I AM still alive!

I was pretty horrified to see that it has been over a month since my last post.  Life has been a little out of sorts lately, to say the least.  We've gone through a temporary move/extended family vacation/seeing family thingy and getting into any sort of a routine has been nearly impossible.

So, what have I been up to lately?

I really enjoyed my writing break.  I told myself that I wasn't allowed to write anything from the time I finished THE EVE to the beginning of 2014.  That stretched on a week or so longer than I would have liked, but that's life for you.  So, I ended up taking TWO MONTHS away from writing!  WHAT?!  Yeah, it wasn't easy for me, but soooo needed after releasing three books and two short stories in nine months.  Some R&R was in order.

But I am HAPPY to say that I am back to writing!  I am working on a completly new project (well, sorta, I wrote 40,000 REALLY crappy words of it back at the end of 2012, before setting it aside to get going on the Eden trilogy, now it's getting a MASSIVE overhaul) and I have to say, it is daunting!  I haven't really worked on something totally new since I started WHAT I DIDN'T SAY back at the end of 2011.  And coming off a two month break means it's taking me a while to get back into the swing of things.  But we're getting there and it is AWESOME.  I'm now 10,000 words into it with a 90,000 word first draft goal.

"What is this project about?" you ask.

Well, you know how I don't like to talk TOO much about a fresh project.  But I will give you a few little tidbits:


  • It is written in present tense
  • It is told from dual points of view, a guy and a girl
  • It is a YA
  • It is dark
  • It is creepy
  • I am taking a big research trip in February to somewhere in the South (US) that has everything to do with this book


That's all you get for now.

Well, I'll give you a song, because I can't write without epic songs that match the book...

McCraw himself then took to a tight, twisty rolex replica low-speed section replicating the world's worst gucci replica pavement. "We simply gave up after four bone-jarring laps; [the car] didn't generate enough thump and shudder to complain about. After three years of chanel replica experience with the Mustang, the engineers have managed to dial out all but a few noises and harshness sources. This GT is one buttoned-up replica handbags automobile."
