Ladies, ladies, ladies. Ok, and the few gentlemen that follow me here as well…
Two days ago, in the midst of writing yet another book something came to me.
Let me first just say that the book I’m currently writing is the first in what is expected to be my second series. I haven’t given any additional information about it yet, but I promise that’s coming soon. What I can tell you is that this series will be a longer one than the Everything Series.
That said, I’ve got 3/4 of the Everything Series completed. You already have Wes & Charley and Zane & Emme. Stone & Monroe are coming next, and I expect to give you some information about that very, very soon. Once I’m finished with the book I’m currently working on, I’m planning to close out the Everything Series and write Nikki and Luke’s story. It’s one I really can’t wait to write because the content is something that hits so very close to home for me personally.
Now that I’ve given you an update on where the next couple of months are going with books and releases, here’s the problem. I just said that I’m starting a new series. It’s going to be a rather lengthy one. I’ve had, for nearly a year now, ideas in the back of my mind for at least two other series I would love to write.
This is not a problem. It’s good to know I’ve got things on the back burner waiting to be shared. I’m really excited about them and wish I had infinite amounts of time to write because that would only allow me to deliver them quicker. Unfortunately, I don’t have infinite amounts of time. Thankfully, the characters in those stories are being patient, waiting for me to tell them when the time is right.
So, what’s the problem?
As I said earlier, something came to me two days ago.
For yet another series.
At first I thought, I absolutely DO NOT NEED any more ideas because I’m already lost inside my own head trying to sort out how I’m going to bring to life in a timely manner all of the stories I already have there.
But this idea hit me like a freight train. It distracted me for far longer than I think is appropriate or reasonable. I thought, “It’s ok. I’ll just get back to writing, get lost in the story I’m telling now, and when I wake up tomorrow, all will be forgotten.”
That did not happen.
The characters are coming at me full-force and the males are not happy. In fact, they are downright pissed that I’ve told them they need to wait. The male characters in this series are the kind who get what they want when they want it. And it’s not because they are assholes. No, they have very good reason for being the way that they are and I promise (I’m making a lot of those in this post) once you see what they do, you’ll understand. They will be all alpha and bossy, but will have a soft side the likes you’ve never seen before. The kind that will warm your heart and soul through to the core. I already LOVE them. Seriously. I am completely, totally in love with these guys. You will be, too.
Quite frankly, I’m not sure what to do now. They won’t leave me alone and I wasn’t prepared to have this thrown into the mix.
How do my readers feel about multiple series at one time from the same author? I’m ok with a series being nearly complete and starting a new one. I think it gives readers something to look forward to when one is coming to a close. But what if I finish one series, start another that is expected to be lengthy, and a third is insisting on being told?
So, I ask you, my dear readers, what’s a girl to do?
