Vlogging about the Writing Life—Connecting Inn Significant & Little Milestones

After I published Inn Significant in 2017, I seriously considered a sequel. People were writing to me and asking me what happens to the characters. I began constructing the sequel and dabbled with about 13 chapters until I stopped writing it altogether. After I put it away for a while and took a break, a lightbulb went off in my head: what if I wrote a second book with a character with a somewhat parallel life and had them meet in the new novel? It would be more of a series rather than a sequel, and that appealed to me much more.

Typically, sequels aren’t very good. There are exceptions to the rule, of course. But on the whole, sequels typically let me down.

So, I wrote the book that follows more like a series and published Little Milestones in October.

I’m so happy I decided to go this route with Little Milestones. I loved Inn Significant so much and didn’t want to let myself down as the writer of that story OR my lovely readers, who deserve the best storytelling I can give them.

Below is the video I posted on Instagram about the two books. Let me know if I can answer any other questions, and if you live in the Maryland/Eastern Shore area, I’d love to see you at Skipjack’s on Sunday, November 24, in St. Michaels from noon – 2 p.m., where all the action of Little Milestones takes place.
