Wow! That’s all I can say. I was overwhelmed (in a good way) by all of the responses I received to the survey. Thank you all so much to everyone that responded. You have asked me enough questions to cover several months, and perhaps even years worth of blog posts.
So this brings me to our next question: How often would you like to have me blog some answers to all of these questions? I was thinking after the initial top three, I would do three more every two weeks and also keep you up to date on my latest writing and what’s happening in regards to which series.
I’d like to share some of the data from the survey with you if you’re interested. I’ll include a screengrab of the results to the question, ‘What are your favourite kinds of stories?’
As you can see, ‘Mysterious Happenings’ are the #1 response with ‘Cryptids’ and ‘Ghosts/hauntings’ pulling a close second place. This has been very informative and will help guide my future writing efforts.
Doesn’t a novel with mysterious happenings, cryptids and a haunted place sound exciting? If it wasn’t for the lack of cryptids, I’d say my latest series, ABANDONED checks off quite a few of those boxes. In fact, my next novel in the Lively Deadmarsh series which I am planning as a standalone piece of about 400 pages long, will involve another mysterious happening (they really are the best), and an unknown cryptid-like creature. This novel will be called BESIEGED and will begin production after I release the third novel in the CLAW series next year, and the three-part prequel series called CLAW Emergence, on which I have already written a couple of novellas.
Well, I don’t want to chat your ear off here. So I will end this now. I will be releasing the cover of ABANDONED: Chaos and Corruption this weekend. The novel is coming along well and should be in your hands in less than two weeks. And speaking of the ABANDONED series, I have a brand new book trailer for those of you interested.
In the meantime, for those of you who haven’t had a chance to read ABANDONED Books 1&2, here is your chance. Starting today, I am having a Black Friday Weekend Sale and both books are on sale for only .99 cents! If you love a good, spooky, inexplicable (so far) mystery, you should check these books out. And for .99 cents, there couldn’t be a better time than now!
I am also experimenting with the Berry Blogs being emailed to all of my subscribers, so I don’t have to do a separate email blast. This is my first attempt at doing so, so I hope it turns out. If there are hiccups, please bear with me.
There will, of course, still be special offers emailed separately, not available to the general public. This will include things such as a request for review team readers who will receive a copy of ABANDONED 3: Chaos & Corruption absolutely free, with the only stipulation that you leave an honest review (Application form coming in the next Berry Blog).
So stay tuned for another burst of info coming very soon (as in this weekend). In it, I will answer three questions about my writing. And I have to say at this point, you have asked some good ones (I hope my answers can live up to your questions). This isn’t to say you can’t contact me directly if you want with any questions, as usual, at firstname.lastname@example.org. I always love to hear from my readers so don’t be shy.

Happy Thanksgiving once again to my American friends! I hope everyone has a great weekend and I will talk to you all very soon.
