August was an exciting month!
- I got new covers for my New Sight series
- My New Sight series is now complete with the release of the final book, New Vision
- The Little Mermaid retelling collection that I have a story in came out on the 31st
- My hubby updated my website, so now all of my books are there
- I’ve spent the past two weeks preparing for the local ComiCon event, FanX
Look at all of the pretty books!
I received an unexpected opportunity a few weeks ago.
Unexpected isn’t always bad, and in this case it has thrown what will be a delightful—but stressful—wrench into my plans for the rest of the year.
As some of you know, I’ve been working on an epic, YA Sci-Fi Space Opera for the past six or eight weeks. I’ve been looking forward to writing this tale for quite a while—I’ve had the idea for six years—and when I started to plan I realized that the story is bigger than I thought, and I was super excited about it. In August I even managed to sneak in 40k of the first book.
Then this wrench gets tossed into the mix, and now I’m staring down two different paths:
One leads to this YA Space Opera that will be amazing!
The other leads to writing my Academy series first.
The Academy begins with the Little Mermaid retelling that’s in the Fractured Sea collection that just came out last week, and will feature seven other fairy tale retellings that will all be at The Academy.
Now I’m feeling like a much younger version of myself, torn between Hostess Cup Cakes and the original Transformers cartoon. Both are awesome, but I can’t have both. Which, now that I think about it, I could totally eat the Cup Cake and watch the show at the same time, but hopefully you get the gist.
I’m amazed at how much I’ve strayed from my original goals for the year, but everything has been for the best.
New Adventures await!
