On The Verge

So there’s stuff going on!  It’s great!

I’ve got some good news that I’m not quite ready to share yet, but I will be soon.  Hopefully really soon.  But I’m super excited about it and I’m trying to get everything settled before I shout about it.

I’m just about ready to start writing the next book in the trilogy.  You know, it’s funny.  When I wrote Something Like Hope I intended it to be a single title.  I had not thoughts, for once, about writing a series.  It wasn’t going to happen.  Then the Admiral started reading it and told me he wanted another character’s story.  My first reaction was: “But he’s straight!”  And then…oh.  No he’s not and I know how and why.  And that was going to be the second book.  And then the other characters happened, and I realized quickly that no, that’s the third book and there’s another one in between (because the timing works out that way better) and a trilogy was born.  Of which both remaining books are plotted.  So I’m nearly ready to start getting those words on the page.

Even though it’s the Admiral’s fault, I guess I can’t blame him too much.  I’m looking forward to diving in to these other two books and telling these stories as well.  Book number 2, Something Like Trust, is looking to be a long novella.  Book number 3, Something Like Love, will probably be a little shorter, but still in the larger novella range.

And after that?  Well, there’s a couple of things that I have in the pipeline.  A couple of ideas are swimming around, and though they are on hold until I get some books written, they are waiting patiently.  I’m very glad they are.

I’m on the verge.  Of sharing good news, and starting a new WIP.  Of it being a really great writing year.  And of getting a new writing space that is sure to help the creative process even more!
