“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!
