My Demon Ep. 10 Delayed

I'm very sorry to announce that episode 10 of My Demon will be delayed. I think I knew this would happen even as I scrambled to get episode 9 done for last month. During final prep, I didn't set up episode 10 for preorder on Amazon. I don't know if doing so set me up for failure or if I subconsciously knew I would fail, but I have not finished episode 10 yet which I know must be a big let down since it is supposed to be the finale.

When I set out to produce My Demon, I thought I would always stay ahead of schedule. When I started putting these episodes out, I had five episodes ready. I thought, no sweat, I had five months to write the rest and finish it, but I didn't appreciate how much work putting out a serial would be. I've been working on this project now for a year. I worked on it during NaNoWriMo last year and kept working on it steadily until now. I split my time early on with other projects thinking I would get so much work done and publish other books alongside My Demon, but that was a bad idea. I should've stayed focused on this project and saw it through. It seems that I am no good at writing multiple project.

I don't know when episode 10 will come out. I hope it'll be up by mid-month, but I can't be sure.  

Again, I'm very sorry that Episode 10 is not ready. I hope I will be able to present it to you shortly.

My Demon Episode 9 and Volume 1 Published!

Episode 9 is now published. It is a little shorter than previous episodes, though not much. It may seem shorter because it encompasses one day, but that day was much longer than I anticipated.

The tenth episode will now encompass just over three days and will probably be quite long.

I have a confession to make. I've been basically writing these episodes the month before for the past few months. When I started publishing My Demon I had a cushion of about four-five months, but as time progressed, I lost that cushion and man, do I miss it. It has felt a bit like a scramble to produce My Demon, but with this being the final episode, I plan to go hard and finish this.

Adding to the scramble, I scheduled the release of My Demon Volume 1 for Oct. 1st as well. It contains the first four episodes of the serial. They have been edited and proofed again for this re-release. It is now and available at many different vendors.

One thing this endeavor has taught me is that I have firm limits and I've pushed myself past them. Trying to produce on a tight schedule is not for me. I need to relax it a lot. I will not have a publishing schedule from now on because I can't determine months in advance when I'll be done with something. I can't work this way. I'm proud of what I've accomplished, but it is not sustainable and I need to fall back and regroup.

One thing that frustrates me though is that I have a ton of stuff waiting to be worked on. I have a rough draft of the next Scary Mary novel and the Ravenswood novella All Debts Come Due waiting in the queue and I just don't have the focus. I feel sapped. When I set out to do My Demon, I did not realize how much energy and time it would take and that was naive of me. At the very least, this has been a hard lesson in limits, but I hope you've enjoyed My Demon and are excited for the final episode. I'm working on it and it will be ready Nov. 1st come Hell or high water.

As an update, I'm planning to gather and reissue the first 4 episodes as My Demon Volume 1 on Oct. 1st. I'll be taking down the individual episodes when the volume goes live, but that will not affect anyone who has already purchased the individual episodes.
