I’ve been editing all week so my brain is so much mush right now but I wanted to stop for a second and talk a bit about my second book.
First off, the release date is now set for my second novel. On July 3, “Pack” will be released as a trade paperback and I couldn’t be more excited for it.
My elevator pitch for the book isn’t terribly strong (it’s about a family that’s falling apart. And they happen to be from a long line of werewolves), so if you’re on the fence, here’s what was in my head while I was writing it. I wanted to write something with a lot of colorful characters. I wanted to write something that spoke to family and how hard it can be. I wanted to write something where werewolves ripped bad guys apart. I wanted write something fantastical grounded in my home state.
I think I got there. Like a lot of projects, when I was done with it I felt kind of blah about it but the more I go back and make changes (shoutout to my editor Alexandra Hess) the more I’m not just proud of it, I really like it. I think it’s a solid story that sneaks up on you and if you relate to the characters at all, this book is going to get you.
Of course I don’t want to write anything straight forward so I also peppered the book with a history of the fictional Nebraska town where the story is set. I’m told that’s kind of a neat. I hope so.
Last thing – pre-orders are weighted heavily when it comes to publishing, so if you are interested in this book, pre-ordering it is a big help. I appreciate each and every person who reads my work and thank you for the support. If you read it and like it (or don’t), let me know. I love talking about it.
