What with Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned finally (FINALLY, FINALLY) reaching completion and getting ready for publication in the coming month or two, it's high time I dropped some hints about what other changes are in store for Chez Genji.
AONO itself. That part you saw coming. But when it drops, I'll be offering some opportunities to pick up a copy of the book either at a steep discount or totally free.
Once a month, going forward, I'll be offering limited-time discounts on a book selected from the catalog by way of a highly sophisticated stochastic algorithm known as "Pot Luck". The time window on these is likely to be very short — a day or two at most! — so move fast.
I'm also going to be partnering with a number of outfits like InstaFreebie to provide giveaways as a way to further drum up interest and readership. I haven't done much, if any, work in this vein, and so it's high time I tried it out and see where it leads. Look for the tag giveaways to highlight such things.
Finally, I have two, possibly three, works on the front burner contending for being written next. I'd like to keep the timeframe on their production reasonably short. The last few books took far too long, and there were several reasons for that: Vajra was just a monster of a book; Welcome To The Fold was being written around the same time I was relocating cross-country; and AONO also ended up being long-ish (although not Vajra long) and written atop some things going on in my life that I'd rather not go on about in public. The next ones are intended to be shorter, more in the 120-150K word range, and written on a schedule to match.
Ideally, I'd like to go to a one-book-a-year schedule, which was the design I set for myself when I founded Genji Press some twelve years ago (jeezy creezy, has it really been that long?!). I don't know if I can actually live up to that kind of self-imposed rigor, but I can sure try.
