I'm pounding through chapter two of Knights of Amathar right now, but I'm already thinking about what should be next on my book list. I have several ideas, and while one might be more appealing to me right now, I'll probably change my mind by the time I finish my current project. Here are my current ideas:
A novel that takes place between the second and third books of The Steel Dragon, turning the trilogy into a... series with four books in it.
A novel that does the same thing, only takes place after The Two Dragons (making the new book the fourth book in the series. I would have to remove the epilog at the end of the two dragons that tells what happens to all the characters for the rest of their lives.
A novel that takes place in the world of The Steel Dragon, but with all new characters-- a family that is split up and travels around the world.
A novel about a shipwrecked sailor (Yes, I just read Robinson Crusoe) taking place in the world of The Steel Dragon.
Enough Steel Dragon for you?
A science fiction novel about a merchant starship captain-- romance/adventure.
A sci-fi conspiracy comedy-- can't say anything more than that at the moment.
A story about archaologists in the far future opening a time capsule from the twentieth century.
A fantasy story about people from different eras of earth brought to a magical realm.
A swords & sorcery novel about a warrior and a bard and a queen.
A sci-fi horror story about a starship crew who finds unspeakable horror on a dead world.
A story about children who can cross dimensions.
Well, there you go. When I get to the end of my current work, I'll let you know which if any of these I decide to work on next.
