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.
