I usually wait a little while after a book is released to begin another one. It's just the way I am. My brain (and my heart, to be honest) needs time to let go and decompress. As much as I sometimes wish I could, I don't write fast, so a 90K word book takes me a while and during all that time, I'm invested in the story heart, mind, and soul.
However, Blood Prophecy was just released last week and I'm already writing. I guess I just couldn't wait. To tell the truth, I finished Blood Prophecy months ago and even though that book took a lot out of me, I was pretty much ready to begin again. I just didn't know how ready.
To say that I seem to have hit some fertile writing area would be an understatement. I've begun Blood Craving, the 6th book in the Sons of Navarus series; I've also begun the first book in a Sons spin-off with another type of paranormal creature; I'm plotting out another historical novella set in the Victorian Era; and I'm continuing a contemporary story I began a while back.
Woohoo! This girl is smokin'! LOL
I hope that this summer is as productive as my summer 2011 was. Wish me luck!
