Cassie Scot Update

The publication of the first Cassie Scot novel is still a year off, but I am pleased to say that I have recently turned in my second manuscript in the series, tentatively entitled “Secrets and Lies.” The third book, “Mind Games,” is in final revisions, and I expect it to be finished soon.

What does this mean? It means that while you do still have to wait a year for Cassie Scot: Paranormal Detective, the sequels will be arriving within months of one another. I know how it is when you read a book and have to wait a year for the sequel — you can’t remember what happened in the first one! I hope to spare you that.

The final volume in the Cassie Scot series is still in its drafting phase, but I am hopeful that it will still come out soon after the others — I do, after all, have a few months leeway here. 🙂

No word on editing or cover art yet. For the record, Twilight Times Books sends its books through at least two editors. The first tends to be more thorough, looking at the big pictures (plot structures and inconsistencies) as well as the little things. The second is more of a thorough copy edit. As you can imagine, the first takes longer, so I don’t expect to be working on those edits until this summer.

I’m still very excited! I’ve got some great surprises for you in each book, and I’m learning more and more about my own characters as I revise. There may very well be spin-off sequels, dealing with some of the secondary characters, after Cassie’s story is finished. (But I promise her story is over in four books!)
