This is something of a confession. The last few months have been a bit of a mess for me. Visa stuff and family stuff and medical stuff, none of it very serious but all of it distracting, and my brain’s been turned to mush. I haven’t written much of anything since I finished Balls Up. I’ve got the sequel, Bottoms Up, all plotted out, but I’ve only got 15k written and it’s become increasingly clear in the past weeks that it isn’t right. There’s something missing and I can’t put my finger on what, but right now the book is sub-par. I’ve tried powering through but until I know what the problem is, I can’t fix it. So I’ve decided to pull up my big girl pants and made the difficult decision to shelve the book for the time being.
Instead, I’m turning my attention to a couple of characters who are speaking to me: Ryan and Sameer. I’m plotting a prequel to the Blowing It series right now, with them at the helm. This will be my first time writing full-on contemporary BDSM, so it’s going to be an interesting challenge, and I hope I can do it justice. (I’d better, or there will be a queue to lynch me, with AJ at the head!)
As of now, the book is untitled, but I’m hoping all that will change in the next couple of months. I’m aiming to release in November, but I’ll be keeping the blog updated with progress so I should have more information soon.
I’d like to thank everyone who’s following the series and apologise to anyone I’ve disappointed with this announcement, but I promise there will be a third Owen and Magnus book. Their story isn’t done yet, it’s just percolating a little longer than anticipated.
For now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a whole plethora of research to do….
