Hi Amanda! Sorry it took me so long to get to this. You're the person to ask me a question, so let's just say I wasn't looking for it. :)

So Breaking World. As it stands right now, David and I have hit a crossroads with this series. The sales have been lagging at best, and the reception as compared to David's other books is a bit meh. Also, the monetary payoff, when coupled with the time spent on a single volume, doesn't really equate; the carryover of readers from the Breaking World series to my individual catalog has been nil. These books are large, the plot dense, and they take quite a bit of time to construct. With my financial situation in flux at the moment, I can't justify spending 18 more months writing a series that may not be beneficial to my career.

However, that doesn't mean they *won't* be written. All three books are plotted out already, after all. Once I'm at a place where I feel comfortable dedicating the amount of time needed for this project, I'll certainly dive back in. Until then, I feel the conclusion of Blood of Gods can stand pretty well on its own.

Thanks for the question, Amanda!(less)

In 2011, I was feeling in a rut. I had a book to write, and the idea was solid in my head, but for whatever reason, my inspiration failed me. In order to remedy the situation, I called a good friend of mine and challenged her to a writing competition. The details of the challenge aren't necessarily important; what is important is the fact that simply being engaged in a challenge that I could ac... Read more of this blog post »

J.M. I really dig how you review books with a five-score grading system to average out! That's much more thorough than how I do it. I may have to adopt your system.
