My Totally Unrelated to UtopYA post (with sprinkles of Utopya-ness)

These last couple of months, well really now that I look at it, this first half of this year

Was…Insane

Here is another semi-in-depth look into what happened.

I……posted-phoned Hexed Hearts on my own schedule because after much decision with a very good friend of mine, she and I decided I was falling back on a lot of my “bad habits”, and pretty much escape-goats. Making this decision, I pushed back the book by almost three months because my first choice editor at the time was booked for the next couple months.

During that time I was working on the first well quarter of Burned, I was supposed to be working on Tamed, then I ran into a huge plot hole problem, it was messy. So anyways I was working on it and then I was getting antsy about HH, to say i was distracted was an understatement

Jump forward to March, editing time *got my determined face on*
I am not going into specifics here…I was getting nervous and ready for UtopYA (three months left i needed to order swag, books, overall freakout) and things with HH weren’t going great :/

Jump forward to April and HH is pushed back again me and new editor and I are working our bumbums off on this. Not only that but I am making huge decisions in my “non-writing” life. I had been working two jobs and I decided that in the end it would be best for me to go full time at one and drop the other. I didn’t want to leave my first job but I was under way amount of stress so downgrading seemed like the best plan for me. It was, but it was also a bit of a transition.

So Rush through April, and now its May and Hexed Hearts is still being edited, all my time is dedicated to that, and to my new full time position where we had 2 employees leave, and still getting ready for UtopYA

The beginning of June felt like a blur to me. It was a count down to the long awaited UtopYA, it was the release of Hexed Hearts, it was insanity.

So

UtopYA 2015

It was really amazing this year πŸ™‚
I was so excited to have been able to go and have a half a table all on my own, and try to be a big girl. I clung though. teeheee. I had the best across the table mates, and table mates. I was excited to have gone again this year and I can’t wait for next year. I was so excited to hang with all these people I have been talking to online for months, almost a whole year.
Anyways This was my couple weeks ago and I miss it dearly. This, books, authors, readers, human beings who understand my love for writing and reading, that is my world. I hate to say good bye to it, and have to wait almost another year to go back.

So anyways

Now June is almost done.
Can you believe that? An entire half a year passed already!
People warned me that time goes by faster the older you get, I totally understand that now.

So here is where I am at:

Hunter’s Heart is the companion piece of Hexed Hearts. This is Hexed Hearts in Hunter’s POV, no I don’t have a synponsis ready but I will make one up on the fly for you in a bit. But here is the thing, back in the day before I wrote for publishing purposes, I usually wrote my books in one person’s point of view, *much like Hexed Hearts is written* Here is a fun little tidbit for you, Damaged was the first book I ever attempted to write the Male’s POV much less dual points of view. I found out that I sort of loved it. And I had planned on doing that with HH but Hunter was QUIET, silent, even.
So I pushed on with only Colette’s POV and she was such an amazing character for me that I didn’t really need to do both. BUT then he started to talk a little more than half way through he wanted his story heard.

Bastard

Alrightie moving on to my on the fly, going to totally change synopsis for my boy Hunter

Hunter’s Heart

The steady rhythm of my feet and my heart.
Alone.
I had been raised a lone wolf. I had a curse placed on me when I was young, making my wolf more powerful than the man.

Hunter had given up hope of a mate long before he knew what it meant. He had been set on a lone life, as an enforcer, doing what was best for his wolf. He lived by his wolf’s needs.
When a scent his wolf would never forget takes over him he will do anything to find her.
His mate.
What Hunter wasn’t expecting was Colette. A girl with a mysterious past, and an even more dangerous future.

Terrible? Yeah πŸ˜‰ it needs more work

Anyways I am maybe 1/4 of the way through that. I have been trying to write after I get out of work, before I go into work, on the weekends. I haven’t made a whole lot of progress because I am still recovering πŸ˜‰

I had to change the order of the Rebirth Series … again
This time Burned was moved forward and Tamed was moved back

So where I am I at with my Rebirth Series?

Currently I am a little more than 1/4 of the way through Burned as well * i am farther word wise in this then Hunter’s Heart* But I am going to tell you all a bit of a secret. I totally considered cutting everything I wrote and starting over. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the beginning. I am still not 100% but I am going to try to move forward in it.

I’ve mentioned before that I HATE writing two things at once because I don’t feel like I am getting anywhere. At the beginning of the year, before everything happened. I was hoping to have Hexed Hearts out two months ago, and Burned into edits by now if not further than that.

I hate to disappoint you all, and you all know that. I just want you all to know that I am working, I am writing and right now I need to write what comes to me. I have been stuck on a spot in Burned for a couple months, granted i haven’t really put much thought into it but since I am off for a couple months from preparing for Conferences or etc. I am working my ass off to move forward in both projects

Please if you want to keep up with me and be updated, I will do my best on the facebook, but I am going to try to do better at turning it off and writing. I feel behind 😦

So I candied up, and turned the facebook off every now and then and have been working

I hope this update helped you all understand where abouts I am and what I am up to

You are all amazing
I hope for those you haven’t checked out Hexed Hearts that you do, and I hope you enjoy it
lol
