I don't think even my editors get that I'm not just releasing books or book series, I'm releasing a giant fictional world and puzzle. The 2nd Perfect Forever Novel, The Blooming, the Morgan Katz book stylistically is very different than anything I've released before. It's that way for a reason, but I'm not going to explain why. I like that the Perfect Forever Novels are standalone and can be read that way, but I also like that they fit into the overarching story line that surrounds all my book universe. And they definitely provide me a venue where I can change up my writing, how I construct the prose, the level of steam and the way I tell a story. It's always fun for an author to change it up. It lets our multiple personalities out of our internal lockboxes from time to time.
I don't know if people will get what I'm doing, if readers will like it, but heck, it's still my party and I'm going to release what I want to. And if all goes well with the editors and my schedule, I'll have 4 new releases by June 30th, be done with the Perfect Forever Novels, The Half Shell Series, and The Affair without End Series and be ready to jump right in and finishing Love Me Forever(Indy's book of The Deverells) and then roll into September with my new girl Kaley Stanton, The Sand & Fog Series. She is enormously fun to write. Her brain works in such a funny and quirky way.
But that's if all goes well. The question is, will my readers like what I'm building. I don't know, but I'm sure they'll tell me.
As ever, I wish you Peace.
