I do love the summer, even though it can be so very hot and humid here on the East Coast, but there’s a very big reason why book sales go down during the summer months…because we’re all very busy-distracted with longer days and more activities. The kids are out of school, vacations are taken, get togethers, family visiting and in my case swim lessons and lots of pool time. I love it, BUT it also means less time for writing. Let’s face it winter time and dreary days are much more conducive towards staying indoors and on your computer all day long!
That being said Catherine’s story is about half way done and coming along nicely and with Fall approaching I’m confident I’ll have a little more time to get it over the finish line!
But here’s the other distraction which I know is a good problem to have, but other characters have taken root in my head and won’t leave me alone! No, not even for this series, just completely random stories that I tried to sweep to the side and carry on, but they wouldn’t leave me alone. So I took a couple of days and frantically typed out 25K words on one and 10K words on another to just get it out of my head so that I could carry on. I literally typed until 4am last weekend with my hands aching to get it all out…I absolutely LOVE my Something series, but clearly my brain is anxious to do a couple of stand alone books afterwards!
Hope everyone else is having a great summer! Bring on the Fall!
