AWAKEN update…

For those who are waiting on AWAKEN (Brightest Kind of Darkness, Book 5 – the final book) news…I’d hoped for an August** release, but September is more realistic. Each time I have moved, it has thrown me off my writing schedule, but this move from France back to the US has taken FAR, FAR more of my time away from writing than I anticipated. I thought the US part would be so much easier, but too many moving parts, a new town, new house, and life changes are all happening at once. :/

The good news is I am writing every day and I have no plans to move ever again (if I can help it! PLEASE, NO MORE MOVES!). I want to give you all the best book I can, and AWAKEN is the only story I’m working on until it’s finished. I will update as I get closer.

Yes, this means that BLACK PLATINUM will get pushed back a little bit. I’ll be updating the preorder for it on iBooks soon once I see where I am with timing on AWAKEN.

I apologize to you all for my scheduling adjustment, but I am human and if I push to write at lightning speed, the stories won’t be as good as they can be. I love my readers and am doing my best to make you happy while also not stressing myself to the point of sheer exhaustion. I’m so appreciative that you all are excited about AWAKEN’s release and are passionate about Ethan and Nara. AWAKEN is coming and BLACK PLATINUM with Sebastian and Talia will be right behind it. 🙂

** FYI to authors…if you just put the month and leave the “day” blank in the in the date field on Goodreads with the intention to fill it in later, people will assume the release date is the first of the month. Argh! Lesson learned.
