An update on my life – assuming you’re interested…

FinallyLove_Volume1There’s been a flurry of activities in my life these days. On the writing front, I’m completely done with Finally, Love! – Michael & Chloe’s Story Vol. 1. I don’t think any of you will be able to guess how this one ends. Original release date is 4/28/2015, but since it’s done so early, I’m considering releasing the story earlier. I’d release it today, but the problem lies with those who purchase vs. those who don’t. I’d like to keep everyone on a relatively similar pace. The blogs in Vol. 1 are written up to June 18 and releasing today gives it too much of a gap. BUT, I am also eager to give you what I have. I dunno! Those of you who pre-ordered Vol. 1 through iBooks and those of you who will purchase via Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords can comment sweet-nothings to me and try and convince me to release it earlier. OR!!! If you all will purchase a copy of the book, I can release the book today and start Vol. 2 next week. 😉

Perfect Harmony finally received its own Word doc. today. I’ve written all of 870 words, which might make up about 3-4 pages on your e-reader. I can tell you the title of the first chapter is “Will You Marry Me” ~Jason Derulo and Ben starts the unfolding with a flashback to when he PROPOSED to Marni before she left for college! Whelp. Now you know all the deets to the 870 words. 🙂 I told my FB followers earlier today that while writing, I actually forgot Noah’s name. I had to open up Unfinished Melody to look up his section in order to “recover” his name. I felt like a mother who couldn’t remember her third child’s name. Shame! Shame! Shame!

Speaking of child, we had a bit of a scare with our daughter two days before spring break. She had been complaining of a headache and woke up early one morning crying because of the pain. I took her to ER and it turned out she was severely anemic. It was to a point where they considered doing a blood transfusion. After taking panels and panels of tests, the doctors still don’t quite understand what’s wrong with her. She’s perfectly healthy, pitches in club softball, and does well in school. Everything points to healthy, but her blood/iron level is very low. We’ve started iron supplements and will go back to testing again in a month. We are praying that her iron level will go up and all will be resolved. On a humorous note, because of her medical scare, we had to cancel our trip to Cabo San Lucas. Since that decision was made, we’ve lovingly started calling her, “The Grinch Who Stole Cabo.”

Back to books – I’ve also written a little of the Reid surprise story. What I can tell you about this book is that there will be more than one speaker. In fact, there will be at least one representative from each couple. You want to know who opens the story? Of course you do! It’s Harry Bennington!!! Anyhoo, I can’t tell you any more than that. This one will be a sweet surprise.

As if my head isn’t confused enough, there’s another story calling out to me. It popped into my head one morning and I’ve been having a good time writing this one. That’s why I got a late start on Perfect Harmony. This one is darker than my usual creations. I’ll see if I can keep it up with all the other books I’ve committed to for 2015.

I think I’ve said enough! Since you made it all the way down here, I’ll add a teaser to thank you for listening.

Chloe: Avoiding Friends
Jake and Emily didn’t know how to respond to my off comment. In so many words, I told them everything! Essentially, these people were no different from strangers and I told them what happened with Brendan and Michael yesterday. If that wasn’t bad enough, I gave them the abridged version of my “relationship” with Michael since birth, and my “relationship” with Brendan since the day after Michael left me at Heathrow for Laney Reid.

When I was done, Jake handed me his latte. “I think you need this more than I do.”

(YAY! Everyone’s favorite Reid couple make their appearance. Bye for now.)

    I hope that your daughter is on the road to recovery. I lost a very special friend this last weekend, so things are not so hot at the moment. Anyway, . I would love to read Chloe and Michael’s story sooner rather than later. I love everything that you write and to date have bought all of your books.

  3. Ellen Christensen says:

    I would buy the book anytime you publish. Sooner rather than later is preferable. So, whenever you are ready,let us know. I’m right there, Nook in hand.

    On your daughter’s health,.. sending good thoughts to you and her. I went through something similar with my daughter when she was young so I can honestly say I know how you feel. Please know things will get better. They found out what was wrong and it is fixable.

    Sorry to hear what you are going thru with your daughter my thoughts and prayers are with you. I would love an early release of Michael and Chloe’s story. Take care of you and your daughter

  8. Laurie says:

    Thank you for the update. I’m sorry to hear about your daughter. It’s hard going through health issues ourselves but I find it harder seeing our children go through it. I hope and pray that all turns out ok. <3 as for the early release, I am SO for it. That's because I preordered it =) I honestly didn't read the blog from the beginning but the other week I had time and read it all in one sitting. Now, I am eager and constantly checking my email before bed to see if the blog is posted, lol. I hope you decide to release it early!
    PS. Thank you for the teaser. That little nibble will tide me over until the next entry OR the early release, whichever comes first

  9. Kim says:

    Hope your daughter is on the mend. Keep teasing her about Cabo! I have read everything you’ve written and will continue to. Please release Michael & Chloe early! And forget about what’s his name from unfinished melody…….

  10. rb says:

    Hope all is well on the home front with your daughter. Thoughts and prayers.

    Secondly my pitch and plea is for an early release pleaseeeeeee and thank you.

  11. AmandaD says:

    I would read anything that you write!!! You are my top three favorite authors…you being the top of course! I vote for a early release.:)

    Hope your daughter feeling better and stay feeling better! Sending good thoughts your way!

  12. Rahab says:

    Thanks for the updates. Hope your daughter feels better. Looking forward to reading all the books in the works and please release Michael and Chloe’s book.

  13. Karen Hrdlicka says:

    Sorry to hear about the scare with your daughter, anemia can be awful. I have a close friend that has issues. Here’s hoping they get her squared away. On the book front, of course earlier is always better, jus saying. 🙂

  14. Chelse H. says:

    I love our updates and surprisingly love Michael and Chole’s stories . I would love to sit down and read it all together .! Shame on those who only read the blog version ! Hope all will continue to be well in your life / family !

  15. Bonnie says:

    You sure are a busy bee!! Il keep your daughter in my thoughts and prayers.. I just don’t know how you keep all these books in your head straight and still stay somewhat sane!! But, you are DW Cee and you ROCK!!! I’ll start calling you SuperWoman… 😉

  16. Cindy Lam says:

    Praying for your daughter’s health and quick recovery, so glad she’s improving and you’re able to find & give laughter to her. Maybe you could have Max take a look at her, or page Jake Reid to call in some favors?!? 🙂 I’m sure there should be a fellow Reid-er Fan at your hospital who will help look out for your daughter. Hope they find out what contributed to the drastic drop in iron. Was she always Anemic? Would a nice serving of In-n-out Double-double boost her iron level? J/k.

    Secondly, I would love to buy the ebook for Michael and Chloe part 1, ASAP! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, with cherry on top? Difficult to wait to gobble up the goodness. Besides, it’s one less “to do” thing for you to work on, so that you can purge all the creative stories onto all the other pending projects.

    ….was that persuasive enough? 🙂 Have a great week!

      Thank you, Cindy for your prayer! We never knew our little girl was anemic, but she must have been. She showed absolutely no signs of anemia! She’s hyper all the time and active in everything. All the doctors we’ve seen (her pediatrician, included) are baffled. She’s a big meat and veggie eater and lucky her, she can’t keep weight on. She eats like nobody’s business but is super thin with lean muscle. Oh, to be twelve again. Though, in all honesty, I was always chubby. 🙂

      I am seriously considering releasing super early. I love this story and can’t wait to share it with you.

    I’m game to buy today lol!!! I’m super excited for all the new stuff girly!!!
