I just wanted to touch base with everyone - a central place with a little more freedom than private messages and Facebook walls. I guess by now we all know it's December and there's still no clear release date for Testing Fate ...
What does that mean?
It means I really don't like being vague. Whenever I'm asked, my standard answer has become "I don't know yet" or "I'm waiting for the go ahead from my editor" or my favorite ... "It's coming soon." I want you all to know that it bothers me to say that - I want nothing more than to say "It's going to be released such and such ... SQUEE!" Unfortunately, life doesn't always work that way no matter how much I ask it sweetly. Believe me, I've tried.
When I first announced the December date, it was with a hopeful heart. I anticipated no hiccups with nothing but smooooooth sailing. *chuckles* Hands up anyone whose life ever goes EXACTLY the way we want it to *looks around* Me neither.
I recently changed editors. It was necessary and what it means is not only is the book subject to my life and priorities, but also hers. What I also didn't take into account was other editing obligations and Christmas. Family always takes precedence ... even in front of Mason, Darcy, and Devlin *chuckles* Thankfully they're not as ornery as Quinn. He wouldn't care and demand I cater to him. Sexy jerk!
So do I have a release date yet? No.
What do I have? Three very strong FACTS
Fact #1 - Testing Fate will be BY FAR the best book in the series to date.
Fact #2 - I have one of the best editors I've ever worked with helping me polish the book. I love having that kind of confidence and Testing Fate with SPARKLE.
Fact #3 - Waiting just a little longer will be a VERY distant memory once you get a copy. A lot happens in the book - things you've been waiting for ... and some that you'll never see coming.
I love you all so much. Thank you for all the support you've not only given me but the series. You've embraced the Mystic Wolves - claimed the characters for your own and it means so much! I promise in the meantime to share teasers, torture you all a little less, and find fun ways to celebrate the series!
Happy swooning everyone!!
