It has officially been way too long since I’ve done a blog post. I’m terrible at them if you can’t tell.
So, what have I been up to?
Well, writing. And lots of it. Kind of. (Hey, we’re all entitled to our off days!) I’m over the 50k mark in Here’s to Now, Gaige’s book. If this follows the length of my other novels, I have about 30k-ish more to write. However, now that Gaige is talking, he doesn’t want to shut up. I’m not saying this novel will go beyond my “normal” word count, but there’s a possibility.
Other than working on Gaige, I have penned (or typed, whatever) a few words here and there in an unannounced novella part of an unannounced novella series I’m doing with a ton of other authors. AND, I’ve been working a little on an untitled YA novel that’s outside of the type of happy books I write. It’s going to be more emotional than I’m used to and is going to touch on a rather tough, controversial issue, but I’m hoping it’ll be fantastic.
That’s about it going on in my little corner of the writing world. I’ve been busy updating things here and there on the site and have contemplated opening up a little store on Society6, but haven’t decided just yet. (Thoughts?) I have been reading some. I DEVOURED the Forbidden Men Series by Linda Kage. You NEED to read it. Now. It’s 8 books long and soooo good! I also read Up in the Treehouse by K.K. Allen (LOVED!), It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover (I can’t even express how I feel about this book), and I’m currently reading (and mostly enjoying) the YA Even When You Lie to Me by Jessica Alcott.
Oh! I’m attending my first signing this October in Boise, ID. If you’re going, PLEASE stop by and say hi. I’m super excited to meet some readers. Grab your tickets if you haven’t yet.
So, yeah, that’s all I have. Go follow my social media pages to keep up with my day-to-day life. I post random stuff, pretty pictures of coffee, and give out teasers for Here’s to Now.
