I’m behind on my emails again. I used to read them late at night, while doing feeds with the boys, but the light from my mobile has started to wake them up. So now, when doing night feeds I just kinda sit there in the dark and try not to fall asleep. I don’t always succeed. This does mean, however, that as of today I have 350 emails unread in my inbox. All wonderful blog posts from you fine people, things that I want to catch up on as I feel horribly cut off from you all.
The only reason that number is as low as it is (low, you cry in disbelief!) is because I’ve been using my ‘time off’ to read through some of the emails. And reading the occasional one or two during the day. I imagine that taking part in NaNoWriMo this year will only make it harder to stay on top of them, but its about balance. I’m planning to be leisurely about it this year, so I might use weekends for blog related stuff, rather than continuing on whatever novel I happen to be writing.
And what novel will I be writing? Well that’s still up to you guys. ^_^ This is idea number three and in a move that might (not) surprise you, its about vampires. In fact, its the next novel in line after SORB, which, of course is a trilogy. The second part of the story follows Ileandra directly after the events of the first where things hot up a bit for her family. It’s not quite a rewrite, but something I’ve started several times and never been able to finish – probably because I was still agonising over SORB. With that done and dusted, its time to keep moving on.
Working Title: Walking The Razor’s Edge
Summary: Coming to terms with her new life as a vampire, the peace Ileandra experiences is shaken up when Red Fang kidnap her new friend Shawn Jackson.
I agonised over that summary, not wanting to give you too much of a spoiler to the SORB. If I were to tell you more, then most of the surprises of SORB are moot. So, you’ll have to wait I’m afraid. :p
But this would be yet another interesting project to play around with and perhaps a sensible novel to work on since SORB is now done. Let me know what you think!
