So….Yeah…..

I am in the cone of shame

For why you ask?
Because yet again I set up a release day and I am blowing right through it
Well the hope is that one day I will get this right 😉

So let me explain what happened. First off, no I am not going to say names, and please don’t ask because I am not here to attack just to explain the situation.

So the beginning of January Hexed Hearts was through betas, and all done being written and was supposed to go off to the editor. I <– me — after having a discussion with who I consider my mentor, friend, and all around amazing person, decided it would be best if I went through it one more time, Really go in there and flesh it out, try to pick apart my bad-habits.
I agreed, only to find out my editor was booked up until March. Well because of *obvious* issues I had, had in the past I agreed to just wait, push back my original *in mind date* All the while this was happening, in real life I was getting use to working two jobs, paying bills, and just trying to get other writing in but I was honestly having writers block. I felt a lot stuck too because HH was on the back-burner when I knew that it was ready for an editor.
All the while *this does have something to do with the overall story i promise* I found out that a friend of mine from way back when actually started his own editing service. I was super excited to hear about it and told him I would keep him in mind for later works but I already had set something up with a different editor for HH
so that is what I was going to do.
FINALLY MARCH!!!
I made it through a freezing February

And March was here! I was ecstatic! Editor had HH and I was going to write, and wait patiently for editor to finish. I am not here to place blame, and I am not here to dirty anyone’s name, hence why I am NOT going to say the name but you deserve to hear what happened and why I am behind.
Our three weeks were up and I didn’t have anything from editor. We talked and in the end we had to go our separate ways.
So what did this mean for me? I had a partially edited book, and a creeping deadline.

So yeah I was so not freaking out or anything. All the while I had been working on my secret project with a bunch of other amazing authors which by the way is coming VERY VERY SOON

11048684_620010371469557_2277260946146292112_o

*wink wink*

I had been working with that friend from way back when on these edits to see how we worked together. Well it turns out, he is really good for me. He pushes me, and makes me do better. Well I begged and pleaded *pretty much just asked* if he could help me out with Hexed Hearts. He went looked through the partially edited copy I had and decided it would probably be best we just start over. Each editor, edits different ways, and I agreed to do that.

So where does this put us? This was happening in the last week of march/ first week of April. so new editor and I began work on HH, but have I mentioned that this book is big? Like a lot bigger than any other of my books (aka 122000 words to give you a reference 389 pages in word (double spaced)

I KNOW! Crazy!

Here is the thing, I wanted this release to go so, so right and so amazing because I am beyond proud of the book I had produced. So i signed up with Xpresso Tours for a book blitz/release blitz thing which was supposed to be happening in four days (that was the deadline for us)

I made the very tough decision to cancel the book blitz for now, I am rescheduling that, but the reason I canceled is because I honestly don’t think we will finish HH and do the job that it deserves if we try to squish it into four days being we are on chapt 12-14 out of 32

So yeah.

I am not trying to place blame on editor 1, I am not. Because I was the one who pushed off in the beginning of the year, and shit happens. I get that.
I wish i could say that I could pull a miracle out of my ass but here is the thing, I told you all that editor 2 really pushes me. And he does. I am even more proud of HH and all the work we have done on it so far that I hope you all understand that as much as I want to give this you like three days ago, I am thinking it might be a little longer

Trust me when I say this sucks. It really does. I was expecting at this time of the year to be finishing up the last bits of Burned and getting it prepared for betas and editor.

Like I said though life happens, shit happens.
Both editor and I have other jobs, and other things going on in our lives that as much as i wish i could say we could spend every waking moment on this, we can’t. I wouldn’t ever ask him of that either.

I can’t promise a date yet.
I am so sorry. I can’t even explain how sorry I am.

So in other news! (happier news)
I have just ordered a whole slew of swag that i am very excited about
And i got a banner! I am going to wait to reveal that until I get the physical one here!
But i got a new fancy logo that I am head over heels with!
Here:
LogoIt’s it amazing?!?!?!?!
I love it!
Anyhoops I am still working two jobs but that might be changing soon and i might be downgrading to one but upgrading to full time. It sucks but it would guarantee me two days off which means two full days of just writing stuff! EEEE!!
I have been working on a very special treat for UtopYA that I am hoping I will be able to do at other cons!
pssst its a Rebirth Paranormal Personality Quiz 😉
And I have that short coming out very soon!! I can’t wait for you all to meet Dom and see my more saucy side 😉

Excerpt:
I took in a huge breath and stuck out my hand.

“Colette Doe, and you are?” I waited. Yellow eyes didn’t move his arms from their resting place in front of his chest.

“Your mate.”

Well this was going to be more fun than I thought.

“I am trying here. Can you please?” I asked. I jutted my arm out again as if emphasizing the fact that I was standing there like an idiot.

“Hunter Felan,” he said. Hunter took a step closer finally letting his arms drop but he didn’t take my hand in his.

“Awesome, you have a name yellow eyes.” I said with a smile.

Hunter narrowed his eyes.

“Don’t call me that,” he said. He moved a little closer.

“What? Don’t like that pet name? How about growly voice? It is the only name I had for you since I met you.”

At that remark he snarled and moved into my space.

“You would have known my name before if you had asked.” He said through clenched teeth. His eyes flashed.

“I was partially unconscious since I’ve known you, thanks to you.” I said. My eye twitched, my body started to hum with anger.

“How the fuck was I supposed to know you pack-bonded with another wolf?”

I narrowed my eyes this time. A comeback was coming I could feel it. He waited, he looked like he was ready to let his firm line of a mouth relax, and a triumphant look in his eyes started to shine. When it hit me and I leaned back on my heels a satisfied smile spread across my lips.

“When I started to scream in pain because I was being ripped away from him. Unless you think so lowly of yourself, that I would cry just being pulled to you.” As satisfied as I was that I thought I won this, he looked more pleased by the second.

“So indirectly you just told me you find me attractive.” His mouth was now in a relaxed smile.

“I didn’t imply that, at all.” I sputtered.

“You did.” He was moving closer and closer.

Somehow my back found the wall, and my chest was about to be pressed against his. I looked up from the middle of his chest to his eyes. I swallowed hard. My heart took on a new beat, and butterflies flocked my stomach. My eyes collided with his and my wolf came to the surface. I had never felt her so strongly before. It was like she was looking out of my eyes for me, and seeing his wolf who also seemed to be right on the edge of his skin.

“She finds me attractive.” He whispered brushing his knuckles against my cheek.

Where his knuckles touched, I felt a trail of heat following. My knees never felt so weak. My eyelids had a mind of their own and started to shut from his delicate touches. My body seemed to bow at its own will. My lips suddenly felt too dry. I thought about licking them but I quickly stopped that thought from forming.

Synopsis Reveal and all that Jazzzz

Yeah excited right? Did you see that right, synopsis reveal?!

YEEEAAAHHH

It’s here finally! The synopsis reveal for Hexed Hearts

Let me put this out here first though

I know I am evil 😉

Kay here it goes: Hexed Hearts IS NOT – i repeat – IS NOT part or connected to the Rebirth Series AT ALL

This is a standalone novel, that I do sincerely hope people see and read as a standalone. But because I am crazy and an author there is no way in hell I could possibly let this book stand all alone in this beautiful awesome universe I created. So there will be a companion piece for this novel in the male’s POV – cause yup you guessed it, this is completely in one persons POV. Unfortunately my main man in this book decide to be come quite loud about a half way through. I am a firm believer if starting a series or book a certain way (aka in one POV) to keep it that way. Hence why all the Rebirth Series will always be in two peoples POVS, and why any book that may *cough cough probably cough cough* follow in this “series” will also be in ONE person’s POV. Its a personal choice. I am sure readers don’t care but i honestly do, it isn’t a make or break when i read something but it does bother me some. We all have preferences right?

So I will stop talking FINALLY and give you the synopsis

Let Me Explain

Before we get the pitch forks and torches out let me explain

So I am trying to get better at keeping up here, and keeping up on facebook with post and what nots.
Most of you know I work at two other jobs – if you didn’t know you do ^.^
And I am not quite sure why but anytime I decide to come to the basement to catch up on TV – while I try to write – I always decide to write a blog post – sooooo I should try to catch up on TV more often is what I am saying 😉 cause then I get on here to write an explanatory blog to you all wonderfuls who I adore.

So heres the happs!

This coming Saturday – November 8th is so very exciting! Why?
Because I am going to an signing! I don’t want to say my “First” but it sort of is my first. I know I went to UtopYA got a featured spot at Carlyle L.’s table, we have been through this, but this is the first time I will be on my own, and there exclusively for me! O.O <— yes shakes in boots!


Besides mine aren’t baby seal…..O.O

So if you are in Michigan and close enough by please come and support me and many other MI authors!
here is more info: https://www.facebook.com/events/270591943139935/?sid_reminder=2441785355561598976

Alright.

Here is the deal awhile back I gave you a better understanding of where the Rebirth Series was headed, and what I was planning for releases. BUT

This is one of the reasons I don’t put my books up on GR (Goodreads) before I actually start writing them and I am more than half way through – even then sometimes I do put it up until I am DONE writing the thing…why? Because I …
am…

A pantser

What does this mean?

A pantser: (Becca’s definition) – A pantser is a writer who doesn’t plot, they write as they go and hope for the best. New ideas come to them as they write.

A pantser: (An official definition) – A NaNoWriMo term that means that you ‘fly by the seat of your pants’ when you are writing your novel. You have nothing but the absolute basics planned out for your novel.
(sourced from urban dictionary)

So what this means for me, is that while I thought I had the Rebirth Series all figured out now. I didn’t.
Let me explain, when I started to write Damaged it was actually derived from *dramatic music* Hexed Hearts!
Crazy I know (Hexed Hearts is that werewolves/witches book I have been working on) The idea of Audrey came from the beginning of Hexed Hearts. Weird I know. Anyways Damaged was originally going to be a standalone, then these two characters started to come alive, and this whole new idea formed – and TA-DA Rebirth Series

Here is some even more craziness! Book two was originally supposed to be Nixie’s! buuuttt her story wasn’t coming to me, instead Elijah of all people was practically SCREAMING at me. So I took out Nixie’s epilogue and inserted Elijah’s. This is where the – me being a pantser comes into play – and also just being a writer.

Let’s take a second to detour real quick.

Muses:


They come in all shapes and sizes, but here is the thing, if you force writing, more times than not it feels forced. I understand that the indie community has started to spoil readers and trust me I am in on this with you other readers! Give me my next book in my series like yesterday please and thank you! We as indie authors can do that now, we can produce than one book in a series a year, hell some people are crazy enough to FINISH series in one year. BUUTTT sometimes authors get stuck and that is when they produce that random other book during your series.

Well here I am going to let you in on a secret

Author’s muses run and decide the game. A lot of times I know authors say its their authors that are their muses at the time. Well that is true for me.

Obviously – because you notice what Elijah did? He took. He took his spot as the next in the series. So back to that-ness, yeah circled back 😉

Here is the thing Amani who one of my favorite new characters sort of started out really loudly at the end of Healed has become extremely quite while a sultry, new accented voice as started up….

djinn4

Amani

VS

marcus

                     Marcus

So after thinking about it… I realized something actually really important to the plot of the ENTIRE series. Actually a HUGE plot hole. HUGE HUGE HUGE PLOT HOLE one that even with the help of my friend Desiree DeOrto I still don’t feel comfortable with. So after talking to Jennifer my new PA and taking a couple days to really think about it – because I didn’t think when I made the first decision.

Tamed – (Amani’s book) is being flipped with

Burned – (Marcus’ book) so next to release – after Stolen will be – Burned. I honestly sat down thought and “plotted” as much as I could and I feel very good about this decision. I realize that some people were VERY excited about Ami’s book and I am sorry I was all for writing her book but …. :/ this feels more right to me.

I understand that Healed has Amani’s epilogue

So I have a few options I can

1) Pull Amani’s epilogue from Healed and insert Marcus’s which will be posted here as well
B ) Write Marcus’s epilogue in Stolen
III) Reveal Marcus’s epilogue here on my blog

So that is my biggest newest news to share right now.

Like I said I realize that this might upset some readers but in the end I have to do what is going to be best for my series and what my “muse” demands of me.

More Updates

So I know I am terrible about keeping up with this blog :/ I am sorry!
I try to stay active on my Facebook page at the very least. And I posted there awhile back with an update on the Rebirth Series and other projects *wiggly eyebrows*

And I pointed something out to myself when I did that, people don’t live inside of my head

……

Crazy I know right?

So while I came to this epiphany I also realized a lot of times I don’t post about what I am writing on, editing on, or in general DOING on my facebook page or here. So I wanted to get everyone caught up on book related things first.

So my books:

The Rebirth Series:

Releasing: Winter 2014 <– yes! alright here we go with the real updates

Stolen is a prequel that I am hoping that could be read as a standalone/if someone wanted to start from here could. So that is why I had made the tough decision to go with a new editor for Stolen completely. Katherine Eccelston did the editing for Healed and I was pleased as peach working with her, but I needed someone who hadn’t been connected to the series AT ALL to read/edit this novella.

Rare Bird’s owner – Jessica and I are going to begin working on edits Oct 1st, I am excited, thrilled, nervous as hell! This was totally out of my comfort zone, and I can honesty say that I am glad I did it. So I am hoping but I won’t set a release date until I actually start working on the edits – because of past issues – for a late – but mostly likely early November release for Stolen

That will concluded my releases for 2014 I wish i could say I had another one to surprise you with, but I don’t. So let me continue on with the rest of the series.

tamedTamed: (here i will give you an exclusive look see at the TENTATIVE synopsis)

Amani was happy in her small town sort of life with her best friend and adoptive sister, Valentine. When she was forced out of her home, and into the servitude of the Long Clan things could never go back to how they were. The clans were changing becoming more violent, and suddenly being a rare Djinn was not safe outside of the protection of a clan. When Amani joins the York Clan with Valentine she jumps at the chance to escape Valentine always trying to heal her. What Amani doesn’t expect to find off on an adventure to find the rumored rebirth paranormal she heard so much about was an all too stubborn, all too dominant male that she might find hard to resist.

Benedict had always known what he was. Different. While he didn’t prefer the company of people over animals he did end up always being the leader. People seemed to always submit around him. He was okay with it, being too dominant himself, yet when a purple haired, Indian woman walks into his life he realizes not everyone wants to be tamed. Benedict is about to learn about his heritage and how dominant he really can be.

Old enemies are back with a personal vendetta against Amani and determined to snag the next greatest Rebirth paranormal. Amani and Benedict need to learn how to get along in order to outsmart and outmaneuver their enemies.

Expected Release Date: Early Spring 2015

broken I would like to point out this is a TENTATIVE title for this book

Since I did it with on already how about just the last two as well 😉
(please remember these are tentative synopsis-es things are subject to change, as Broken was meant to be the second to release things may change for this in general)

The paranormal world is in chaos. While clans begin to draw lines, the search for Rebirth paranormals rages on.

Nixie, a siren with a feisty, peppy attitude is so done with a certain werewolf’s antics. She is ready to forget and move on. The problem is, the past isn’t ready to let her go, and neither is a certain werewolf. Now torn between returning to the sea, or staying on land with her friends, Nixie finds out some interesting things about her past she wasn’t ever prepared for.

Dallas said good-bye to the girl he thought was his one true mate. His father reminding him every step of the way that a creature of the earth and a being of the sea could never be. Dallas had all the makings of being the Alpha of his own pack, especially after being trained and prepared by his father. Is he willing to give up the girl he loves to lead the pack or will he be there when Nixie needs him the most?

The search for the Rebirth paranormals has begun, and some may be closer than they think.

Tentative Release Date: Summer 2015

Burned

The Conclusion to the Rebirth Series

Burned (This may contain spoilers please be aware of that, that is why I don’t tend to post my synopsis-es before the next book is out)

Marcus had always been a bit different in the fey community. He was always spending more time in the human realm than in the shade. He was meant to be a prince there, but refuses to take the title. When the fey start to notice an increase of exist paranormals reappearing they start to become interested. While Marcus tries to work on smoothing things over with the fey community and the rest of the paranormals he discovers what he had been missing and waiting for, for a very long time.

Althea knew who and what she was since a very young age. She could remember past lives, in different, yet somehow always familiar bodies. People had always been after her for as long as she could remember. The feathers that she so long had protected had been ripped from her back more times and she cared to count and she wished for a final death. When she runs into a fellow red head she thinks nothing of it. Until yellow eyes stare back at her she knows that she couldn’t outrun him forever.

War has come. The last of the rebirth paranormals emerge. And change is coming.

Tentative Release: Winter 2015

That is the Rebirth Series. I have been asked a couple times if there will be another book, and in reviews people always say they hope there is. There is! Don’t you fret! I don’t mind being messaged about these things I don’t so please message away! But I figured for the general public to might think I bite – which I don’t I would put this out there for you all ^.^

Now onto other projects.

I am sticking with PNR for awhile ^.^

Untitled <- yes. no title yet, and no I am not trying to be super sneaky about the title if I had a title for you, I would have announced it already because I am 70,000+ words into the book! Hehehe and I am just a little over half way

I know.

And I don’t have a synopsis for it yet either……O.O I know i am horrible. This is what I will tell you:
Witches. Werewolves.

EXPECTED RELEASE DATE: Early (as in early early) 2015 – think late Feb, early March

This book is meant to be read as a standalone and I am still upset with the main male in this book, he didn’t chose to speak up until 40,000 words in, and by then it was too late to go and add in his chapters sooooooooo there will be a novella in his POV of this book and explore the deep, dark mind that is Hunter.

Also I had another idea brewing for this universe so there will also be a companion piece that can be read as a standalone as well, the only real connections will the the universe this is set in.

Anyways back to Untitled since this is my current WIP it is going to be the next released

I want to state this right here and now: I understand the compulsion a new story holds over an author, sometimes its so strong that even if you have another series going on you CANNOT ignore it. That is sort of what happened to me with Healed even, Elijah’s book was supposed to be released AFTER Nixie’s book Broken) but he called to me. He was demanding most of my attention. Annnnnd unfortunately I both wanted a little break from the Rebirth series, not to mention Colette and Hunter’s story (Untitled) was calling to me. Demanding my attention. Also it kinda came before the Rebirth Series.

Untitled was a book I started over a year and a half ago, and the beginning sort of helped create Damaged to be honest. So okay back to what I was saying, when I started the Rebirth series I told myself if i was going to publish this first then I wouldn’t stop until it was it was finished – the whole series. I know how much it sucks waiting for a new book in a series, and even worse when the author seems to be starting new projects all over the place and seems to have forgotten this series YOU have fallen in love with and dying for the next one. So trust me I understand. And I broke my promise to myself, and I am going to release Untitled after Stolen. But my HOPE is that there will be no more interruptions for the Rebirth Series after this one.

So that means Hunter’s novella and the companion piece is something I will be working on as I write the rest of the Rebirth Series or AFTER. But in the end its what the muse wants I suppose.

I see you falling asleep on me!! sorry!!! I know I talk a lot and get distracted easily.

So other than the ideas floating in my head which I am not ready to share about that is what I have planned for the rest of this year, and the next year. Really it all comes down to how much time I get to write, how much $$$ I have to spend on covers, formatting, editors, etc, and my character’s keeping up telling me their stories.

Feel free to friend me on facebook if you ever want to keep way up to date, I sometimes post on there word counts or frustrations, but please note it is my personal page as well, so I might post stuff you might not give two shits about. Also please be respectful of me, don’t just add me to get me to like your page or have me donation to something and never talk to me again. I do like talking to people, its how I met my new PA Jennifer.

But I also work 4-5 jobs soooo I am not always around either.

My UtopYA Experience Blog Tour

So I entered the indie world almost two years ago, probably a little more but I was really immersed when I started my review blog: The Violet Hour Book Reviews, my friend who started the blog with me, and I already had a trip planned for Chicago the same week UtopYA was happening the year before. And by the time it actually came around, I was green with envy and jealousy. I wanted to go so bad!! So after our fun trip, I was resolved to go to UtopYA the next year. At this point I was fully and only a blogger. I have written stories since I was in fifth grade, and I had dreams of becoming an author, was I sure it was ever going to happen? Hell no. But when my friends encouraged me last summer, I did it.

So ontop of my new found courage, an amazing author by the name of Carlyle Labuschagne, was giving away a spotlight spot at her table at UtopYA, I was crazy enough to try it! And to my surprise, which I never win stuff, I won! So began my journey to UtopYA for the first time not only as a reader going to experience the joys of it, but as a newbie author, with all the fears in the world.

   

So if I wasn’t already nervous as hell to finally meet some of the authors i had been stalking online, I was to be there, representing my own work?!

So after many emails between Carlyle and I, not to mention my favorite girls ever. I started to calm…a bit…

 

Okay so I didn’t. And that right there was my first mistake. I am such a weirdo when I meet new people – I know, I know everyone says that. But as my friend who so accurately pointed out to me once, and this what he said, “Becca when I first met you, you were a totally different person than you are now.” I asked what he meant by that, he said that I was louder, funnier, bolder. And I realized how quiet I do become when meeting new people. I retreat backwards and let other people take over the show. I warned, and warned and warned my girls who I had been talking to for over a year now, not to let me become that person. I think for the most part I did okay.

Honestly? I wish I had done better. I wish while I didn’t want to be aggressive with my love like so:

But I wish I had been more open to meeting new people. I wish I hadn’t been so scared. Because I realized something a little too late, these were my people. These were the people who understood my obsessions with fictional characters, with words that while alone might not mean much, strung together they made these amazing stories. And I will stick to what I told everyone I told that I was going to UtopYA. I was about to meet all the people I saw as superstars

I got to meet Stacey Marie Brown, which my friends had to force me to go over to her table because i was so nervous!!

My biggest take away from my first year experience as a person going, not an author, but just as a reader to another reader: Don’t be afraid.

  

I can almost guarantee the women and men you meet at UtopYA whether they be authors, bloggers, or readers, they will embrace you with open arms. Oh also, it may seem overwhelming at first, but I mean really take your time, don’t be afraid, and totally make sure you don’t get so drunk you run around in the hotel lobby telling people you are the Tardis, while wearing your Tardis blanket….not that…that happened to me or anything.

 

Now onto my experiences as an author

So if I wasn’t terrified enough to be going to UtopYA now I had go to representing myself as an author, and my work. My one book was out, my second was due very soon afterwards (its out now ;))

A lot of my advice would have to the same above:

A) Don’t be afraid

Own who you are, because if there is any group of people who are willing to accept you as you, its the craziness that is found at this Con.

b) Take Chances
Other authors (most other authors) are not going to shun you, or attack you. IF anything they probably are the one person that understands you better than you 😉

C) Respect and attack your readers (with love) + bloggers
They are the ones who make your world go round, they are the ones who support you, and your work. They deserve your respect and time. Honestly I think I fangirled over more readers who KNEW who I was then I did over authors…. okay it was about the same amount.

D) Don’t leave disappointed.

Confession time!!! I was yeah slightly disappointed when I left, I was expecting a million people to stop by Carlyle’s and I table, I wasn’t supposed to be there, and yet I was sooo hoping that I would have a million people asking me about my books. It just wasn’t how it happened. Granted I should have put myself out there more. But in the end, a couple months away from it, I realized I shouldn’t have been disappointed in the amount of people who didn’t stop at our table (well many stopped for Carlyle but how could you not? She was wonderful!!!) but I made so many new friends, I got more books than I was expecting, so many new reads!!! And I learned so much. This Con should never be thought as a money making trip, but a networking, friend-building, and just wonderful experience to be surrounded by the most amazing people in the world.

 

My biggest take away from UtopYA was this: Have fun, make new friends, and never be afraid to embrace the weird, cause I can assure you someone else is being weirder than you here 😉

 

 

Thanks for stopping by ^.^ I hope you all can make it to UtopYA next year. And please come visit me at my half-table in the lobby on Thursday ❤
Or I might just attack you anyways you never know. So watch out for any tackle hugs that may occur with or without your consent
