Well, in a rather anti-climactic moment, I put the last word and period on the draft of the next book, A New World: Reckoning, last night. I say it was anti-climactic because there was no build up inside of me anticipating the story, at least this book anyway, drawing to an end. It just kind of, well, ended. That being said, I have no idea when the editing will be complete and the book ready to be published. Soon I hope but now I have to tackle the first round of edits, which I so dearly enjoy.
There were some who didn’t enjoy the turn the last book took but I only tell the story the way it wants to be told. I know this sounds rather cliche but it’s the truth. This book takes off from where the last one left off and, without giving any spoilers away, continues down the same path. I will say that this one took off on its own like some of the others have. What was meant to be only part of the book ended up filling the entire one. So, that means that some of the story I meant to tell will have to be in the next one. There’s your spoiler; yes, there is going to be another one.
It will be interesting to see what happens to the group next. I mean in the next one after this. It should prove to be interesting. I am contemplating writing a companion book between this one and the next that will encompass the some of the stories of those bodies that Jack and the crew have run across. I’m not sure about this as yet but they have a story to tell as well and it’s been tickling the few brain cells I have remaining.
Again, thank you for all of your support, kind message, and reviews. I appreciate each and every one of them. Receiving them truly does make my day. I hope you have an awesome weekend. I’ll just be here slowly going brain dead as I go through the edits.
