No warning, sorry this does not contain spoilers!
Yesterday marked the release of A Lunatic’s Guide’s first sequel: A Demigoddess’s Guide to Interplanetary Parenting and I flipped between excited, terrified and curious. With the favourable feedback from A Lunatic’s Guide I went into the sequel fuelled by determination not to be a one hit wonder and benefits from the first to flow into the second. I had solid characters, a great basic story line and a million directions I could go in.
Yet, after the first couple of drafts I felt something lacking. The only bigger and better thing it formed into was a pile of poop. I went back to the drawing board, stripped it back to basics and redefined the plot for A Demigoddess. I watched a number of movie sequels to see how they dealt with each instalment, re-read A Lunatic’s Guide a few times, wrote, thought, plotted and planned. When it all soaked in and came together the pathway cleared.
After the first round edits I did a bit of tweaking and viola, Shayne and Annu’s new adventure pushes them further than they’d imagined possible. Even more sarcasm and dark humour! I’m working on book three and four, the titles of which I’ll keep to myself for the time being.
Until then settle in and jump into the next wormhole:
