Normally when I start the year, one of the first things I do is make up a general plan for the year. What am I going to write? What’s talking? What’s the best use of my writing time for the year? Who am I going to write for? Seems like quite a few valid questions, right?
The thing is, this year is different than the last few. One of my cherished publishers has opted to close. They’re going about it a very professional way, but still…they’re closing. That means two of my series are in limbo…what do I do with them? I’m still deciding. Another publisher is allowing the writers to put the books into print. That’s great, but that’s a whole slew of cover art that isn’t ready… Makes my mind boggle. Yet another publisher switched over to a new company. I’m thrilled. I like the change, but I’m not wild about change in general. I’d rather things stay the same. I know, I know. Life doesn’t work that way.
So that’s where I’m temporarily stuck and sorting out what I want to do. I’ll get there. Promise. I’ve got plenty of books in the pipeline for this year and the characters never take a day off.
So the new direction I mentioned in the title? That’s not kicking myself for not writing when I want and giving myself some wiggle room. If the story isn’t talking for a day, I’m not going to push it. If it’s talking a lot, I’ll have a notebook handy.
What are your plans for 2018? Did you make resolutions? Why? Why not? Let me know. Speaking of New Years…
Here’s a little bit about my latest release, Sparkling New Year!
Contemporary, Sweet Romance, New Adult
From MLR Books
New year, new relationship?
Dating and Aydin Madison haven’t been good friends. He’s shy, bookish and would rather be with his set designs than most people. He knows his way around the theater, but his love life is non-existent. He knows whom he’d like to date–Brandon Kidd, the boy du jour of the art school. He’d love to rub Brandon the right way. It’s too bad Brandon doesn’t seem to know Aydin exists.
When freak circumstances throw these two together, they’ll have to decide if the sizzling connection is the key to their happy new year or just a fluke.
