Looking at this, I don't see any mercenary work. It's not like you're speech-writing for Donald Trump or ghost-writing a 20-year-old footballer's memoirs to make a buck. You're working in genres and styles you love and making decisions about how to be best able to continue doing so.Write the New Thing (because it was funded. And I love it, but that's secondary)
Finish Inish Carraig 2, because people are waiting for it and it should sell well
Then go and do Abendau prequel, and maybe the sequel. I'd much rather write these than the IC sequel, because I adore Abendau's world, but it will not sell as much, it will not give me as much promotional presence, and it will do little to enhance my career.
How and when to take the leap of reducing day job hours is a tough decision! Best of luck to you whichever path you take!
