STEPBROTHER INKED, FREE BOOKS, A MISSING AUTHOR, AND OTHER REALLY COOL STUFF
Obviously, I haven’t been around for a while (like 6 months, maybe?), and I know I should have some sort of story to explain that away. Only … I don’t. I can’t really say what went wrong these last few months, but I didn’t feel like writing. Not one bit. In fact, it gave me anxiety to even sit down and try. And when I thought of social media and email and signings? I felt sick to my stomach. Part of that, I know, is because I let a lot of you down. I promised deadlines that I didn’t deliver, or appearances where I didn’t show, but it wasn’t because I don’t want to write or that I’ve lost the passion for my stories. Honestly, this time away has given me a new perspective, a brighter one, a much more positive outlook. When I was gone, I started going back to school full time and I learned exactly what I always thought I knew: writing is me. I am writing. I couldn’t stop even if I wanted to. So, here’s what I’m trying to say, I guess: I received an email from a reader calling me an unprofessional liar. And you know what? In a way, she was right (although I still cried!). I can’t give deadlines that I don’t meet and I can’t take 6 months breaks from stories that are unfinished.
The Never series is going to get finished; Hard Rock Roots is going to be finished; even my lesser known stuff like The Feed is going to get a conclusion. Oh, and I’ve got some BRAND NEW stuff on the way, too. Now that I’m back, I feel like I’ve been recharged and I can’t STOP. Part of this new excitement I owe to a colleague of mine: Violet Blaze. You’ve probably never heard of her because she sucks worse at marketing and social media than I do (we’re working on that together), but her debut novel comes out TOMORROW and I was lucky enough to read it as a beta. It is absolutely incredible and I would be remiss if I didn’t share it with you. I’ll share purchase links as soon as she’s got ‘em.
Stepbrother Inked by Violet Blaze
Forbidden love shouldn’t feel so good.
It also shouldn’t hurt so much.
How could the one person I can’t have be the only person I truly need?
Florian Harper Riley has my heart and he doesn’t even know it. I used to think that was okay, that I’d get over him, but no matter how hard I try, I can’t purge his sharp green gaze from my thoughts.
He’s a tattoo artist, the love of my life, the man of my dreams.
But he’s also my stepbrother.
Fate can be wicked cruel.
