I’m nearing the end of the “Piercing the Veil” trilogy… my goal is to have Book 3 (“Impossible”) out by the end of July (which might be a little ambitious, but a lot of the first round of editing is done already). I knew that I’d be really sad when I finished the trilogy if I didn’t already have another project coming down the pipeline. After all, I’ve been working on this series since 2008 in some capacity… Peter and Lily are some of my best friends at this point!
So last week, while on vacation, I was running on the beach in Puerto Rico (which, side note, is one of my favorite things to do — surpassed only by running on the beach in the rain) . When I got to the far end, I stopped to crawl up an outcropping of black rocks, waves crashing around my ankles and sending little black crabs scurrying into crevices while I furiously typed notes into my iPhone. I stayed there for about 30-45 minutes, pacing, asking myself questions and writing down the answers. I’ll just tell you a little bit of it…
The next series is going to be dystopian, set in a futuristic world post-WWIV. After much famine and disease, the world is thrust back into another Dark Ages.
It’s going to be epic, eventually involving not just North America but the world.
There’s going to be a princess. And a prince. And a peasant boy. (You figure that one out.)
It’s going to have a medical flavor to it (after all, that’s what I know. Might be easier than writing about Arthurian legends and quantum physics, which were completely foreign to me).
I can’t wait to start writing it!!!
