Yes, it's that time again that I give my site a writing update. I suck at blog posts. If there's anything in particular you'd like to see me cover on here, comment below. I'd be interested in lots of ideas that won't bore you poor people to death. That is never my intention.
As for writing...
I'm constantly getting hit up with questions about next books. When's Somewhere coming out? When are we getting Big's book? How about Gunz? Bonez? etc... etc... It's flattering as hell that everyone is so excited to get more more more. But, I don't want people to HAVE to message me for updates. So I'm giving them on here. Hopefully this will help with my writing shenanigans. Lord knows I am quite the pantser aka what comes and not what is required of me. I tend to think this is what gives you better books to read than ones that are forced out for the sake of getting shit done. Not all characters speak up at all times. Thus frustrating readers and giving me a steady stream of voices in my head. I promise I'm not possessed or anything. It's an author thing. At least, I hope so. Who knows? I don't have many close author friends...
Here's my update.
The H.O.P.E trilogy is published! It should've been done sooner... I can say that about a whole lotta things. My laundry should be done now too... but there it sits, for a week, clean in the laundry basket while a whole new pile accumulates, mostly of pj pants, shirts, and the occasional pair of undies. Have I mentioned I flove my job? No? Well, I do... Pajamas all day... Need I say more?
As I was finally getting to.
Somewhere... the long awaited final of Gwen's story will come when... well...whenever she tells me to get my ass in gear and write it. Until then, I'm not gonna fight words that won't come.
Big will be one of the final books I ever write when it comes to the Sacred Sinners. I want the series to go out with a BANG. Not a plop. How else could I go out with a 'boom' if not with Big Dick's book? Seems logical to me. Plus, his club brothers have a lot of growing to do, as does he, before I feel like giving him a full on story. That doesn't mean he won't have plenty of cameos' though. As my characters often do. I prefer it that way.
On to Gunz. Believe it or not I've had his cover image picked and ready to rock and roll for the better part of two years. It's a model photo. One that suits the plot. However, I still haven't pinned down all of his story yet, so I don't feel comfortable throwing caution to the wind without my gut telling me it's just right. That I'm doing him justice. He's important to me. Thus making it harder to write because of the pressure. His book has gotta rock.
As for Bonez... Oohhh my beloved Bonez... If you're a crazy loyal Bink Cummings fan... like I am.. because, well, I'm Bink Cummings... duh... Then you'll know that I tend to use good ole Bonez in all sorts of books. He's a cameo whore of sorts. Not that he shouldn't be. He's yummy. Smuggles a baseball bat in his pants, and has mouth watering muscles to go with all those tattoos. I'm a bit obsessed with him, mostly because he doesn't give me a headlike like Big or Ryker does. He's a good guy. A kinky, hot, sweet, fun loving, man who anyone and everyone should wanna bone. At least IMO.
That's enough about future books. Trust me, if you follow my instagram and facebook you'll get plenty of updates as they come along.
As for the books I am currently writing... there are four. Yes. Four. Crazy huh? Two of them I'm semi writing, meaning here and there. There's one I'm adding to every few days. And another that will be be a novella and published in a few months. That's the one I'm closer to being finished with. I already have my editing and proofreading set up for that so I gotta kick my ass in gear and get that puppy done. Believe it or not, the book idea stemmed from Deb's suggestion. One day she was over, we were talking unique book ideas, then all of a sudden it was as if a bomb exploded in my brain. It's not anything like I've written before. Nothing at all. It's not like anything I've read before either. And I'm pretty darn sure most of you will agree if you read it. All I can say right now is that the book is HOT. Way hot. One hand in the pants, hot. At least I think so. But it's a romance, too. It was time for me to explore the kinkster side of myself again before writing the next very emotional story that'll likely have me in tears.
What else should I say?
I don't have much.
It's kinda boring here. The weather has been hella crappy. Too much rain. Too much cold. It's spring for cryin out loud. Where's the heat? I want to read on my porch again. Wear tank tops outside. No more winter coats... That would be nice.
Hope everyone is having a good week.
That you haven't fallen asleep reading my jibber jabber yet...
And are loving Hopelessly Devoted if you've gotten a chance to read it yet.
P.S. Thank you all so much for your beautiful reviews. They mean the world to me. Not much longer and Hopelessly Shattered will have 300 of them! Talk about insane and way exciting! Didn't know if that'd ever happen!
P.S.S. Sorry if this blog post isn't 'clean'... meaning has errors or whatnot. I didn't spend a ton of time proofreading it.
