Book Five?

Hello readers,

I thought I'd check in and drop of few lines.  I might have mentioned that I recently wrapped up the first draft of the last book in the Scarlet Hopewell Series, and as it turns out, while still technically true, there will no longer be four books in the series.  Instead, there will be five.  Now, I promise this is not a drag things out kinda of thing.  It turns out that there was just way too much story to tell for a single fourth volume.  The good news is the story is complete and will be delivered to you all in a timely manner.  You will certainly not have to wait five years between books only to then be taunted by an excellent TV series while you wait desperately for the next volume with no apparent conclusion in sight.  I speak of course hypothetically and am not in any way directing these comments at a very specific author.
Meanwhile, Scarlet and the Dragon's Burden has begun picking up steam and has seen the top of the charts on Amazon in many genre categories, which is fantastic.  So far, everyone seems to be enjoying Dragon's Burden as much if not more than Scarlet and the Keepers of Light.  According to reliable sources (and I don't mean just my family) book three, Scarlet and the Queen of the New World, is even better.  Sorry, had to throw out a little teaser.
Plans from here...Well, there is still a lot of editing, covers, audio books, promotions, and fun to be had with Scarlet in the future, but in the mean time I am brainstorming ideas for the next series.  No hints yet, but I promise I'm not just sitting around my office watching clips of Top Gear and playing video games.  I am most certainly very busy.
I hope this post finds you all well and daydreaming.  Keep reading.
