Next Up to Bat...

So, now that KM4 is done (yay) and posted online (double yay), I'm moving on to my next project. Of late, it has been my nook edit of KM1 (I'm about 40 pages away from the end). I'm basically cleaning it up--trying to catch all the little typos, tense errors, missing words, etc., that I missed because I skipped this (now crucial) edit. So, once that's done, I'll be uploading a revised version. Note, there are no big changes in this edit. I'm deleting some sentences, but not any that do anything to change the story overall.

Once I'm done with KM1, I'll move on to my Nook edit of HOSTILE KISSES. I love Daisy and Adam's story. It's a little more serious (ie, Estela's not around to cause crazy mischief and do stupid things, but she does make an appearance), and the tone is different (because it's Daisy's point of view). I hope that people enjoy it just as much as the KM series.

I don't know that KILLING MODELS will be the last of Estela and Moo. I'm sure that there are more possible stories, but I never like to force things. Because nothing's coming to me at the moment, I can't promise a new Es and Moo book. KM1-KM4 are separate stories, but they're linked too. I feel like  they should be read in order for the best experience. And because I know my patterns, I wonder if I'll be able to write just one more KM book or if I'll have another large arch that spans over three books. I feel like I'm too grandiose. :) I sometimes wonder if I'll ever be able to tone down the scope of my novels. Most of them range close to 500 pages (sometimes longer)--so, that's almost 2000 pages across the four KM books.

So, yeah. No KM5... yet. Maybe one day.

After Hostile Kisses, I plan on writing something new. Writing!! I haven't written anything in a very long time. So, I want to get a good draft of a new novel done before I start working on editing A STARTER BOYFRIEND, which was one of the last novels that I published on FictionPress. Some of you may have read that one. It's a stand alone novel (my first!).

I also plan on participating in NaNoWriMo this year. Depending on timing, I might start writing that new novel in November, or maybe I'll get lucky and will write TWO novels this year. It's possible--I just have to switch gears and bunker down.

  1. I can't believe there won't be anymore books about Estela and Moo. I need to know all about Caleb and Es's honeymoon, their kids, etc. What's the deal with Becca and Kyle going back to her detail? What happened with Marianne and Dr. Harper at the wedding? Did she get the closure she needed? As long as there are books with all of these characters I'll keep buying the books! Looking forward to reading Daisy and Adam's story!
