The lovely Kayleigh left a comment on one of my recent posts asking for my plans after Hidden. So I figured this was as good a time as any to give an update on book four’s progress as well as share my plans for what’s next.
Book Four Progress
I have two more scenes to write for book four. One will be fairly straightforward. The other is giving me fits. It’ll come, but right now I’m frustrated and irritated. My plan was to be finished writing Strife by 3/31, and that (obviously) hasn’t happened. My next goal is to finish it by Monday, and I am absolutely determined to make that one!
After Book Four
I’ve already started preliminary outlining and notes for Hidden, Book Five, which will be the final book in the series. I’ll probably start working on it as soon as I’m finished with edits for Strife. That one will be out in fall 2014. There will also be another Hidden novella. I’ll be publishing Shanti’s novella sometime around when Strife comes out, but the final (secret) novella won’t come out until after book five. As I’ve mentioned before, Shanti’s book (Forever Night) and the other novella aren’t required reading for the Hidden storyline. They are side stories about other characters in the series.
Next Series: Paranormal Romance
My next series will be more of a paranormal romance series. Right now I’m planning for three books that are centered more on Rayna (who those of you who are reading Forever Night are already familiar with) and her court. Those will likely be out in 2015.
I have a contemporary romance in the works (it is so weird to be writing about non-supernaturals…) and that will either be out in late 2014 or early 2015, depending on how I can fit it in between my other projects. I also have another series in the works, but I don’t want to talk too much about that until after Hidden is all wrapped up.
Busy times ahead, but I am having a blast. Thanks Kayleigh for the question!
All right. Back to work! 🙂
