It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day of the month. Even harder to believe that Beyond Betrayal was released two-and-a-half months ago (and is still hanging around the top 500 books on Amazon!). I fully expected to have Noble Intentions: Season Four completed by now, and in the hands of editing.
Didn’t quite work out that way.
Glad you asked. I introduced a new character in Season Four. Let’s call him… oh, I don’t know… Brett. Any character in Jack’s world is going to serve one of three purposes. On his side, in his way, or out to get him. While I won’t give away which of those pertains to Brett, I will say that there is a history between the two men.
An unwritten history.
So, I set out to create some back story and quickly realized there was just too much. Like, way too much. I then received a revelation whereupon I said to myself, “Self, you must create a story about this past event where Jack and Brett crossed paths.”
And that’s what I did. I tried to convince myself it would be a short story.
Nope. That was never going to happen.
But a novella, that’s doable, right. Right?
It grew past novella stage. And more characters popped in for a visit: Clarissa, Charles, the Old Man, Pierre. Before I knew it, I had a full blown novel on my hands.
And so, after a packed house at the holidays (some twelve people and six dogs), MY dog nearly dying from an intestinal disorder, and now Snowmergedden ravaging the Atlanta metro area and shutting down school for the balance of the week, I am nearly done with this book tentatively titled Thin Line.
Unless the editors and beta readers hate it.
I pray they don’t hate it.
And so, while Thin Line (which might not end up being the title, so hold off on searching Amazon non-stop for it – anyway, if you’re signed up for the mailing list, you’ll be one of the first to know) is off being edited, which will happen sometime next week, I’ll return to writing Season Four.
And I am really excited about that.
If all goes according to plan, Thin Line (insert title disclaimer again) will be out in February, and Season Four will be available by April, give or take a couple weeks.
Stay tuned to this space for a sampling of what the new book has in store
