Summertime and the Writing’s Easy

Today is the first official day of summer vacation for Spawn. That means my days will now be filled with juggling mom stuff and very important writing stuff. You’d think I’d be stressed, but I find that being forced to juggle makes me twice as productive. Go figure.

Progress on Blue-Blooded Vamp is moving right along. I plan to have this draft done by next Friday, which will give me about six week of revision time. Six weeks may not sound like a long time, but, trust me, it is. I usually have half that time.

I think most of you know by now that Blue-Blooded Vamp will be the last book in the Sabina Kane series. Already, people are asking me what’s next. The truth is I don’t know. I have an idea for a new UF series and plan to start writing that proposal as soon as I turn this book in. But I also have other projects I’d like to focus on for a while. I’ve been under contract for so long I forgot what it’s like to just play with whatever I want to play with on any given day.

Don’t get me wrong, I do not plan on taking a long break. Just a month or so of developing some projects and seeing where my fancy takes me. In addition to books ideas, I’m also working on some screenwriting projects with a writing partner. I don’t talk about those here much because, well, my main focus for the last three years has been books. But some recent promising events may shift that focus. Or they may not. Who knows? I guess what I’m saying is the next six months should be pretty interesting. And I plan on enjoying the hell out of it.

In the meantime, though, I’ve got to give Sabina’s last book the attention it deserves. I’ll probably be scarce here for a couple of months, but I might pop into every now and again to check in.

    Oh no the last book?! I just got hooked thanks to one Mark Henry! Great now where an I going to get my good reads! Super Series by the way I finished the whole series in 3days! Couldn’t put Sabina away! I love a strong female character thanks!

  2. I can’t stop myself reading books. I am addicted to it especially when the story is so nice that I can’t wait to read the following books related to it.

  3. Why did you decide to end the series? What if you change your mind a few years from now?

  4. Go get Cain Sabina! I love the scene where Sabina sets out to Italy to find the location of Cain’s lair. I can’t wait for the next series! Jaye Wells you are one of my favorite writers!

    Tim, I decided to end the series because it was time. Originally, I’d planned for it to be a trilogy but realized I needed more books to fully realize Sabina’s journey. But to draw it out past the ending I originally envisioned would require forcing more conflict, which I think would do both the series and the readers a great disservice. There’s always the possibility I will revisit side characters in the future, but I’m ready to focus on creating new worlds to explore.

    Stephanie,

    Don’t worry. I’m not going to stop writing altogether. There’s more snark in my future.
