In that time, I have managed to secure a multitude of books, some fabulous authors, and create a gen fic imprint, Eleventh Hour Literary Press.
I'm extremely proud of my baby - my project.
While I'm extremely busy with EGP and EHLP, and I couldn't be happier, there is one small thing that has been sacrificed... my own work.
While I have two novels in the works, a gen fic and a dark fantasy, as well as a short story collection - I haven't touched them in a good three months. The downtime of EGP is gone and I am constantly engulfed with other author's manuscripts. Don't get me wrong - I love what I'm doing and I have some amazing authors, so I'm proud to spend my time in their pages... but my own characters are screaming at me, begging to be finished.
This is a feeling unique only to authors - this feeling of someone inside, begging to be set free. An unfinished tale, an urge almost - to get these thoughts, this other world onto paper in whatever form necessary.
I am so proud of my company, though. It has grown so fast, and produced some fabulous works already. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next four months. Perhaps then, I'll be able to take a moment to finish my own work!
