I've been thinking a bit, and yes, the title I first had in mind when I started writing my next book stays. It's really funny, but sometimes I just feel something fits and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world. So the title of my next book will be Human. I have no idea what's with me and one word titles, but I love them. If I finish this book how I planned, it will be a stand-alone book and won't turn into series, trilogy or anything like that. Sometimes it's almost impossible not to turn your book into series. It happened to me with Element Preservers because I just couldn't finish Ria's story in Dangerous. There were too many possibilities for new plots and resolving everything in short time would have felt completely unnatural.
I think I mentioned it already in my last post, but I can say again that Human is different from Dangerous
and surprise, surprise, doesn't contain profanity and sexual
situations. Ariel is a very nice character, even though she's only a
year younger than Ria (Element Preservers). She is actually a bit more
like me, but she still does things I'd never do. I won't reveal much
more because I need to finish writing it, and when I do, I'll come up
with a blurb. The only thing I can tell now is that it won't be a book
for people who aren't open-minded when it comes to religion. I'm still
in the process of finding people who will proofread it once it's done.
But since I don't know the exact date when that will be, I'm having a
problem. Anyway, I hope I'll solve this soon. Human should be published in January 2012, and I hope it won't be postponed. I'm not a full-time writer, so I'll see how things go.
I'm doing an experiment with Smashwords because people keep saying it
takes forever to get your price updated everywhere. I changed the price
of Dangerous two days ago, and I'm still waiting for retailers to notice
it. I'll post an update about it when it happens. I know many authors
want to figure this one out since it's important for promotion of other
books, and it would be annoying to wait forever to change the price if
you want it for a specific time only. Dangerous
still hasn't appeared on Kobo, and Sony still doesn't have my overview,
but I suppose price change should come through faster. Maybe Sony
finally realizes I do have an overview.
Have a nice day everyone. I'll go back to writing now.
