I spent the end of 2011 getting the first two books in The Futhark Chronicles up for sale in the ebook market. After taking back my rights to The Keepers of Sulbreth and Beyond the Gate, I self-published them. It was time consuming as I navigated those paths for the first time. Now I have the third and fourth books to get ready.
On the back burner is my second fantasy series of which I have the first book written and the second book started. I'm researching some small publishers to find a home for it. I long to get back to writing something new but feel I have to do the self-publishing on my other series first.
On top of that, I have a fantasy romance I want to polish up and send to my romance publisher, New Concepts Publishing. And circling around in my head is the plan for another fantasy series. I love starting new projects but I'm swamped with the other stuff.
Do you enjoy diving into a new book or do you like getting that first draft out of the way and then getting into the editing process? How long does it take you for a first draft?
