So - I'm almost finished with another novel (I have maybe a week or two's worth of work before I get to editing), and I was wondering a few things. Maybe you all can help me out in the comments section.
First, what do you all think of a short story anthology featuring my previously published work in addition to a new story or two? If you're wondering about the quality of said work, please see MY PAGE ON FICTIONMANIA. I was thinking of taking the non-Omar Bell stories, and combining them into a single volume to be published on Amazon.
My issue is that, first, I'm not completely sold on the quality. I could edit them, rewriting the weak parts, but that may prove to be more work than it's worth. Second, I don't know if there's a market for that sort of compilation. My instinct tells me that there is, but I'm not a hundred percent sure.
Which brings me to the next question - is there a market for the Omar Bell stories? If so, I'd love to publish the whole series in one volume.
My thought process is that publishing these two ideas may allow me to reach a few more readers than I normally would. That said, I don't know that I want work of questionable quality (in the case of the non-Omar Bell stories) or controversial material representing me to potential readers. So I ask you all (being that you represent the target demographic) - what do you think?
And lastly, what genre do you all think I should focus on next? I'm developing a mind-control story as my next project (the one that's just about finished). I have a life-swap story outlined, and I'm nearly ready to begin writing an age-regression story. I have a few other ideas (one that focuses on fraternity sissies springs to mind). Of course, I'm also planning a deep science fiction story that involves time travel and a gender role-reversed future (it's the continuation of the timeline which began in An Experiment).
However, even amidst those ideas, I'm always eager to hear your suggestions. So suggest away!
Oh - and one more thing! Thanks for being fans! For that, you get an extra caption for today!
