Thank you so much for joining us on Maud’s journey. We loved having you along for the ride. It is truly a unique experience and we are so grateful to be a part of it.
Some of you are asking what’s next and when. Next we are taking a break from Innkeeper for a little bit. We have contractual work and continuation of our other self-published work, and the Innkeeper, while a labor of love, doesn’t sell quite as well as Hidden Legacy, KD, or Hugh.
Maud’s “novella” cleared 70K mark, so it is actually a full length novel. Unlike most of the Innkeeper novels, which are mostly unchanged when they go to publication, because this was originally a novella, it needs to be extensively edited. It has some pacing and consistency issues. 🙂 So we expect to end up with a somewhat different book at the end.
This wasn’t the plan, but remember, you are reading an unedited first draft and in this case we need to tighten and alter some things to make this ready for publication. Arland and Maud’s relationship won’t change and we will retain all of your favorite funny moments. Because of this, there is no ETA on publication at this time. I would estimate a month of work at least to whip this into shape. At this point, we are not quite sure when we can carve this month out. We are aiming at publication some time in 2019.
So for now, the blog will revert to more mundane things, such as Christmas tree decorating and deep discussions on merits of different types of chocolate.
Once again, thank you for the privilege. We hope you enjoyed travelling into outer space with us. 🙂
