Red Sands Investigations has been out and complete for a few months now and I have been thinking about a possible two-part sequel.
I do have a sketchy plot outline and a couple of new characters, although much of it will centre on the old characters, readjusting to a slightly different town now that different people are vying to run things.
It's still very much at a pre-pitch stage, but if I can get it into a story that definitely seems worth telling, then I'll pitch it and see what happens. The original Red Sands is complete in its own way, so I don't want to try to do anything to it if that doesn't actually add anything to the original. So yes, this is all very tentative at the moment.
So far the sequel involves donkeys, puppets and blackmail, which feels like a fun combination to start with at any rate..
Anyhow, from this moment I'm actively working on it, so hopefully it'll be plotted out in the next couple of weeks and I'll see from there if it's pitchable. Here's hoping so.
