It's only because I love you

Love makes us do wacky things.

Like avoid the blog and the readers I cherish -

You see, I'm writing a novel - my second novel, which releases in 2010. I'm at the tippy-tippy end, finishing up this story - and it's because I love you all so much that I'm neglecting you in order to finish the new novel which I hope you'll love.

Isn't love funny?

Know what's worse? I can't talk about the new novel for a few weeks until we get some details hammered out - like a title (titling is fun work, but it can be time consuming to get that perfect title. Lots of brainstorming with smart people).

Here is what I can tell you - it isn't a sequel to Talking to the Dead. Many of you have asked if there will be a sequel. The answer is: not so far. I've mapped out ideas on the next several books I'd like to work on, and a sequel to Talking isn't among them. But I've learned long ago to never say never. So I won't.

Some other bits I can share with you about the new book: It has alternating POV between two main characters - a man and a woman. Do you smell a love story? Hmm... hard to say. What is love, anyway?

The story is different from Talking to the Dead - but the emotional landscape is as rich and poignant. We'll cover some deep ground together in the new book - an experience I hope you will find meaningful, entertaining, thought provoking, and above all - a good read.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!

I bid you good writing.
