Looking Ahead to 2023
August brings something a bit different. Next year, along with Heather Greer, Regina Merrick, and Erin Howard, I am writing a quadrilogy--a four-part series. Heather's starts the year off in January with Window of Opportunity. Her story is set in the 1920s in the little town we made up for our series. Regina's comes next in April, set in the 1970s. Hers is called Window of Peace. My story, Window of the Heart, releases August 1st, and is set in present day. I love how Ty and Lennox's story turned out, and I hope you will too. And then Erin wraps us up in December with Window of Time, where her character falls into a dystopian future. I think it's going to be a lot of fun to follow this family, town, and small chapel with a stained glass window through all those stories.
Finally, in October, how about some Christmas? My Mama Dated Santa releases October 17th. Set in Waco, TX, with a toy store, a Santa (obviously), and several broken hearts, it's going to give you all the feels. At least, that's my hope. It has every part of what you're going to want in a Christmas novel, including hot chocolate and a sleigh ride. ;) I can't wait to share more with you as we get closer.
And I plan to keep working on future projects too. I plan to write Must Love Jane if nothing else, though I'd like to knock out at least one other book in that series. You heard me right. It's another series. Must Love Jane follows Just Add Groom which I wrote last year. I call it my College Chapel series. And I have TWO more books planned for that one. Now, to find the time to actually write them down!
I will also be finishing up my novella for 2024 (another Christmas story). And who knows what else I might squeeze in here and there between working three jobs and mommy-ing? You just never can tell with me. I have big dreams and goals and plans. But I'm also learning to accept that I can't do EVERYTHING. A big goal is to learn to say "NO" a bit more too. We'll see.
In March, I'm pretty excited because I have been asked to speak at a Ladies' Day in West Virginia. The theme is "God is the author of our lives." Hoping I can tweak my notes for that a bit more over Christmas break. And excited to meet some of my readers up that way.
How's your 2023 looking? Is it as full as mine already? Which of my upcoming stories are you most looking forward to?
