Since I've closed out two of my books for this year. This means I can dive into my 5 book rom-com about Merman. My alpha/editor has helped me map out what is going on in the books and make them interlock which I like with them being a stand-alone. I've given myself the whole winter to write them so they can be fast-release during the summer months. I haven't heard back from my photographer yet so I guess when I have the first two books I'll have to dive into finding someone else to help me create the book covers. I'm also working on a dark romance as well. That one doesn't have a time frame yet since I'm not close to being done with it and still kind of mapping out the characters and what is going to happen in the story.

Are you working with an editor from a company that published your books? Or are you self-publishing online? It's good that you're giving yourself time to write these books.

I'm self-published and I have an editor that I don't pay for but her name is in my books so I get her name out there for her. I do plan on getting her something for Christmas as a thank you so in that cash I'll probably get her some money. Tending on what the book is depends on how long I need to write but both me and her are parents and she does have a full-time job. We tend to work off of each other. I felt that me doing a fast release and giving myself several months to work them out is better. I usually pick my release once I"'m out of my beta stages or done writing and we have already at this point because she edits as I write which works great for me.

@ShyBear88 Is she a friend of yours and that's why you don't have to pay her? Would you mind if I sent you a private message about this?
