So here’s the thing about being a writer – once you finish up one project, you need to jump on the next one. Sure, you can give yourself a nice pat on the back and a week or so to enjoy success, but, sooner or later, the next book beckons.
With The Water Road trilogy in the rear view, it’s time for me to start working on my next book in earnest. Guess what – I already have! I began the first book of my next series (tentatively called Empire Falls – and, yes, I am aware) last week. It’s going to be a steampunk story set in a world with one superpower teetering on the edge of collapse. I’m envisioning seven books (!), so I need to get cracking!
To help me build some momentum, I’m going on blog hiatus for the rest of July. That way I can pour all my typing and word-generation energy into the new book. Hopefully, when August rolls around, I’ll be knee deep in it and past the point of know return. Until then . . .
