Let me just start this by saying I’m SO sorry for not getting back to everyone in a timely manner. I’ve gotten way behind on web comments, in particular, and am a solid month to month & a half behind on e-mails from all of you. I truly appreciate all of you reaching out to me and interacting with me. I love it, and I promise to respond to each and every one of you, just as soon as I feel I have a grip on book 4.
Which brings me to book 4. I’ve been focusing a lot on this next excerpt in Lexi’s journey lately. I’m trying to recall things that I lost, and find that I do that best when I have no other distractions. So I’ve been locking myself in my closet (which happens to be my office… fancy, I know) and shutting the world out so I can crank this out. I’m happy with the progress I’ve made, but feel so disorganized with it. I have clips and pieces of scenes and full scenes and random lines typed up and written all over the place, but it’s taken a bit longer to actually connect them all together. So, that is what I’m focusing on today: weaving more of my pieces together.
Intermittently, when I need a break from writing book 4 (too much chaos can be overwhelming), I’ve been working on my next plus size adult book, which is going south to the Caribbean for some hot Latin love. I haven’t decided the final length for this book yet, but at 14k in, I’m guestimating it will be about 45-50k.
There is a lot going on my head right now surrounding both story lines, but my priority is Vamp Versus Vamp, so that one will be released first. Given that I have so many pieces still floating about, I don’t want to throw out a timeline yet, but promise that as soon as I write that last line and send it over to my fabulous editor, Susie, I will give you all a solid release date.
Thanks for all of your patience, and especially for your continuing support as I work through all of the snafus. I truly appreciate each and every one of you for sticking with me.
I’m including another sneak peek from book 4 for you below. Enjoy!
We stopped just short of the opening. Auggy turned to Al. “I’m sorry, but you can’t come with us. You need to stay behind.”
“He’s my son! I’ll be damned if I’m staying behind.” I’d never seen Al’s features scrunch so tightly on his face.
“Lower your voice, dear.” Beth seemed sallow, peering at the forest floor. She was caught in the middle. She knew no vampire could safely set foot inside; even vampeens weren’t safe. “We’re trusting you with our son’s life,” she stated, lifting her face to Auggy.
“You have our word.” Auggy nodded as Aunt Claire came to stand beside him.
