Generally speaking, I prefer to write a book as quickly as possible. I feel that if I start a project and put it aside for any amount of time, it's difficult to get back into the original frame of mind. Plus, dragging it out too long tends to make the project just a bit stale and I start to lose my original passion on the topic.
The interesting thing is that I probably wouldn't have such a pleasing conclusion, had I finished this specific manuscript months ago. In many ways, I had to evolve in my own life before my main character could do the same. Sometimes it is interesting how real life and fiction tend to overlap.
I'm pretty excited about digging in and starting the fourth book in the very near future. In the meanwhile, I'm looking at various options, which include finding an agent. I'm definitely anxious to see what the future brings me!
I will be releasing further details on my book in the future, but for now, I would like to share some songs that were inspiring to me while writing it.
The first is Bullet with Butterfly Wings from the Smashing Pumpkins. Anyone familiar with 90s music will quickly recognize this song. The first line is, "The world is a vampire, sent to drain" which represents a central theme in my latest book in both a literal and symbolic way.
Well, I am off to start another book! Keep in touch and keep reading!
