Happy Monday, all. I hope you all had splendid weekends. My sister is home for spring break, so I might not be updating quite as regularly as I normally would because I want to spend as much time with her as possible. I do want to share with you some fun updates.
First of all, the sequel to Cemetery Tours is officially in the hand of all my editors (though I may have updated that last week, I can’t quite remember) AND my graphic designer is officially on the job for the cover! So exciting!
Speaking of Ben, he says, “Thank you for all the nice birthday wishes.”
Second, Cemetery Tours has 34 reviews now! Some of the new ones include…
I also have a new goal in mind. Right now, I’m aiming for the sequel to be out early to mid June. By that time, I want Cemetery Tours to have at least 50 reviews on Amazon. I don’t think that’s too unrealistic. I only need 16 more. Anyway, if you’d like to RSVP to the awesome possum Review Party on Facebook, here’s a link to the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/793721513991057/
I’m excited to be able to say I’m currently in the midst of reading and reviewing a new indie book, The Amazing Crystal by Gerald Lizee.
He, in turn, is reading and reviewing Cemetery Tours. I love doing book exchanges with other authors. It’s a great way to connect with your peers and you get a cool new book!
I’ve also almost finished the Percy Jackson series. I just have one book to go, then I guess it’s on to the Heroes of Olympus series. I am seriously loving these books. I know I’ve said it over and over again, but Greek Mythology is just so cool. I have several friends who have been revisiting their artistic days, and that plus reading all of these books is making me want to draw and paint again. I just need to find the time!
The little spare time I do have, I’ve been dedicating to the next book. This will not be a Cemetery Tours book, though I am by no means finished with that series. I figure I have at least two more books to go.
It’s a little strange working on a new book. I love it, especially since I get to work with new characters, a new setting, and a whole new set of circumstances. No ghosts in this one. It’s going to be a lot more chick lit than Cemetery Tours. But I think it will be good and I’m excited about it. It’s weird not to be writing Michael, Kate, and Luke though. They’ve been with me for almost two years now. They’ve become like friends to me. They’re probably enjoying having a break. Plus, I don’t want to be known just for Cemetery Tours. I have so many other ideas. I want to have a lot of different books, several series, several stand alone novels, etc…
Hopefully, I’m well on my way.
