What’s Next for TMDBooks?

With the latest book finally released last week (Finding Hope, book 3 of the Find Me series)…it’s now time to set my writer sights on the next project. I honestly didn’t know till this weekend which book I’d work on after FM3. There’s just so many stories to choose from. SO many, y’all, it’s not even funny. To be clear, I have three current series and I don’t know, maybe a gazillion and seven NEW ideas festering to be born. I’m not sure I’m even exaggerating that number. I could be. But I’ve never counted the endless messages of notes I’ve jotted down about a new book idea over the last two years, so it could be WAY more than a gazillion and seven. But it would mean leaving my series’ readers in the lurch. My point? I’m not going to write an entirely new idea right now. So sorry.

The Find Me books have three titles now (averaging about 85k words each). The Station books have three as well (averaging about 45k words each), plus three novelettes, and the Hutch and A’ris series has one book (100k+ words). I asked readers which series they most want to see another book from sooner and they were no help. Because it seems that readers want everything next! So then I had to look at a few mitigating factors: recent releases, book length and interest. That last one is for me, not the readers. lol But that’s also not helpful because I could work on all three of these series! I love my babies equally. (Disclaimer – Yes, that’s true, but I have to say that often, otherwise the Muse will freak the freak out.)

Why bother explaining all this? Because no matter which series I choose to continue with right now, I know some readers might be bummed and will be impatiently waiting for me to finish another book so they can get the NEXT part of their favorite series. And there’s only one me. And so little time in a day.

Which is why I’m choosing to write a fourth Station book. I needed to take a break after the third, and I did that. I let readers into the minds of Niles, Mallory and Kerry-Anne, but Piper Willow needs more time. And the readers have been waiting. The Station books are generally shorter. This means that if I write 2k words a day, 5 days a week, I’d be putting out 10k words a week, or an entire book in one month. Small beans for some of my author friends, but a decent challenge for me. These are low writing goals because my schedule is tight with two young children at home with me (mostly) all the time. It also means I’ll have to actually WRITE those 10k words a week rather than spend time talking about writing online. Sorry, social media, but the plan is for you to see less of me. *double wink*

What’s totally awesome about making a decision is I get to do the fun planning stuff now. The title (already have one in mind – but can’t announce that just yet – SPOILERS), the outlining, the characters…honestly, I’m excited to get back into the Station with Piper! How about you – are you happy for this news? If so, then enough talk and let’s do the happy dance together!

Happy Monday, Everyone!

Throwback Thursday

It’s already been over a year since DYING to FORGET the first book of The Station series was published, can you believe that? For a little TBT, here’s a snippet from the book. It’s FREE if you want to read more, so, what’s stopping ya? Not a thing! *wink*


I thump my hands on the steering wheel to the beat of the music and ignore the rising number on the speedometer. I have every street in between Bree’s house and my apartment memorized. I floor the pedal as we head up a hill, and let the car barrel down the other side at nearly fifty miles an hour. A sliver of moon is all that shows in the inky sky, and it seems even the stars are hiding.

It’s Bree’s scream that startles me out of my music reverie but I see the car backing out of the driveway too late, and the front end of my Focus slams into the back of the Honda. The last thing I see as my body slams forward into the airbag is Bree’s beautiful brown hair billowing out around her before her body crashes through the windshield.

“People think a smile means you’re happy. But it doesn’t. A smile is just a mask that hides what you really feel – what you really think. They say I have a pretty smile, but they have no idea how ugly I feel on the inside. How ugly I think the world is. I don’t trust smiles anymore…they’re just lies that hide the truth. I’m sick and tired of smiling.”

– Kerry-Anne, a Station Series Novelette
