This is Newb, our new kitten. Newb is my peace offering for being gone so long. I hope he has made you feel less stabby towards me. He seems to have that effect.
Now, let’s get to updates!
I had a brain fart for most of April and May and June…and some of July. Those months I just couldn’t even look at NSI. During July, I decided to force myself to start writing every day. DIdn’t matter what I wrote or if it was just editing, I had to sit down and work for at least an hour. For some reason, that did the trick. I’d hoped to do the update at the beginning of August, but I didn’t get into a rhythm of writing until about mid-month. Now, I’m writing every day without forcing it. In fact, I’ve been getting to the gym later and later because I wanted to finish whatever I was doing at the time on NSI! This is good news for y’all, it’s not so good news for arm day. I may end up looking like a T Rex but at least my book will be done! That’s all I really have to report on NSI. I wish it was more. I had hoped it’d be more, but at least there’s good news. Right?
The other good news I have is that Sara Alva just published her audiobook for Pura Vida and her narrator is the same guy who did Shattered Glass! =D He’s awesome. It’s awesome. You should check it out. They did a kinda fun interview too.
Simon has found himself in an open relationship for the summer – though not by choice. Instead of wallowing, he’s decided to make the most of a family vacation to Costa Rica by hooking up with the first hot guy available. The trouble is, he has no clue how to go about doing that.
Luckily, he runs into someone with a little more experience. But when the moments of lust turn into something more, Simon isn’t so sure he’ll be able to return to his old relationship. And there’s no way to hold onto this new one, either, as thousands of miles will separate them in only a few short weeks. Either way, he’ll have to learn to let go.
Over the next few days, i’m going to be answering emails and comments that I’ve neglected for the last few months (because I’m an ass and also because I felt so shitty for not having any updates!)
