ROOTBOUND, REPLICA AND CAFFEINE

Yesterday I sent “Rootbound” off to the editor, did copy edits on “Replica” and ingested WAY too much caffeine. ;) BUT, today is exciting. After where I left the ending of “Rootbound” I am bouncing in my chair to start “Spirit Sown” Lark # 7 . . . seriously. I cannot wait to see where the characters take me on this go round in Lark’s world! (And maybe, just maybe there might be a cameo from Rylee’s gang!)

Where are our 4 Rootbound chapters?

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

 

I hope you all are having a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your loved ones.

I wanted to write you a post as I know you all were expecting the first four chapters of “Rootbound” in the newsletter this time and I wanted to explain why they aren’t available.

I’ve written over 40k words in “Rootbound” well past the first four chapters. Earlier this week, I was finding difficulty moving past that number. The words weren’t coming, I didn’t know what was going to happen next (and this was with a full synopsis and plot that told me where I was going with it) and I was beyond frustrated.

I sat back and started to pick the story apart, trying to pinpoint what wasn’t working. Because when a story won’t flow for me I know there’s an underlying issue. It’s my subconscious stopping me and trying to get me to notice what’s going wrong.

In this case, the problem was simple. The writing was strong. The characters the same as always.

The story though . . . was not right. And it was not right, from the beginning.

For me, that means back to the drawing board. Plotting, new synopsis, new ending and completely new motivation.

And while I’m at it, I’m working on the plots for the final books in the series. As you can see by the picture above, I even have titles all worked out.

So while I know there will be disappointment that the first four chapters of “Rootbound” isn’t available in this newsletter, I PROMISE it won’t be much longer. Better to make sure it’s the best I can make it, rather than give you something that at a later date I will realize is sub-par.

If you aren’t already subscribed to my newsletter, you can do so HERE. It’s where all the cool kids are, and where I share secrets and goodies like where to get these chapters – it won’t be in a blog post!

Thank you for your patience, your reviews, and your support with my writing!
