We Don’t Talk About So Close

Blacklist Author Note #1
posted: Aug 4, 2022

Well, we didn’t talk about it because it’s no fun hearing about a book you can’t get your hands on for the foreseeable future. But the wait is finally over, and I’m excited to talk about So Close! I can answer your questions, and best of all, you can reserve your copy today.

This post is the first in a series exploring the story and characters. Why? Because I want to take you by surprise in a good way. That can only happen if you go into the read with the right expectations.

So, let’s start at the beginning.

Questions & Answers

You’ve got questions! I’ve got answers. Okay, let’s start at the top.

What took so damn long?

Well, a lot was going on for me personally and with life. The most significant factor was creative burnout. The Crossfire saga took a lot out of me. What readers connected with in Gideon and Eva’s story came from me, at a cost. That’s not a complaint in any way. I love spending time with G & E! But before I could commit that much of myself to another group of characters, I had to refill the well.

Additionally, a lot was happening at home. My mother was diagnosed with lymphoma, and chemotherapy nearly killed her more than once. As my mom began to recover, the pandemic hit, and my children’s newly adult lives were put on hold. Depression became a huge concern in my household. I gave my attention where it was needed most.

Further, the shutdowns impacted every tier of the publishing business and my publishers ruled out releasing a new title from me while bookstores were closed.
