Summer Cramp

So…you may have noticed my lame play-on-words in the title of this post, and wondered if it could also possibly be a typo. Let me assure you it is a completely intentional lame play on words.

I’m trying to have The Tournament of Eden out by summer, as promised, not only to stay true to that deadline, but so I can move onto the other things I’m supposed to be working on as soon as summer is here, lest my entire list of upcoming releases continues to get pushed back. I’m not sure if I’m going to make it, but I’m trying (and getting close!).

I’m very busy with my other job, designing book covers and helping OTHER people get their books released, which is great until I realize an entire week has passed and I haven’t written a stitch. (And it doesn’t help that designing covers often inspires new story ideas. Cover Design is a very dangerous job for me to have, folks.)

I also just moved, which took some time out of my schedule. But now I live at the beach (or very close to it!), so I’m all set-up in the perfect area to draw inspiration for the Breathtaker sequels, which is one project I’ve promised fans that I’ll  be working on this summer. I’m actually working on doing a minor re-write to Breathtaker itself before focusing on the sequel, partly because I wanted to re-read it to re-familiarize myself with everything that’s going on before jumping into coinciding events in the sequel(s), but also partly because it’s so close to being a novel instead of a novella and I think it could be improved a bit that I might as well give it that little boost while I’m re-reading it.

I’ll hopefully also get the sequel to Whisper done, which I plan to start outlining/drafting over the weekend. And also the next book in the Ace series!

So, stay tuned and wish me luck. I’m trying, but I’m super swamped!
