Sharing Space 2, The Witness, and More

Hey guys,

I know it’s been awhile. If you follow me on Twitter you know that most of my time has been spent growing Project Fandom, the entertainment website I own. When I’m not managing the content and writers there, I’m writing my own reviews or recording one of the many podcasts we produce. It’s kept me super busy and not always allowed me the time I want to write fiction.

But that recently changed and I’m so excited to share my upcoming projects with you. Let me give you an update on what’s to come and when you can expect it.

Sharing Space 2 

Just like the first time, this will be a serialized publication with each new book released every 4-6 weeks. It is currently a five-book series with all but the final book completely written. I’ve been working with a new editor, who is fantastic. I put out a call to my friends earlier this year, hoping to get referrals for one or two Black women editors (#SupportBlackWomen) and I got back an embarrassment of riches. The editor I chose has been extremely helpful in ensuring the Sharing Space series is the best it can be and worthy of the love we have for the characters. Sadly, she experienced a sudden loss in her family and needs some time to process and mourn. She offered her current clients a refund or the choice to reschedule. I chose reschedule.

For one thing, I completely understand what death and grief can do to your life; I’ve lost three people I loved dearly in the last four years. It didn’t seem fair to add losing work to everything she’s dealing with. Secondly, guys, she’s so damn good. For real. I will go into details in the books’ acknowledgments, but I’m not overselling it when I say she has been instrumental in improving the story I created for the next chapter in Chloe’s and Patrick’s lives.

You can expect Sharing Space 2 Book One: New Rules by mid-June. So, one more month, but I think it will be worth the wait.

Lily in the Middle 

This is painful and I don’t think I’ve ever expressed what happened with this book to anyone – not even my husband.

Let me start by saying that I love Lily Hartwell. She is brilliant, funny, and complex. And I wasn’t doing her story justice. I went through so many re-writes and nothing felt like it was working. And I can’t even explain why. It’s just not the story I envisioned so I set it aside.

I’m not giving up, though. I’m just no longer willing to rush it and I had to give myself permission to table it for its own good. As much as I didn’t want to disappoint all the readers who’d been waiting for it, it would have been more disappointing to all of us if I put out a shitty book. I believe you’ll be reading about Lily one day.

The Witness

I’ll have an official synopsis to share soon, but I can tell you now that The Witness is about an attorney hired to take on a major corporation based in Portland, Oregon. Will an attack on her life stop her from getting justice for her client? Can the sexy detective with his own secrets protect her?

You’ll find out this summer.
