I've handed in my ROR book and am going through withdrawal. It's set in a tropical paradise with a dangerous underbelly. My mind is full of ideas to make the world richer/scarier, crank the tension higher and push the characters further for the next book.
But my next project is writing book two of King Rolen's Kin. This opens in midwinter. Meanwhile outside it is 30 plus degrees and the southern states are experiencing a record breaking heatwave. I'm experiencing a weird sort of dissonance.
No more grumbling. Back to work!
