So, I guess I have been out of it for a while now and I suppose I blame that mainly on the tight editing deadlines my publisher gave me on second Verado book ‘The Vampire Katya’.
Katya, the beautiful Hungarian vampire, is due to have her story told in September. As I was writing A Darker Blood it became apparent, that, of all my secondary characters, Katya was the one whose story needed to be told. She has lived such a long, turbulent existence, the thing’s she has seen and done, just couldn’t be left unsaid.
Although the book is still in the editing stages, I have just finished with my content editor. Just like the first one, the book has come on leaps and bounds with the input of a professional editor, and once again Judy Roth has been wonderful.
As I wait for it to go to the line editor to polish any last blemishes out of the manuscript, I have been working on a prequel. I really felt there was a beginning that, although simple, would set the tone of the series nicely. Hopefully this prequel will soon be available on my website.
It’s been over a month since ‘A Darker Blood‘ was published, and I just love the idea that people can finally read my work. It is strange that after all of these month’s (or years) to finally be able to share the world I created inside my mind.
