I loved your first one and am anxious for the second – Loni.
Right now I am working on a massive edit of the first novel in that series. During that time, I will be searching for a publisher or literary agent. If I do not find one, I will then have to take the extra time to find a manufacturer, and get the money needed for them to print my novel. Once I get my first book in stores, I will then begin working on the second. I want to make sure that my first book is doing well before beginning the second one. At the moment I am not entirely sure how long it will take for the second to come out. My guess is a couple years. It may be sooner, but only time will tell!
Thanks for your question!
