Friends of mine just found out that their 7-yr-old daughter has Leukemia. She is currently at Children’s Hospital awaiting the beginning of a two year treatment plan. This strikes close to home for me on multiple levels. I have children close to Addy’s age, and I can’t even imagine either one of them having to go through something like this. It breaks my heart, and my thoughts and prayers are with this amazing family.
A fund has been created for Addy, to help ease the burden of her medical expenses. To help support Addy and her family, I’m giving away a signed set of the THOUGHTLESS trilogy and an advanced copy of THOUGHTFUL (when available). A donation is required to enter the giveaway, but any amount is acceptable. Please consider donating, but if you can’t, prayers are also welcome. Thank you!!

Football is HUGE in Seattle right now, and everyone is ready for Superbowl Sunday. Blue and green is everywhere you look!!! And for the first time in a long time, I may actually watch the game and not just the commercials.
Since Thoughtless is based in Seattle, and the D-Bags are playing the halftime show (at Pete’s, of course), the guys have insisted that I celebrate the team’s success by giving away a signed copy of Thoughtless. I’m not one to argue with such an entertaining group of boys, so I said sure, why not!

I haven’t done a “What are you working on?” update in a while. Why? Because I wasn’t sure if the story I was working on would ever see the light of day. Now that I am over halfway through writing it though, I am 99.9% sure I’m going to publish it.
So, what have I been working on? Kellan’s point of view of Thoughtless. Yes, I’m going to give you the story through his eyes, and let me tell you, it’s not always easy experiencing it through Kellan’s POV. I’ve cried more than once. It has been a lot of fun though, and I hope that you enjoy the companion piece to Thoughtless, which I have tentatively titled Thoughtful.
I’m currently writing the last third of the book, and I don’t have a street date for you yet. I also can’t predict when it might be available, since several different people will be involved with the process of choosing a release date: editors, publishers, cover designers, formatters, and more! Know that it’s coming though, and soon you’ll have more Kellan!
In other news…
I’m also finishing up publishing the Conversion series. I’ve begun the process of editing book three, and it is scheduled to release April 9th, 2014. You can pre-order it HERE.
Once Kellan’s POV is complete, I’ll be working on a prequel with him. It will be a shorter novella, focusing on how the D-Bags came together. I may also play around with a Griffin/Anna novella, since those two crack me up.
After that, I’ll be heading back to the Conversion universe, to finish up the Next Generation trilogy. Book two is already finished (and it is my favorite so far!), and I’m a quarter of the way through book three. My goal is to publish the entire Next Gen trilogy in 2015.
As for my other older novels, It’s All Relative and Not a Chance, I do plan on cleaning those up and publishing them, I’m just not sure when. The timeline for their publication depends on Kellan’s POV and the prequel. And for all you Not a Chance fans, yes, I will be writing a sequel to that book someday, and I plan on releasing book one and book two back to back if not simultaneously.
Whew! So that’s what I’ll be working on for the next couple of years. Which project are you the most excited for?
