I’ve been debating whether or not to have a blog here. But, after so many years of blogging (elsewhere) – I realized that blogging is part of who I am and part of my creative process.
It might not always be pretty, but I love getting my words down on the page. It’s especially wonderful to have these notes to look back on years from now – if nothing else, for me to have a laugh and see how far I’ve come! 🙂
Last month (April 18th), I released the first book in my Young Hollywood Series – Young Hollywood Book 1: Deep Focus! I was so nervous when it published – I was cringing thinking that people would actually be reading my words!
But then, people started reading the book and FLIPPING out over it – literally going crazy. So, that made me feel pretty happy! 🙂 They were like: WHEN is the next book coming out? I need it NOW…. (Which was a total surprise to me, and let’s face it…pretty awesome!)
Thankfully, I had already written the first 3 books in the series – and just needed to pass them through my editor. So, Young Hollywood Book 2: Sleeper Hit was released on May 7th, just a few weeks after Book 1!
Now, I’m finishing up Book 3 – and hope to publish it before the end of the month! Book 3 drove me CRAZY (or I should say it IS driving me crazy, since I’m still hard at work on it!)
There were a few plot twists I changed, and I’m holding one HUGE surprise back for Book 4, since it will make the story so much more interesting. Plus, it left me more room in Book 3 for those fabulous intimate scenes! Haha.
Anyhoo – I am also working on a SUPER HOT time travel love story. That book should be out hopefully in June! It’s a little different than Young Hollywood, and I love it just as much!
I’ve only been sleeping about 3 hours/night for the past year (since I committed myself to novel writing) – I just love writing more than sleep…so who needs sleep?! Haha.
Seriously, though – I have to get back to my draft of Young Hollywood 3, because I have a twisty scene to write and it’s not going to write itself! 🙂
Until next time…
