Well, Book 2 is well under way now, and have reached a decision regarding the length of the series... that I'll be reducing it from 5 books to 3.

Bit of a drop, you might say, but I think the overall plot will work better - and most importantly, may read better, split over 3 books overall. The only thing is that books 2 and 3 will consequently be a leetle more voluminous than book 1. (Those who know me well will know what a "leetle more" is likely to involve...!)

I've got to the stage in Book 2 where the decision needs to be made before I can seriously progress any further, and following a brief but rather interesting conversation with someone in the publishing world a couple of weeks ago, my decision has been made.

Of course, there's always a proviso, and if a certain prospective publisher reading this would prefer 5 books to 3 after all, then please note my decision is not legal and binding.

  1. Rachel originally planned on five volumes, but has also reduced it to three. The first is published and available from Amazon as a paperback, or in electronic format. You can read a few chapters "for free", it's called "Rebellion", by Rachel Cotterill. Your daughter might like it!

  2. thanks for this Christine, it's good to know I'm in such good company - I'll check out Rachel's book, thanks for the pointer!
