Everything had been going swimmingly, almost all three books complete, and then I made the dreaded decision to announce release dates and ...OY... the writing has come to a screeching halt. I don't know why that always happens. I see on my dashboard people Googling for the new books, I get nervous and suddenly can't write. And yes, you naughty darlings, I know which books you're looking for. And don't worry my historical readers; I know you're looking for Love me Forever and I am in the process of finishing that book, too.
I guess the fear and sudden inability to put the story on paper is because we've all gone so far together the past year and I don't want to disappoint any of you continuing in my Parker family Saga. I would never have gotten through so many books so quickly without you, and you have made this journey so amazing for me. I think the highlight has been when a reader sends a note about the little folksy things Jack Parker say because it's wonderful to know they've touched someone. Especially since each little axiom from Jack is really a message from me for my daughters.
So as I try to crank out the last 15K words of each book, I'm working really hard not to disappoint any of you. But Alan will be Alan. And the apple doesn't seem to fall far from the tree. Kaley is definitely determined to be Kaley. Neither of them seem intent to listen to me, but I don't think the story would work any other way. Sometimes you've just got to throw the rules out the window and let it be.
As ever I wish you Peace.
