do it. After all, after how volume two left off, you have to be pretty eager to see what comes next, right? (Okay, okay. I’ll stop.)
To be honest, the current project isn’t volume three, but a new side story I’ve been meaning to get started on for ages. It’s proving harder to bring to life than I first anticipated, as my initial characterization of people didn’t make them feel real enough to me. Anyone who has read my books, especially the second volume, know how important realistic character motivations are to me, and that applies to any story I write. It’ll take some work and a bit of time, but I’m hoping for the best, so you should, too!
That’s about it. Sorry this was a bit late coming out, but it can get like that around the holidays. Also, I thought about moving all my blog posts to the Patreon account as a treat for anyone who is donating, but there isn’t anyone doing that yet, so I figured it was unnecessary. It’s not out of the question yet, but I’ll let you know if anything changes. Until next time, stay safe and healthy!
