It was around the middle of April when I turned Pinky, The Invisible Flying Pony Who Saves The World over to editing, and it was only last Valentine’s Day that the name “Pinky” was even decided. The first story just came back from the editor yesterday, and now here I am, kicking out a rough draft of the second story in what seems to be a (gasp!) SERIES. This installment is titled, Pinky the Invisible Flying Pony Vs. The Giant, Carnivorous, Poisonous, Exploding, Spider-Leeches.
Wow. Try fitting THAT on the spine of a book.
Anyway, the story is quite exciting, it has all the things you’d expect, like an Invisible Flying Pony, and Carnivorous, Exploding Spider-Leeches, and some things you would never expect, like a High School Musical 2 Lunchbox and a riding floor-cleaner. I’ve uploaded the story for review at MN Spec, and I’ll send it out to my pre-reader fan club list. I suspect in a couple weeks, I’ll have incorporated their feedback, and Pinky2 will be ready for the editor.
I’ve given quite a bit of thought to the big picture for the series of Pinky stories. How many should I write? How long should they be? Should I release them all as free e-books? Should I compile them into a full-on hardcopy?
The answers might surprise you. All I can tell you for now is to stay tuned and spread the word, because fans will get more free stuff than you can shake a spider-leech at.
