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’s and Anna’s meeting and HEA is tentatively set for release July 2022. The book is almost done. This story didn’t evolve in the way I expected it too. I planned to go in one direction, and the muse said, “umm, no, we’re going this way, and since you’re being stubborn I’m giving you pieces of the book out of order.” It has been a challenge to deal with writing the book because I’ve NEVER written parts of a book out of order.
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 problem with a story of this time is to come up with a conflict that can be resolved quickly to fall into the novella category.
The third book I’ve planned is a second chance romance between Anna and Sebastian. It will be set in the time period immediately 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.
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
