These last few weeks have been torturous for me. One of my greatest thrills during this writing process has been including you all on every turn of events, every little milestone or shred of good news. I love the transparency of it all. Posting sample chapters, allowing you to read rough drafts, letting you know what I’m working on (even how many words into each project I am). I love it. That’s why, when I have crazy cool news looming but I’m not allowed to say anything, it absolutely drives me nuts.
I’m hoping that changes over the next few weeks. It sounds like one of the pieces of gossip will be officially announced sometime next week (I hope), which means you’ll see me blasting it right here. A second cool development could fall into place around the same time, but there’s no telling when it might be announced. It’ll be a difficult one to sit on if that’s what I have to do.
These, my friends, are the mixed blessings of working with others. When you’re 100% independent, you can gossip all you like. As soon as there are deals and teams in place, you have to abide by their timeframe. Which I totally understand, of course. But understanding this doesn’t make it any easier.
