Warm nights that stay light longer than they should
The smell of sunscreen
Sure, all of these things make my heart happy when June comes rolling around, but my absolute FAVORITE thing about summer is that it's when I typically start a new book...and this summer is no exception. I'm outlining a new story as we speak, and it is SO exciting! Not only because of the creative rush that comes from meeting new characters and discovering their worlds, but because this book is for adults. *gulps* Yes, that's right, I've decided to take a stab at a Rom/Com book aimed at the old folks in my era. (80's babies, you're going to love me) It's an idea I've been toying with for about the last seven years and I think I'm finally ready to see what can come of it.
Of course I still love writing YA, and am working my
little arse off to get some action going with my latest MS, but for now I think my muse needs a break from the intense and emotionally-wrenching and instead needs a little more snark, swoons, and raw-edged comedy in his life. So, that's the plan. Wish me luck, guys. I'll be back soon with details...
BTW, all those buttons over there --> the ones with the catchy PhotoBucket threats on them, are still active, they just want me to pay for the cute little images I used before...and I won't do that. At some point I'll revamp this page, but until then, we shall make do.
