I've started research for yet another new project. This one will be a historical thriller/mystery. I will be researching and writing this with my sister. The research has just begun, so I'll tell you this much: it will take place in the 17th century, most likely in Europe.

This WIP has reached 4000 words! Ideally, this will be a full book, but I don't know yet how long it will be. I still have not found the title, but I will tell you this: the main characters' names are Zev Ethari and Sapphire "Saree" Reed.

I wasn't going to start writing this until after I finished writing Otherworld Book 4, but I caved. I wrote the first 530 words last night. After doing NaNoWriMo, I need a break from Otherworld Book 4, so I'm going to work on this one for a while. No title yet, but I'll put an update here when I find it!
