I am considering dividing the story I thought could be contained by a single novel, Cherry Bomb over two novels. I'm two thirds through the latter, and it's becoming obvious it's a much bigger story. If I do this, if my publisher is agreeable, it would add a fourth Siobhan Quinn novel, Ruby Red. It would have to be written after Dinosaurs of Mars, The Good, The Bad, and the Bird (the next Dancy series), and at least the first half of Beneath the Wide Carnivorous Sky.

I have a phone conference with my editor at Penguin on Monday to discuss this, and I should be able to tell you more Monday evening or Tuesday.

Contemplating,
Aunt Beast

Best of luck with the conference. I look forward to hearing about the results either way.

So, is The Good, the Bad and the Bird set in stone as the official title?

Yes, it is.

How exciting! I'm always eager to read whatever you write, so will happily devour as many Quinn novels as you give us.

If that is what you want and writing it won't be too taxing, my fingers are crossed they agree.

It will undoubtedly be too taxing. But everything is...

I can't help but think of how hard it can be to tell stories as they're meant to be told. So I hope this goes the way that it should.

I'm always in favor of more Quinn if you care to write it!
