Finishing up New Olympus, which turned into a bigger pain in the butt than I expected. I've never had trouble with short stories before, but this time it's taken a lot longer than I expected to put them together, especially the ones where I had to integrate backer created characters into them (it was a neat idea for the Kickstarter campaign but I kinda screwed up the implementation. Mea culpa).
After that's done, I'll be turning to Doomsday Duet. One complaint I've been hearing from many readers is that Armageddon Girl had too many POV characters. I may have been overly ambitious there. I'm considering narrowing the focus of the novel and writing a parallel novel dealing with the stories that are part of the plot but not directly related to the Christine Dark story line. That novel would not be part of the New Olympus arc but would fill in readers on stuff that would happen "offstage" during the events described in Doomsday Duet and The Apocalypse Dance.
I'd love to hear any input (either in comments or e-mail) about this idea. It would mean a lot less (one-third to one half fewer) POV characters in the two follow-up novels, and a fourth novel that would be "optional" for readers. It would follow the deeds of Chastity Baal, Artemis and Swift, and a few others not directly involved in Christine's adventures. Opinions and comments are welcome.
