Let me start out by saying earlier in January I was stricken with a monster bug that kept me missing in action on the internets for a good chunk of January. I was diagnosed with bronchitis, but I'm pretty sure I had the flu on top of it. I can't come up with any other logical reason as to why I felt like I was at death's doorstep for over two weeks. I couldn't move or focus or eat or do anything really. So, I got zero writing done during this time. Sad face.
I'm working on three--yes, you read that right--three stories at the moment! My main focus is on Remy's origin story. I'd originally wanted to release it this month, but with being sick, I'm not sure that will happen. I'm still shooting for that though, so we'll see. Right now, it's going to be a novella that will be priced at 99 cents. That could change as I get into the meat of the story, so stay tuned for updates.
Project number two is Take Me On, a rock star romance I've been working on for two years. The same one you've probably heard me mention a billion times over the past year. I have my ass on fire to get this one done, and I am determined to get it out sooner rather than later. I can't even begin to explain how much this one means to me. It was the first thing I ever started writing with the goal of releasing it to the public. I started writing it in February of 2013, and I feel like kicking my own ass for not finishing it already. So far, it's over 60,000 words and is only about half to 3/4 of the way finished. This will be the longest story I've written to date.
Project number three is--drum roll, please--book #4 of The Willow Creek Vampires Series! There you go. It's official. I am continuing the series. I don't know how many more books there will be, but there will be at least one more. It's in the planning stage at this point, and I've only written a few pages, but I am hoping to get it out this summer. No official date has been set. It has no title and no cover, but it does have an outline. That's something, right?
My very first signing ever is coming up fast! If you're in the Myrtle Beach area or within driving distance on March 14, come out and see me! I'd love to meet you. I'm so flippin' excited about this one. Not only is it my first signing, but a very dear friend of mine is accompanying me as my assistant, and I just know it's going to be something I will never forget.
Speaking of dear friends, I will be featuring an interview in the coming days with an awesome author who I think truly deserves to be given the spotlight. Her stories are easy to get lost in and she has a way with words that make you feel as if you're right there in the scene. I'll have that feature up sometime this weekend, so be sure to check back to see just who I'm talking about. ;)
And last but not least, I just want to say thank you to all of you readers out there who have taken a chance on me and The Willow Creek Vampires Series! When I first hit publish for Craving, I never expected anyone to ever read it. So you can imagine my surprise when people who aren't related to me actually did read it and, not only that, they actually liked it. It means the world to me, and I appreciate you more than you can ever know. It's so easy at times to just say, "Fuck it," and want to throw in the towel, but then I get a message from someone telling me they've fallen in love with my characters and I realize quitting is the last thing I'd ever want to do. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Until next time...
