Not a crazy question at all. Unfortunately, I don't have a definitive answer or a definite deadline. Currently, I am in the early stages of research and writing on the next SSI book which will be Trey and Fee's and is titled An Ill Wind.

IF, and that is a big if, I can get through the first draft without another life crisis (and those seem to happen more and more frequently as I age), I should have a final, but not "final" first draft by the end of the year. A first draft just means I have the basic plot down and need to go back and polish and tweak and make things flow more smoothly. For example, Storm Warning went through 4 other intense drafts before I was ready to final line edit it (and it went through three line edits) and consider it done. It's the final revising and editing process that takes so long for me -- and while I have help from crit buddies and beta readers for that, it is still all on me.

General ballpark goal: I am aiming for Spring 2016.

Since I do not plan on attending the RT convention next spring, that will give me a nice clear field to get the book done and polished.

And all of the above depends on life not throwing me curveballs and the characters not going deaf and dumb in the middle of the book. :)

Thanks for being eager for the next book -- that's one of the things that keeps me writing -- well, that and all the characters in my head demanding their story be told. Hugs.(less)
Monette Michaels Hi, Kim -- So sorry I didn't see your last question on SSI. I usually get notifications - as I did this time. Hmmm, wonder what went wrong 4 months…moreHi, Kim -- So sorry I didn't see your last question on SSI. I usually get notifications - as I did this time. Hmmm, wonder what went wrong 4 months ago?

Anyway, I am currently working on SSI #4, Tweeter's story, after a two-month forced hiatus due to my husband having open heart surgery in early Feb.

So, I am two months behind and am hoping -- as long as nothing else happens with his health -- to get this out sometime in June. I can't promise that since my publisher's schedule has to be addressed also.

All I can promise is - I am working on it, it is going to be a long one like Cold Day in Hell, and I will be setting up some future books in this one also (more Fee and Trey mentions (Book 5) and maybe a novella for Conn Redmond and for Sam Crocker, who both make appearances in this book). Thanks for asking. Sorry I couldn't be more exact, but life often has a way of throwing giant curve balls -- and it tossed me a doozy this year. Good news is -- hubby seems to be progressing well and that makes me very happy.(less)
