I'm posting a lot today, it seems. :D

Anyway, I just wanted to post some thoughts about my first book. It seems to want to make itself into a series, which I'm fine with.

I haven't written much, but I am about 6,000 words into the sequel to Phoenix. There isn't a name for it yet, but it's working title is Phoenix: The Revenge.

Plotwise, the story takes up where the first one left off. Abby is going to work with Michael and the team, gathering evidence against Raphael Martinez to start with. But he's not the only one they're dealing with. The mafia in this story has become a corporation, using modern technology and more sophisticated methods of organising crime.

So, Abby's job will not only be collating the evidence against Raphael, but also helping the agency, as well as her own team, to put a dent in organised crime in NZ.

Sound good so far?

Well, of course, New York, which controls the 'corporation' Raphael was running, doesn't like where this is going and want to send someone to 'take care of it'.

That's where a character from the first novel comes in. I won't say who, but let's just say that he has developed an unhealthy obsession with Abby. Then he finds out that Abby and Michael are together and turns his sights on Michael.

Phoenix returns in order to take him down and stop Michael from becoming another victim in their fight against organised crime.

Anyway, I have a few ideas how this is going to happen. When I was writing the first book, I would get several scenes in my head and wrote them down, figuring out where they would fit in later. As strange as this method sounds, it did help me write about half of the book, even if I did procrastinate for years. So I've decided to just go with the flow with this one, follow the same method and fit the scenes in later.

For instance, I've just written nearly 800 words on a scene which will come at the very end of the book. I won't go into detail about the scene except to say that the preceding events destroy the relationship and by the end of the story, Abby and Michael break up.

What the next book will centre on, I don't know, but I'm kind of excited to find out.
