My release date for JUMPER is the start of November!
I finished the first draft, finally. It was challenging with all the travel I was doing and having COVID. I will be working on the second draft starting next week. I need to read what I have written and red pen the hell out of it first. I have a signing in St. Pete (Tampa) at the end of this month, but I should be able to stay on schedule.
In the meantime, enjoy this teaser from my sexy and amazing PA, Chanel Johnson at Good Girl Author Services!
I’ve written 22,500 words on JUMPER’s early draft in the last ten days. I’m trying to finish it completely by next Monday when I leave for Sultry In The City in Houston. I’m going to Galveston for a few days before the event and Austin after. I won’t have much time to write while I’m gone, if any. I will then have three weeks to do my 2nd draft before I leave for Books At The Beach.
In the meantime here is a typo for you. You make up your mind… was it a hot tub or a hot tube?
I wasn’t going to do a JUMPER teaser. I said I would post older teasers, but then Chanel made this gorgeous graphic, and I had to post it. So here is my teaser, the scenario is that Jump, Becca, and their mates are infiltrating a cult, and he has to do something that he knows will affect their relationship… this leads to somewhat questionable sexy times.
JUMPER will be released this fall. Keep your eyes here for more details.
I am the Queen of two things: Sleep and Procrastination.
That said, I had most of this post planned on Tuesday and actually said something to the effect of, ‘I don’t have to worry about tomorrow yet’ when I was reminded about it. I then went on to do some recovery on Wednesday, and I did not get this post done. I guess I need to apologize to Miss Bri because I did indeed need to worry about Wednesday then… I couldn’t have guessed that I would be feeling badly and sleep all day.
Alas, the book. JUMPER. I am behind on it. It’s looking like the release for it will be pushed back again, with me having signings this month and next, there is just so little time for me to produce. Not to mention that my body has been in failure for weeks now. Between the anemia and COVID and now the iron infusion treatments. This is what turning 50 feels like? I would like to object on the BS involved with the last year. 49 has been a ton of nonsense.
All that said. Here is my typo of the week. I don’t know what I was trying to say… it’s all up to interpretation by the aliens.
I’ve been ‘working’ on JUMPER. I say ‘working’ because I’ve had a little hiatus while I have a holiday, a family emergency, and a flare-up of chronic anemia. Anemia sucks; when you have chronic anemia, it’s more than just fatigue. You get dizzy, weak, and you can get winded for no reason at all and heal incredibly slowly. I have an appointment with my oncologist to see what happens next, and for once I am hoping for iron infusions because they make me feel better, as overdone as they sound.
This BS has made working on the book incredibly difficult. I have built an incredibly detailed outline for the book, so when I get the energy up, I can zip through it.
Today I leave you with the genital WIP. It’s, unfortunately, balls.
Hello, and welcome to my WIP update. It Feels Like Home is going up on Amazon for paperback purchases in the next few days, and it will be up for preorder for e-books until the 4th. It comes out on the 5th of July. You can get it right now if you are an ARC reader through BookSprout or my YA & TEEN ARC Team.
My current project is JUMPER. I’m 13 chapters and 19000 words in. The first few chapters are letters, so there are many chapters at the start. That said, JUMPER is a deep and dark story. I already have TW for sexual torture, sexual sadism, SA, child SA, reference to miscarriage, PTSD by both a primary and side character, and the threat of forced breeding.
So yeah, this is a light, feel-good book you will want to share with the whole family!
It Feels Like Home is in the bag. It’s on Amazon for pre-order and on Booksprout for ARC readers. Have at it my wee kiddos.
Can you believe it? It’s feast or famine with me. I either forget to do it for so long it’s pointless, or now I’m writing two books, and I have two teasers.
