It’s not usually for very long, but whenever I finish something I’ve been working on, I spend a week or two floundering, not knowing what I want to write next. I’d been planning on doing Camp NaNoWriMo this month and getting most of part two of a fantasy trilogy finished, but I spent the first week wrapping up my occult murder mystery (finally!) and I haven’t been able to get moving on the fantasy novel. I’ve written a chapter, but that’s it.
I think I’m finally starting to get in the spirit of the fantasy novel. We’ll see. Edits are beginning on By That Sin Fell the Angels, and that’s a somewhat dark drama, so I may end up taking up the half-finished psychological drama I was working on a month and a half ago.
In the meantime, I haven’t been completely stagnant. I’ve been doing author chats and Blogathons (on my YA blog) and book giveaways. Saturn in Retrograde has been getting good ratings on Goodreads and received a terrific 5-star review on QMO Books!
Seidman has been doing well, too, though it has less momentum, since my James Erich pseudonym is less well-known. But the ratings have been very good! I just need to figure out how to get the word out.
