The Time Is NowA few years ago, I wrote a novel called The Time Is Now. I tried to revise it. I felt lost. A few people beta read it gave me feedback. I still couldn’t get the story right. But I really loved this story and I didn’t want it to be something that would simply collect dust.

I decided to publish it as a serial novel on wattpad. So what’s it about?

Kyra and Chris went to high school together. He was the good-looking, popular guy that everyone wanted. She was the shy bookworm who never really felt like she fit in. One day he springs her from detention and an unexpected relationship springs from it. For a little over a year, they were each other’s satellite. Then–just as suddenly–he vanished from her life.

No proper goodbye, no real closure and only sporadic contact marks the next fifteen years of their lives. Now a high school reunion brings them together again. Can they rekindle the flame…or is it too late for second chances? 

It’s still in a relatively rough state, but maybe one of these days I will finally take the plunge and do a thorough rewrite/edit. Until then, it will be available for free on wattpad. The first ten chapters are already online and more will be going online in the coming days. Check it out and let me know what you think.

30 Days30 StoriesYesterday marked the end of the 30 Days, 30 Stories challenge. I was hoping to end it with a personal piece, but I started feeling ill on Wednesday and by Friday it was a full-blown cold. Any attempts at writing were aborted due to my head feeling like it was the size of a pumpkin. Instead, I shared the opening scene from a WIP novel that I haven’t quite figured yet.

Many thanks to all of you who followed the progress of the stories on my Facebook author page. You can now find all thirty stories here on wattpad. At some point, I will compile them into a proper e-book. It will have to be later rather than sooner. This cold has sapped me of any energy.

Hopefully soon I’ll also be able to get back to you all with release dates for Maybe Tomorrow and Maybe Forever. I’d initially planned to have both books ready by March, but that’s not going to happen. Work + life + writer’s block got in the way.

Before I sign off I want to give a shout out to Carrie Elks, Christina C. Jones and Inger Iversen–congrats, ladies, to launching new books this week! I’ve got them all lined up on my Kindle. 🙂

I will try to write today. I don’t have any high hopes of greatness unless it’s thanks to a Nyquil-induced haze. Happy weekend…happy reading (and maybe even happy writing).

30 Days30 StoriesEarlier today, while sitting in a meeting at work, I started thinking about my 30 Days, 30 Stories challenge and how it would be great to have all the stories in one place where people can read them. I’ve been sharing them on my Facebook author page and on Goodreads, now I’m sharing it on Wattpad as a compiled book–and, yes, it’s free.

Are the stories perfectly edited? Nope, and they probably never will be until I decide to use them in some future project. But if you want to read them on your phone or your tablet as a proper e-book, you can read them for free by using this link, http://embed.wattpad.com/story/32495751.

Or, if you’re already a member on Wattpad, add it to your library. I’ll be updating until the end of the month. One of the stories, “Drive”, is the first chapter of a novella I’m working on about Jesper, Niklas’s teenage son from Maybe Baby and Maybe Tonight. You’ll see it later this spring. I’ve got to finish a couple of other projects first. 🙂
