I feel like I never blog anymore, so I thought I'd do a quick update on what I've been up to lately.
Mostly, I've been working on the next book in THE MCCAIN SAGA, EVER AFTER DRAKE. For those of you who have read MOMENTS OF JULIAN, you know that Drake is the oldest of the McCain siblings, so with this book we are stepping back in time about six years.
Here's the cover:
Here's how I imagine Drake:
And here is how I imagine Kaylee, who's POV the book is told from:
Aren't they adorable?!
So right now EVER AFTER DRAKE is with beta readers. This is the point where I get all nervous and start wondering if my book is total crap. And then I tell myself to calm down for two seconds and work on something else.
So the something else I'm working on this week is a very special project related to WHAT I DIDN'T SAY. I don't want to say too much about it right at this moment, you'll get all the incredible details later, but I will say, this is very dear to my heart. I think it's going to turn out beautifully.
What do I have planned in the near future? EVER AFTER DRAKE does come out the middle of next month after all, and I do tend to do things at breakneck speed.
I'm planing to keep moving along with THE MCCAIN SAGA. Next will come Lake's story. I'm a bit nervous for that one, I'll admit. I'm going to have to do lots of research on marines, since he is one. And he and the woman he's about to get involved with have some really hard to handle issues. But I already love them, and I haven't even written their story yet.
Wanna see Lake?
And his/their story is a bit like this:

And then you guessed it: last but not least comes Kale. And I am DYING to write his story. Though I don't think it's going to be quite what you are expecting. But it is going to be...awesomely unpredictable.
You know you want to see him. He is a model, after all....
As Sage puts it in MOMENTS OF JULIAN: "My parents couldn’t keep clothes on him until he was about twelve, and even then he preferred to be half naked. As you can see, he still does. I’m surprised he hasn’t flexed for you yet.”
There will be lots of scenes like this...
So, are you excited for the rest of THE MCCAIN SAGA YET?
