I’ve been working on my action/adventure thriller sequel for a while now. I love this series because it’s set right here on Earth only a decade or two in the future. But it always takes me a while to shift my brain from wormholes, FTL, droids and aliens to sea level rise, mysteries, and international intrigue.
Which means my writing slows down considerably. It’s on my list to work on. I’m actually practicing some outlining methods that I hope will improve my output speed. Last year was a three book release year, this year, two.
If you read the above and were left scratching your head, don’t fret. :)
I write under the pen name J. Beckett. Right now the only book out is Island of Secrets, that more than one person has compared to Cussler. I don’t let that kind of thing go to my head, but it does give me the fuel to keep doing it.
I’m actually getting a new cover done for Island of Secrets so that I can kind of ‘relaunch’ it with book 2 coming out.
The aim is to release ‘Dangerous Baggage’ A working but front-runner title. Later this year. Fingers crossed.
