Ok, I have a question i'd like to put to my readers, fans and friends . I have been vocal in my intention to next release a collection of erotic short stories, but I'm at an impass. You see I have been devoted to a stand alone Erotic story for over a year and a half, I've chossen my words advisably here because at the moment it's 34000 words, so not really a short story. It's finished but I'm currently doing the editorial 2nd draft and since i've deleted a thousand words and added 5000, and I'm only on page 15 out of 54 (on microsoft word). Now why am i telling you this you might be wondering, well I've been doing the edit for 4 months now i think and though the next 40 or so pages are just one sex scene after another, and i am not joking or being dramatic there, so hopefull the edit will sped up, I'm still looking at a long haul just to finish this then i have the over 7 or so short stories to re-write; therefore it will probably be at least a year before the collection is ready.
So Now we come to my question, should i publish this story when it's done and leave it out of the collection or go on as originally planed and release it's first edition in the collection?
