… or are they??

March, 4, 2014 – As I was finalizing To Dream for the editor, we realized the manuscript was way too big. As in just under 168K words. It always had been huge but now the decision had to be made. I could cut it down and toss what I cut. Or I could cut off the end and start another book. And thus we have Perchance.
In my head, when I started this series, I had just the three books. But I started thinking about doing a fourth, one with this title, but I just could not come up with anything to fit it. And after the cut was made and I had this 56K+ hunk of words, I took a look at it and realized, I had it right there in front of me. I love it when that happens.
January 2016 – To Dream is released and the editors (both internal and external) are silenced. Romance books are the bread and butter of publishers and writers. I would like to get one or two Butch Girl books out before I do Perchance. But I like this book too much to just let it sit there neglected.
Perchance is going to be a romantic science fiction. It is going to be about kismet and serendipity in both love and aliens. It will be sweet as sugar and bitter as lemon soaked pain. And it is going to be about the Enixi finally getting their shit together. Or not. Probably both.
