I have been gone for so long you guys probably thought, “She’s dead,” and “There isn’t going to be a sequel after all!” ):
I have good news: I am EXTREMELY close to finishing the sequel, just a few chapters away, then it’s ready for the editing stage! In fact, I almost finished the book before I started college, but you know how it goes: life happens. It shouldn’t be much longer guys! I have been taking my time not just because of work and school and other projects (such as the online store I mentioned in the past I will get to later in the post), but I didn’t want the story to feel rushed. I wanted it to really be the best I could make it. Basically, I want it to be better than the first book. I am not saying I am unhappy with the first book, I just know how sequels can be sometimes.
So, here are things that are still alive and moving forward:
The sequel to “Ice”
Things that are dead or on indefinite hiatus:
The online store
As much as I would LOVE to present you guys with more physical content related to my book, such as art of the characters, t-shirts, and mugs, and even some extra lovely things that are unrelated to it just to help spice things up, I simply do not have the time. I would much rather be getting that sequel to you sooner than spending time on that anymore. And I’m sure you all would much rather have the sequel, too.
Once again, I am so sorry it has taken so long and I thank and love you guys so much for your patience, for reading my blog, and my book. I can’t wait for you guys to read it and want to talk you about it so badly…!
I can’t really say much…but I can show you a preview of the first chapter.
Not long ago I did another book signing at Decopolis in Tulsa. It was my second time there on small business Saturday so it felt kind of special…and knowing I would be finished with the book soon, I thought, “I should give out a preview of the next book!”
So later this week I will be back posting that preview for you guys as a way of showing my appreciation for standing by me! I love you guys!
