July is just around the corner, and that means the clock is quickly ticking down towards the release of Book 3, Running Away With You. I have had some difficult decisions to make, and I’ve decided to delay the release for now so that I can make some needed improvements. This is, after all, the final installment in the Running Series and it’s very important to me to get everything just right. I had chosen the July release date based upon my experience writing books one and two. Each book took about four months to write and a month to publish. I used that criteria when determining the release date of the third installment. However, real life doesn’t work that way – it rarely does. So rather than push out a book that’s not ready for publication, I’ve decided to slow down, step back, and listen to the voices in my head. You see, my characters speak to me and if I slow down and truly listen, I can hear them. They are as real to me as you, my readers, whom I’ve never actually met. It’s important that I get it right for them, as well as for you. So with that goal in mind, I am reviewing, revising, and editing – three things I tell my students to do all the time. And when I’m done, I promise that I will have something I can be proud of, not just something that I pushed out to meet an arbitrary deadline. Thank you for your understanding and support.
