My Second Book is a Go!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got the word on Friday but refrained from announcing the news via a celebratory Twitter meltdown. Everyone was on vacation this weekend anyway – my spastic yells of excitement would’ve gone unheard.
As you recall, I had no idea what to call the sequel to CassaStar. Fortunately, my publisher is sharper than me and made some suggestions. At the moment, my manuscript has been dubbed:
I like that!
I’m to work on my back cover synopsis and resubmit it. (Translation – “Lame! Try again.”)
Release date will be sometime next March.
BIG thanks to my critique buddies ( Rusty, Jeffrey, and Anne ) and test readers for helping me with the manuscript.
And BIG thanks to those of you who read CassaStar and requested a sequel! I never imagined more than one book (never even thought there would be that one book) and continuing Byron’s adventure while addressing everyone’s concerns and questions (why the heck are there no women in this book?) was a challenge. But you prodded me to write another story and I thank you for the encouragement. (Some of you shoved and a couple even kicked, but that’s cool – I needed it!)
The news couldn’t have come on a better weekend – I just pretended all the celebrations and fireworks were for me. Now I can finally have my celebratory freak out online. Followed by freak out of what the hell am I going to write next…?
