I would like to have 11 titles for sale by 11/11/11. Writing a novel takes longer than short stories. To meet my goal, I'm setting aside my new mystery novel, KILLING SUMMER, to complete four shorts that are already works-in-progress. Two are horror stories, one is a paranormal romance, and one is science fiction. I get a kick out of Halloween. I'll put the horror stories on Smashwords and Amazon first.
There was a time when I only thought of myself as a mystery writer. Back in the day when I queried every agent under the sun I thought I had to make up my mind which genre I wanted to write in, then stick with it. I realized today, being an Independent Author has changed all of that. I now have the freedom to be whatever a story needs me to be.
