Plans

It is time to get back into the swing of things! After the release of Rogue I took an entire week to clean and organize my house, and I'm still not done. We've been here for 4 years and haven't purged once, so we are gearing up for a big garage sale.

Okay, enough of the boring personal information.

So what are my future book plans?

To start, I completed my first draft of the "adult" romance I'm releasing by June 1st.

When I say adult, I do not mean smut. I'll put that out there clearly. I say adult because the characters are mid-twenties and there are sexual themes and mild language. Since Exceptional is a YA book, I want to make sure I clear the air there so readers do not go into my story expecting a YA romance.

The title is Forget Me, and I'm working on a cover.

As for the Exceptional series, the third book will be called Ordinary. I have the outline DONE and I've already started the first draft. When I finished Rogue, the progression into the third and final book felt easy so my ideas are flowing quickly. The other day I sat down and wrote 10,000 words. To give you an idea, an average YA adult novel is 70-100K words. My goal for a release is end of summer, beginning of fall... and I am sticking with that! I was LOVE to see AUGUST in front of the release date. :)

I think the layout of the third book will throw you for a loop, but it will be good. I promise.

THANK YOU for everyone who has read Rogue and is giving it rave reviews. The best way to get the news out about the Exceptional series is to tell your friends, review it on Amazon and Goodreads, and share it on FB. You are all so amazing!
