Forlorn is finally being released today, and I’m really excited. This book didn’t take a lot of time from start to finish compared to Astray, but writing a novel is always a lengthy process that takes plenty of effort. The setting in this second part of the series is quite different from the first book, and I truly enjoyed writing it. Perhaps not at all stages (I always find the very first round of editing more or less painful), but I am fond of this book and I had tons of fun creating it.

I just wrote the final scenes for Wavesongs #3, the last book in the series. I’ve never finished a first draft this quickly before (3,5 weeks – Astray and Forlorn took 6 weeks each), and even though the manuscript is extremely messy at this point and there are a lot of new scenes that need to be added in, I’m just so pleased with it. Because I did it, I finished this story no matter how many times I’ve been close to giving up over the years.
Book #2, Forlorn, will be out in March and is currently with the copy editor. So I’ll soon be busy getting that one ready for publishing, before I can focus entirely on book #3 again. Hopefully it won’t be too long before I can set a release date for it. I’m really looking forward to the day when I have all three books in my bookshelf at home, next to Entertaining the Sombrevilles.
Right now I’m still an emotional wreck over the book and the final scenes and those characters that I love so much. Before I’ve reached a milestone in my writing I always think of how I’ll celebrate when I’m finally there, but it seems I just have a cry instead and then start working on something else. I guess I’m just not good at celebrating.
