I’m feeling kinda’ in between these days.
My debut novel, Wish You Were Here, has been out for a month.
My second novel, Catch a Falling Star, has been with my editors for a month.
Yay! (No, really … Yay! I love editors. I am one, you know.)
And now, it’s time to move on to the next story.
I’m a inspirational contemporary romance writer — it’s what I do: write stories.
But my heart and mind are still full of Allison and Daniel (the heroine and hero of WYWH). And now the characters of Catch a Falling Star have squeezed their way into my thoughts. I’ve fallen in love with them too.
Writing another novel means more characters.
A few of them are already lurking around the corners of my mind, waving their hands as if to say, “Hey! What about me? You gonna tell my story yet?”
Yes, imaginary people do this.
And novelists listen to them.
I’ve jotted down notes and story-lines and potential names and locations. The barest beginnings of what’s next for me.
There’s another story waiting to be written … and I’m eager to find out which one it will be.
