I released my first series of novels in 2017, a series called “Infinite Vampire”. I invested a lot of money, time, and effort into the book’s creation. I had high hopes for how sales would perform, and delusions of how I would be a breakout novelist. Unfortunately my books were not immediately turned into movies, and the interactive website I built did not gain hundreds of thousands of hits by excited readers.
The series is four novels and one prequel novella, but I have much more planned it I’ve started outlining a new novella that will take place about halfway through the series, between books two and three, and I’ve also written an origin-story graphic novel. I’ve actually detailed about five different graphic novels, but in any case, I’ve written the first one. Oh, I’m also planning a sequel set of novels that take place a few years after the first series closes.
At the very least, it was a lot of fun to write, even if it was pain in the ass. I learned tons through the process, made plenty of mistakes, and honed my skill and work ethic. I don’t feel like I’m giving up on the series when I don’t work on it, because I know that I someday will release new material in the world. Most the time though, I just wish that I had the time or energy to be working on it, so that I could release new material sooner.
As it stands, it’s a wonderful first series from a newbie author, and I’m very proud of the work and craftsmanship that I put into it.
