|Is that so bad?|
This forces an end to my plans to write about fifth-century India in The Rule of Love and Barbary Coast pirates in Renegade. Lost countless hours in the research (and part of each manuscript themselves - another story) but I had fun while it lasted! As much as dumping any half-finished manuscript isn't also a happy occasion, it brings some clarity on the road to capturing readers' imaginations. This means working two more books in the Sultana series than previously imagined (there will be six total by 2015), with Sultana: Two Sisters coming out this year swiftly followed by another (a post later this week looks at getting lost in the details of writing this one, plus the headache of coming up with a title!) before I delve into the next series on Dracula's father and brothers.
|Ahh! There it is - the path to clarity|
