Unfortunately, life took a very sharp, downward spiral for me shortly after my last update. Which, yikes, is almost a whole year ago now! (But I’m getting this update in before May 1st so that’s got to count for something, right?)
Where have I been throughout the last half of 2018 and early 2019?
My Dad passed away last July and his loss has hit me very hard. It still punches me in the gut daily. He was one of my biggest author-champions, so continuing to write became a major challenge I needed to overcome.
Come November, I participated in NaNoWriMo again and dedicated the book to him. This seemed to help get me out of my writer’s slump. After I had written ‘House of Red’, he thought there was enough material and interesting elements for at least a sequel (although I had not intended for there to be more than one book at the time). My latest NaNo story, which was another win for me at 56,578 words, is the sequel entitled ‘Wicked Wolves’.
This is my fourth completed book and is definitely not my last! ‘Wicked Wolves’ is currently with my editor and I hope to have it published this summer, so stay tuned for more updates on that!
In other exciting news, I’ve been invited to a local author book signing this coming Saturday, May 4th from 1-3pm at Cupboardmaker Books in Enola. They’re currently finalizing details on who will be there, so please check out their website.
Here is where the signing will happen:
Cupboard Maker Books
157 N Enola Rd (Routes 11/15)
Enola, PA 17025
I’d love it if you came out and said hi! Introduce yourself, hang out, peruse their large selection of books and meet their kitties from 1-3pm on one of the nerdiest holidays of all-time, Star Wars Day!
May the Fourth be with you!
