I am really trying very hard not to be a one hit wonder and I wanted to drop a line and mention that I am making progress on my next book. January to May is the busiest time of the year at work and also the most stressful and I really found myself sitting down and just not wanting to write.
Glad tidings though, the project is at rest and I’m sitting down every day and writing. Also, while I wasn’t really in the mood to write, I did a lot of outlining of scenes and they’re going pretty quick. I should be finished in another week and my hope is the book will be out by the end of June depending on how quickly my editor can get to it.
The title, unless lightning strikes me with a new inspiration, will be Our Demented Play Date. It’s about two seventeen year old girls who’re dragged on what they assume will be a boring family vacation during which they’re expected to make nice as if they’re little kids on a play date. Well, it turns out they have a lot in common.
After Play Date, I’m torn between another Cape Cod story set in Provincetown and an idea I’ve had kicking around my head inspired by my time working at a pizza joint in college.
