How can I express how excited I am to be releasing my third full length novel?! There are days I say – I only have three books and a short story out?? Why am I not a faster writer?? Other times I stop and truly think about the fact that I’ve written books! I created a world that I love and I hope that readers will as well. There were times I’ve toiled, cried, pulled my hair, and I’ve wanted to quit more than once. But every time the little demons of doubt plagued me, I’ve always had someone encourage me and pull me out of that pit I got stuck in. And it’s always worth it once it’s been done.
This book took longer for me to put together than the others. From the beginning, I always knew Zach and Hilary’s story was different. It wasn’t the typical boy-meets-girl, meet-cute scenario I had been used to writing. There were no moments of the getting to know each other stage because they already knew each other. But when I delved into their backstory, I realized how rich and layered and textured it could be. I also realized that they were getting to know each other in a completely different way and that gave me more to work with. But I always want to make sure bases are covered with my characters. My a-ha moments with each character has to come to me, and with Zach and Hilary, it took me longer than usual to figure those out.
I have a tendency to be embarrassed when someone compliments my work. I’ve always told myself I shouldn’t accept it because I’m still growing and learning. This book has taught me to stand up tall (as tall as I can – since I’m pretty short) and receive the compliments. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished in the span of a year and a month. Writing is hard. It takes a lot out of you when you’re giving your all to characters. They are a part of who the author is, and you want to do them justice and do right by your readers. I can only hope I’ve done that. I also hope to improve in my writing technique with each go. It’s important to me to bring the best that I can to someone who spends their hard earned money to escape the world around them to get lost in mine. I also thank everyone, and I mean EVERYONE who has helped along the way. I can’t do it without that support. I’d be lost otherwise.
So, with that said, bringing A Promise Broken out into the world feels pretty damn great. I hope you love it!!
