A couple of months ago, I was watching American Idol–one of the rare times I actually tuned in this season–and I heard this song. And, like eleventy-jillion other people, I was blown away. (Even months later, not to mention listening to it approximately 1,127 times while writing, I still get chills every. time.) I promptly took my gushing to Twitter and it went something like this:
Me: OMG that was so amazing.
Me: I feel like I should write a book about that…
Friend: You should!
Me: Hmm… *tries to brainstorm* I don’t know, I’ll have to think about it.
Friend: *gasp* make it new adult!
Me: *brain implodes*
And thus began a whirlwind relationship with my current WIP. Which I won’t say much about, because like several other girls have mentioned, I don’t want to jinx myself. But, like all WIPs, I have a handy dandy inspiration board over on Pinterest that may give you a little insight to what this one is about. Warning: very little over there is safe for work. But it sure is pretty to look at.
Besides burning the midnight oil to get that done, I also just turned in the final edits on my next book coming out, Season of Second Chances, which will be included in one of the Carina contemporary romance holiday anthologies. I love, love, love this novella about a single dad, a jaded romantic, and a serendipitous second chance. And if staring at hot guys is your thing, I also have a board for this one, lovingly dubbed HSD for Hot Single Dad.
And now that I’m not writing or editing anything at the moment, I’m on a book binge, reading everything I can get my hands on. And I, uh, have some catching up to do… Let’s not even talk about what books are on my e-reader.
I’m currently spending a little quality time with Jax from Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis. Yeah, again. Believe me, once is not enough with that one. And because I’m a glutton for punishment and always need to add more to my list, what are you reading right now that you love?
