It feels like it has taken forever to write this story. It’s one thing to have a general idea of what happened between Luna and Cass Sky before Sierra Sky was born, but it’s quite a whole different ball of wax to actually write the story. There is a lot of time that passes between the time they meet and she is born, and weaving that together with the stated facts from the sequel already in place is a bit tougher. Especially when I was forced to make a few changes by the many editors at Total-e-bound.
Since KOK will be published on my own (through Amazon and Smashwords et al), it won’t be held under the same scrutiny, so I have much more creative control over what will appear in the finish version. I’m still debating ignoring the changes made in Sierra Sky, put a disclaimer at the beginning of KOK and keep everything as is, or adjust the story for the differences. I guess I’ll hammer all that out during the editing stages, but one thing I’m certain of is that KOK will be one of the longest books I have written to date. No, it won’t be a 100,000 word epic, but it will be longer than my 50,000 average. I’m guessing somewhere around 65,000 words or more. Considering that Sierra Sky is much shorter, this length surprises even me. :)
When I get it polished up a bit, I’ll post a few saucy teasers on the forum. I’m probably going to price this erotic sci-fi interspecies romance novel at $3.49 like my other full length recent novels, and it will be priced the same on all platforms (Smashwords will distribute to Barnes & Noble, Sony, Kobo, Apple and a few other places). I hope it does well, and you all like it. I’ll try not to get my feelings too hurt by any one star reviews!
