First off, to everyone who took the time to comment on my last post or send me an email overflowing with support, suggestions, and well-wishes... Thank you!!! Your kindness and understanding means more to me than you could ever know, and your words of encouragement helped get me through a really tough time. You guys are amazing. ♥
Lately I've received a massive number of emails, comments, and questions on social media that all included the same question: "When is book three coming out??"
And I really, really wish I had an exact answer for you.
Here's the situation—I'm working on the novel every day, but progress is slow going. I'd love to throw out another estimated publication date, but after having the last two predictions come and go without being met, I'd rather not tempt fate again.
I will say this, though... I am determined to finish this book and to make it the absolute best that it can be. It's been a total nightmare to write (let's just say that I took on a challenge that I wasn't quite prepared for, and that it's slowed my progress immensely), but I love these characters and I'm committed to telling their story. I will finish what I started, but complications and distractions in my personal and professional life have made it difficult to finish the project as quickly as I'd hoped.
Thankfully, I have an absolutely amazing editor who is helping me whip this novel into shape, and—with any luck—my next update to the blog will include an official announcement about the release.
In the meantime I want to thank you guys again for your understanding and support!
