Welcome to Insecure Writer's Support Group. We are a group writers who share our doubts and encouragements. I'd like to thank Alex Cavanaugh and this month's hosts. Learn more about the group here.
So, it's happened. Entwined, book three in my Embrace Series, isn't out yet and someone has asked if I'm working on book four. Actually, she said, "Please tell me you're working on book 4." I'm honored and thrilled and OMG ecstatic to know that there is interest in a fourth book, because yes! I too I'm dying to know what Madison does next. I've had glimpses of what she'll face. Not to mention her BFF has a story all her own that is begging to be told. But I haven't started either book. Here's were my insecurity comes in. I adore the characters in these books and love writing about them, but they haven't found as large of an audience as I would like them to. Now, I'm inclined to write the next book for me and the readers who have found these novels. There's a certain demon who wouldn't mind ruffling my brave protagonist's magical feathers even more than he has already. And truth be told, I want to see what Madison does about it. But I also have ideas for other books outside of this series. Do I step back into what's familiar or should I flush out a new idea? These questions have been in the back of my mind as I work on my YA Realistic Romance, which is close to done. But now that someone asked about more books, well... that is how books two and three came to be. I really need someone to push me in one direction or the other. Anyone out there feel like giving me a shove? Please do!
Speaking of ENTWINED, there's just 41 days to its release date! Cover reveal should be coming soon. I'll keep you posted!
Oh, and yesterday was my birthday, which is why I'm so chipper this week. I'm not sure if that's coming across in this post, but I am. After all, I'm another year younger. (I refuse to age in the other direction. What would be the fun in that?)
I'd love to hear what you'd do regarding the series. How's your writing coming along? Any insecurities? Is there an upcoming event your excited about?
Thanks for stopping by!
