Postcards from Liminal Space—I am trying to open up some new ideas, not just for my writing, but for my vision of the future. So in this first month of a new year, I am trying to be open to subtle nudges from my intuition, to dreams and memories, and to nature as it prepares for rebirth. There have been times in my life when I felt so clearly that I was standing in-between what was and what would be, but I couldn’t see far enough to know what was going to happen, only that something was about to. I have that sense now. I think it’s a good thing, but any time your routine gets knocked topsy turvey there is an in-betweenness that is awkward.
I’m just finishing up The Dread, which is either book 6 in the Chronicles series or Book Two in the Fallen Kings Cycle, depending on which reader or publisher you talk to. I’m going to take a bit of a break from the world of the Winter Kingdoms and Tris and the gang after this book, so finishing it makes me a little sad. I have many other Winter Kingdoms stories in mind that I hope to write, but I’ve got a brand new series that I’m excited to write, and so that’s going to consume the next few books. It’s definitely luminal space for me—one thing drawing to a hiatus while something else opens up.
