Here's the deal. I love the kind of slice-of-life fiction that I write. It still remains one of my most favorite things to write. I love to create complex characters and have them thrown into what could seem like everyday or ordinary situations and see how they deal.
But something happened to me when I wrote LESSONS AND OTHER MORBID DRABBLES.
I had so much fun writing it, and to see how many copies I sold within only a few weeks, I knew that I was doing something right. It's my most well-received work as of now. I've heard nothing but great comments about it. Sure, it's not for everybody and I know there will be some who'll pass on it, but for the most part people seem to be enjoying it.
I love my other stuff... but I can't ignore the success of LESSONS. Yes, sales have slowed a bit, but it's still outselling everything else.
I wrote a few drabbles today. Let's just say... you knew I had to bring back Mr. Giggles. *evil grin*
Chances are I will be coming out with a collection sometime in the near future. I was putting the idea off for a while, for fear of not being able to live up to LESSONS. However, that's not the way to approach it. I should just focus on putting out a great and entertaining collection. It doesn't have to be better than LESSONS. So long as I believe in the stories and I think it stays true to what I want to accomplish, then that's all that matters.
So, that's what I'll be working on. No worries, I'm still working on the novella. It's not going as fast as I would like it to, but I have some new ideas and am working on them.
