Having a summer vacation also means I don't have to feel guilty when I lock myself in my room to write. During the school year I always try and wait until they are all snuggled in bed, and after I am done lesson planning for the next day of class to write. But now...I can just say, "Mommy has to work" and I can write away.
Yesterday I had a Twitter interview with all of the awesome authors at Center One Books. It was such a new and fun experience for me! After going to my son's basketball game, then hanging at a pool party with a ton of kids, I got to answer all kinds of fun questions about my writing process, Always and Forever, and also the next book in the Secrets of Shadow Hill Series, The Prophecy! It was awesome. I am most excited because I am so proud of The Prophecy. I am DYING for everyone to read it because it was the most fun I have ever had writing! When I wrote Always and Forever, it was not initially intended to be published...It was something I wrote while on bed rest with my twins to keep my mind fresh and occupied by something other than T.V.. I think people will be surprised an excited by the direction the series is taking. There are a lot of times through The Prophecy and the third book, War of Wizards, that I hope my readers will be on the edge of their seats saying, "I can't believe it!" As more secrets are revealed, they will see how each relationship between my characters is important and plays an important role in the survival of their world.
I am looking forward to completing War of Wizards this summer and begin work on my next work of love, a contemporary romance/mystery.
If you haven't read Secrets of Shadow Hill, Always and Forever yet, you need to before The Prophecy comes out this fall!
Happy Reading My Friends!
