Blurty is about to have a final edit (squeeeeeeee)! But having given it to a fellow writer for a writerly look-over may have led to an unexpected consequence…
You see my reader (you know who you are) thought this was part of a series and was VERY disappointed when I said “no, it’s a stand alone”. I’d never envisaged those characters having another story – in fact, I felt that Blurt was their story.
Then… I was sitting around one lunch time at work, doodling things in my notebook when I got curious about what a further story could be and BAM! I had an idea. A good idea.
Just to check it was a good idea I ran it past my reader and she agreed! So… well… Blurty might have a ‘sister’ down the track somewhere. My first attempt at a sequel.
I know there’s at least one reader in the world who’ll want to get their hands on it!
