AKA Lil' Nuggets of Info, Yo

Perfect GIF is perfect.

I know, I know... you guys have been waiting for a long time for information about #TheUnnamedSequel. Some of you have even been waiting patiently (lol). I get it, I promise I do. I appreciate it so much. And I can't even express to you how absolutely honored and humbled and excited and freaking "asdfghjkl; ahhhhhhh!!1!" I am about people reading my work, and loving it, and being enthusiastic about it. Without you guys, there really is nothing. I write because I HAVE to write... I write because I can't go a day without characters and plots invading my mind and creating these stories that my fingers ache to put into words. But without you, it would be a lonely, lonely place, where all of those words find themselves crammed in a faded old composition book in the back of my closet instead of out there in the world, being seen. Writing is my dream... you readers are sorta like my dream weavers.

And I love you for it. Truly. I wish I could meet all of you and take you for dinner and take you back to my place and--

I'll stop there before it gets creepy.

Having said that, my dear lovely readers, I have some good news and some bad news.

Good news? I have tickets to see Maroon 5 in a few weeks. I also have tickets to see Imagine Dragons in May. And tickets to see One Direction in August. Oh, yeah, and I have a brand spankin' new novella coming out somewhere within that time span.

Whhhaaaattt?? Right?! I'm SUPER EXCITED about it. It's unlike anything I've ever written before, but at the same time it's classic me (you know I love the angst, right?). It's titled "Bleeding Out" and my foray into the paranormal genre:

“She gazed into the eyes of evil…
…and what she found there was unbearably beautiful.”

I'll release a full blurb and a cover and a tease, along with announcing a definite release date, and goodies and giveaways in the next few weeks/months leading up to it.

Alas, I KNOW it's not why you're reading this, but I'm so excited about this new project and hope you guys are willing to give it a chance.

Soooo.... the bad news? *sigh*

I really don't have any. But it's not-as-good news, I suppose.

I was hoping to be able to spew a whole lot of info to you today, but alas, I can't. I CAN, however, confirm that you WILL get #TheUnnamedSequel in 2013. That bad boy will most assuredly be released by the end of this year. And over the next few weeks/months we'll be announcing the title (*I'm* not even sure about the title now, as we've gone back to the drawing board on it), and a more definite release date, and details from the publisher and a whole lot of exciting goodies and tidbits and SEMPRE-related stuff and contests. You know, the fun shit! You've been waiting for the second part of Carmine & Haven's story for awhile now, and there is an end in sight (Think: Merry Christmas! lol). I'm excited for you to be able to read it. The story means so much to me, and I hope you find it worth the wait.

I'm seriously sorry I can't tell you more yet, but soon. Very soon. I swear. Just as bad as Carmine.

Again, I adore you guys. Thank you for your patience.
