This is a long and somewhat babbling blog, but I thought I would share some things with you!
I thought it was a good time to let you know what was going on with me. I haven’t been blogging that much because of work. I can only spend so many days in front of the computer, so I use them wisely so I don’t end up at the ER.
With the new year starting, I felt readers should know what I am thinking about in terms of books. I went through some changes last year, and while they were painful, they are definitely for the better. So, here it goes.
For the last few years, I felt as if I was chasing my tail. Last year, I reached a breaking point. I was at the ER an average of once every six weeks while I tried to keep up the same writing schedule. It was too much. So, after much thinking I rearranged things. I started writing more slowly and guess what? I started having FUN again. Didn’t matter what I was working on, but I started to enjoy it.
Then, came the other revelation. I was starting to plot whatever book would come after Seductive Reasoning and I realized that I didn’t want to write the book I was planning. Not at the moment. Oh, I had ideas about it, want to do it in the future, but right at the point, I wanted to do Hostile Desires. And now, I have Constant Craving speaking to me. So that is what I am going to work on.
I promise that the rest of Cursed Clan is coming and that I will have a Santini book soon. I want to offer readers my best work and to do that, I need to make sure it isn’t forced. It will also give me the time I need to spend with my family and close friends. While I have always tried to make sure to fit people into my life, when I started having health issues, my time with them ended up being the sick times. You know, those times when I was too ill to even think of writing. That is not fair to them or me.
How will this go down? Well, when I finish the book and have it ready for final proofing edit, I will put it on preorder. There will be 6-8 weeks total of preorders and plenty of time for readers to hear about it. This way, no rushing and all my best work:)
I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season!
