Usually, I don’t start a book until I’ve finished a manuscript for the preceding book. Apparently, Blood Soaked 5 is going to work in a different way. I found myself in my favorite coffee shop writing serious notes on the plot for #5, and it even has a title: Blood Soaked and Unleashed.
I really hadn’t planned on a fifth in the series. Then again, I hadn’t planned on Blood Soaked and Denied (#4) either. I know that I could wrap stuff up in 4, in such a way as to conclude the zombie storyline. That could be enough.
Number 5 would be almost straight sci-fi, but dark. Based on the notes I’ve made, I’ll be hard-pressed to stay in a good mood while writing it.
I’m going to bet, if you’ve read Blood Soaked and Contagious, and Blood Soaked and Invaded, you might have a clue (based on the title) of what Blood Soaked and Unleashed might be.
Since I’m updating on my progress, we still don’t have a confirmed release date for Blood Soaked and Gone (#3). My wife, superb graphic designer, is still working on the cover art. Let me tell you, she’s particular, and that makes her the amazing creative that she is.
I find myself looking forward to the editing process for #3. I know there are continuity errors, and I’d like to fix them.
I hope everyone is well on the first Monday of June 2014. Cheers.
