It’s been a while since I’ve been online. Between recovering from the Big Move and suddenly having a toddler who’s mobile and into everything, I just needed a break. I also wanted to take some time off and re-evaluate the direction my writing should take. I really enjoyed writing Love by Design and although I’ve done a lot of work on the second and third books, I just can’t make myself sit down and finish them.
The culprit isn’t the baby or the lack of discipline or the hours I spend reading (okay, maybe this one, a little bit…) but a sexy new project I’ve had on the brain for a really long time.
This new idea got a little boost because of a conversation I had with a Goodreads friend about romances set in foreign places. I’ve always loved to travel. I’ve lived in dozens of cities all around the world, traveled to foreign countries almost every year that I’ve been an adult. It’s a huge part of who I am. And yet I’ve left it out of my writing until now. What a shame!
This new idea is set in one of my favorite foreign cities – Paris. It will be a huge departure from the small-town romance that I’ve done up to now. It’s going to be a lot of work and just thinking about spinning away from what I’ve done for so long has me catching my breath. But it’s time. It’s got to happen. I know in my heart that this is the right thing to do.
I hope you’ll venture with me to this new territory. I can’t tell you exactly where we’re going, but I can guarantee that I’m going to make it as fun as possible.
