First of all, a bit of promotional business:
“When Mary Left” is now in Kindle Unlimited, so if you’re in that or have Amazon Prime, you can read it for free! Otherwise, the story is 99 cents.
To celebrate the short story being out, Pearl is on Kindle Countdown for a bit.
So, what’s next?
Well, I’m still working on the draft of the Victorian story. It’s going to take a bit, I’m going to try not to rush it.
I signed up for NaNoWriMo the other day. Instead of writing 50,000 words of dreck (as I’ve done in the past), I’m going to write a bunch of short stories, maybe a novella. I plan on revising them and releasing them or submitting them to whatever next year. Basically, I’m writing myself a backlog
I have a few ideas:
-A story about Julius, Pearl’s brother.
-A story based on a marriage certificate I found: an Englishman and an Asian woman get married in Nagasaki, Japan in 1895.
-A weird speculative idea I’ve had in the my head for a bit: when the economy collapses and the government sucks and everyone in New York City lives in a fitting room-sized apartment.
-A sweet romance story, possibly culled from an old defunct story I wrote last year.
-A WWI story
-A story about Miles Keegan’s second wife?
Are you doing NaNo this year? What are you going to write?
