I asked my Facebook page folks if they had any questions for me, and they came through with a bunch of them! So I thought I would answer them over here as well, since not everyone follows me everywhere. (But if you want to, please visit me on FB, Twitter, Instagram…. LOL)
But anyway, the first question really hit me.
Yes, yes, and absolutely yes, I am writing.
I’ve been hard at work on a historical fiction set in a small town in Wyoming. It has all the elements you will love–great friends, a few wacky characters, big hearts and lots of story. LOTS of story. It has three story lines that I couldn’t pick which is my favorite if I tried. So they all have stolen my heart.
This Book is currently clocking in at around 500 pages, so it is going to be a BIG book with lots to read and yes, some bits of romance. I hope to have it done this summer and shopped in the Fall.
At least that is the plan.
I chose this path because this book is the story of my heart. I have wanted to write about this place, these people for nearly 10 years. And finally I came to a point in road where I knew it was now or never. And I am not someone who likes the word never. So I took a huge gamble–or as my husband calls it, “my endless unemployment” and dove in. And it has not been easy, but like any change, it comes with lessons and I couldn’t be happier.
I know it has been some time since I had a book out, but life has also presented some struggles–I had to have wrist surgery just after Six Impossible Things came out, and with recovery and rehab, it was nearly six months before I could truly sit down and type. I used that time for research and taking tons of notes. Since then, I’ve been writing and rewriting. I can see the end now, and I’m so excited to get this book done.
So please, hang in there with me. If you haven’t read everything I’ve written, what are you waiting for? And if you have, well, please keep recommending my books to friends, (Might I suggest starting at the beginning with Brazen Angel?) and meanwhile I’ll keep working away.
