The "His Robot Wife" Brand
I've been reading a book on marketing, and one thing I've learned from it is that each of my book series is a brand. I have one brand that is particularly popular-- His Robot Wife. When taken in that light, it is stupid of me not to have more products available under this brand-- in other words, books.
I've always said that I would write another Robot book if I had a story. Well, I'm thinking up stories all the time. What I didn't really have was an approach. After thinking about this for a week, I think I have an approach. So what does this mean?
It means that there will be more Robot Patience stories coming in 2012-- at least one, maybe more, and eventually a whole series. I'm not giving up writing everything else, so the three books I am completing will come first, but they should all be done by late March. Then it's on to Robot Book 3.
That being said, I have a number of other brands in need of a second or third product-- Amathar, Tesla, and Eaglethorpe Buxton. I'll get to them as soon as I can.
