Nightingale update

Hey folks!
I'm currently working on two different manuscripts right now--one with Autumn Doughton (we had so much fun writing Steering the Stars we decided to write another one!) and, the one a lot of you have been waiting for: Nightingale!

For a while there I was feeling NO INSPIRATION for Nightingale at all and I was really disappointed thinking that maybe I waited too long to start it and it was too late.
I'm happy to report that I've been unable to stop thinking about Nightingale for a month or so now and though I'm writing a lot slower than I've done in the past (we're in the process of selling our house so we can move), I'm really happy with what I have outlined for this story.
What can I tell you about it so far?
Well, I'm SO glad you asked.

1) It will introduce a brand spanking new character named Wren.
2) There will be lots of Grey ;)
3) It will start off in Wamego, KS (which is a small town near Manhattan where Mia/Lark is from).
4) Though it will feature a new character, our old favorites will be present.
5) If you have a super keen memory for details, you might recall a little bit about the history on why the Light Elves decided to withdrawal from human interactions? That will play an important part of this new story. :)


I'm writing this story a little differently than I did with the Lark trilogy. This time I plan to write out the ENTIRE thing and then decide whether to publish it as one large book OR (depending on exactly how long it is) splitting it up into three books.

I have the entire storyline outlined though so right now I'm just going to write write write and then when I finish, I'll make the decision and I'll let you guys know.

If I do decide to release it in three different installments, each book will release very close together--I'm thinking one a month for three months.
