As the publication date to books 2 and 3 of the Shadowkill Trilogy comes closer, as well as two smaller projects (a nonfiction diabetes travel guide and a fiction novelette), I now have a decision to make: what to do next?
Trust me, there are no lack of stories. Here's what I have to choose amongst:
A new superhero series (this has the potential to be an ensemble, like The Avengers, The Defenders, and Suicide Squad)
An epic fantasy series
A cozy mystery series
A YA adventure series
A romance story (or a series?)
A variety of short stories in varied genres
Shorter works in the Central Division Series
Future Central Division Series novels
A stand-alone horror novel set on a Minnesota lake (already written, but will use the draft as an outline and will completely rewrite)
A deer hunting horror story (this one is also written, but needs tons of work--so, in other words, will be completely rewritten)
A stand-alone horror novel that may be published in 4 parts (again, this one was written long ago, but will again be completely rewritten)
A spin-off series from the Central Division Series, based on my novelette Guest of Honor
Again, no lack of stories here. Also, this does NOT include a number of other projects of varying length and potential. Some I have titles, some have been written (one of these may end up being a novel instead of in its current short story form), and others I have a rough sketch written.
