Shapeless has been out a few weeks now. I honestly have no idea how’s it doing, as I haven’t checked any reviews. I wonder how long it will be before I crack. 🙂 I know it’s not a Damned and Cursed novel, but hopefully it finds an audience. I tried a few twists in this novel. Brady and Lily are, by far, the most “broken” characters I’ve ever created.
This novel was oh-so-close to being a Damned and Cursed novel. I had two endings in mind, and told myself as I wrote that I’d let the ending “pick itself”. One ending would have tied it to the supernatural world. The other is what is in there now. When it finally came time, the world of Shapeless didn’t feel like a Damned and Curse setting. So it remained a standalone novel. I’m not sure if Brady’s skill-set of changing shape fits in with vampires, werewolves, etc.
But it’s fun to imagine. 🙂
Next up, another entry in the Damned and Cursed universe. The details for this one took a while to come to me, and I’m still a little hazy on some spots. But it is moving along, and sometime in early March I’ll have both the new cover online as well as a sample chapter.
