It’s week 10 for #LivingLovingWriting and this week is a special week, because I typed the two magical words that every author dreams about . . . “The end.”
This is my 8th novel, and although I am so incredibly proud, this one feels more bittersweet and different from the others, because it truly marks the end. The end of series, the end of a project that has been consuming my thoughts for the last four years. And I say four, because even though Chasing Clouds is not a part of the Starving for Southern series, if you’ve read any of them, then you know all of the characters overlap. Especially in this last one, Lessons in Lemonade.
How do I feel about all of this, well if I had to give y’all one word, it would be “free.” I’ve never been one to leave a project unfinished, and now that this one is done, I feel like the skies are the limit. I can go in any direction next, from the same genre to a completely different one. I’ve had dreams of writing an early 1900’s historical romance to a fantasy/fairytale. It’s even crossed my mind to write a Grey’s Anatomy type medical romance, after all, with surgeons and hospitals is where I spend my days. What do you think? What should I do?
QOTD: If you had your wish, what would you like to see me write? What do you want to read?
Knowing now that it’s done, I’m certain the most pressing question is: When will it release? And the answer is . . . 52 days from today, April 28th. It is off to beta reading now, then to rewrites/additions, editing, proofreading, formatting, and then it will uploaded just in time for Music City with the Belles. I am so excited for this final story, Jack and Meg are just something else, and I hope you are, too. In two weeks, I’ll share the cover . . . these books together are just beautiful.
So hang tight! And have a great week . . .
