One question, or suggestion, or comment, that has popped up more than any other in the reviews of Nickel Plated, has been folks mentioning a series, or sequel. I really appreciate the efforts of anyone who has been nice enough to write a review or blog about my work, and I love that you enjoyed Nickel enough to wonder as to his future endeavors.
Last summer, when Nickel Plated was going through the editorial process, I decided it was high time that I get back on the writing wagon. The second Nickel book was at that time just a twenty page teaser, I’d put the project aside to concentrate on trying to sell Nickel Plated. Not to mention, an unsold novel really doesn’t need a sequel. Nickel Plated being picked up changed things.
It took about five seconds to dive back into my imaginary friends devious little head, and once I was there it was like a glass of cold water on a hot day. The writing came easy, and early last fall, the sequel to Nickel Plated was finished.
As for publication, I have no clue. I’d love for AmazonEncore to put the sequel out, and I hope I get to work with every single person that helped to make Nickel Plated be everything that it was. At this point it’s just a time thing, but to ease anyone who was wondering, yes, there is a sequel, and the edit before the REAL edits get going is finished. I wish I could say more, but unfortunately, we’re all going to have to wait a little while for Nickel to ride again.
