The Curse of Being So Far Ahead…

So I write fast. Back in my fanfiction days (yep, I used to write fanfic), that wasn’t a real problem but now… it sorta is. I mean, I’m usually years ahead of my publisher. Look at this way: I’ve written a novel called Omnium Gatherum, four volumes of Straw-Man stories, and three Dark Society novels… none of which any of you will see for god know’s how long. By the time they see print, they’ll be way in my rear-view mirror and it’s hard to get excited about it… or to feel that I’m doing good things now when nobody but my editor will read them for years.

It’s frustrating.

That’s not even counting when I contribute to anthologies that are never published because other writers never turn in their stories! It almost makes me want to do the self-publishing thing just to get these stories out there.

One thought on “The Curse of Being So Far Ahead…

  1. It hasn’t been good for you lately. I read your shut out from the Pulp awards. I don’t understand it, you do write excellent pulp books. And not publishing your latest books make no sense to me. I think it time for you to look into self-publishing. (That way I can get to read your books faster. 🙂 )
