And my book is currently a hot mess!
And extremely dark. A lot of bad stuff happens to the characters. I don’t know what happened. But that was just their story, and I had to tell it.
Does that ever happen to you, other authors? You just know these things happened to your characters and you can’t change it?
But luckily, I figured out the overarching plot line, and even more importantly what the next book is going to be about.
And I have to say, I am SUPER excited about the third book. GAHHHHHH!!!! Inspiration just struck me while I was out jogging with my dog the other day, and I’ve been on a roll ever since.
The third book is going to be AWESOMESAUCE, and I’m not going to give anything away about it. Ever.
I just need to calm down, however, and get through the second one. it it just sooo depressing in places. I mean, it’s about a drug addicted vampire, for God’s sakes.
But it spends a lot more time steampunk world building, which was another aspect my readers wanted more of. And the romance is very epic, even more epic than Aline and Sasha’s story, in my opinion. I just hope my current readers like it as much as they did the first one.
Perhaps Nov. 26th was a bit ambitious for me … but I’ve heard from so many readers that they want the sequel ASAP, and I just got really motivated to JUST DO IT! And I do work better under pressure. : )
Right now, I’m just thinking: witty banter, witty banter! This book needs some comic relief!
I just hope I sort this hot mess out soon! I want a tight, edited copy out Nov. 26th.
