No, I haven't gotten so famous that people recognize me in the store. (Thank goodness - I would probably look a hot mess!) But I was asked the other day on Facebook on a book page if I was an author, as the admin thought she'd heard that. How cool is that??
I've gotten so bogged down with LIFE that I haven't had a chance to write much lately. I've also felt a bit stuck. I know where I want Sleepless to go, but I don't want to force it. I want it be good, not fast. I guess with all of the recognition I & my books have received and the publicity I'll get over the next couple of months, I really need to finish the book, but I'm trying to do it right, and not put out #3 just for the sake of having a third book.
If you're on Facebook, and if you are reading this blog, I imagine you're pretty tech-savvy, you should check out the following pages, not just because I think THEY are awesome, but because the feeling just might be mutual. ;)
Girls with Books
Lubs Book Chatter
International Girls YA Book Club
So check 'em out, tell them I sent you, and be sure to enter to win! All three should be doing a giveaway, and GWB is reading "Breathless" for the May Book Club.
On your marks...get set...write! That's right, it's National Novel Writing Month! I know I'm kinda cheating this year (having already begun my novel), but in my defense, I have to do a lot of research into my previous novels, as well as Carly's new chosen career path! So don't judge me, k?
I spent my lunch hour writing, so for all of you anxiously awaiting Sleepless, I'm on it! I intend to give it a real shot to have this book out by the end of the year, I promise!
Also, in case you haven't heard, Breathless & Strapless are being discontinued for the next 3 months on the Nook. I know - SADNESS! But only because my Kindle sales are far exceeding the Nook, and I thought I'd give Kindle Select a go, but they require me to remove it from all other e-publishing for 90 days. You might still have a chance to buy it, but good luck. I took it offline this morning, and it should take 24-72 hours.
I think that's all the news for today. In the meantime, if this blog post gets 10 likes (on the webpage itself, not on Facebook), I'll post a little of Sleepless
