Good morning everyone!! I’ve been getting a lot of the same question – When is AHW5 coming out? – so I thought I’d address it in a blog post all it’s own, as well as touch on a couple things happening behind the scenes.
First however, a promise: Anything He Wants 5 will be out in August. Do I have a date in mind? Yes. But one of the things I’ve always disliked is setting a date that I’m not yet sure I’ll make – its not fair to readers. There’s a lot going on in the background that I’m trying to sort through as well, and the business side of being your own boss takes up a lot of time.
Which leads me into my next Big Thing: I mentioned I acquired an (awesome, glorious, fantastic) literary agent and he’s been doing a lot to help determine what direction AHW (and it’s subsequent parts – yes, it does continue) will go in the future. I spoke with several NY editors (!!!) at the RWA conference who seemed interested in my stories/series. Have they made any offers? Not yet. Everything is too new and shiny to make any long term predictions, so I’m trying to do the only thing I can: get out AHW5. The future will take care of itself.
In other news, the search for The Dude’s Perfect Bike continues. Yesterday saw me driving out to Timbuktu looking at one possibility that was ultimately a no-go. Pooh. I’m probably the most un-girl-like creature in the world: I hate shopping, or shopping around for best price/quality/etc. I prefer to walk in, see The Perfect Thing on the very first display, and buy it promptly at the nearby cashier. Barring that, buy online. 😉 Of course, there I can spend hours or days hunting for things because, hey, it’s the interwebz – it’s actually FUN. We’re gearing up for the fall motorcycle roadtrip – cant wait to try my hand at writing on the road!! I love visiting oddball places, gets the creative juices flowing.
And just ‘cuz, here’s a picture of a bunny with a pumpkin on its head.
