As you know on Friday I bring you new books and authors. J.P. McLean has already been my guest before and her series (initially a trilogy, but these things have a way of growing…) The Gift has featured with pride of place before. I knew that the next novel was nearly ready, and the author has been so kind as to send us her reflections about her writing and where she is now. And here, the floor is yours, J. P.:
Thank you, Olga for once again hosting me on your Friday guest author feature. It’s great to be back.
I’m at an interesting crossroads. Having recently released Penance, the fourth book in the contemporary fantasy series, The Gift Legacy, I’m now ready to start a new project. The decision is whether to take the road that leads to the next book in the series, or take the road not yet travelled, and write a brand new story instead.
On the familiar road, a small but devoted group of readers, who love The Gift Legacy, cheer me on (a writer’s dream!). I know the terrain and the characters and just how to tamper with their brakes to heighten the excitement.
There are no street lamps on the second road and no map. The characters taunt me with their thumbs out, but do I dare pick them up? Will we get along in the tight confines of the car?
What if there’s a curve so sharp we crash?
Hmm. Decisions, decisions. If you have thoughts on the matter, I’d love to hear them.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks so much J.P.!
And here, I had to tell you a bit more about Penance
When Emelynn Taylor chooses a man’s life over a secret, she draws the attention of the wrong people. International Covert Operations wields the secret like a weapon to coerce the Tribunal Novem’s cooperation. And all ICO wants in exchange for protecting the secret is Emelynn’s services.
With a new job, a new handler and no choice, Emelynn goes undercover to unravel a dangerous drug ring. She soon finds herself in a deadly game of cat and mouse in which she breaks all the rules: the same rules that got her into trouble in the first place.
Here the links in Amazon, although you can check J.P.’s website for more links and information:
Thanks so much to J.P. McLean for her book and her reflections (I hope you’ll give her some suggestions), thanks to you all for reading, and you know, like, share, comment and CLICK!
Ah, and as you know, I do reviews for BTS e-Magazine and just in case you want to have a look at the new number, here it is (there are a couple of mine):
