In this post, I thought I'd give everyone an idea of what kind of workload my epublishing requires. When I started down this path, I had no idea how much time it would take. I have since learned that it's like having a second job.
My plan is to get at least 3 more novels published this year. I also have the Twelve Worlds collaborative anthology in the works, and I'm going to see if I can find all my old short stories and publish those. It's so much work that I decided to prioritize and estimate work required. Here's a spreadsheet with the estimates, sorted by priority (click to enlarge):
As you can see, that's a ton of work. The hours column estimates how much time I think it will take me to get the task completed. Right now, it's looking like 540 hours of work this year. This does not include several tasks for which I cannot estimate any time.
Since I have a day job, this is all work that I have to do nights and weekends. Usually, I can get maybe 10-16 hours of this work in a week. So, my goal of 3 new books this year is actually at risk. We'll see how I do.
I hope this gives you all an idea of what kind of effort you can expect if you want to push out 3 books a year.
