Okay. I know. It’s been a while since I last blogged, and that is because I have been on a complete writing lull.
Whether it be blog posts or books, everything’s been a little half assed as late, so, I needed to take some time out, and to remind myself how to breathe, (or at least how to be inspired.)
I decided, completely by random, to reread T.J. Klune’s Bear, Otter and the Kid, a book that I haven’t read, in full, for years. Sure, I often flick through T.J’s books and reread the scenes that include doing the baby-making floor tango mostly, but, this was the first time since I was, I believe, seventeen years old that I decided to sit and reread BOATK, and it’s funny. The first time I read this book, with 21 year old Bear, I thought I was way off that age, I thought Bear was so much older, so much more mature (sometimes), and now, being two months away from being 21 myself, I find myself relating to Bear more than I ever did before, I find myself understanding his circumstances and understanding his decision making, and understanding more of the words he uses.
I couldn’t resist continuing the series, with Who We Are and The Art of Breathing which caused me to be attatched to my kindle for almost a week, I loved rereading the bits I remembered, and thoroughly enjoyed rereading the bits that I had completely forgot. I adored the journey that is BOATK, and will always thank the Kid for teaching me how to breathe alongside him, and I count down the days until the fourth, and final instalment of the series comes out.
After being completely drowned in the world of BOATK I’ve found myself in a much better place to continue with my own creations, my own stories, I’ve found a whole new wave of inspiration and plots, and feel like I’m finally back in the swing of things.
So, I must say a Thank You to T.J. who needs to continuing writing such thought provoking and inspiring books, (I loved Tell Me it’s Real, The Queen and the Homo-Jock King, The Lighting Struck Heart and How to be a Normal Person, too of course.)
First of #RJwave2, Superstar is now available with it’s new cover and few added extras inside!
So, here it is, the first rerelease! The first RJ Wave 2 book is going to be released, and of course, how else do I start a rerelease, but with the first book ever released!
Get the new Superstar on the 11th April!
So, I’ve been on a bit of seesaw with this book, but I’ve finally decided I’d give it one more go.
I’ve redesigned my cover, and will have the book edited at some point during 2016, then it will be re-published for the last time.
Three announcements in one, I’m spoiling you now.
I know 2017 seems such a long way away, but I’ve got to start planning now of course. My hiatus is due to end around November ’16 time, and leading up to that time, I’m producing a few books for release in early 2017.
The first will be Ashton: a G3-EKquel, the sequel to On Tour. Fast-forward 15 years, Ollie and Tyler are happily married, and G3-EK are talking about doing a comeback tour, things are going well for them, things however, are not going well for their 13 year old son Ashton, the burden of being the child of one of the biggest band members in the world is starting to get to Ashton and he wants to get out, so he does, in the form of a Boarding School. It’s a completely new start for Ashton, but how long can he last, before his new classmates find out who he actually is?
His Fairy-Tale; Eli has been locked away in his tower for as long as he can remember, and of course, not being a princess hasn’t helped him in the rescuing department. Until one day, when Prince Aleksander stumbles upon his tower, but, rescuing Eli causes a whole range of problems, and it soon becomes clear, he was not the traditional trapped Princess in a tower.
That Awkward Age: What do you do when the world wants you to act like an adult but treats you like a child? Get high, have sex and drink! Being 17 is awkward for anyone, and Tyler and Keenan know this far too well. Whilst trying to decide what to do with their life, they’re also trying to master the world of sex and alcohol.
Keep an eye out for the announcement of their releases dates!
