Release Day!

After 8 months of blood, sweat, and tears (okay, the blood came from me cutting off my fingernail and had nothing to do with writing a book), I'm so pleased to say that Undeclared is finally here! This is Kellan's story, a book about a guy who thought he was living the life he wanted, until he realized he wasn't.

I'm so proud of how this book turned out. I typically know much more about a story when I start writing, but this one kept changing its mind. So many lines and scenes I swore would end up in the finished product never even made it into the first draft. Or the second, third, fourth, fifth, or sixth. So Kellan and I kind of fumbled along together, finding our own happily ever afters in different ways.

Thank you so much for being part of the journey - your support and encouragement is hugely appreciated. Click here to see how much. ;)
Inspiration Pictures
Kellan McVey
One of my favourite methods of procrastination is searching for inspiration pics, and though I could see Kellan in my head, it took a while to find the right picture. Someone mentioned the movie Something Borrowed and I immediately knew Colin Egglesfield was my man. In my dreams.
Andi Walsh
I couldn't stop picturing Lake Bell's eyebrows when I thought about Andi, and fortunately Bell went through a blonde spell and I found this (old?) photo of her looking very, well, Andi-like. Natural and gorgeous and sort of threatening. Perfect.
So...about that cover.
You may or not be aware that I changed the cover of Undecided after pretty non-stop criticism of my first design. I adored that design and I held onto it for perhaps longer than I should have, in part because I loved it, but also because I loved the idea of the cover for the yet-to-be-written Undeclared. The original Undecided cover featured three people sitting on a couch, and all you could see were their legs, so for Undeclared I wanted to show hands. Ooh! Ahh! I had saved these two pictures for inspiration, and if I'd never changed the original cover, Undeclared would have had something similar to these. I love using body language--instead of just naked bodies--on covers, but alas, it was not meant to be. But in the words of my therapist (or is it Idina Menzel?), it's time to let it go.
So what's next?
I'm going to take the month of March for myself and work on a passion project I've been meaning to get to, but never really had/made the time for. It may or may not come to anything (it's upmarket fiction, which means not literary fiction but not genre either--trust me, I googled it), but I need a bit of a break from writing with the pressure of a self-imposed deadline, and this project is the perfect way to flex my writing muscles stress-free. Bonus points if it turns into something amazing!

Come April, I'll start work on my next romance idea. I'll probably play this one pretty close to the vest until it's ready to release. But here's what you need to know: it's contemporary romance (ie: not New Adult). New characters. Dual POV! And written in the third person past tense. Verrrrry excited to dig into this one.
