Springtime Update for Writing Belle: Getting Back Into Writing (and release announcements)

It's been crazy around here! For the first time in an entire decade, I took a short hiatus from novel-writing. My break has lasted roughly 2 months (honestly not long enough, but I'll take what I can get!), and it's been one of the most cleansing experiences of my life. For me, after writing 25 + books in less than 8 years, a small break was greatly needed. I recently began my journey to finishing my B.A. as well, and that has kept me busy too. I'm taking almost 20 units this semester, and with a running, leaping toddler to keep me on my toes, there aren't enough hours in the day to juggle coursework with mom life. But hey - I wouldn't want it any other way! 

It's possible that you're not up to speed on my announcement regarding Child of Darkness. I was forced to push the release out a few months, due to the fact that I personally felt the novel was not up to par with my normal standards. I hadn't had enough time to finish the manuscript, and I hate rushing through a project like this. Therefore, this installment of Cassidy Hart's latest adventure will release Summer 2020 instead. I am currently working on it between my mounds of homework and toddler meal-prep. I deeply apologize for the delay, but you'll be much happier as a reader if I take my time with the story rather than simply release it to make a deadline. The story is important to me, and to maintain the quality and integrity of Cassidy and crew, I just need to take a few more months to finish the novel. 

My daughter, Lacey Esther.
Last fall, I also released a special sneak peek into my science-fiction novel project, titled EXPEDITION 99. I have no release date on that, as I'm still working on the first draft, but that is definitely another project that's on my horizon. 

We also celebrated my daughter's first birthday in January! Where has the time gone? I have a toddler on my hands now! She sings, she dances to music, and she is the most motivated, cheerful child in the world. What an incredible year it's been! 

I appreciate your readership and love so much, and am very grateful for your patience as I create the next Cassidy Hart novel. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for all of you! 

Stay tuned on Writing Belle for more posts. My hiatus has ended, so I will resume regular posting again. I can't wait to get started!
