And so it begins - Book 3

Actually, both book three and four in the Stone Society series are underway.  Dante's story is coming along nicely, if it has taken a twist from my original plan early on.  These characters have a way of writing their own stories, and I'm just along for the ride.

Frey is adamant that his story be told next. It happens at the same time books 2 and 3 happen and it is basically written in my head.  I just need to put it to paper.

5k words written yesterday is a great start...

Book Titles

One of the most important things in writing a book is coming up with a good title.  In trying to be clever with my Sweet Things series, I titled the first book Double Stuffed Eclairs. The meaning was clear when I started the book. By the time I finished writing and re-writing the story, the title had lost its meaning.  When a main character shuts down your ending, adds extra characters, and has her own idea of the ending, you have to go with the flow. I should have realized then that the title wasn't going to work.  I did not.  So now, after months of lamenting over the "wrong" title, I have decided to change it.

In keeping with the hearts theme from the Candy Hearts novella, I am going with Troubled Hearts. This new title will bring about a new cover as well. This change will help with the next book in the series, tentatively titled Mending Hearts. I already have the cover picked out for it (that is if the characters allow me to continue the story as I have it planned out).  I hope the new title and cover will be out soon.  I am in love with both and I want everyone to join in my happiness.

Gregor on Goodreads

Gregor is now on goodreads if you would like to add him to your TBR list.  It's amazing how much more traction the reviews get there as opposed to Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

I can't believe he'll be hitting the "shelves" in 22 days.

Covers!

I just had the privilege of seeing the cover for our Poetry anthology.  I love it.  Love being the key word here.  I am also stoked about showing the Gregor cover this Saturday with the ladies from TaSTy WordGasms Blog.  A lot of hard work goes into creating a cover and both of these covers are awesome.  I cannot wait to share them with you.

who knew?

Who knew that badass alpha Gargoyle shifters had such a soft side? Gregor was inspired to write a poem for Tessa.  Look for it at the end of the book...

when the words come

It is amazing at how the stories come about. I really try to piece together a timeline for my books. I know the beginning and ending, most of the in-betweens, and how I see the characters acting. While I was doing something totally unrelated to the next story in the series, the characters started talking to me. Of course, I stopped what I was doing an wrote down what they wanted me to write.  I can tell that Dante is going to be totally different than I originally thought.  Sneaky that one. So yes, Dante has officially started.

writing poems

I love writing poems.  Today, poetry has become more of a "freestyle" type of writing. It is just another outlet to express myself.  I am honored to be included in a poetry book with 9 other women. All of the proceeds will be going to charity. So, not only do I get to put more of my work out there, but it's for a good cause. I have written 5 poems but one i am keeping for myself, to be used in one of my books.  I have one more to write for inclusion in the poetry book, then i will return to the Stone Society.

Gregor - coming February 10

I am so freaking excited about this book. I just can't tell you how much so! Rafael, book, 1 was a combination of a book I started about six years ago and the new world I wanted to create with the Gargoyles.  It has so much back story but it had to be that way.  Rafael and Kaya are a great couple and they will not fall by the wayside.  They are too important to the Stone Society, being King and Queen.

Gregor's story was so much fun to write and I knew it would be.  The love/hate relationship between him and Tessa was seamless to write. I never questioned their beginning, nor their end.  The in between for those two came instantly. The other characters' stories came in flashes, in dreams, and in the shower.  I often have epiphanies driving down the road and this happened with one of the characters.  He spoke to me and I was crying when he told me his story.  You will get a glimpse of that in Gregor.

Dante is next.  I know where his story starts and ends and I have most of the in between.  Once I did deeper, I'm sure he'll be whispering in my ear as well.

But for now, look for Gregor and Tessa's wild ride on February 10.

my resolution...

As 2014 comes to a close, I am looking forward to the New Year. As I sat and thought about what my resolution would be, I decided to hope more. I resolve to hope, every day, that love will shine through. I hope that compassion will replace prejudice. I hope that love will replace hate. I hope that smiles will replace tears. I hope that giving will replace taking. I hope that peace replaces fighting. I hope that parents love their children, unconditionally. I hope that children remember their parents are getting older every day. I hope that instead of looking at someone with disdain, people will open their hearts and see the person inside. I hope that full bellies replace hunger. I hope that soldiers return home and instead of feeling lost, they are nurtured back into a non-war society. I hope that everyone realizes that love is love and you should be able to love whomever you want, regardless of sex or color. I hope that hope replaces helplessness. I hope that everyone pays it forward because you always have something to share, even if it’s a smile or a kind word. This year, in 2015, I resolve to hope.

Happy New Year
