I’m often asked the same questions on a regular basis, so I thought I’d create one of those pages where readers can find an answer to those burning questions they’re dying to ask.
Will there be any more books in the Order of the Sicari series?
I have at least three more Sicari stories I’d like to write. At this point in time, they’ve been placed on the back burner to give way for the day job and books that sell. I definitely want to write Marta’s and Draco’s story, which will be more of a novella length, but the deliciously dark and totally redeemable Praetorian Dominus Alessandro is a book I really want to dive into.
Will you write Draco’s story in the Sicari series?
See the question above.
Will you write more about Nicholas and Victoria from Forever Mine? What about Sebastian and Anna?
Sebastian and Anna will have their own book. I actually have three I’d like to write about them The first one will be their meeting and HEA. The book is partially plotted.
The second story will most likely be a novella as I want to revisit Victoria and Nicholas during the happy months they shared before their HEA was achieved (If you’ve not read Forever Mine, click here for more information and an important note from me about the book).
The third story I’d like to write about Anna and Sebastian will be set in the time after the death of their son. If you’ve read the letters Nicholas wrote to Victoria, you might remember that Sebastian was devastated by their first-born’s death. The story line will be about their estrangement as a result of Sebastian’s reaction to their son’s death, and how they find their way back to each other and their final HEA. This may or may not be a novella or a full length book. It depends on where the story takes me.
In all honesty, I’ve held off writing these three stories because I’m not sure I can rise to the standard I set with Forever Mine. I firmly believe that Forever Mine is the best book I’ve ever written. Assassin’s Heart in my Order of the Sicari series is the only one of all my other books that rises to the same level of story telling.
That said, I really do want to write the stories, I know it would be a lot of fun exploring these characters given Anna’s audacious 21st personality and Sebastian’s proper and circumspect manner. In other words, he’s somewhat of a stick in the mud. LOL
I love helping fellow writers, but I am unable to give author quotes, assist with promotional efforts or read your book/manuscript. If I help one person, I am obligated to help another. On the rare occasion that I give a quote or recommend a book, it’s a read I’ve discovered on my own. Please note that I am unable to respond to requests for quotes or information on how to write.
Below are a couple of places you can visit on the web to learn how to write, hone your craft, and network. The list here is neither inclusive nor is it a recommendation. It’s simply a list for writers to check out.
Thank you for your understanding, and the best of luck to you. Monica
