Alright, so I am going to take a brief pause from writing to post a quick update. I know many of you are getting quite impatient and antsy. I’m terribly sorry but, it’s remarkable how busy one can get within a few weeks!
The reason for the delay is twofold:
1) I have been participating in two short story contests, and, unfortunately, it has been eating up the little and precious time that I have. I want everyone to know that it is important and necessary for me to be literary active. Plus, it will also help with my novels, since many of you know that practice makes perfect.
2) Secondly, the third novel of the Bitten series will be the last. I cannot say how crucial it is for me to finish it on a good note. I want to tie up all the loose ends, and assure myself that nothing will be amiss.
So, why am I being so tedious with the last one? Well, I’m planning to write a spin-off.
“Bitten”, with Ally and Benedict, has always rather been a prequel to another story I wanted to write. If you have read “Stolen”, you can see that the main storylines were shifting to Trish and Gabriel.
I am going to be blunt: Something sinister is happening to the human and vampire worlds. The Verdons have been secretly planning a move that is much bigger than the union between Moira and Benedict. Vincent, Moira’s father, will finally have all the cards needed to change his realm for the “better”.
I cannot go into details as to what he is doing and how he will succeed. Nor, can I say what will happen to the characters. All I can say is that the last book is longer than I expected, but it must be written without any short cuts.
I can almost hear the groans…
So, to appease some of you, I promise to write more often via Facebook, Twitter and this blog. I won’t be giving any juicy tidbits away, but I will be posting my progress.
I hope this post reassures everyone that I haven’t given up on the saga, nor that I have been slacking off.
Stay tuned, because next week I will be revealing the title!
