I've been lucky enough to attend three different author signing events this year, and my Willow Creek Vamps always seem to do very well. However, I've had a ton of readers at each event ask me if they're appropriate for a younger audience. If you've read them, you know they're not, but it got me to thinking about an audience of readers who either aren't allowed to read adult books or who just prefer young adult. I think Craving, Haunting, and Awakening are really good stories (yeah I'll toot my own horn, but I can honestly say I do read them on the regular because I love them that much), and I'd like to get them into the hands of as many readers as possible.
I have decided to release a young adult version of The Willow Creek Vampires Series. I don't know when it'll happen as it won't be my main project, and I doubt it'll happen before next year. I'll be working on it when I get burnt out on whatever my main work in progress is. The original versions with all the eff bombs and steamy sex will still be available as well. I wouldn't yank them in favor of changing them to a different genre. I just want to make the story as a whole available to more people.
Here's a little Take Me Home update while I'm at it. I am working hard to get it released next month. If everything works as planned, I should be announcing a date soon. I've had a minor set back with being so sick at the moment, but I still managed to crank out 1,400 words last night in a really important scene that I'd been having trouble with. You see? I feel like death warmed over, but TMH is still my priority at the moment. lol :) I'm getting very close to final editing/revisions (I do a lot of this as I write), so it shouldn't be much longer before I'll make that release date announcement and reveal the cover.
As always, thanks so much to everyone who has read my books or helped to spread the word about them. It means more to me than you'll ever know! <3
