Today marks a milestone: I will turn in the very last book in my first contracted series, to my editor. This is the end of a beginning that has opened up a huge, gaping hole.
Why? Because that book was also my very last contracted book, period. I have no more. Nothing else. Nada. Zip.
It makes me feel like this:
Yeah, it feels strange. Like, I have no deadlines ahead of me (except for editing this beast I just turned in).Of course, I keep pondering that maybe...just maybe...I'll never have another contract. O_O. No one will want me. OMG, whatifIneverwriteanotherbookthatanyonewantstobuy?
There is a nice, fluffy sense of freedom associated with fulfilling all the contracts. My writing platform is wide open. I can write whatever I want! I canwriteallthethings!
In the meantime, I'll be over here with a chocolate cake. And some Doritos. And wine. Lots of wine. And cake. Did I mention...
Stress eating is a thing. You should (n't) try it sometime.
In the meantime, look for my next two releases: THE FIREFIGHTER'S APPEAL comes out August 1st, 2014, and PAINT RIVER RANCH #3, comes out in November, 2014. After that...
I'll have to get back to you. :)
