I haven't written in awhile. Not just on the blog, but in general. I read a seriously bad review on my first book that threw me into the depths of discouragement. Then my wise cousin (who is also a writer) reminded me that when someone says, "I don't normally read this genre", those aren't the people I want reading my books anyway. Of course they aren't going to get it. He also told me how many bad reviews Twilight got. He said the people were brutal in their criticism. Apparently all those people were wrong since the books turned into movies and every kind of merchandise you could ever imagine. I wrote Destiny Bound as a single book. But I fell in love with Sofia and Nico. A few people told me it was their favorite of my novels so far. I had to agree. I will always have a special place in my heart for Waverly and Finn, but I just really didn't want to give up my new characters. I started writing after I published it, continuing their story. I already had 99 pages when I lost the desire to write. Well, I've decided that I don't really care what people think. I know I won't be the next Stephenie Meyer. But there is another story inside me somewhere and I'm going to write it for myself. My goal is to have it published by September since that's when I published the first one. This one will be called Destiny Revealed and I think I have a cover already. The guy looks just how I envisioned Nick, but the girl isn't as pretty as Sofia, so I'm mulling it over. I'll keep you posted on the progress and perhaps give a sneak peek at some point.

Just for fun, here is who I envisioned playing Waverly and Finn in the movie. They would be perfect, yeah?
