Over the weekend I typed those two little words that are oh so bittersweet to an author, "The End". As some of you may know, this book is book 2 of When The Chip Are Down (Carrie's story). No, I didn't write it at warp speed, I had it about 3/4 of the way done when I put it aside to write Easy Silence. I actually contemplated not even writing and releasing the next two books of this series because I wasn't sure if the demand was there based on my sales from When The Chips Are Down. After thinking about it long and hard, I realize that I needed to write Carrie & Gia's story regardless if ten people read it or ten thousand people read it. They both have a story that needs to be told...so I'm gonna tell it! So, once Easy Silence was written, I went back in, made some changes, and added the ending and voila - Carrie and Jason's Story was created!
I'm now moving on and starting Gia's story.....can you guess who the hero is going to be in this one?
I will be releasing both books together, which means you will have to wait a little longer than originally planned, but I feel this makes the most sense, being that Gia's book is going to pick up right were Carrie's ends. I promise this will all be worth the wait! So, with that being said.....I'm looking for a release date of sometime in January....I'm going to shoot for December, but I think January is much a safer bet!
I want to thank those of you that have been waiting for these books for being so patient and especially the girls in my little book group (you know who you are) who were so supportive when I told them back in March that I had an idea for a total ugly cry book that needed to be written. If it weren't for these girls telling me to take a break from Carrie and write the story that was speaking to me - Samantha & Jaxson may not have been created and a lot less tears would have been shed!
So, for those of you that have read When The Chips Are Down as well as Easy Silence, I hope the break I took to create Samantha & Jaxson was worth the wait!
I promise that Carrie's & Gia's books will bring you nothing but smiles and plenty of laughs!
