I'm Still Alive!

Hey guys! I know I haven't updated in a while, so I'm popping on here for a friendly 'hello' and 'this is what has been up with me lately' post.

First, I have been writing lately. I'm not currently writing the Mutilated series, but it's not been cancelled or anything. I know the overall storyline for Mutilated, but I'm still not sure who the next book should be told by. I don't know if I want to return to Becca's voice or Nadia's voice. Whoever tells the story will obviously change the plot of the book. I've even debated telling it from former Mutilated Arteries bassist Vertebrae (Tyler Greene.) When I figure out what I'm doing with the story, I'll dive into it. I can't promise a release date or anything else as of now. I can promise that it will be written, though.

As of right now, I'm working on a book set in the same world that Behind the Wooden Door is set in. If you've read BTWD, you'll see a lot of crossover in this book (Spark.) If you haven't read BTWD, you won't be lost or confused if you decide to read Spark.

Second, I suck with deadlines. I do not set them because life has a way of making things happen that makes me miss them. I'm a story-teller not an author. Being an author was and is not what I want. I did not sign up to do promotion and make deadlines (though I do love promoting my sister's books!) I do however hope that people love the stories I tell because I love them.

Third, I have been dealing with a lot of health issues over the last year. I'm not using it as an excuse as to why I suck at getting books out sooner, but it does play a part in it. Please just be patient with me.

Last, Nikki has her next Saturn book, Cross Me Off Your List, out on April 27th. So, uhm, naturally you should go get it. It's amazing. (See, I like promoting Nik's books!)

Much Love to everyone who reads my blog and my books.
