Today I put some time into rethinking my schedule in the coming months. I have (at least) one more book to write in the Redemption series, and this month I started writing a new series as a Camp NaNoWrimo project. I plan to publish this new one, tentatively titled Demons & Dracaena (Annie Hawthorn Book #1), but I'm not sure when it will be out. I want to get more Waldgrave books done this year, but I kept shuffling things in my brain about which of these projects deserved the most priority.
After some soul searching and a lot of reading how other authors handle their multiple series, here is what I have come up with. I am writing on Annie Hawthorn #1 until the first book is completed, and then I will go back and write book #7 of Redemption in August, which will have a tentative release date of January/February 2016. In September, I will focus on writing a new book set in the Waldgrave universe, following Lena and Griffin as they move onto Lenore's Island.
If you are one of the fans awaiting the release of more Waldgrave books, please follow this blog for updates. The brave ones can also email me directly (I love emailing with readers), and I'll send you more personalized updates on when those books will be out: email@example.com.
I read some interesting things from other authors about finishing a series in its entirety before moving on to the next, but one thing that really resonated with me was someone who talked about not wanting to let characters go. Rotating what you write allows you to come back to each of the worlds you have created and revisit them and the characters, and prolong the time you get to spend with them over months or years instead of one furious blitz to get the series done. I like my worlds and my characters, so I think this is what I'm going to try.
Redemption #7 still doesn't have a name, but it's going to need one soon. I guess the new additions to Waldgrave will, too. That's my next topic for thought.
