We have a problem...

I should be writing about my upcoming release Just Like That! June 15th it will release and I really am excited! I love this book. Love the characters, the cover, the chemistry in it, the fact that it's the second book in a series that I also love...

But the thing is, that book was finished over a year ago. I've written another book in the meantime (book 3 *G*) and am now working on this one. Let's call it The Problem for right now :)

So, yes, I'm thrilled that Just Like That is coming out SOON!!

But The Problem is giving me fits. And not just tonight.

I love this book too. Love the characters, all of that. But here's the thing. These people are becoming almost... real. Not like hallucinations (yet), but I'm thinking about them all the time. And here's why. I think I'm going to have to break my hero's heart. Actually, I believe we need to begin referring to him as my FH (former hero). Yeah, that's right. I don't think he's the guy. Not this time. Not for this girl.


My life would be easier if they could just live happily ever after. And they probably could. But she's going to be better with The Other Guy... who is-- brace yourself-- the FH's best friend.

Yep. You got it.

I didn't mean for it to happen. In fact, the best friend was kind of keeping out of it nicely. Until he had a big fight with the heroine. And then I realized why he's so passionate about this whole thing, and why there are such sparks between them and *sigh* yes... why they should be together.


My hero-- (sorry, Former Hero)-- is a great guy too. Nicer than the best friend, actually. Best friend isn't the nice-guy-next-door at all. But that makes him even better for this heroine. She thinks she wants safe and predictable but... nope. 'Fraid not. That would be way too boring.

This is really gonna mess FH up.

Which probably means I have another book in the works in the deep recesses of my subconscious. He'll need his own happy ending after all of this, huh?

Maybe that's the glass-half-full way of looking at this-- I got two for one.

Sure. Let's look at it that way. Rather than looking at all the pages and pages that will have to be re-written now.

Still--and maybe this makes me crazy-- I'm looking foward to these two realizing that there are other ways of working off their pent-up frustrations with one another ;)


  1. Oh, yeah. Don'tcha hate it when that happens? Although, getting two books out of the deal is hardly the worst thing in the world.

    Usually, anyway...says the woman who wants to cry because her trilogy's become a quintology. Or should that be pentology? Hmm...I need a linguist. STAT

  2. ha! As one of your readers I'm certainly not upset that you'll have four or FIVE books instead of "just" three! :)
