Until the release of Live that is. (Remember, it’s December 9!) The final book in my Kitsune series. It’s been a long time coming and I know you’re all impatient for it to get here, me too!
Day after tomorrow will mark four weeks since I got that heart-rending call. Nearly a month since I found out that my sister-in-law had left this world and it was up to me to notify my husband (her brother) and her father. In a lot of ways, I’ve been numb since then.
Strong emotion has always been difficult for me to express and this has been no exception. It didn’t help that my grandfather passed away in March and since I don’t live close to him, it’s been easier for me to pretend (at least in my heart) that it didn’t happen.
I’ll admit, when my grandmother passed away it took me more than six months to deal with it, and I was used to seeing her every day. Granted, I was thirteen at the time, but that’s kind of typical for me. I’ve dealt with my share of loss. This he was my fourth grandparent to go and I lost a step-sister when I was 18, but I don’t handle it like most people. I probably cry less than most men. In sixteen years of marriage my husband can probably count on one hand the number of times he’s seen me cry. I’m not kidding. I just don’t do it, or I don’t let anyone see it when it happens. I’m much more likely to vent my emotions by yelling, screaming or hitting something (not someone, something). It’s just me. I know it’s odd. I know it’s not normal, but it’s me.
What do I mean my heart-blind? I mean I’ve been in this locked down place where I couldn’t feel much emotion, good or bad. This made writing a romance very difficult, especially the one that I’m working on.
Without giving too much away, I can say it’s not an easy story. When I started it, I had in mind a quick, fun read, but Steve and Jade have slowly revealed to me that their stories aren’t either quick or fun. Now that I’m starting to feel emotions again rather than just surviving, they’ve started talking to me again. The story is already longer than I had intended for it to be, and I don’t see the end any time soon. They are telling me bits of what will happen in the immediate future and bits that will happen a little further off… I know how it will end, but the bits in between are what’s the most fun to find out. This current story is called Jade’s Peace (it’s a sequel to Escape) and you can find the first chapter at the end of Robin’s Nest. Eventually it will make it to the website, but that won’t be until I have a release date.
And for those of you asking me if there’s another book in the Kitsune series. Yyes, there is at least one more book in Nickie’s story. I’m not yet sure if there’s more than that, but there is at least one more book.
Book pages everywhere should be updated soon, that means anywhere from 12 hrs to a couple of weeks, depending on each server.
Signed copies are $9 each, plus shipping
They came in late last week.
I’m still jumping for joy! The other half watched me dance around the house hugging them, he thought I had lost my mind. He just doesn’t understand.
Either way, you can get both Change and Fight in paperback too! They’re both available through Amazon and Createspace (I’m working on getting them out to a wider audience but it’s going to mean raising the price, and I’m not ready to do that.) The links to purchase are on each books page, on the right. –>
If you want signed copies, use the contact me link on the About Melissa page and we’ll work something out.
After all the time, the writing, rewriting, the editing and cover design, it’s finally here! Today is the day, FIGHT, the second book of the Kitsune, is available!! It’s not everywhere yet, but it will be soon. Purchase links can be found on FIGHT’s page, it will be updated with new links as soon as it goes live on each site.
I’ve worked hard over the last few weeks to get to tomorrow. And now that it’s so close, I just want to be able to focus on something else. FIGHT will be released tomorrow. And while I hope you wall will like it, there’s nothing I can do to about that now.
FIGHT is done. I’ve released it out into the world for others to enjoy and I’ve moved on. I know, it sounds callous, but if I don’t move on, how will anyone find out what happens next? I’m already hip deep in the next book in the series. I’ve been working on getting Nickie to tell me what happened next. We were going great until the copy edits came back for FIGHT. Now I have to get back in the mindset and actually hear her talking to me again.
In the mean time, I’ve been playing with another concept. We’ll see if it goes anywhere before I tell you too much about it, but I will tell you that so far, I think it’s a pretty good one.
