So I thought I’d just give a quick update as to what is going on in my world at the moment. I’m currently neck deep in book two of the Sons of Templar series and I’ve been trying my hardest to keep away from the world wide web and all of the distracting dangers it presents. That my friends, is easier said than done. I’m about 99.9% sure I not only have an online shopping addiction but also a Pinterest addiction. This, coupled with a very demanding ‘real life’ schedule, means Brock and Amy’s story hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. That’s not to say I haven’t been writing, I have, but just not as much as I’d like to. In an ideal world I would have no distractions and could lock myself up in a cottage in the middle of nowhere back home and write all day long. Sadly, considering my wardrobe is not full of Christian Louboutin and Chanel, it is not an ideal world. I’ve also been grappling with my new title as ‘author’ and everything that comes along with it. I’m literally gobsmacked (this is a New Zealand word for shocked for my international readers) at the response Making the Cut has gotten and I’m seriously touched at some of the lovely messages I’ve received. It’s freaking awesome people like a story that gave me so much joy to write. It makes my day when I get messages from lovely readers.
Now that I’ve got people waiting for Brock and Amy’s story I find myself anxious to give it to them. My writing process is undertaken a bit of a stir up, considering Making the Cut was written over months and months. I wrote about half of it then took a break to backpack around Europe for a year. Cade and Gwen were still on my mind while I was traipsing around the continent and sleeping in hostels. In fact when I got home, I couldn’t get the rest of the story out quick enough, considering I had already written it in my own head. Now, I’m not planning anymore overseas trips in the near future, as much as the beaches of Greece are calling to me. So here’s the news. I’m hoping with my fingers and toes crossed, that book two will be out in mid October. I’m also hoping to have the cemented and definite date up for the world to see, along with the cover, in the very near future. I just wanted to write this post, as I’ve been getting a lot of people asking when they will get to read Brock and Amy’s story. October is the month you’ll be getting it in your hot little hands, or more precisely on your Kindle screens.
Keep your eyes peeled for the news regarding Amy and Brock’s story, which I am going back to writing right now. I’m not going on Pinterest or checking out the latest handbag I’m obsessed with, I promise.
