I remember when today was called Decoration Day. And I remember when it was about more than sales, firing up the BBQ grill, and having the day off. Many of us still take a moment to recognize those military men and women who served this country, sometimes giving their lives and very often, parts of themselves in the act of doing their duty.
That said, no sales, BBQ or time off for me. I’m working, and will be from now until December. If I want to keep the publishing schedule I set for myself–and in some cases, have promised my readers–I don’t have a lot of time for procrastinating. I still plan to get DOUBLE CROSS up for preorder in time for a July 1st release. I’m crossing my fingers for a mid-July/August 1st release for MOONSTRUCK: LIES, followed shortly by the release of THE DEVIL’S CUT. This fall remains open for debate. Not because I don’t want to write all the books I have lined up but due to circumstances and on account of because…
Mr. HQEd called me Friday. We had a very long and productive talk. While it’s not totally official until I receive, sign, and return the contract, we do have a verbal agreement for two more Red Dirt Royalty books. Clay and Chase get their books, manuscripts due in August and November, release dates sometime in 2016, hopefully. There’s an open option for the two books after that–Cash and Kade. So…YAY! 😀
The good news is, there will be two more Red Dirt Royalty books! The bad news is, OMG so many words to write on all my projects! Good thing I don’t sleep much and live on coffee, right?!?
And speaking of DOUBLE CROSS, do you remember when I said I needed to go back and look at the first part again because some things were bugging me? Yeah…about that. Those layers I was worried about were already there, for the most part. 🙄 Yeah, yeah. I know. I’m weird like that. Despite me, Duke’s story is really shaping up. I hope y’all enjoy it when you get your hands on it. Soon, my pretties. Soon!
One last bit of randomness. Only had some fun this weekend. She designed a Nightrider patch for me. Click on the Moonstruck tab, then go to the Nightriders’ page to see the two versions. I ❤ them like damn and whoah! Be watching for them (and personalized patches) in upcoming Nightrider books!
Have a good day doing good things. I'll be thinking of you while I'm slaving away at the keyboard. 😉
