I really hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unless the miracle happens and I get a wild writing hair, the third Jagara book will not be released this spring. I’m not sure when it will be out but it will definitely be delayed.
Due to personal happenings and just plain lack of my characters speaking to me, I haven’t written very much of Unbroken. This saddens me because not only have I been dying to write this particular story, but I know how excited and impatient some of you are for the next book.
There is a shimmer of silver lining though. After talking it out with my insider, I realized (partially) where the story is going. Unfortunately, it isn’t where I thought. UNBROKEN can’t be told in a single book, so it will progress throughout several others. Depending on how it plays out, it may eventually be finished as an individual story. Until I know for sure, I am contemplating the book I originally had as book #3 of The Jagara Series, which is still untitled at the moment.
I am gonna take a couple weeks off from writing to spend some time with the family and catch up on some reading…or re-reading. 😉 And after I finish my much needed break, I’m gonna dig back into the Jagara series…hopefully with a fresh mind. It’s times like these when I’m glad to be an Indie. No deadlines to stress over, but I am always hopeful for either an easier/cheaper way to promote my work or to catch the eye of a good agent.
On a good note: I was able to get my ‘secret project’ finished and after my Think Tank/Beta Readers tore into it, I rewrote a few parts and added some things. I know there will be more edits once it’s in the hands of my editor. Unfortunately, I’m not sure when that will be. But I will keep yall posted with any updates.
Until next time,
