I don’t know if you’ve ever noticed, but when I really get into a book, or I’m on a major crunch to finish one, I tend to disappear from social media and this blog and pretty much everywhere. It’s kind of a thing I do. It’s never on purpose, but it does happen.
My entire world becomes this bubble, just me and these characters
I love it.
There’s something magical about immersing myself in the story. But then comes the end of the book and there’s this waiting period while the book is out to editors or beta readers or whatever else it’s out getting done. I try not to think about that book so I can see it with fresh eyes when it comes back to me.
But I miss that world and those characters. It’s only been a day, but I already miss Bea and Axel and the rest of the Reapers. But I don’t want to work on book 3 until book 2 is finalized. I might still change details that will affect the next story, so it’s better to wait so I don’t have to track changes like that.
So in the meantime, I’m plotting out this other series I want to write later this year. It’s a different genre, not even romance, so it’s a great palette cleanser for me.
I also got a new camera this week, so expect videos from me soon. Because of course, I need a New Shiny Thing to play with.
I’m also going to try to record some podcasts for Story Nerd this week as well and kind of just catch up on stuff I pushed to the side while I was working on Her Last Kill.
I think that’s all I got today. What have you guys been up to lately? Anything fun?
