Oftentimes writers have to reread what we write. Sometimes it is a character’s description, a recollection of events or even an entire book so that we keep our story straight–and today I had to reread a few blog posts so that I’d know exactly what I’ve announced regarding putting the Officer Series on hold.
So after three or four posts I found it and it was vague! Not only was it vague, it was buried amid newsletter stuff. So today I want to clarify for anyone whose eyes had glazed over at that point–I know mine would have after being bombarded with information in such a way.
My decision to put the Officer Series on hold stems from something out of my control–kind of. Last month, I was approached by a publisher who wanted to buy that series. If I sell it to them, those books will not be available until 2013-2014. That’s a long time away. So I’ve shifted my focus to work on the Banks brothers so that I can have their books done and out this summer/fall. If I do NOT sign with the publisher, I will finish up the Officer books and put them out in the fall/winter. So technically, all I’ve done is just switched the order.
Clear as mud?
