My second submission to Dreamspinner Press has been accepted! I’m so very excited about this one. I dragged my feet on my edits before submitting the manuscript and I sort of regret that now. This year has been like living on a crazy farm and I still can’t find my marbles. When I grasp at a few, I end up pushing them out of reach. It’s slightly terrifying but also extremely fun.
World on Fire mixes an introvert and an extrovert with a dash of fantasy. I hope readers enjoy it. One complaint from Undercover Sins was the lack of delving into Demetrius’s head. Third person stories can jump into any character’s head, but I use third person limited. World on Fire is told from Cole’s point of view in third person. When one character is a puzzle, limiting the third person perspective is a way to keep that puzzle a mystery. (That and Lucian’s mind is too fast-paced to safely dive into.)
I’m waiting on word back regarding Water Waltz—my manuscript with demons, angels, devils, and faeries. I’m waiting patiently on that one. I have high hopes for it.
World on Fire is set for a January-February 2012 release. I’ll keep you posted.
