Thank you, everyone, for the positive reactions to the upcoming release of Marked. It is humbling and exciting when someone comments on the books to me. As I continue to work on the edits, I am also in a little bit of shock. Shocked that this is my third book (it really feels like Kyreen came out just last month!). Shocked that I am so excited. Shocked that I am enjoying myself so much.
Kyreen was such a long process, both in the getting it written, then in getting it published, plus I stressed so much over the entire process so much that it felt like work. I doubted the story, doubted the writing, doubted myself. I still have some doubts, but I’m committed to finishing out the story (there will be two more books to complete Kyreen’s story). At some point during this latest book, I realized I had stopped writing because I had to for external reasons and now I am writing for myself. I want to see this story completed. I want to spend time with these characters. Since I’m concentrating on the edits and publishing details, I have not written anything new since December, but every day I think about the upcoming books. I itch to sit down and scrawl out more scenes. Some days I even give into that urge and scribble out a few paragraphs, particularly those that keeps running around in my head, kind of like a musical ear worm, but enough about me, more about the books!
A big thank you to everyone who has already pre-ordered Marked. Keep an eye on this blog for a sneak peek excerpt before the release.
