I hope the first quarter of 2022 has been a good one! It certainly is a change for the better from the last two years. The new year came upon me with health ailments and a reminder that I am not getting any younger. Lol. It has slowed me down but has not stopped me from working on the new series.
I have been busy creating the landscape for The Blake Boys: The Next Generation. The twist to this new series design is that I know most of the characters. I expanded the original Blake Boys big picture as it grew but this time, I have a lot more to work with to flush out my Blake babies into adult characters.
Jake and Gabby’s romance is shaping up well but there are other characters, like Mackenzie, popping up while I work on her big brother’s story! It will be a while before it’s Mackenzie’s turn to find love, but I must say her story interrupts my thoughts when mapping out her brothers’ and cousins’ romantic adventures.
I hope everyone is as excited as I am for the next phase in the Blake family saga. Don’t forget about the All or Nothing series. The characters in that series intersect with the characters in the first series. So, if you read about someone’s romance mentioned in The Blake Boys series, they probably have a book of their own in the All or Nothing chronicles.
I hope everyone enjoyed Homecoming. It was a joy to write about the missing puzzle piece in the Blake family history. If you haven’t entered the giveaway, there is still time to answer the trivia questions for a chance to win. Click the link – Homecoming Trivia Giveaway
The periodic blog entry Rabbit Hole Chronicles is now the Author Chronicles! For my 2021 end of year wrap up I will be premiering my first podcast covering my journey back to the world of writing. I will be discussing future plans (The Blake Boys: The Next Generation) as well as fan favorite topics.
My apologies for the long absence! Lots of things going on, both personal and professional. I am still on the mend from a few bouts with sickness, but I am getting better. My publisher and I have parted ways, so I am now exploring self-publishing and updating my website to reflect the changes. As I prepare for the next chapter of the Blake family saga, I take comfort in the fact that so many people love these stories and this amazing family.
So, I will keep everyone updated as I make changes. I am going to re-load the books onto retailer websites like Amazon, so no worries if you haven’t read all of them. They will be back soon as soon as I am finished decoupling from my old publisher.
I am also suffering from my characters jumping out their place for their stories. Mackenzie keeps me busy when I should be focusing on her brothers and cousins. Lol. Oh well, she is a Reed woman after all.
