No writer wants to delay the release of a novel, least of all me. I spent a year writing Sometimes A Monster and I’m so excited to share the end of Grape’s story, but life sometimes gets in the way. What’s kept me from performing the edits necessary to get the book into the world? It’s called New York.
My husband got an amazing job offer in Manhattan. We’ve spent the past six weeks packing, moving, finding a place to live, putting our house on the market, and taking all the steps necessary to start a new life in a new state. During that time, I also strained my back, had a tendonitis flare up and hurt my calf muscle. So, it’s been pretty exciting.
But, there’s good news. We’re in our new apartment, we’re almost fully unpacked, I’m 70% healed from my injuries and Sometimes A Monster has been edited! The release will happen in August, once we finalize the cover and set up a few more details. Exact date to come soon.
I’m so excited to be almost completely done with the move and back to writing. Besides the book release, I have a new novel in process, a few short stories I’m working on, a new screenplay, a new play and tons of research to do for future projects. We’re settling into NYC which means that you can expect more stories soon!
