I have to admit to being the world’s worst blogger. If it’s any consolation, my every spare moment has been spent working on Book Two of the series… entitled “Worlds Collide” (I’d love to get your thoughts on the title!). The cover has been created, the story is being proofed, and it will soon be ready to go out to beta readers (next week fingers crossed!). I had originally hoped to publish by Christmas, but there was a section of the story I wanted to research and refine, so I did. My editor’s appointment is now set for mid-January and I’m now looking at a release date of the end of January.
Stay tuned for a cover reveal and excerpt!
I am excited to share with everyone my first blog-sponspored author interview and giveaway! Working with Kaitlin has been a lot of fun. I hope you can check out her blog, Reading is My Treasure, and my interview and give us both a shout-out about the giveaway. And for anyone interested in Book 2, I gave her the scoop!
