Ahhhhhhhhhh as I’ve said before, my mind is a wild, crazy, weird and unpredictable place. I imagine it to be a little like Mordor, Tatooine and Panem combined. Foreign, alien and primed for a revolution.
Oh. But I meditate, so that balances it out.
I’ve scrapped Girl Harbor. At least for now. 50,000 words in, and I realized – now is not the time for me to write that book.
Back to the drawing board, and I plotted a new romance about a wounded, ex-Marine and an emotionally wounded heroine. It incorporates military, small towns, second chances, healing, cowboys and …. apples. What? Yes, you heard me. Apples.
Now when I first released The Island, the one thing I kept hearing over and over was, please expand on Gabe and Michael. Immediately my mind went to Michael. He’s my BABY. Someday, I will go in depth on how that story evolved…but Michael was and will always be my baby. Naturally, I wanted to tell his story first. The entire thing is outlined and the first three chapters are written and I planned on finishing it in early 2018.
Then I meditated and Gabe’s story came crashing through. How he and Michael met. How their lives were shaped and how they became so intertwined together with each other the way they are.
So now, I have two manuscripts going and I couldn’t be more excited about the things that are coming ♥
