The characters from The Knickerbocker Club will not appear in any subsequent books in the near future. I've switched to a new publisher, so the new full-length books will be a completely different cast of characters.

I will, however, be writing shorts surrounding some of the side characters from The Knick Club that I'll give away for free to newsletter subscribers. I had always planned for some of the side characters to get their own stories and I just can't leave them in limbo!

Thanks for writing!

Hi, Cintia.

My advice is to start small. Fear can overwhelm, if we let it. So write something just for you, that no one else will ever see. Get words on a page, then throw it away if you want. Not everything you write will be wonderful, but you can't be afraid to fail. Good luck!
