When I finished Book 2 of the Peachville High Demons series, I decided to call Book 3 SHADOW DEMONS. My thought at the time was that since I introduced more about the shadow demons in book 2, then naturally book 3 would take that a little further. I also had one specific plot plan that just hasn’t made its way into the book yet. I’m thinking that what I originally thought book 3 would be about is going to be pushed a little bit more into Book 4.
Sooooooo… I’m thinking that the title SHADOW DEMONS doesn’t quite fit anymore with the actual book. That’s one peril of choosing a title before I’ve written the book, haha. I’m thinking of possible titles for this book, but I don’t want to write about the plot since it needs to stay a secret until after the book actually comes out. But, what I’m thinking is that instead of keeping the title as _____ Demons, maybe this time it would be good to make a title that is Demons _______. Like Demons Spirit. or Demons Pride.
I’m so close to being finished with the rough draft of the book, and then comes the hard part – revisions to make it really shine. I’ve been stretching myself as a writer trying to keep up with this rigorous schedule I’ve set for myself. Releasing a new book every 2 months? Sure, if I had them all already written that would be much easier. But the hard part is that I’m writing these books as I go. When one book comes out, the next book needs to be written. I know I don’t have an editor or a publishing contract telling me I have a set deadline, but I have set my own deadlines. Where a regular publisher hardly ever expects more than one or two books a year, I’m demanding five or six books from myself a year. But I know I’m capable of writing them. If I ever feel like the quality isn’t up to my own standards, I won’t push forward with publication just to make the deadline.
Anyway, my point is that I’m pushing myself to be the very best writer I can be and to write the best books I can as fast as possible. Book 3 is on schedule to be published by February 23rd. It’s probably going to have a different title than I originally planned, but it’s what inside that counts, right?
