Yes, A Thousand Perfect Things is. I felt that Tori Harding's story was finished by the end. But I do always try, at a book's conclusion, to give a sense of the characters moving forward, living complete lives beyond the defining events of the story, the most memorable challenge of their lives. When I do this, sometimes readers feel there may be sequel in store. Not this time! My next work will be a series, though.(less)

Somehow I never got a notice from Goodreads on questions. Anyway, apologies! I don't consider that I ever have writer's block, at least not in the sense most people mean it. I sometimes struggle *between* books, unable to decide what to write next. But when I have a work in progress, I set weekly page goals and then I write whether it is any good or not. And then, if indeed the scene never warmed up and took off, I just revise it extensively. (less)
