Hey everybody! Sorry for the long absence. I wish I had a good excuse, but I honestly don’t have one other than being really busy. Now that I have a few minutes in between classes, I thought I’d say hello.
Also, I wanted to let you all know I’m planning on continuing my Riddle in Stone series. Hopefully, that’ll make some of you happy!
As of now, the third book, Blood in Snow, is the last Diversion will publish. They have said series with more than three books usually don’t sell well and they don’t want to commit to another installment of Riddle in Stone.
I suppose I can understand that. Whenever I see a story on the shelf that’s the first out of five or six or ten books, I tend to lose interest. I mean, who wants to invest that kind of time before reaching the conclusion??? Am I right?
Still, I miss Edmund, Becky, and their friends. I really miss Kravel. I keep hearing him chattering away in the back of my mind demanding, ever so politely, that I write a book about him.
So this is what I plan on doing…
I think I’m going to do at least two more Riddle books—one about Kravel and the other about Edmund (maybe a third about Abby)—and I’ll just self-publish them. Or maybe I’ll put them online for free or have them available for donations to my local Humane Society.
I realize they won’t be best sellers. Maybe nobody will read them at all. I just want to write for my own enjoyment and because I feel compelled to do so. Know what I mean??
At any rate, I’ve been working on a manuscript about Kravel that picks up moments after Blood in Snow ended…however, from Kravel’s perspective. It’s been a bit challenging. But the story is slowly emerging. Hopefully, you’ll all enjoy it someday.
I’m also working on a new series, tentatively titled Quests of the Kings. The first draft is finished. Now I just have to let it sit for a while before editing it.
So that’s it! Sorry again for the long delay. I’ll try to make more of an effort to write regularly.
Thank you for all your support and encouragement. Please keep spreading the word about Riddle. Perhaps if it sells well, Diversion will beg me to keep writing about Edmund!
Until next time…
