Scheduling Changes for the Season Avatars Series

My original plans for this year were to publish a short story collection called Young Seasons in the first part of this year and Summon the Seasons the second half of the year. Both projects are currently in the revision phase; however, I'm spending more time on Summon the Seasons than I am on Young Seasons. Since the novel is much longer than the short story collection, that only makes sense. I've also thought about it and decided that it might be better for the readers to put the novel out before the short story collection. Summon the Seasons is the final book in the series, while Young Seasons is supplemental. I don't have dates for either publication yet. I had to rewrite the opening chapters of Summon the Seasons, and they may still need some tweaking. There are some other major edits needed in other parts of the story as well. I'd rather take a little longer and make the story as good as I can at this stage of my writing career than rush it and spoil the whole series. Now if I can just be more productive at the end of the day, that would help too. Better get back to it!

That makes sense to finish off the main series first and then release the short stories. And yes, you want that last one to end on a high note.

Thanks, Alex!

I'm with you. I'd rather tackle the tough stuff first than to leave it for the end.

I think your plan is logical too. Keep the series together and then add the supplemental.
