I just finished looking at Blazing Owl Press’ output for 2018. Terri published four issues of her Owl’s Eye View Magazine. She also published two collections of children’s stories, one of which is novel length. The other one is also a meaty collection. Me? I published a Halloween collection of around 17,000 words. I rather like this collection, but it’s all I published for the entire year. Does this mean I’ve been lying about and not writing anything? Not really. I not only wrote a novel for NaNo, but I wrote two others for Camp NaNo. Terri also wrote a novel for NaNo, amongst other things.
So, in 2019 we’ll be publishing some of these projects, as well as others. As I mentioned earlier this year, I shortened my Halloween collection and said I’d be publishing a number of shorter collections, as well as single short stories for 99 cents. The first of these is scheduled to come out next month. One of my rather horrific collections will be coming out in February. I have a novel coming out, probably in March. I fully intend to release a short story, a collection, or a novel every month this year. Terri also has a rather ambitious schedule.
While most of our work will be horror, we will be adding in other genres. Terri has already started with children’s books. I will have at least one, perhaps even two, running books. Detective books will be popping up. Non-fiction books are on our agenda. I will have a Fantasy novel. I will also be adding in more sci-fi tales. Once we decide how we want to do this, Terri and I both want to add commentary and editorial style books. And, Terri and I will be concocting all kinds of art.
As you can see, nothing is off the plate as far as we’re concerned.
All this will take considerable time, so our social media time will be shortened. Facebook has become a rather toxic time-suck, so we’re cutting our time down there. I like Twitter. It’s easy to post there, and I enjoy retweeting other authors’ books. I used to post daily on our website. I will probably post once a week now. The posts will be longer, but they won’t be in your face every day. I’m seeing a lot more of that lately with other authors.
So, this is our agenda for the new year.
Busy, busy, busy!
