Welcome to THE CHECK-IN, where you can get a sneak peek into my writing progress every week! Read on to find out what I’m working on and how things are progressing in my world.
Here’s the breakdown:
- LOS: A Cadence Turing Mystery: IS DONE!! The drafts have been completed, edited, reworked, and given the stamp of approval to send off to the publishers! LOS is the third of my Cadence Turing Mystery series and I feel like the books just keep getting better with every new entry in the series. Release date for this one is slated at October 3rd, 2023! There will definitely be more posts about this in future, so keep an eye out, mystery fans!
- Bloody is the Night: This is the second book of The Night series and it is so close to being ready to send off to my publisher. I’m aiming for the final draft of this book to clock in between 75k and 80k. If my projections are accurate, I should get it finished by the middle of September, which leaves me just enough time to polish it a bit before submitting it!
- Everything else…: I have a lot of projects in the “planning” stage at the moment (a.k.a. rattling around my brain). But I’m going to work on my submission for a Mafia Romance Anthology next, now that LOS is off my plate, so look for some movement in that column soon!
I was very surprised that working on the final edits of LOS moved as quickly as it did. Happy! But surprised. I think it just goes to show you that sometimes the things you are avoiding the most because they seem super scary are actually entirely within your ability to do — you just need to sit down and do them!
LESSON OF THE WEEK: NOTHING IS UNACHIEVABLE AS LONG AS YOU CAN DEDICATE THE FOCUS AND THE TIME.
