It’s the fourth month of 2020, which is obviously the perfect time to share my writing goals for the year, right?
Actually, I feel like the coronavirus and the shelter in place thing we’re all doing has spurred on a do-over. Now, let it be known that I have spent the last four weeks as unproductive as possible on my writing, as it should be. This has not been some grand vacation of free time. In reality, it’s been four weeks of figuring out work and school from home, blowing up my daily routine, and trying not to go crazy by being in close quarters with my family.
But all is well.
I’ve also been refocusing my direction, as I told you in my last blog entry. As much as I love Turtle Treasure, I need it to rest for a moment. Not only that, but I really want to focus on my romance novels, and that one just doesn’t fit into the plan.
What does fit in the plan, as most of you know, is the Just Desserts, the long-awaited second book of the Dessert for Dinner series.
I’d love to say I have all these grand writing plans, but I’m really keeping it simple. My one hard and fast goal is to finish editing Just Desserts and publish it THIS YEAR. In a perfect world, it will be done this summer.
After that, I have a few choices. I have a third book in this series in mind, but I’m also itching to start writing a new series.
As for now, I’m so excited about Just Desserts! For those of you who have read and loved Come Here, Cupcake, this second book in the Dessert for Dinner series continues Morgan’s story as she travels across the ocean in search of the magic that will save her mother. Just like in Come Here, Cupcake, you can expect romance, lots of comic relief, and a few surprising developments.
If you haven’t read the first book in this series yet, now’s a great time to get caught up. You can find Come Here, Cupcake here.
