I've re-considered how I'm doing future Snowybrook Inn stories. I started off publishing the series as short 70-80-page books back in 2012, and when I had released three, I combined them into one volume, Welcome to Snowybrook Inn.
Recently when I began working on more stories in the series, my plan was to write a novel's worth of stories and then release them all at once as Return to Snowybrook Inn. I even had a pre-order page set up on Amazon, as I thought the deadline might motivate me to write quickly. It has, but not as quickly as I would have liked.
So I've re-tooled my plans, and have decided to go back to my initial method, and just release short individual books, each containing about 70 pages worth of stories, as I finish them at my own pace. This also helps with the audiobook versions, which were also released in short 2-3 hour chunks and tied to the short book series rather than the collected Welcome to Snowybrook Inn volume. I couldn't take the shorter books off sale, because of the audiobook connection, and I thought having three smaller books and then two collected books, along with a comic book version, would just be cluttering the field, so to speak, and possibly lead to confusion among readers.
So anyway, cancelled Return to Snowybrook Inn, and just released Snowybrook Inn: Book Four a few short weeks ago, which is the subject of the next post.
