First, a shout out to Ava March for turning me on to a neat little feature on blogger where I can pre-schedule posts. I've made loads of use of that feature. I probably should have figured it out myself but well...I didn't. Now I have it.
Anyhow, some of you may have noticed I am rather flighty or wishy-washy as to what story I am going to write next. A couple of months ago I said I would work on another story (which shall remain incognito) by this time of the year, but well, it hasn't worked out that way. Other things come up in a writer's life and imagination and you have to be flexible.
My latest book, Pieces, as well as the next two releases, Twice in a a Lifetime, and The Beach House, are on the angstier sides. I think after the fun and light-heartedness of the Only Forever series, I went to some darker tales. Those of you who have read Pieces already know it had some angst to it. I think you will find similar angst in Twice in a Lifetime (it does NOT deal with suicide). I think The Beach House has some, but to a lesser degree than the other two.
Consequently, because I think both my readers and myself need a break after three in a row, I went to working on lighter, more fun stories.
The current works in progress are Accidentally His (the heroes meet because of a bus accident) and The Naughty Ones (a Christmas Elf story). I'm hoping to make both short and sweet (not no sex sweet of course).
After that, I have the deadline story, involving a Masquerade Ball, called
The Impersonator. It's due by December. When I initially said I would write a story for this themed story from Amber Quill, I had no clue what I would write, but since then I have come with the premise, title, and names. It will take place in Las Vegas. More information to come.
We'll see if I have any time for anything else for the rest of the year, which, I don't know if you all noticed, but it is nearly mid-August already. Yikes.
Anyhow, that leaves many, many stories to be written in 2011. Top of the list being Galaxy's Heart, which is book 3 in the Sutter Bay's series (Sweet Reunion, Twice in a Lifetime, Galaxy's Heart).
So that is the update for anyone wondering what the hell I am writing now and for the rest of the year and whether I have changed my mind yet again (which I have, of course).
