RJ Blain suffers from a Moleskine journal obsession, a pen fixation, and a terrible tendency to pun without warning.

When she isn't playing pretend, she likes to think she's a cartographer and a sumi-e painter. In reality, she herds cats and a husband, and obeys the commands of Tsu Dhi, the great warrior fish.

In her spare time, she daydreams about being a spy. Should that fail, her contingency plan involves tying her best of enemies to spinning wheels and quoting James Bond villains until she is satisfied.

It's currently on the back burner, although I have been doing groundwork plotting the book. Originally, it was going to be a trilogy, but I'm going to conclude Sean's story in the next volume, so it'll be a longer title as a result! I'm expecting 2019 or 2020, but things might change!(less)

I don't hate the series. I hate when people sabotage my other works because they only want me to write the Mag Rom Com series.

But yes, it's being planned, but it won't be released as a standalone. It will be in a collection/anthology probably. It depends. (But yes... eventually.)

SKP is basically the worst-performing book in the entire series at this point, so it's fairly low on the to-do list. I might give it a new cover, though, and see how that helps.(less)

On Writing: Conceptualizing a Novel (Standalone or Series.)

Dear humans,

Buckle up. This is going to be a long ride. Get a drink, make sure you’re not reading while drinking, as we have a hobby of making as many people spit on their devices as possible, and enjoy the show!

To begin with, we would like to offer a bribe of us being adorable. We went to the V-E-T a while back, as we needed our vaccinations and a check-up. We did not appreciate this, as evidence

I'm definitely considering adding them into a future anthology for the series, but I don't know if they'll get novels.

The only reason I haven't written a second Shane and Marian novel is the lack of a solid story idea, and I won't write a book when I See Full Answer
