Okay, so as part of the Possession series, there are two short stories, RESIST (free here) and REGRET (only 99 cents here). I had never written short stories before these, and I found them to be relaxing and fun. Not only that, but they give unique perspectives of some important secondary characters in the series.
I’ve wanted to write a third short story for about a year. I want to use Starr Messenger as the narrator, because she’s so fascinating to me—and she gets hardly any page time in Surrender.
I know she’s been working against the government for a long time, and I think she definitely has a story that could fill in some gaps between Surrender and ABANDON, as well as round out the story that happens in the third book. An extension, if you will.
Starr is a key player in a lot of ways, running things inside Freedom while Jag and Zenn take care of business beyond the wall. She’s in everyone’s pocket, and she has the ability to get information no one else can. One of the major things she does in ABANDON is fly to the city of Baybridge to take care of Resistance business there. Neither Jag nor Zenn knows what she’s doing there, and I’ve always wanted to write that story.
I think it could be full of danger and intrigue, and provide another point-of-view to how individuals beyond Jag Barque have been able to influence the revolution toward freedom.
The problem is, I’ve never found any time to write it. And now that ABANDON is out, I’m afraid I never will. Stranger things have been known to happen, but yeah.
