Not only are we still working on three different projects at once, but I am also finishing my master’s program. And the holidays are coming. A sane person probably wouldn’t participate in NaNoWriMo while wrapping up their degree or while preparing to bake (literally) hundreds of cookies to hand out in holiday gift boxes, but I am in no way sane. Not even halfway there.
Anyhow, we can be a bit overeager, so here’s this month’s update on our writing projects in clearer terms. The Druid’s Gift is set to release December 5, 2017! But you already knew that because we can’t stop talking about it on social media. This book takes place in the same world as The Dryad, and you might even recognize a place or two on the map (we have a MAP!). We are about halfway done writing the first draft to a full length novel following The Dryad. There WILL be characters from the novella in the new book, so take from that what you will. 😉 The words written in NaNoWriMo will be used to finish up this draft and Exchanged’s short story sequel. Which brings us to Exchanged. We’ve learned a LOT since we released it less than a year ago. Like most authors looking back on their first works, there are things we would change and improve if we wrote it again now. Though we originally intended for the sequel to be longer, we’ve decided to include Aubriel and Callannon as side characters in future books as opposed to main ones. Not to say this will stay true forever, but once we release the short story, we’ll turn our focus to the other two series we started. Oh, yeah, and we’re about 1/3 of the way through the sequel to The Druid’s Gift. ^_^ To be fair though, I started writing this sequel before deciding to make The Dryad part of a series. So if you end up loving Druid’s Gift (and I have a feeling you will ;), know that more will be on the way. Love, hate, or feel curious about something? Shoot us a message. <3 Vanessa
