Movies. Television shows. Comic Books.
It happens all the time. Some reboots are good some not so much. I'm an avid Black Widow comic book fan. I have read the old, the new, the what the hell is going on. Storylines change. Characters come back from the dead. Then die again.
Then come back.
I was reading The Black Widow Creating the Avenging Super-Spy last month, and it dawned on me. Why couldn't I reboot my book? When I initially published it, I wasn't in a proper headspace. I was mourning the loss of my grandma, as a family, we were contemplating relocation, Logan was going through a difficult time with a couple of homeschool friends which caused drama within the group. I didn't put my 100% into marketing the book. The reviews were stellar, but I didn't have many. The book became stale.
The author world moves at a fast pace and not publishing anything in over three years hurt me. I'm going through an evolution/reinvention time. Our son is doing college courses and doesn't need to teach him. My husband travels quite a bit. Now is the time for me to dive back into writing full time because writing and publishing books for fun doesn't work for me. I'm not programmed that way. I need to be all in or not at all.
In the coming weeks, I will seek out readers and bloggers to send out ARC's of a familiar but expanded book.
Wreak--formally known as The Red Roots--will release May 9th, 2018. If you are asking yourself when she did she publish that book? I've never heard of it.
You're not alone.
Many of my readers hadn't a clue, and that's all on me.
Let me introduce you to Isla Pierce.
Hacker for the white collar organized crime empire, Amaranthine, Isla is married to one of the bosses sons Reed Pierce. She married him out a revenge not love. Isla grew up at Walker Plantation after her parents were victims of a hit and run, her grandmother's husband abused her. Pregnant, Isla ran away but put forth a plan to destroy the Walker name.
Wreak is the first book in The Uprising Series. The series is about women taking back their lives. No matter the trial and tribulations they come together and rise above their situations. They are mothers. They are daughters. They are wives. They are warriors. They love, and they fight for family.
The second book in the series, Frenzy will release Summer of 2018.
Wreak is off to my magnificent formatter. I look forward to you reading Wreak, and I promise I won't leave you hanging. I sometimes know series scare readers, but I assure you the books will release promptly.
I also have a couple standalone books which will come out later this year.
Watch out author world I'm coming back.
