“Where is the Ace of Diamonds,” is a question that I commonly hear. I get the question in person, in email, and through Facebook and Twitter. To be honest, a part of me does enjoy hearing the question because it lets me know that people are interested in my work. In addition, it also makes me feel as if I am letting my readers down because I don’t always have an exact answer to the question. I also cannot give the answer that they want such as a release date.
In terms of the novel right now, it is finished. After hitting several unexpected roadblocks, I have decided to move forward and self-publish the book. Unlike Carmen, I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I also do not have a multi-million dollar business that allows me to live lavishly. However, what I do have is faith in God. While I cannot give a solid release date as to when the book will be available, I do want to say that I am working to have it available sometime this year. I have already started taking steps to make this happen.
While I am working to save for this project, I will be starting a blog series dedicated to the Diamond Collection entitled, Behind the Book. This series will give a, “behind the scenes” glance at my thoughts and visions for characters, settings, etc. As a fan/ reader, you will also have the chance to inquire about anything that you want to know regarding the series. I am looking forward to your feedback and hope you stay with me for the ride!
Hello I just love your books please continue your great work. Also did this story really happen? It sounds so real! I can’t wait to read more of the diamond collection!
Hi, Meg! The Diamond Collection is completely fiction, however, at times, there are certain elements from my real life and the lives of others that inspired certain scenes or situations. Please be on the lookout for The Ace of Diamonds, which is Part III of the series. I will be posting a special preview on 01/01/2013.
