Hey y’all! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged.
I’ve been knee deep in this second book. I have four chapters and an epilogue to go. I’m also working on something extra special for my exclusive readers. I’ll have more details on that at a later date.
I want to talk about life after A Nocturnal Rendezvous and how that feels. First of all, I want to thank those of you who have let me know how much you loved the book. Thanks so much for the outpouring of love on Facebook and in your reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. Your kind words and support mean more to me than you know. I truly mean that.
If anyone has ever had a baby, releasing a book that you’ve poured your all into is kinda similar to that. There are the pains of carrying that child. You don’t know how it’s going to turn out after it’s born, or whether or not the world will even receive it. At the very worst, it could end up being a book that only a mother can love, haha!
That’s the thing with me; I write for me first. I write something that I want to read over and over again. The problem with that is not too many readers necessarily like what I like. Overall, I guess it’s good to stay true to yourself and write for you first. However, if you can find that middle ground and write for both you and your audience, that’s huge. I guess that’s where I am right now…trying to find that middle ground. It will take some time for me to get there. I will continue to evolve and hopefully increase my readership with each release. I love to write more than anything and my dream is to ultimately do it full-time.
When you’re brand new on the scene, it can be a pretty lonely place. That’s when you have to just keep your eyes on the prize and press forward. There are some days when it’s okay to feel sad, but don’t remain there. Pull yourself out of that rut and write your ass off. There’s somebody out there who’s itching to read what you wrote.
With that, on to the next thing. In the weeks to come, I will start introducing my readers to Shae. She’s the heroine in my upcoming release that’s set to drop this fall. Make sure you’ve signed up for my newsletter and you’re a member of my Cherryville reader group in order to see news and teasers before the masses do. I just got done last night writing a chapter that literally had me in tears. This story will put you through every emotion possible, but you will still get the happy ending that you deserve!
Alright, back to the writing cave I go! Stay sweet, everyone.—TK🍒
