What’s on the horizon?
I’m not sure which manuscript my publisher may decide to run with next. Well, if my publisher decides to run with anything. I have several manuscripts in various stages of doneness though nothing is ever done because I can rewrite until the planet runs out of ink.
I’ve two manuscripts close to finished. I’ve been going back and forth. One (which if you were to follow the books in order of years in which they take place would be next) is called Drowning Karma. It starts with a nine-year-old girl who comes to own a magic paint brush. She points it at a house and the house transforms. There are repercussions.
The next book I was calling The Labyrinth House. I think I’m going to change the title because I shared a rough draft of it with people a few years ago, and now it is such a different story, I want those first readers to give the final draft another look. I could switch back to the original title Sunlight and Mercie. It is also more fantastical than The Blue Jar. I let the characters lose in a house where the walls and rooms move and change and mysterious characters live within. The story is inspired by the myth of Persephone in the Underworld.
We’ll see what happens.
