Honestly, I don’t know what to do with myself. I’m getting ever closer to making the Aunty Ida sequel available for pre-order, and I’m so excited. And nervous, if I’m being honest.
This will officially be my first series. And here’s the funniest part about it. When I wrote Aunty Ida’s Full-Service Mental Institution (by Invitation Only) I assumed it would be a standalone novel. A series? With that bunch of lunatic characters? How could it be?
And then Aunty Ida started nagging. And nagging. She popped up in short stories, which you can find in Better Living Through GRAVY and Other Oddities (you can pick it up for free, if you’re interested). But short stories weren’t enough for Ida. Nope.
She wanted another book. And more, I’m sure. She’s not the kind of character to let things go.
So I’m off into brand-new (for me) territory. Hopefully everyone who enjoys that funny, strange world will enjoy the sequel, I think it’s another weird, good time.
Oh, and I promised you the series title, and here I am nearly forgetting to put it into the post. So, once again, please get your imaginary drums ready. The series shall be named “An Aunty Ida Comedy Invention.”
Because it is all of those things.
So I have a few more tasks to cross off, and then before you know it, Aunty Ida will be showing off her new adventure. I can hardly wait.
Check out my full-length novels, Her Cousin Much Removed, The Great Paradox and the Innies and Outies of Time Management and Aunty Ida’s Full-Service Mental Institution (by Invitation Only).
