When Readers Request A Sequel

September 17, 2018


I released my debut novel, Something's Not Right with Lucy, in January of this year. 


 Like many authors, I anxiously awaited readers' reactions. Sure, my short stories had always been well received, but this was a novel. Over seventy-five thousand words carefully chosen to evoke all sorts of emotions. 


As the first reviews appeared on Amazon, I sighed with relief. My novel was receiving good reviews. Then, it happened. A reader on the Goodreads forum asked the question: when will the sequel be available?


Sequel? I had never planned to write a sequel or a series. "Lucy" was a story I had carried in my head for years; the only story I had chosen to write.


Amazon reviewers also were inquiring about "the"sequel as if I had an ace up my sleeve and would release it any minute.


I had underestimated the readers' investment in the story line, so I imagined how the characters' lives would have evolved over the next twenty years. Then I got busy writing Unraveled Ties.


I am pleased to announce Unraveled Ties has a projected release date in November!


Readers will once again venture into Endover; the sleepy Midwest village where secrets are whispered and never repeated.
