I'd planned on getting the next book in the Triple Trouble series done and submitted by May, June at the latest.
Well, the characters decided not only were they going to demand attention sooner, they've made it worth my while and are giving me not just the next book in the series, but the one after that as well. LOL
Meaning since I'm at the mercy of "the voices," I've got me some writing to do. LOL Because looks like they will be two big-ass books. Hopefully will have book five done and submitted by the end of this month, and will immediately begin working on book 6.
I know, I know, the cliff-hangers. I'm sorry about those, they aggravate me too, but blame Elain, Ain, Brodey, Cail, Lina, Jan, Rick, Blackie, Callie, Mai, Micah, Jim, Zack, Kael, Lacey, Jocko, Andel... Did I forget anyone? LOL Blame THEM. They're the ones who leave me in a (oh yeah, Liam and Carla lol) fix and leave me hanging as much as they leave you hanging.
When the voices stop talking, they just stop talking. It's a writer thing (and I know there are plenty of you out there nodding right along with me). I'm a pantster, not a plotter. I don't start out with a verbatim outline ready to go when I sit down and write. I usually have mile-markers plot points I want to hit, and maybe even a scene or two already fleshed out. But then it's up to the characters to tell me the story. I sit and, to use Stephen King's (I think it's from him and I'm too tired to consult great god Google at the moment) analogy, excavate the bones from the ground one tiny piece at a time.
It's a lot like that.
So yes, two more Triple Trouble books here in the next few months. I'd planned on finishing up book two of the Bleacke Shifter series, as well as Sachi's story, and the next two Placida Pod books, but the Triple Trouble gang got their acts together a little sooner than I expected.
Damn dominant wolves and dragons, anyway.
If you didn't know, the correct reading order (including the dragon prequels) is as follows:
- Boiling Point (Tasty Treats, Vol. 3)
- Fire and Ice
- Trouble Comes in Threes
- Storm Warning
- Three Dog Night
- Triple Dog Dare
