Change of Plans

After I released Lark, I was planning on finishing up a contemporary romance (Fall into Me) I started while Lark was being edited and release that this summer and then focus on Lark #2. But lately, I've been missing Mia, Jacoby and Grey so I'm thinking now I might want to put Fall into Me on hold and focus on the sequel to Lark. My goal for this week is to fine-tune my outline. I had a very detailed outline before I started writing the first book and I wrote it in 3 months so obviously outlines work really well for me! LOL I know that some authors can write much quicker than that but for me, since my free time is so limited, I think it's pretty darn good.

I started some character development for a new story I'd like to write as well but it's going to have to sit in the back of my head (and in a folder in my Dropbox) for now..... So many ideas and not nearly enough time in the day. Maybe one day I'll be able to just write full time?

A girl can dream...

Anyway, that's what's going on!

I checked today and Lark has 103 reviews on Amazon now! That's amazing! Thank you to everyone who has left a review. :)

Much Love,

  3. So fun to read your story today. So appreciative there wasn't a cliffhanger ending but the opening for further stories. Such my favorite combination.

    Since you seem to be responding to popular demand ;} can you do your best to avoid future cliffhangers (between books) as well?

    1. Hi Amy! Thanks for stopping by and I'm so glad that you enjoyed Lark!
      I am very "anti-cliffhanger" so I can pretty much guarantee I will never write one. :) I feel that each book (even in a series) should still feel 'complete' at the end.

New Job

In February I was offered a position at the local high school working with Seniors who are at risk for not graduating on time. It's only a part time job which I thought was perfect because I'd still have time to write during the day.

Well, it's true, I still have had time to write but it's been at a much slower pace. Which is fine. I had decided this year to focus on balancing things in my life better, and well, not staying up until 3 in the morning writing every night seemed like a pretty good place to start.

And it's been GREAT!

I love working with the students. I was kind of surprised that I love it as much as I do. I always figured I'd be more of an early childhood or elementary kind of person but nope, this is the population I was meant to work with.

Which I guess sort of makes sense--I do WRITE Young Adult stories after all. :)

Here's the thing, most of these students haven't had the best support systems in their lives. Not all of them, but I'd…
