Mark Your Calendars!

If you’ve been waiting for news on Checkmate… My goal is to have it ready the week of August 27th!

If you’ve been with me for long, you know that my writing process is usually pretty slow in the middle. I might start a book like gangbusters, but sometimes getting 10K, then 20K, then 30K… can take FOREVER.  Then I finish the last HALF of the book in like a week.

That’s what I’m hoping to do this week. Yes, I’m at the halfway mark, but I’m still announcing that I want to release on August 27th or within a few days of that (for sure by the end of the month if at all humanly possible). I feel the tides shifting inside me. Now. It’s time. The words are there. The parts of the book I had to feel my way through are written.

I have some “fun” scenes to write that I already know. Then the big showdown. The End. Easy, peasy, right?

Of course, it’s not really that easy and I’m sure there will be a few more hiccups along the way, but I’m riding the wave now and picking up speed. I may crash and burn on the other side, but it’ll be one hell of a ride.

To avoid chaos this time, I’m going to set a very brief pre-order period once I have the final book back from my editors. That way there’s no mistakes with the incomplete file going out (because it’ll be THE file) and everyone will know when the book will drop. Again, it may not be exactly the 27th depending on timing, but it should be that week.

Then…. What’s next? Well, I’m not going to tell you that, yet, because I want it to be a surprise.

  1. I can’t wait! I’ve seriously have money saved on Amazon just waiting to come out and get it and I won’t buy anything else until I have this book. I have been following all you post especially in your Joely Truine’s page. Thank you so much for your books no matter how many times I read them on my Kindle it still feels like the first time reading them even if my husband doesn’t get it lol.

    1. You’re very welcome – and thank you for letting me know that you’re enjoying them! I’m still working on Checkmate – it’s the biggest one yet!

  2. I’m so excited, once it comes out I have to get them all in paperback, I’m the kind of book crazy that likes my favorite authors in hard and soft back. So excited for the ending, I can’t wait to see what directions the series goes afterwards. Shara and her men are definitely amongst my all time favorites!

    1. Thank you! So glad you’re enjoying them!

  3. Where is the book? Is it coming out soon or next august, i cant wait!

    1. Checkmate went live overnight!

  4. I don’t think your should give dates for your new releases unless your sure. Checking all the time leaves some feeling aggrivated . That being said, I’m really excited for Checkmate and a little sad it’s ending.

    1. I’m sorry for your frustration. I do the best I can to keep everyone informed. Checkmate went live overnight.

  5. Any Updates on Checkmate? I know writing is a bit of a stop-start process sometimes but I honestly, can’t wait for the finale, it’s such a killer storyline and I love the characters, especially Daire. I guess good works take more time, which is only another reason why I’m looking forward to QTQ so much!
