I heard the squeak of the curtains as they opened behind me. I saw my long, black shadow drawn out on the wood floor before me. I felt the warmth of the lights on my back as I stood still, waiting for the first two chords of music to play. As the time approached for the movement to start, I took a deep, cleansing breath and cleared my mind. I didn’t want to think, just dance.
Instead, a single image popped into my mind.
So I’ve been asked by many of you who have already bought and read CAGED (thanks for that) when the next installment of Ruby’s adventures will be published. The short answer is: SOON. Unfortunately, I first need to put it through some rigorous editing and then format it. I’m REALLY aiming to have it in your hands by the end of January, but I’m afraid I might be pushing it with that deadline. I don’t want to sacrifice quality by rushing to publish it. For those of you that follow this blog or Facebook page, you’ll soon be getting teasers (YAY!!!) from the second book, and I’ll do my best to make them as juicy as possible.
I LOVE Haunted. Like Caged, it’s a wild ride with comedy, action, and paranormal mystery. You’ll get to meet some new characters, and get to know some old ones even better, all while following Ruby as she faces new challenges, both supernatural and otherwise. There’s a lot of personal growth that happens for her in this book.
If I had to pick which I liked more, I would personally go with Haunted, though it’s like having to pick a favorite child. I love them differently, but for me, Haunted shows more of the relationship building that (in my mind) drives the series. Caged is like an awesome first date, it hits you hard, rocks your world, then drops you off at home. Haunted is the second date where you dig deeper and learn more, all while having that same giggly feeling you get when things are fresh and new.
I’ll keep you all posted as the process continues.
Teaser will be coming your way on Sunday…you can call me Santa 🙂
