Okay, well, 2020 was an interesting year. Soon after the release of my second novel, Not Dressed, there was a global pandemic, and many of us went in lockdown. While this sounds like prime opportunity to do a lot of writing, in reality, it took me a long time to get “in the zone.”
Eventually, I did get in the zone and started writing my third novel. In fact, after a while of starting that, I came up with the idea for my fourth novel and ended up working on both novels at the same time. I finished the first draft of Not Awkward several weeks ago, and it is currently going through beta reading and revisions. In June/July it will go through copyediting, and it will finally be introduced to the world on August 24.

While that’s quite a long time away, that time is necessary to get the feedback I need from my trusted beta-readers and to get the book properly copyedited.
In the meantime, I’ve taken a pause from working on book 4, in order to give Not Awkward the attention it needs. But, book 4 is already at 67,000+ words, so I suspect by the time I’m ready to get back into it the wait between it and Not Awkward will be much shorter than the wait between my previous novels.
