So, news has started to trickle out that I am in the (slow) process of releasing a new book in my Project Enterprise series. I’m doing what we call a “soft” launch, because, well, because it has been hard for me to get my writing mojo back after losing my parents last year.
So it was with fear and trembling that I committed myself to releasing Found Girl: Project Enterprise 6 on July 20th, 2017. I was waffling on a release date and finally picked the July 20th because it is my mom’s birthday.
It is probably the biggest leap of faith I’ve taken since I sent my very first book to an agent twenty-three years ago (OUCH!).
Since then I’ve released about twenty books, but I have not felt this level of anxiety since that first. Hence, the tip-toeing into the release. Which does nothing to answer the question of why?
Why did I write Found Girl?
- Because readers have been asking for more books in the Project Enterprise series.
Because I realized there were more stories to tell in that universe.
Because Project Enterprise seemed like a good place to restart the writing.
I was wrong, mostly because I don’t think there was an easy place. And after my first draft, I was almost convinced I’d never get MY mojo back. Thanks to the kindness of friends and family, I am almost confident that my mojo is back.
Would you like to read Found Girl? I have no idea. If you haven’t seen it, here’s the blurb:
She likes being lost…
He needs to be found…
Arian Teraz would be perfectly happy if she never returned to her cheerless, hopeless world. Her life changes when her ship is damaged. Rescued by a handsome alien from a distant galaxy, Arian longs to find a place with him and his people.
Hotshot USAF pilot, Captain Jackson “Coop” Cooper knew the risks of boldly going somewhere before he signed up for the Project Enterprise expedition. When an anomaly sends his ship into a mysterious, no-exit sanctuary about to be invaded by a deadly adversary, he is forced to trust the unusual woman who might be his only ticket out.
With an invasion threatening the sanctuary and enemies emerging from Arian’s past, Arian and Coop must combine forces to seize an uncertain future together. Can they save each other as they battle the forces trying to rip them apart, or will the secret Arian’s ship carries – along with those seeking to exploit her – separate them forever?
Grab your copy of Found Girl today and dive into the sixth installment in the award-winning Project Enterprise series – your transport to action, adventure, and romance in space.
It’s now available for preorder at Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, Nook, and GooglePlay. If you have questions about this release, I’ll answer them (if I can!). No spoilers, sweetie!
I love comments so much that I pick a favorite to receive my monthly AnaBanana gift basket ($25 value). (And don’t forget that once a quarter I’ll be tossing in something fun from the Perilously Fun Shop!) The recipient is announced in the first blog post of the new month.
