August 17th, 2012 is a day that will firmly stick out in my mind, the day when An Airship Named Desire was released with Hazardous Press. However, as the press is slowing down and I am moving full steam ahead, I recently requested the rights back. Why? Because I’m going to write the sequel, and perhaps even more. It wasn’t until Stolen Petals came out this year that I realized how much I missed that universe and how badly I wanted to return.
So obviously, I’ll have to re-release An Airship Named Desire, but there’ll be good incentive to pick it up when it comes out. After all, the talented editor of Stolen Petals will be going through the work with her scalpel, and I’m in the process of lining up the talents of a phenomenal cover artist. Although I get this little twinge in my heart at the thought of An Airship Named Desire no longer being available on Amazon, it’s temporary, as I’ll hopefully re-release before the year’s end.
And 2016 will hold a whole new adventure for the cast of the Desire–I’m already 10,000 words in and the characters are all returning to me like I never left them.
I learned a lot from Bea, and I’m pulling a maneuver from her book–going with my gut and pulling the bold and daring move. After all, that’s what Aries do best. For now, I’ll leave you with a snippet from the new book:
“Well, let’s get going to the Rusty Scupper. We’ve got a client to meet with and potentially confront.” I grinned at the man Isabella had pinned. “You, as the luckiest of lads, get to be leverage.”
