Smother released in May. I will admit, I had hopes it would do better, but with everything, you move on and focus on the future. So I did.
The first draft of Blake's story is complete, untitled as it is. The goal is to traditionally publish it, with the help of my literary agent, Kim Lionetti, from Bookends, LLC. If this happens, most things Blake will be out of my hands. If a traditional book deal does not happen, I will be able to provide better answers about all things Blake Malone. I realize I just said a bunch of nothing. Let's move on.
Roomies and Unlit Star, along with Take Care, Sara, are now all in audio formats. If you like to listen to your books, you'll be happy to know this.
Roomies was picked up by a Turkish agency and will be translated! That's pretty cool, actually.
I'm three-quarters of the way through another book. As with all my books, this one has some seriousness, some humor, some sorrow, and of course, a message. I am horrible at categorizing my work, and I personally don't agree with the need to do so, but regardless, I feel this will fit best in the Contemporary Romance category. The cover, blurb, and title reveal are set for October 15th. If interested in sharing about it, please contact me.
I participated in four book events in 2015. They were amazing and fun and scary. I have three lined up for next year (they're posted somewhere on the website). I was happily stunned by how many readers drove hours, or flew, or even just came, even if it wasn't far, to meet me. It's humbling to realize people out in the world actually think I have talent. Thank you!
Take care and stay Zartianly.
