The sequel to Meeting A Neighbor's Needs was released yesterday by Loose Id, LLC and I'm waiting to hear what readers have to say about it.
I like the story and the characters were fun to work with, but it was interesting to see the difference between the first and second book.
The first book introduced the characters and how they began to bond as a family. This time around the family connection is beginning to teeter due to something both men are denying themselves.
When I look at the other books I've written, I have to admit, there won't be any other books connected to these three characters. At least none that I can see in the near future. With my other books, or should I say series (Diablo Blanco Club) those characters won't shut up. And they keep bringing friends along for the ride.
After reading Rebecca Rose's post here as well as posts on other blogs from various authors, I have to admit writing is what keeps me sane. I want to please the readers, and I'd love to be hugely successful and be able to quit my day job so I can write full time, but I have to be realistic. If I didn't have a day job to go to, I would go crazy.
Writing is a solitary profession. We bury ourselves in bedrooms, offices, studies, or any little cubbyhole we can find in our homes and connect with imaginary people who live and thrive only in our minds. When we put them down on paper we share them with others, but we still produce in isolation. I like the isolation sometimes, but I need to touch base with humanity on a regular basis. It gives me fodder for my stories and reminds me why I prefer writing to real humans. LOL
Okay, I'm rambling, I guess I should go now since the thought process has been crushed and all I can think about is getting to the store before all the jellied cranberry sauce is gone. Have a great day, and a wonderful Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it)!
