Things are looking a little dusty here on the blog. Hm. I suppose I should fix that, huh?
Yeah, not really much to report. I’ve been saving my writing for these band nerds. O.M.G. the drama! They all have some defining moment in their lives that they want to share with me and the world. Damn kids. But you know, I don’t mind it. Not really. It’s fun to sink into their brains and help them work out their problems, find love, all that good stuff.
Book Three in the Band Nerd series is coming out in less than two weeks and I’ll admit to being a little nervous. The characters weren’t easy on my self-confidence. But it happens that sometimes. The main character in Touched by Lightning wasn’t easy on me either. She had a rough past and so did Jolene Pickering, the heroine for Crash. Levi “Crash” Cracchiolo didn’t help either. Meh.
But it’s done. That’s the good thing.
I sent a newsletter out with a list of books I’m hoping to work on. Which I’m finding is never a good thing for me to do. I’m not a writer who sticks to a plan obviously. I was going to write Rien’s book next. Anders’ brother is just hanging out there being bad and I wanted him to be struck by the love bug. But that isn’t happening. No, Jason “Princess” Simoneaux shoved Rien out of the way and told me he wanted his book written. Then Cuba “Cube” Moody piped up with his story… You see where I’m going with this? The characters drive the stories. I just write what they tell me to.
So that’s what’s going on in the world of Danica. I’m merely a medium for my characters. But I haven’t forgotten about all the other books and characters who are waiting for their stories. I do have plans to finish the sci-fi serial. I also have my post-apocalyptic book poking at the edges of my mind, plus Jack Frost’s story for the Reindeer Games series.
Looks like 2017 is going to be a busy year and that’s a good thing.
In the meantime…
