I get asked a lot if I’m working on anything new. You guys, I am working on all the books, but they’re all at in between stages, so it’ll be a little while before I can share them with you. Here’s the rundown:
For the last three years, I’ve been working on an adult epic fantasy series with my friends Megan Grey and Lauren Janes. You guys, I am so excited about these books. We have three books done, and three more in late stages. These are on submission now to publishers, so we’ll see if they get picked up. (The market, guys. It’s rough.) If they don’t get picked up, we’ll start publishing these in 2019.
Megan and I have also been working on a contemporary romance series that’s also out on submission to publishers. We have four books done (including one novella) and two more polishing up in the next couple of months. If these don’t get picked up, we’ll also start putting these out in later 2019. (It’s going to be a big year, either way.) I am so excited to share these books with you.
The Bollywood Lovers’ Club!
Ten years ago my friend James Goldberg started a brilliant book that I was in love with. Seven or so years later I finally got so frustrated that I couldn’t read the end of it that I offered to co-write. It’s been so amazing to work with James, and finally get this book finished. It still needs to go out to publishers, so we’re at least a year out from being able to share this with you, but it’s going to be amazing.
I’ve also taken up ghostwriting in my copious spare time. It should come as no surprise that money is scarce in publishing, and it’s pretty awesome to write words and be immediately paid for them. I’m having fun writing various books for other authors (mostly romance). No, you won’t ever know who I’m writing for. I’m not even always sure. Call it selling out, call it a mid-life crisis, but I call it doing what I love for money, and I’m comfortable with that.
Assorted projects that are waiting for me to get to them!
As if that isn’t enough, I also have a number of YA books waiting for me to revise them, both single-author and co-written. These will have to wait until some of these other projects get to later stages, because right now writing two extended series plus promoting my existing books plus revising the Bollywood book plus writing copy to pay the bills and oh, you know, taking care of my kids and doing homeschool and making sure my house is only a slight total disaster and also GMing my gaming group until my campaign ends and I can hand off that responsibility…that’s basically all I can handle. But there are stories I love in there, so I’ll get to them. Eventually.
So yes. I am working on all the new things. Thanks for asking. And I’m thrilled to be able to share them with you, possibly as soon as next year!
