As Promised...

Look at me being good today :) lol

Get ready for a long post!

Last post was in November, so there's a lot to go over...

First up, catch up time! (both personal & book-related)

  • Happy belated Holiday season lol & happy belated New Years!
  • So what's happened since November in my life?  Well...I had a TON of bdays in the last quarter of last year + a ton of bdays already this year (and Feb isn't even over yet) - including my bday, yay!
  • My baby boy's 1st bday is next month!!! Where does the time go?  I've been busy planning his bday
    • It's going to be at a kid's play area, but since it's his 1st, I'm going a bit above & beyond what's expected at a kid's place
    • I tend to share more details about my life in my reader group on Facebook, so if you want to hear all about his 1st bday (and/or other stuff in my life, join DC's Diamonds!)
  • I finished writing Love's Deception, but it's still sitting on my desktop, eek!  Need to send to my editor & get the ball rolling.
  • And finally, Let Hate Go was released on Friday, 2/22!!!
    • Time to talk about Let Hate Go...
Who remembers Let Me Go and/or Let It Go?
Let Me Go was my first book.  It's my baby, a fan fave, and my best seller.
I never planned to turn it into a series.  It was always going to be a stand-alone, but Mason's best friend, Benny, was a special character.  And apparently everyone else agreed because I was flooded with requests for Benny to get his own story.  So, of course he did.

Enter, Let It Go.
After this, I got questions on whether the other characters would get stories.  I hadn't planned on it until then, but then the stories came to me!  I wrote them down so I wouldn't forget, and figured I'd get back to write them after I finished the book I was working on.  And then another story idea popped in my head, and another, and so on.  And alas, the Let Go series was semi-forgotten.

Well, end of last year, I was invited to join a "super secret project."  It was several authors writing 25K-ish word novellas, all romance, all HEA's, to be released within the month of February (for Valentine's Day, of course 💖😉). As I was thinking of what story to write, bam, it hit me - my opportunity to come back to the Let Go series.  That's how Let Hate Go came to be.  It's not only book 2.5/3 in the Let Go series, but it's also book 5 in the Cupid's Aim series.
The books weren't announced until the cover reveals at the end of January.  There were/are 6 authors in total.  Five of the books have been released (Let Hate Go included), and the last is coming tomorrow!

This post is already long, so I'll be back tomorrow to tell you all about the Cupid's aim series!
