....I am horrible at blogging.
I always have been. I cannot tell you the number of times I have created a new blog for something (books, life, motherhood...) and I have a good couple of weeks and then I drop like a fly.
I know I shouldn't be neglecting this one. But I have. And I'm sorry.
So - let's give a few updates, shall we?
Choose Us is still hanging onto some of those best sellers charts. Which is crazy and insane and something I would never have dreamed would be happening (or ever happen). But especially not with it being almost 5 months out now. Not to mention the 132 reviews on Amazon. Or the 171 reviews on Goodreads... Or heck, just the 1,462 ratings on Goodreads. That means I know 1,462 people have read my book. Crazy!
So now that I have this pretty successful book under my belt - what do I do next? What do I do to try and top that? Is that even a possibility?!
I've been pounding away on my keyboard for months now, trying to tell the story of Haley and Eli. I adore these two. They are fun and sweet and just amazing. However, they have been pretty hard to work with for a while. Refusing to talk to me, refusing to tell me their story. Refusing to let me write in Parting Chances! So frustrating.
(and yes, I do talk about them like that. It's how it works...)
But guess what!! They have been talking lately and my word count has been going up and I'm finishing chapter after chapter and it's fantastic. Which means, I'm probably, hopefully, most likely going to hit my deadline to send it to my first round betas in September. Hoping for a quick turnaround since I have an editor set up for October... and another beta read... and out to you guys in mid-November!
Yes! I said it. Parting Chances will be out in mid-November!!!
And my cover artist is working away on the cover right now. I have not seen anything yet, but have been refreshing my e-mail like crazy these last few days, just waiting for it! I'm excited for it. I can't wait to see it, since I know it'll be amazing. And I can't wait to show YOU it!
...I'm sure I'll be setting up a cover reveal, so you'll probably have to wait a little bit, but it'll be worth it. Promise!
Aside from Parting Chances, I've also been working on two co-author projects. Both are Paranormal Romances, which is a step out of my comfort zone... you know, the whole paranormal thing. I can do romance all day, every day. But paranormal is a bit more tricky. I adore both projects - they are so different from one another and I'm really excited for you to read them... but it won't be until at least next year. So, I'll just sit here and tease you for the next few months! Hehe.
Okay - that's my update. I think that's all. I've rambled enough for today. I'll try to keep this updated more often. Guess I need to figure out things to talk about.
For now, I must get back to Parting Chances and finish a few chapters!
