I have finished the first draft of Chance Inheritance and am vacillating between melancholy and joy. The happiness from the accomplishment is offset by a near mourning for the characters. Saying goodbye to them is tough. When I finished Music of Souls, I felt this way somewhat, however, I knew there was a possibility for a sequel one day and I could once again enmesh myself in the character’s lives. Chance Inheritance will not have a sequel, so I need to let them go. I won’t post the quote about “parting”; it’s too cliche, but true.
Chance will be undergoing edits for a few weeks, and then will be uploaded to Amazon Kindle books. I have decided to enroll it in their KDP select program, which offers limited marketing. The terms for the service require an exclusive, so I will be unable to post the entire manuscript anywhere else. I will post samples here, on Wattpad, Authonomy and Public bookshelf with links to the Kindle store. The book will cost $1.99, but will be available for free once a month. Anyone who subscribes to my Random Rants will be notified of the free dates.
Stay tuned for updates. 😉
