Newblood & the Ice Princess

I’ve been burning up a lot of brain cells figuring how I want to revise my first published novel, Sugar Rush.  I got the rights back to it, but not to the cover art.  That’s totally okay.  It wouldn’t work anyway.  Newblood & the Ice Princess is its new title and it will feel more Urban Fantasy than Paranormal in its new incarnation.

Sugar Rush had a sequel, Sweet Bytes, which was published by yet another ePublisher, which has since gone out of business.  I got my rights back to that one too.  The cover art was even more gorgeous, in my opinion, but I don’t have the rights to it and it would not work either.

See, I’ve come to realize that I want to follow a different path on the close of Sugar Rush.  The heroine, Ophelia, has an identical twin sister, Bianca, who famously throws a sewing machine out her window.  On the close of this novel, I’m more interested, at least right now, in what happens to Bianca who is a time traveler.  I love me some Time Travel, you know.  Probably thanks to Star Trek. 

So, I’ve decided to write a new ending to Sugar Rush to close it out more and set that fictional universe up to follow Bianca’s adventures next.  But, also, I want to end so I can pick up with Ophelia later on too.

This is what I get for having a visually cluttered, non-linear imagination.  But, at least, I’m not bored.  🙂

At this point, I’m in the middle of reformatting the novel.  The next step will be to make the revisions.  Being a visual thinker, I’m very excited about developing my own cover art for this story.  I’ve found the perfect images and I hope to share them with you soon.
