Back to Work

I've been jotting down ideas for the next book (Book #4 of my Masters at Arms series, Gavin's story) now and then over the last couple of weeks.  The basic story premise was set in my mind, but I couldn't quite decide on the dramatic events that would move the story forward.  Yesterday, I sat down at my computer in a fairly casual attempt to brainstorm ideas--and suddenly the whole story jelled into a series of seven or eight events and character interactions.  I captured them, put them into synopsis form, and the proposal is now almost written.  What fun, when this happens!  Picture me doing a Snoopy dance.  This proposal isn't due on my editor's desk until August 1, so I'm well ahead of schedule.  Since it's getting really hot here now in Louisiana--soon will be July when it's time to stay inside where it's cool--I'll probably go ahead and start the book, see how much I can get done before our annual August escape to the mountains.  Can you tell I'm excited about this story?

I have not read this series yet as I am currently reading the book Clay. I have read Kane, Luke, and Roan all in the past two weeks. I know that there is Adam and Wade still left in the series. My question is...are you planning on writing any more in this series, have you written others already, or do you consider it complete?

Thanks so much for reading my Louisiana Gentlemen stories. I should tell you that Adam's story, in case you don't know, was written as a novella published in a collection titled "With a Southern Touch"--he doesn't have his own book. "Wade" is the last book of the series. For now, the series is complete, since I have three more books under contract on my historical series, for a total of six. However, I never say never. And I *do* have a new Louisiana gentleman book outlined in a computer file...just an idea that came along...
