What is The End? I love how a simple phrase can have multiple meanings, and it brings us different emotions depending on the situation.
When I’m writing, I love when I reach the end, especially if my characters have fought me throughout the entire story. When I’m reading, I might be sad to reach the end because I’m not ready to leave those characters behind. But that’s also a good thing about the end of the book. A lot of the time, the characters’ story isn’t really over. Especially for us romance readers. Stories usually end at a perfect moment of happily ever after, and that allows us to imagine more of the story for ourselves. Do you ever do that?
This month will see the end of a series that I’ve worked on for over two years. It’s a bittersweet moment, because I love these characters and the world I’ve been part of for so long. As a reader, how do you feel about series ending? There are some I wish would go on forever…like the Bradford Sisters series by Becky Wade.
The end of this series isn’t all bad, though. Like most aspects of life, there’s more happening behind the scenes that we might be unaware of.
While I’m ending one season of writing, I’m beginning another.
After four years of writing, rewriting, and lots of prayer, I finally get to say that I’ll be writing for Harlequin Love Inspired! I don’t have a release date yet, but it’s looking like I might see my book in stores sometime in 2023. So while I’m sad to see my part of the Independence Islands end, there’s more on the horizon.
And I’m plotting more Love Inspired hopeful books, so what kind of books would you like to see from me?
