H.D._Femme_pleurant_à_la_fin_du_jour2At midnight precisely on November 1st, 2011, I started work on my fifth novel. To my delight, when I finished, I felt like I had the framework of a story worth publishing. Two and a half years later, after working it around to be something I liked better, I gave it to one of my best friends to alpha read and thus began my official journey toward publication.

Since then, there have been some complicating factors on this project that have put far too much pressure on me, and it isn’t something I can allow to continue. Sadly, this means shelving Faerie Blood and the Hidden Bloodlines series. I’ve learned a lot through this project about what I want from my writing, and what I don’t want.

This was a difficult decision to make, but I know it’s the right one for now. In the meantime, I’m not sure what’s going to be happening as far as my solo writing goes. I may spend more time on QoB or I may dive back into my underwater world.

Abigail Erynne and I are still plugging away at our massive dark urban fantasy NA. If you missed it, you can read the two part excerpt and get a glimpse into our co-writing strategy.

(Psst! It doesn’t get really exciting until part 2, so be sure you read both.)
