Oh, Brain

NaNo is over, and I (barely) made it to 50k in the end. I missed too many days but caught up in the last week by making lots of insane deals then locking myself away from the family. I didn’t finish the story I was working on, but it’s a long one, so I didn’t expect to.

I stalled out on it yesterday and assumed it was because I got cocky after a 7k day on the 29th, but as it turns out, my brain was merely busy trying to find a way to screw me over. *Sigh* I had a change of plans idea last night that will require a full rewrite. Part of me is like, please, no, but mostly, I’m just happy to be feeling creative. I think the changes will make the book a lot stronger. I’m feeling so good about this story right now that I want to keep working on it in December. I badly need to squeeze in some editing though.

I think people who enjoyed Chaos will probably like Spare Heir, but I haven’t deserted Ava. I’m still working on what has to happen in her next book – there’s a lot to squeeze in. (Speaking of Chaos and Ava, the 99c sale on the first bundles will end after this weekend). I have neglected Harbinger though because I’m waiting to get all three edited close together for consecutive releases, and I can’t do that any time soon. Next projected release is still another short, Secret Self, which will be free to newsletter subscribers as soon as its ready.

I’ll be back before the end of the month with another update – if I survive December. 🙂

  1. Hi Claire,

    I was wondering if you had thought about writing another book on the Chaos series.I would be great to read that Caravan and Brandenburg got together since Drake is no longer into her since she changed and that the kids are bigger and Scarlets powers have grown and how they are handling that and baby Lily and Drakes son… if Cara became pregwith Brenden’s heir … there is so much more that needs to be told … please say yes … I am sure there is way more readers wondering the same or even more then I … lol ..

    Thanks for taking your time to read this and keep up the great work … you are a wonderful writer

      Caravan and Brandenburg made me giggle. So. Bad.

      Cheryl, I have written a short about the next baby in the family (not finished yet though), and I’ve always planned on more books in the world. For example, a short series called Chaos Spies (Cara’s spies see everything), and then a series when the children are all in their teens/grown-up. I have a story in mind for Drake, too, because I would like him to ultimately deal with his… issues. There’s a novella I have on the side that is linked to their world (and will possibly be linked to Scarlet’s story), and I’m currently working on another story that’s loosely linked to that world, so they’re all constantly on my mind.

      The problem is I have too many ideas and not enough time. Anyway, the short answer is that I’m not done with Chaos, so I’m glad you’re still interested in more from these characters. 🙂

      • Hi Claire,
