It's official - it's a trilogy!

I'm having a little celebration.  I have just finished writing book three which means it's officially a trilogy!  Woo hoo!  I guess when I finally finish writing Lora's Secret Diary it will be a trilogy of four parts but who's counting?

The third book is as yet untitled.  I still haven't decided what to call it.  It's funny, I can write one hundred thousand words no problem, but I can't for the life of me write a title!

It continues the story of Angel and Miles, six months on from the end of Another Perfect Angel.  Unknown Pleasures have made the big time and have just returned from touring the USA but all is not well in Angel's world.  I won't go into details but the story is much darker than the other two, bad things happen, the characters have to deal with some very difficult situations and personal struggles.

It's not all doom and gloom though.  There is romance, humour, drama, a wedding and more than a few surprises!  The story introduces a few new characters and it's every bit as gripping as the previous two books.  I don't have any plans to continue writing about Angel, although I wrote an epilogue to book three that gives a snapshot of the future of her family.  I really enjoyed writing that so I may revisit them in the future.

I find it difficult to believe I've written three full length novels in less than twelve months, but I have, thanks in no small part to the support of my family and friends.  Writing has become my little obsession and I hope to continue.  I already have an idea for a story, I'm not sure if it will be a novel or a short story, I'll have to start writing and see what happens.  In the meantime I've got book three to edit and proof read and hopefully publish some time in 2013.  No rest for the wicked ; )
