Well, I always have been a bit of a nonconformist.
A week ago, in the middle of the night, an idea for a new YA series exploded inside my head, so I jumped out of bed and wrote the outline and first three chapters before the clock read 5:00 AM. The day after, I commissioned the cover art.
Now, I have this new character and plotline bouncing around inside my head and the story is practically writing itself. So much so that I have been devoting more time to this new novel than in finishing Book Two of the Island Shifters series. Talk about a 180! I never thought anything could be more important to me than my precious first born.
I am not even entirely sure how it happened. I have always preferred a more adult, gritty read. But, the mental image of my new heroine and her back story is very compelling. I just have to get to know her better. I just have to join her on her unique and exciting quest.
Well, more exciting than the life of a mother of three anyway.
So, as soon as I do the laundry, wash the dishes and pick up some groceries, I get to help a new friend slay some bad guys. What more consideration do you need? It’s a no brainer as far as I am concerned.
