I've been keeping secrets.
It's particularly challenging to blog when you're out on submission because you're not supposed to tell people that's where you're at in the process. It's even harder to blog when a book has been accepted but you're waiting for all the paperwork stuff to go through so you can't tell anyone.
BUT...it's really easy to blog today.
I'm THRILLED to announce that the sequel to CONFESSIONS OF A SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC HITWOMAN will be published by Avon Impulse!!!
I'm once again immersed in the world of Maggie, Godzilla, and the rest of the gang. It's a weird and wonderful place to be.
I've never written a sequel before and I'm finding it to be an interesting balancing act. On the one hand I don't want to bore people with repetitive details from the first book, but on the other hand, I know that most people won't read the second book right after the first, so I need to put in enough info to jog the reader's memory. Not to mention, the book has to make sense to someone who reads it who hasn't read the first book at all. It's making my head spin!
TELL ME KILLER FRIENDS: What do you look for when you read a second, third, or forth book in a series? What authors do you enjoy that do it well?
If you've read CONFESSIONS OF A SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC HITWOMAN who or what do you hope to see more of in the next book?
