I spent today…well actually, the last few days…re-reading Tentacles in preparation for the third, as yet un-named, third installment. I hesitate to write this here because it might mislead you into thinking that the third Cryptid Hunter book will be out soon. It won’t be. It will be a long time before you get a chance to read it. First I have to finish the rough draft. Then I have to revise it over and over again. Then I send it into the publisher. Then they revise it over and over again. Then I revise it over and over again. Then about a year, or year and a half later, the book comes out. This is how all books are written and published.
I’ve gotten a lot of emails asking when the third CH book is coming out. In fact, I got at least a dozen emails about this the DAY AFTER it came out. I know this means you like the book, and the characters, for which I’m very grateful. But keep in mind that it takes a lot longer to write a book, than it does to read a book.
I usually don’t read my books again. The only exception are sequels. I read (actually kind of skim) the previous book looking for details that I might have forgotten during the various drafts before it was published. The skimming takes a lot time, because as I’m reading I’m thinking about the current story, madly scratching down notes and ideas that I might use as I write the draft.
I’m not posting this to tease you. I’m just letting you know what I’m working on. I’m also working on the 3rd I,Q novel (the second I,Q should be out by the end of the week), and two other books.
