2022 has beena bit of a whirlwind--in writing and in other parts of my life too.
Once again I had three books scheduled to release ... and they all did! Destination: Romance came out in June, starting off my three-book Roadtrip Romance series. In September, I added another novella collection called Love in Any Season. And this month, my second Roadtrip Romance, Roadtrip for Two hit the market. Whew! Even though they were all several months apart, it still added up to be a lot. But in a good way.
This gives me a total of NINE releases now. I can hardly believe it. But what else have I done?
You've met the main characters of Roadtrip for Two, but how about some side characters? I mean, you've already met Katie and Skye in Destination: Romance, and they don't play a huge role in this story. Though Bree talks to Katie a few times. But there are a couple other characters you see. Some fun church people in Dallas. And then, Nathan's brother Josh, and Mama Hart.
You guys, as someone who never thought she wanted to write a series, I can't begin to describe my excitement over having the second book of a series release. It's so much fun. And just look at those covers next to each other!!! I am on pins and needles waiting to see what the third one will look like with Skye and Benjamin and Boulder in the background. But more about them later.
Because today, we're still focused on Bree and Nathan.
My last Roadtrip Romance book was set in several different areas, but this one is different. Roadtrip for Two isn't supposed to be a roadtrip at first.
If you remember at the end of the first book, Bree and Nathan's friends are talking them into taking their honeymoon cruise despite the engagement being called off. And they're not telling the other one, so it will be a surprise when they both show up on the same ship.
No one was expecting a hurricane to mess things up. So, when Bree and Nathan run into each other in the Dallas airport ... and get stranded by bad weather ... plans change.
Are you ready to start meeting the characters for my next novel?
Roadtrip for Two releases in just over two weeks and that means it's time to give you more information.
In the first book in this series, Destination: Romance, Bree was more of a side character. She's Katie's best friend and was one of their roadtrip trio all through college. Now, however, she gets her own trip. Or does she?
At the end of the first book, Bree and Nathan have broken up, called off the wedding, and she's heartbroken. Her friends decide to convince her to take the non-refundable honeymoon cruise to start moving past her heartbreak.
She never expects to see Nathan at the airport, with the same plans ...
If you've ever been to New Orleans, you'll know Jackson Square is one of the best places to visit. It's full of history, museums, shops, and the sidewalks often have vendors and artists. So, it was a no-brainer to have my characters exploring the area in Destination: Romance.
Of course, as an author, I get to play a little loose with reality as I describe things that happen there. When I visited New Orleans as a teen, I don't remember seeing a caricature artist there. But let's be honest, it fits. So, when my characters find one, it feels right even if it never happened to me in real life.
Of course, a book needs more than just two characters. Today, we're going to chat about a few of the other characters in my book that releases NEXT WEEK, Destination: Romance.
This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
