Reasons, Rumors and Writing Four Books (or more) At Once

I know you're wondering why our female heroines are experiencing so much trouble with their love lives. I've been lambasted (roasted and/or barbecued) over it in several reviews of Demon's King. But--what if, you ask yourself, there is a reason for all this?
Well, is there?
Since I'm the one writing the books, I can say yes to that question without hesitation. Here is a quote from Blood Love, the tentative title in the fourth book of the God Wars series. This is Lissa and Gavin talking. I started to give a larger quote, but it contained a name and other information I'm not quite ready to give, yet. Here it is:

"Gavin, what do you think would hold the universes together, if Love didn't exist?"
Gavin's eyes popped open and he stared at me. "Lissa, that is the most frightening thing I've heard in a very long time."

So, ask yourself, who might gain if Love is destroyed—especially for some of the major players? What better way to turn them away from their destiny than to damage/remove that vital commodity? Things are heating up in the God Wars realm, and the BIG players have to come together. As far as Reah's personal troubles, I'm hoping that Demon's Quest will help somewhat, but as there are six books in the High Demon series, obviously the problems haven't gone away completely.
Now, on to rumors. Yes, there has been conjecture that Reah or Lissa is the Mighty Heart. After all, nobody has gotten a good look at her. At least you know it's a her, now <grin>. Well, I'm sorry to burst any bubbles, but the Mighty Heart is neither Lissa nor Reah. And still, Wisdom is lurking out there, somewhere <bigger grin>.
And, since I just gave you a quote from Blood Love, the fourth book in the God Wars series, then you've probably figured out that I have something written on all four books (I do). Blood Double is half finished. Blood Trouble has the least written on it (around 8,000 words) Blood Resolution is close to half finished, as is Blood Love. Yeah, my mind works in truly strange (if not mysterious) ways.
Anyway, I hope this helps a little. Happy New Year, everybody, and may its light shine on all of us.
