I know what I’m going to do. I’ve made list upon list, I’ve tossed coins, asked around, dreamed, wept and pulled my hair, but I know what I want to do.
‘Slippers & Chains: Sugar Dust’ (and the rest of the Slippers & Chains) franchise for that matter, will be released through Little Vamp Press.
I’d like to thank all the folk across Twitter who have listened to me piss and moan about this for the last couple of weeks. I would also specifically like to thank Maria Smith for her ideas, support and humour last week. I know this decision is somewhat different to where we landed when we spoke on Saturday (with a few flutters back and forth in between), but I’m already working on your ideas and I see light!
It’s going to be hard work.
I know that.
It’s going to be slow. Slower than I thought.
I can deal with that.
It’s going to be (initially) more expensive.
I know that too.
But with all these cons and more thrown into a big list they just don’t outweigh the pros. When I look back at all I’ve achieved since 2013 I know this is the way to go. I can feel it in my bones.
I’ll learn more this way. I’ll be forced to become more pro-active and innovative. I’ll have to practise strict timekeeping and scheduling. I’ll have to be organised. All skills that are valuable outside of this incredible task I have set myself. And most of all, I don’t have to do any of this at a racing pace. I can afford to take my time. Do things slow. Do things well. Learn. Enjoy.
My name is Raven ShadowHawk and I’m an independent author and publisher.
Peel back your bed sheets . . . I’m coming in. 😉
