But I've also heard a lot of contemporary readers say they refuse to read historicals.
Which makes me wonder if instead of working on the prequel I should first work on a sequel, following Dillon's brother Griffin. I've got an idea of what I want to do with him; I've even written the first chapter. I have a strong idea of the external conflicts and the direction the story can go. (For Texas Tangle fans, yes, Dillon, Brett and Nikki will appear, as will Gramma Barnett, Dillon's parents Faith and Jackson who will all be embroiled in the fallout over D/B/Ns lifestyle decision.)

Mainly it's a matter of timing -- do I write the contemporary follow-up to Texas Tangle first, then the historical prequel? Or the historical prequel followed by a contemp sequel?
Which do you want to read?
