Got a message from a reader asking me what’s next now that The Shattered Isles trilogy is finished. Good question, and I have given it a little thought to conclude that I don’t know. I am not sure if it is stress from the whole Covid-19 thing or something else, but I don’t have any ideas right now for more TG Kadee books.
When I started Brother Bewitched, my intention was to create a YA novel that had TG themes. That idea held true for the first book, though the YA idea faded more and more as I wrote the second and third books. I think the YA notion vanished for a couple reasons. The first was that I felt like my readers were, for the most part, not YA readers. Secondly, my own commitment to the YA idea faded as I just wanted to write the story without feeling constricted by a certain genre.
For now, I don’t think I have anything more to say as TG Kadee. I just don’t have a single idea that isn’t just rehashing what I’ve already done. We’ll see. I have felt “done” before and gotten inspired, so hopefully that will happen. The one idea I do have is to try again at a YA novel, but this time to hide the gender bending a little. We’ll see. We’ll see. We’ll see.
