Thanks so much to those of you who emailed me asking about the Sand Runner series. (I mean it! There’s no better motivation for a writer to finish a book than a reader waiting to read it. So feel free to bug me any time. I love it.)
So… to answer the question.
Yes! I am absolutely writing the next book in the Sand Runner series. In fact, it’ll be at least two more books, because there is too much story to fit into one and I’ve grown attached to some characters and want to bring them back.
It’s taking so long mostly because of Life (moving, moving again, changing jobs, etc.). But another reason is my own creative brain. It’s been spinning new story ideas like crazy lately, anything from short stories to whole series, and I always cave in and drop everything to write them down and sometimes get sucked in for days or weeks. I also took several long dives into the writing craft (raise your hand if you’re a nerd like me and love learning).
On the bright side, once I catch up, I hope to have several new books out relatively soon, and also to get better at staying in touch with my readers. (My dream is to start going to book festivals and such, to meet readers face to face. But I need more books out to make that work. Fingers crossed.)
So thanks again for your messages and your questions. And please stay tuned for book 3 in the Sand Runner series and much more to come!
