My original plan was to have book two in the Nosy Newfie series out in early February, so three months after the first book released. I figured that was a good timeline that I could meet on a fairly consistent basis.
But writing is a funny thing. And it turns out that about a third of the way into the new novel I realized I was writing the wrong one. Based on how people were talking to each other and interacting, what I’d written needed to be book three in the series not book two.
So that sent me back to the starting point. (This after about three false starts on the novel trying to make sure it was that perfect mix of light-hearted murder mystery and wasn’t going too dark and that the love interest storyline wasn’t taking too much of the focus or moving ahead too fast.)
Which is all to say that there will be a novel two. And it will be out sooner rather than later. But probably more late February than early February.
And don’t hold me to that. Although that’s definitely the goal I will delay publication if I have to to make sure the book is enjoyable to read. I love Maggie May and Miss Fancypants and want to be able to keep writing these books for you, but that means getting it “right” before I hit publish.
