So, with the delay on the release of Mercy, I’ve had some time to give consideration to my writing future. I’m continuing to work with my publisher as they go through this difficult transition (I actually think of it as an end to an era,) but cannot imagine sitting stagnant in the meantime.
Given the situation … my editor moving on to another publisher, and the uncertainty of Dorchester’s future … I almost decided to stop writing romance. I have a few other projects in the works, and wondered if the whole thing was an indication that I should consider moving on. The Virtues mean the world to me, and no matter what else I do, those six girls will always occupy a special place in my heart, but did I really want to continue with the next planned series?
All of you helped me answer that question. Your support and encouragement, emails, comments and Facebook messages have helped me decide to go forward with the next series. It’ll be a whole new world for me … new era, new focus … and hopefully a new offer.
The series will star the ancestors of the men who fell in love with the Ackerly women. Set in and around the world of Tournaments, the men will know of each other … and perhaps even compete with one another. Wouldn’t it be funny if Trevor and Sebastian’s ancestors could look into the future and see that, despite the fact that they were staring at one another from opposite ends of a jousting fence, they would someday be the best of friends?
I am so grateful for all of you … truly : ) Have a beautiful day.
