When my book was first released my publisher, being the business man he is, made sure everyone knew that I am working on a sequel. The word sequel gets people excited as they always want to know what is going to happen and if they will indeed have their happily ever after.
While I am glad people are excited to see what happens next with Amber and Dalton I think they are expecting the sequel to be the next book released and seem a bit disappointed when I tell them otherwise. Let me be clear, I am working on a sequel; I’m just taking my time with it so as not to disappoint. How many times have you seen a sequel and been disappointed when it does not live up to its predecessor? I have read books that way and I must admit, it leaves me pretty upset when it happens. No one wants to be let down, me included.
I will be making at least three trips to Kentucky next year for book signings. These are scheduled events with firm places and dates. One of those trips is to Lexington Kentucky where the second book is set. While I have visited the place on numerous occasions I want to explore the area with a fresh set of eyes and look for places I can use to help the story come to life.
If you have read the book and have thoughts of what you would like to see in the sequel. I would love to hear what you have to say. I am not guaranteeing I will use your ideas as I do have several definite things I plan to include but, then again, you never know you could just be responsible for taking the story in a whole new direction!
For now I ask that you remain patient and bear with me a while longer. I have several key “happenings” within the sequel but the key point is getting there. No the key point is to make you, the reader want to make the journey, and more importantly enjoy the ride without asking are we there yet!
