When I started writing, I never would have predicted that I would be writing young adult fiction. Never. Ever. But, much to my surprise, I found myself writing not just one, not two, but three complete young adult novels. And even more surprising, Harmony Ink Press bought all three to publish all three. It has been exciting but it has made my summer intense, to say the least. Having four books in the editorial and production process at the same time has meant a LOT of work. Finish one round of edits on one and then another round of edits on another are back. Finish those and then another round of another one are there. And on, and on, and on.
My trilogy of GLBT young adult fiction has a series title of The Most Popular Guy in the School.
Book 1 is called Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover (released July 15, 2012)
Book 2 is called Go West, Young Man (released August 15, 2012)
Book 3 is called A Star is Born (released September 15, 2012)
Based on exceptionally strong sales, Harmony Ink Press decided to produce book one of this series, Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover, as an audiobook, which was released on July 25, 2014.
After a couple of years spent writing contemporary romance, I felt the YA writer in me clawing to get out. When an idea for a story popped into my head out of nowhere, I knew I had to go with it, so I did, producing Caught, my first YA novel to be in over two years. Published on December 11, 2014 by Harmony Ink Press, I was excited about this book because the two main characters are so dramatically different, coming from utterly opposite backgrounds and worlds. They have a huge chasm between them that they need to cross in order to even talk. The question is whether or not they can navigate their way across that great divide, and if they can, what awaits them on the other side.
Just as I had not planned to write Caught, the two characters wanted to have a number of issues resolved, so I wrote another book called Caught in the Middle. This book was published May 28, 2015 by Harmony Ink Press and can be read either independently or as a follow-up to the first book.
