Seven Scenes to Go!!!

GUYS!!!! The next Heroes and Villains book is almost done! I have 7 scenes left to write, a quick polish, and it heads off to my beloved beta readers for a once over. Which means it could be with my editor by the end of the month.

Do you know what that means????


And socks. I promised Twitter a $15 gift card to Sock Dreams when I finished. Because I believe in bribing my cheerleaders. :)

This also means I need to make a teeny-tiny sort of confession... Book 2 is not Tabitha's story.


There's a reason.

I wrote and rewrote and gutted and rewrote Tabitha's story three times in 2012. In fact, I spent most of the year bouncing between editing Tabitha's story and editing JANE DOE. Jane went on query while Tabitha malingered.

The story I wrote isn't wrong, but it isn't right for the Heroes and Villains series. I know that would only make sense if I let you read it, but there's problems and I'm still sorting them out.

Heroes and Villains Book 2 is Angela's story. The little girl who can manipulate emotions is all grown up, she's the oldest of the clan, and the first to be forced to choose between a quiet life of anomyity or being superhero by someone else's rules.

It's a different book from EVEN VILLAINS FALL IN LOVE. There are fewer kids, more teens, and fewer minions (don't hate me! Angela shipped them back to Texas). I know this is a huge leap because some of you loved the minions more than anyone else. The minions will be back in full force in Book 3, it's just that [spoilers redacted]. I'm sure you understand or you will as soon as you get a chance to read everything.

I really, really love this book. I can't wait to share it with all of you. It's going to be AWESOME!


  1. I'm so excited! I hope to do another character interview if you're down!

    1. I am! I have you on the review list. Hopefully I can get you an ARC. :)

  2. You write the story you need to tell.

    1. You write the story you need to tell, but even then it wasn't gelling. Something was off and I didn't like it. Eventually Tabitha's story will be told. It might be a short story though.
