Reader Question Round-Up  

I got a bunch of short-answer (not essay!) questions from readers recently, so I’m going to do a hit-and-run with some of them!

Pamela asks Will we get more Negotiator series books?

There’s a faint possibility that in the looooong term the answer to this is yes, but for all intents and purposes, no. :)

Deborah asks Of all your books, do you have a favorite character?

Yes. :)

Kathy asks: Now that Walker Papers is wrapped up, what’s next? Will you continue in the same genre or branch out into something new?


Something totally entirely wildly new and different, in fact. I’m halfway through writing a Regency romance! *laughs* I’m having a stupendously good time with it, actually, and despite the fact that it’s way out of my usual genre, I honestly can’t imagine anybody who reads my stuff in general not enjoying it. This is the quick-paced comedy of manners sort of Regency, not dark angstful romance, and I really am just having a terrific time writing it. It makes me giggle. :)

The market is interesting for short Regencies right now, so I don’t know yet how it’ll reach the masses, but sometime in the relatively near future it’ll be out there in the world and I really rather ridiculously hope my regular readers will give it a chance. :)

I have something fantasy-based in the works, too, but it’s nowhere near far enough along to talk about yet. :)

Re: squeee!
You have *no idea* how heartened I am by this. It's nerve-wracking, leaping into a new genre! :)

RRA-L? Regency Romance Authors-list? Is this something I should maybe be familiar with? :)

Re: squeee!
It was the link that did it, yeah, and I'm glad you commented again because for some reason LJ doesn't tell me that a suspicious comment is in the queue. I'll have a look at the group, *thank* you!!!

If it has your name on it, I'll give it a try, even if that isn't what I normally read.

Also, read anything interesting lately? (Ahem.)

i've been meaning to email you all week. I can't get the file to open on my ereeader and I don't read books on computer screens. :( Is there any chance you've got an epub version of it I could try?

Don't know why it won't open on the ereader (and I won't read books on the computer either, if I can help it). Did I send it to you as a PDF? There's no epub version yet, alas. I know that with my Kindle, my author friends can send me things in manuscript form and I can email them to my Kindle, or if I add their email addy's to the "accepted" list, they can send the docs directly to my Kindle.
