I think I see a light...

At last, the end of 2020 is in sight.  Which is not to say that turning the calendar over to 2021 will magically solve all our problems; it’s going to be more complicated than that.

But it does feel like the light at the end of the tunnel has been switched on.  It’s not all that shiny, and it’s still a long way away, but it finally feels like it’s there.  And that makes a world of difference.

In the meantime, I’m obsessing working diligently on finishing the first draft of the fourth (and last, I think) book in the 'Hybrid' series, which I have given the working title of 'Crusades'.  It has now passed 130k words, and it's just entering the climactic final part.  Without giving anything away, Yaella is still figuring out her life, Zura is still irritated, and there have been explosions. 

Also, because my 3am brain does this, I’ve already been cooking up some ideas for new stories that could come after.  Maybe in the same universe, or maybe not.

I hope everyone has a great holiday season.  Do your thing, whatever it is, and may it bring you happiness and hope.  And maybe snacks; that would be great, too.


  1. Thanks for doing what you do. Looking forward to "Crusades" JJ

  2. Thanks, JJ! I really appreciate it. "Crusades is coming along great; I hope to have the first draft done in the next two weeks.
