I'm really excited about this book!
I like the story, the characters, the world, and the possibilities stretching out ahead of me with this just-opened doorway.
I'm already working on the next book in the series, and looking forward to spending a couple of years, at least, sharing the adventures of Rafe and Elmore and Cora (and the tortoises that they live with).
By Amazon's reckoning, it's my 15th book (16, counting a collection I wrote a story for with some friends a few years ago), but WBW makes the 10th book that I can put on my shelf... there's something magic about a printed book.
10 books in 10 years... I'm both proud and intimidated by this achievement.
I've still got lots of books in me: 2-5 in this series, 3 more in the series of children's books I've been working on, and I've got another collection of short fiction in the hands of a few readers, to give me their thoughts on polishing those a bit more before publishing.
Beyond that, I'd like to try and write a horror novel, a cookbook of some of my favorite things to play with in the kitchen, and a book of essays on life with tortoises.
I'm looking forward to the next thing, the next things, but meantime I hope that people enjoy this new book, and will look forward to the ones that follow.
Thanks for reading!
