Today is the day where I reveal the answer to this question. Five years ago, when Cherry’s first story came out (now titled Dead Girls Don’t Cry), I started the next story, I Know Why the Dead Girl Sings. The document consisted of a single scene and that was pretty much it.
Fast forward to 2016, with book one’s rights reverted back, I realized I needed to write a second book, pronto. Which I did. It took longer than I wanted or expected. Oh well. I got it done but the title had to go because it was too long. Now it’s the name of a chapter instead.
Such is life.
When we last saw Cherry, she’d retired as colony leader and, with a baby on the way, was ready to settle into a quieter life. But then a strange spaceship laden with mysterious revenants landed…
Whatever could go wrong?
As to why dead girls don’t sing, fear not, Cherry will explain all. And you can find out too because the book comes out today.
My goal for 2018 is to write Chase’s Fire, the next book after Lachlan’s Curse.
A question I often get asked (including by my editor!) is – When’s the next Misfortune Cookie book coming out? Well, if all goes well with Chase’s Fire, the sequel, tentatively titled, Misfortunate Soul, is next.
There is one more book in the Undead Space Initiative series, Dead Girls Don’t Lose, but that won’t be until 2019. Cherry and I need a break from each other.
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday season.
After eight years of resisting the inevitable, I have finally taken the Doctor Who plunge. Thanks to Amazon Prime and the insistence of my close friend Lisa G – I started watching the show.
I had a good reason to avoid Doctor Who – despite the stellar praise. Despite the fact I was missing a show I knew I would like. All my close friends watch the show (and I am referring to the new Doctor that started in 2005 . I’ll get to classic Who eventually). It was because once I started watching, I knew I wouldn’t be able to STOP!!
And yes, that is exactly what happened. But, I’m not alone in the madness – also sucked into the Whoniverse – my two sons. Hubby is next. He just doesn’t know it yet.
Of course I picked the near moment when all the 50th anniversary programming is hitting its peak. As expected, I didn’t get much writing done because I’m hooked on Doctor Who. And this Saturday, we’ll be watching “The Day of The Doctor.”
But, I haven’t been a total slacker. Lachlan’s Curse is at the mid-point (@40,000 words). And, even better, I got two thumbs up from my beta readers for Mystic Hero.
For those of you wondering what the fuss is about, check out this trailer.
So Doctor fans, what is your favorite episode (or who is your favorite doctor)? At the moment, Blink is the family favorite.
