Not quite. Still waxing.
The calendar predicts another week of celestial twisting, turning, and spinning before the universe once again reveals to us our glorious moon’s full face. I know that my Author Welcome declares that I’ll post every full moon, but I also pledged to try to break one of the blogging expert’s rules every time I posted. An impromptu blog fulfills that pledge quite nicely, I think.
And I wanted to thank all those who responded to my question, “To sequel, or not to sequel?” The feedback is overwhelmingly in favor of sequels. Early and often, you said. And some of you were honest enough to add the caveat, ‘as long as my subsequent novels meet or exceed the quality of FACE OF OUR FATHER.’ I’ll do my very best.
So you’ve given me my marching orders. And I’ve begun the march. I will carry out my mission. The character arcs are set. The plot outlined. Many scenes are already drafted. And…drum roll please…the sequel’s opening line is written. That’s no small task for an author.
Barring my demise, I promise that FACE OF OUR MOTHER will publish no later then the end of 2016.
