I can breathe.
No one had more doubt than I did four months ago. As many of you know, I decided to get Ashes out by August 20th. I wrote Elemental off and on for over a year and edited it off and on for three. I have always been the kind of writer that works on several projects at once. Dedicating myself to only one thing was, to say the least, hard.
As certain things in life happened and my internal(are you sure infernal shouldn't go here?) editor made me erase three whole chapters, I found myself behind when July hit. I will say I tested myself those last weeks. Still, with lots of encouragement and a small amount of stubbornness, it did get finished.
I ended up with something I am supremely happy with.
It really makes me excited to keep writing and putting books out for people. Also seeing where I can go in the future, fills me with hope. After the release and a bunch of marketing for the giveaway I may have slept for a full twenty-four hours. I came out of that sleep ready to work.
I have started on the third book in this series with a surprising amount of energy and excitement. I cannot wait to cap this story off for readers and finally have what has been living in my head all of this time out in the world. I have been told by my family I can't set a release date for it yet, lol. Still, I want to say thank you all for being on this journey with me and teaching me and encouraging me. Blogging has truly made me a better writer.
There is a blogger who was nice enough to post about Ashes today. If you would go to his blog and say hi, that would be awesome. While there check out the ongoing story of his book, Woven. (David Powers King)
Also 5 more days on giveaway. Get those entries in.
Anyway, time to go write. Hope all is well your way. As always, have fun and keep writing.
