Can I just begin by saying this? My fans are the best. Seriously. I know every author thinks the same of their readers, but mine are squishy bundles of love and I adore them. One of the reasons is they keep asking, “What are you going to give us next, Rosanna?”
Usually, I know. Right now, not so much.
You see, I feel a little bit in flux at the moment. A little verklempt. Although I’ve been mulling over some ideas, I’m unsure which to tackle next. I’m also in the unenviable/enviable (?) position of waiting on a submission to be returned, and it’s pretty much obsessing my every waking moment. Until I know more about that submission, I can’t do a thing about that book. I’m in a very uncomfortable holding pattern.
What about Gemini Island, you ask? Well, book 5, Predator’s Fire comes Sept. 8, so that’s a plus. However, I haven’t begun writing book 6 because I’m pretty sure it’ll be the last one in the series. Frankly, I just don’t have the heart to go there yet. I’ll miss the people at the Ursa Lodge so much when the series ends. Maybe it doesn’t have to end with book 6, but I also don’t want to beat it into the ground.
And how about my Orkney Selkies? Yes, I long to return to Orkney, but right now the bulk of my readers are asking for more Gemini Island stories and I want to keep my readers happy…and reading.
What about my Greek gods? I adore them and would love to pen another book in the series. However, compared to my other books, they just don’t sell as well. So do I put all my energy into a book that might not sell? It doesn’t seem prudent if I want to further my career. Perhaps one day.
I am writing an incubus romance right now and enjoying it, but am only about half way through, so we have a ways to go. My villain is saucy and devilish, and frankly, I like him as much as the hero. A good thing, I suppose. I’ll keep you posted on that one.
So I suppose I turn it over to my faithful readers. Based on reader response, and what’s in my heart, I’ll choose my path.
