This year has been a tough one. As you all know, I’m an ageless fictional character who is forever a young, happening dude.
However, my friend the Alleged Man turned 38 and that has been hard on him. He is realizing that the window for him to do all he wanted to do in life is getting shorter so if he’s going to do something he’d better do it.
So I’m taking a page out of his playbook.
At this time I have three completed first drafts: 1) Toilet Gator 2) Zom Fu 3) How the West Was Zombed.
Actually, Zom Fu has a few chapters left but it is substantially done.
I think at this point I have to put what is written above what is not written and get these three polished and published.
How the West Was Zombed worries me most. It began as the first book in a series but as time went on I pictured it as book three. But at best I think I can get like one draft of a book written a year and I don’t want to wait 2 more years so I think I will release How the West Was Zombed as Book 1 and then if people like it I will change it to Book 3 and release the first 2.
Or perhaps I’ll divide the series into “Zombie Westerns” and “Zombie Western Prequels.” Zombed can be the first book of the Zombie Western Series. Later, I’ll write Remember the Zombamo and that can be the first of the prequels.
It could be better to wait and put them all out at once but I just don’t think I have the time to wait anymore. If this self publishing thing is going to happen it must happen soon.
What say you, 3.5?
