I am writing a new series, The Book of Red series. My agent is currently shopping it around. I'm also working furiously on a horror/thriller, should be complete soon. And a scifi. Nothing releasing right now, but I'll probably have several in the near future.

How is your book going? I've often thought about doing that too.
