Return of the Witch

What, another book published today? Are you crazy? How are you doing that? I can hear you now, but I’m not cheating. I will explain. I’ve been writing novels for years, but was unable to sell them traditionally. Since I have started self-publishing them, it looks like I write a book a month. I could, and I have done so, but that’s not what’s happening here. Over the past year or so I have self-published most of my back list of completed manuscripts, plus written and published four new novels. There, my secret is out.
Now, on to today’s book. Last November I wrote and published a novel in three weeks for the NaNoWriMo challenge. I put it up for free to give folks an idea of my writing style, but I always intended to revise it and make it into a series. Last month I pulled Novan Witch down and began revisions. The revisions are now complete and I am well pleased with the book, so I have published the revised edition. Here it is, I hope you enjoy it.
So, that’s it friends, that’s how I get so much done. Now I am almost caught up on back list, so I will be down to four or five new book per year I guess. Sigh. There goes my reputation for super powers.
So, how about you folks, any secrets you’d like to share?  Aw come on, you can trust me, I can keep a secret.
Hey, if you’ve got the time and are so inclined, could you nip over to my Amazon page and hit the LIKE button? Thanks.

    Ahhh – so that's your secret. Interesting. I went through the WIPS I've written previously and winced. It's amazing how much you can learn about craft in a relatively short amount of time. I'd love to go back and work on those older stories – but some of them likely require an entire rewrite. Seems easier just to start over :/

    Well, four or five books in a year is still a lot! It takes me at least a year to write one book! You are definitely a dynamo!

    Four or five books a year sounds like superpowers to me! I have a few trunk books (heck, they all are!), but my revisions and editing process takes forever, so I still don't look prolific. And once those are out, I'm probably looking at one book a year. Congrats on your new release!

    I second and third what has been said already. I take forever in the editing process. I may write a book in six months, but I'll then take forever and a year editing it. LOL You are still a Dynomite super power in my book!

    Agreed with all the previous comments. 4-5 a year!!! Geez. My process is way way much slower, I'm not even getting a book a year at this rate. Hmm another secret I can steal! I do have a back log of manuscripts. Perhaps I ought to dust them off . . . sneaks off to take a peak. . ..

    So now that we know the secret, I still think it's a super power Prudence! 🙂

    Congrats, Prudence! I say the more of your work, the better. If I'm to read one to start with, which would you recommend?

    By the way, you remind me of the author I interviewed for my blog this week (R.J. Ellory) in your prolific, write-like-crazy nature. 🙂 LOVE it!
