Goodreads asked J.J. Ward:

What are you currently working on?

J.J. Ward Getting an agent. I doubt I'll succeed. Taking on a new writer's always risky. If no publisher wants him or her, how's that going to make you look? And what if it keeps on happening? Better to play as safe as you can for as long as you can.
