Currently, I’m working on the third Toil and Trouble Trilogy book, and if all goes well, I should have that ready this fall, hopefully before Halloween.
I’ve been feeling a little down lately, because I can’t seem to get anything besides the Jason and Azazel books to sell very well. While I’m quite grateful to the seven people who purchased Helicon books, I had really hoped that series would take off quickly. As it is, it’s going to take some time to find its audience, and since I have a great deal of fun with that world, I’d probably keep writing them for those seven people, even if no one else ever read it, because I really love it.
However, Jason and Azazel are not paying the bills all by themselves. I’ve got savings, and I’m okay for a bit, but I’m currently only making enough to cover half my expenses each month. I’m not saying this to beg anyone for money. I’m running a business, and currently I’m creating product that not enough people want. (Although there is a donate button to your left, if, you know, you felt led…)
This has been making me feel a bit glum. I kept thinking, “I don’t KNOW what they want. Jason and Azazel are in a coma, and I can’t write sequels to That Last Onset. There’s nowhere left to go!” Then I realized that I should ask. What would you like to read? What would you like me to write? So here are all the ideas I’ve had recently. Please vote in the poll for the one you would be most likely to buy.
As long as my muse cooperates, I’ll write the one that gets the most votes. (If you like more than one option, vote anyway, but you can make clarifications in the comments.)
