Yes folks, it's true. I have an idea for another book, and I hope you like The Earthside Trilogy, because the jump point for this new book comes directly from that universe. It really was a random thought that brought this idea to life - somebody asked me about Progenitor, and I thought about the "miracle healings" that happen in that book and wondered: What if all of those people actually got their wish for another chance at life.
And just like that, an idea was born. What if the dead got another chance at life? What if something happened that brought them back to another world, or another time, after they died on Earth? What happens when you go on living after you don't belong to the world anymore.
We're going to find out. This is the premise for my next book. I've tentatively titled it Trigger, and it's going to be a scifi book that explores what happens after the "miracle healings" in Progenitor. It's still coming together, but this will definitely be a full length book. And while it's in the same universe as Earthside, I would like for it to be a stand-alone book (but if it encourages readers to read Earthside, then that's ok too). I know, I usually shy away from series - but it looks like I'm heading in that direction. Maybe that's not all bad. Writers are encouraged to write series, so maybe keeping it in the same universe will help catch some readers to bring into this world.
I still have plenty of work to do in research and development, but it's possible that I'll be ready to write in a few months. Maybe I'll finally enter National Novel Writing Month again with this one? We'll see!
I read a devotional today that said the Lord gives you ideas to work with Him, and you have a choice to accept it or reject it - but if you reject it, then He'll give it to somebody else. Heck no. Two years ago, I said "yes" to The Earthside Trilogy, so yes, I want to keep on going. Trigger is mine, and I mean to enjoy it and every other book idea He brings me.
That's all today. Take care, and have a great rest of the week.
