Mini-Musing –This is a Scary Business

So I’m cleaning my office today, despite being on stay-cation.  Trust me, it’s messy and needs it.  Now last time I did this I mentioned on Facebook that I came across some books I don’t recall purchasing and/or reading.  I guess it happens when you have almost 400 books in your office alone and keep buying more every month or so.

Some of the books, I took the time to look up the authors to learn more about them and to see if they had more works.  Some did of course but many didn’t.  In fact a few of them seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth – or at least off of the internet.  It just makes you wonder what happened.  Did life make it impossible from them to continue?  Did the publishers cancel their contracts for whatever reason?  Did they decide writing wasn’t for them or only wanted to do one or two books?  Did they pass away?  

For example here are some of the books I have been looking over and whether or not they have a sequel.

Diana Marcellas – Mother Ocean, Daughter Sea.  There seems to be one sequel and a few other books and some reprints by another publisher.  The last being 2014.  There’s no website or blog for her.  I did find a posting on Goodreads from her ex- who gives some additional info and provides pen names, but there’ still nothing recent.

S.D. Tower – The Assassins of Tamurin.  I really liked this book if I recall.  But she’s not written anything since, looks like or at least I’m not finding anything.

Devin Cary – The Winter Queen.  This is another book I liked reading and again nothing online except re-sale copies.

Drew Bowling – The Tower of Shadows.  I haven’t read this yet and I want to but it’s Book 1 and there’s no indication of a Book 2.

Caiseal Mor – The Meeting of the Waters.  It looks like the author is concentrating on music which is cool of course but this has one sequel and that was in 2010.

This is just a sampling.  I hope all of the authors are planning to return to this hectic thing that we all love called writing, because I’d love to see the continuation of their stories.  In the meantime, I’m going to try and find as many new authors that I can and discover new works.  And of course, purchase more bookshelves.

Peace~

About authorcjblack

I'm a multi-published author of fantasy, erotic and paranormal fiction. The first two books of my series, Illusion of Night and Memory in Shadow are currently available from Liquid Silver Books as well as a recently published novella, Soul Fires. I'm currently seeking an agent who loves heroic fantasy as much as I do, to rep my work, Tinderbox. I’ve been an author for almost thirty years and got my start on an old typewriter at the age of five and wrote my first novel at fourteen. Probably the world’s biggest bibliophile I own three-hundred plus books and counting. My hobbies include working in my garden, cooking and I’m possibly the world’s oldest Girl Gamer. I encourage readers and authors to contact me to discuss the business anytime.
