I posted this same question on my Facebook page, but since I know not everyone digs Facebook, I wanted to ask it here, too: what, as a reader, would you most like to see me work on next?
I know that I’ve been leading people to expect the next book of the First Empress saga, Mistress Of The Ages. Unfortunately, in reviewing the sales figures, it turns out that the sales of From Chaos Born (which is now free as an ebook) and Forged In Flame are the lowest of the pack, half of what I’m seeing for the other In Her Name books.
Now, I’m not solely driven by money; few, if any, authors are. But since my book royalties are my family’s sole source of income, sales are a factor that I have to take into account. Like it or not, this is a business, after all.
So, just for the sake of argument and to see what you think, what would you like most?
A) Mistress of the Ages (yes, I may still go ahead and do it next, but even if I didn’t, at some point in the next year I’d likely finish off Keel-Tath’s story);
B) More in or before the timeline of the Redemption Trilogy with Reza and Esah-Zhurah, or perhaps what happens leading up to their story;
C) Something completely different. I’ve got a lot of other project ideas queued up that I’d like to inflict on you!
So, comment away and let me know your thoughts. I haven’t decided anything at this point – I’m dithering and need serious help! LOL!
