Well, here we are at the end of April, and I hope it's safe to say that the East Coast's horrible winter is finally gone. I was lucky enough not to experience it personally, but the pictures alone were horrifying.
I signed a contract last week! I think it's finally time to disclose what my co-author and I have been working on for a really long time. A while back -- okay, eight years back -- my bestie Chris Owen and I wondered what would happen if we decided to write a mash-up of two of our most popular couples. What if Jake and Tor from Bareback happened to meet Chance and Tucker from Heat? Would cowboys and firemen have anything in common? Would they be friends? There were so many questions. We started out writing something just for fun in our spare time, just to see what would happen.
Well, it grew. The little "for fun" story we were writing for our own amusement got longer... and longer... and longer, until it finally topped out around two hundred thousand words. When we stopped, Chris and I realized that the book had evolved into something that needed to be shared. It was a good book.
We broke it up into three smaller, more manageable novels, submitted the first one, and held our breath. Would our publisher be okay with two authors putting popular couples together like this? The answer, thankfully, was yes. Contract has been signed.
Look for the first novel in a three-book trilogy to be out sometime in the next six months. This has been eight years in the making, and we promise you that Never Too Early: The Beginning will knock your socks off.
