I know it's been a while since I've stopped in. Things have been extremely busy. There are a lot of things that we must discuss, so let's get down to business.
I have been away for a while because I have been doing a lot of freelance work to just help out with financial stuffs for my kiddos! :-) But I am slipping back into the saddle and boy does it feel good.
First things first. The trip to Maine, while it wasn't what I was lead to believe it would be, nor was it what I had expected, I did manage to make the best of a crappy weekend. I got to spend time with some of my best friends in the whole world. I got to spend time with my partner in crime and my best friend Amelia Cole. While I talk to her most every day, I only get to see her once a year. Why is this? Well I live smack in the middle of the US of A and she, well. . . lives on the East Coast. So any time I get a chance to see her I am all over it. Oh and her husband too, I kinda like him too! :)
I made the trip with my brother and my other best friend. It was a long drive, both ways. We covered nearly every North East State with the exception of Vermont. It was amazing. While I had been to the Atlantic ocean before they had not. That alone was a great experience.
The event itself, well I really don't want to get into details because well. . . just don't. I will say this, though. I met some freaking AMAZING PEOPLE. April Wood (a freaking hilarious woman) had the sad misfortune of having a table directly across from us. By the end of Saturday, I was fairly certain we were going to get kicked out for being loud and obnoxious. She was a hoot! OH, and I failed to mention she is a FREAKING AWESOME author! I'm telling ya folks, run out and get her stuff. If you like sexy vampires with killing skills and all kinds of hot, slap your momma, kinds of steam, then you most definitely will not be disappointed. I will post a link to her page at the end of this.
Met several other amazing people both at the event and at my favorite PUB.
Moving on, I have been working on my newest series. I will be dipping my toes into the Young Adult world and giving that a little spin. I'm hoping it is as succesful as The Chosen Chronicles has been. I will be posting a sneak peek of that a little bit later, be sure to come back and check it out.
Speaking of The Chosen gang. The series has been pulled from the market for the time being. Why? Well, my beloved publishing house has decided to close their doors! There is no ill will there, I am still and will still remain friends with the owner, but after our house suffered a devastating loss of one of our beloved brothers, it was just too much! Don't be sad thought, The Chosen Chronicles will be back up and better than ever before you know it. They are undergoing an overhaul, as well as one of the books getting an awesome face lift.
There is some exciting news looming on the horizon of 2015 but as of right now, I can't talk much about it! It's going to be a wicked good thing though. Lots of excitement. 2015 holds a lot of promise for me.
If I can get my rump in gear I am hoping to have this new series completely released by the end of next year. That's right at least three NEW books. That isn't the only project I have going on either. I am in the beginning stages of another YA series! This one, well, this one I will be slipping back into the Angels and demons side of things, with hopes of bringing you something you've never seen before.
Okay. I'm going to be doing some stuff later on, trying to pick traffic back up on this bad boy. Going to be doing a BOOKS/AUTHORS I love. I'm going to try to get Mel in on this considering she is a rabid (and I DO MEAN RABID) book fan. Can actually shed more light on this than I can. So keep
Checking back... We're going to be kicking off some cool new stuff... Favorite television shows... Actors... writing... this is going to be a little bit of everything!!! :-)
So go check out my girl April Wood and tell her Christine James sent ya over! Show her some mad love too guys, because she is a Vet! ;)
OH AND BTW... I DO HAVE some copies of all 4 of my books available. For purchase. They are limited editions and I have them right her beside me! If you're interested in getting an autographed copy plus a cool, hand crafted book mark by Mel, email me at:
Peace out Lovelies,
I am also going to using this as the first blog post, because we are starting all over again! Clean slate and all! :) If you have a question about a previous blog shoot me a message or leave a comment below. We will get it figured out!
