I know it’s been a while since I’ve last chatted with you, but trust me when I say that I come bearing no tricks, only treats! Before we get to that, I want to update you on what’s been happening with me over the summer and early fall.
As you know, the past nineteen months have been crazy for everyone. Although I’m doing my best to get used to the “new normal,” I can’t help but acknowledge how different the world has been for me. For example, I’ve only worked outside of my home twice since this whole ordeal first began. Prior to that, I used to leave my home every day and travel by plane on a regular basis.
You’d think that with all of this time spent at home, I would’ve written 6 full-length novels. Instead, I’ve been escaping in other ways just to keep my sanity. I’ve seen a few great movies in 4D, binged Bridgerton and Squid Game on Netflix, and I’m slowly coming back to life.
I can’t wait to get to that place where reading and writing are my refuge once more. I definitely plan on tackling my massive TBR list since I’ve completed my biggest writing projects for the year. Let me know your book recommendations! As far as writing goes, I do have one surprise project in the works. The cover is already done. Hopefully I can stay focused and not have to adjust my target date. We’ll see how I do in this upcoming NaNoWriMo. 😉
Making the Holidays Bright and Steamy!
Now, on to the “treats!” Last week, I turned in my completed manuscript to the formatter of the “Caught Under the Mistletoe” holiday anthology. My short story is called “A Snowfall’s Chance,” and the tropes are missed connection/secret admirer, and it ends with the main characters, Shane and Olivia, being snowed in together on Christmas Eve!
Shane’s and Olivia’s looks were inspired by hottie British legend David Beckham and gorgeous German-American actress Zazie Beetz. I did write an epilogue that takes place a month after the story ends, but I had to keep it out because it would’ve taken me over my word count. But fret not, I will ultimately share what happens to these two sometime after the anthology releases. In the meantime, you can preorder it for just $1.99. It comes out December 7th!
Georgia Returns to Vegas!
One week from now, I will be on a plane to Vegas for a huge author conference. On my last day in Sin City. I’ll be one of hundreds of authors signing books. It will be my very first in-person event! It all goes down at the Bally’s Convention Center on Friday 11/12 from 10 am – 4 pm PT. I have 4 big giveaways planned every hour starting at noon! To find me, just look for this big sign haha! Hope to see you there!
