If you’re a regular reader of my infrequent posts—and if you are, thank you very much—then you’ll know that I’m currently working on the sixth book in my Club Aegis series. The cover art is already done for that one, but because I can’t resist the temptation to see what work of art she’ll come up with next, I’ve already asked my wonderful cover artist, Syneca Featherstone, to work on the seventh. You can see more of her wonderful work on her website here.
And that got me thinking. Only books eight and nine remain in my plans for the series, and that’s quite a daunting prospect. Although I’ve written two short novels that aren’t a part of the series, my writing life has revolved around Club Aegis for most of the last five years. When I first wrote The Velvet Ribbon, I had no idea it would lead to a series, much less a series of nine stories, and in some ways, I don’t want to move on—the characters are almost like family—but the time is coming when I will have to leave them to their own devices. They will probably pop up in a spin-off series of four books featuring Lucy’s brothers from Winter’s Fire, but as yet, her siblings have yet to let me in on their stories, so that means bidding a temporary farewell to the club and its members.
So where to next? I have so many other stories planned and/or started, and in different romance sub-genres as well. I wish there were more hours in the day, then I could get these stories out of my head and onto the page, so I can share them with you.
When that time comes, I hope you’ll come on the new journey with me, and enjoy reading those stories as much as you’ve enjoyed the Club Aegis series so far.
