I've had a lot of great feedback over Christmas regarding book 4. It has only been out three weeks, and you lot are already after me for the next one!
I love your enthusiasm. It is totally contagious and I want to start writing Incursion: Merkiaari Wars 5 right away, but I have to finish Way of the Wolf first. I have to be fair to fans of the other series I write in, and they haven't had a book in ages. I'm writing chapter 20 now, and I project it will be a 30 chapter book so...
I managed to do two Merki Wars books in 2013. I will TRY to do the same this year in 2014, but no promises. I may do one Merkiaari Wars, one Merki Universe (the first one), and of course Way of the Wolf as well. I WILL try, but I have never been a fast or short novel writer. Book four was the longest yet at 451 pages in paperback, and some thought it too long, while others wanted more.
Anyway, thanks for all the great support and suggestions on my blog. I love you all for your ideas and enthusiasm for this series. I really enjoy writing them. I hope that comes across when you read them, because when I write I am TOTALLY there in the scene. I become Eric when you read him, and I am Gina when she worries about her men, and I am Kate when she mouths off to Stone LOL!
