March 2023 What Brooke Read
Woke up on Hoth
I went to bed last night and woke up to find I had been teleported into Star Wars and Hoth. Unlike the ice planet, there are no fun snow speeders, Wampas, or TaunTauns to ride around on. Okay, I'm glad there are no wampas, but you get my meaning.
This week marks the end of another werewolf book and the beginning of another book. I'm trying to get at least three more rough drafts done before school is out for the summer and I start working on second drafts for my books coming out next year. I won't say much unless you've paid attention to my release schedule, but there will be a man fighting for his love next year, another fighting to just find balance in his life, a little bit of a rivalry, and a cupid who isn't about to put up with a man who refuses to let her help him find love. Oh! And a mountain lion shifter getting a second chance.
I messed up last week with What Brooke Read. That'll be coming this Friday instead.
Have a great week!
Needed a Week
On the 11th, my family lost someone important to us. It's been nearly ten days and I'm still struggling, wading through the sorrow I find coming back to me in waves, usually in the mornings. That's why there wasn't a blog post last week. I needed to channel my effort into shaping words to express myself to my friends and family. I think I did okay. Friday was spent with family. There was plenty of tears but laughter as well as we all sat together. Saturday was a long day driving up into Montana for the burial, but something great came from that as well. I got to show my children a piece of their family history. They got to see where members of the family were laid to rest, were fortunate to get to see a piece of history in the way of their great great grandpa's gun collection on display in a museum, and seeing silos their great grandpa built still standing on the side of the interstate on our way to and from our destination as well as driving right over where one house their grandpa once lived in. As sad as the occasion was, it brought us all closer together as well.
Now, I'm determined to get back into the right mindset and get cracking on a Powder River Pack book.
I'll be back Friday with What Brooke Read.
Have a wonderful week.
March is starting with a bang!
They say third time is a charm. I know this all too well. Last year, I wrote a book that won't be coming for a couple of years and it took me three times. Now, I'm working on one for 2025 that's turning out the same. I'm on the third first draft of it, blending the first two into one book and liking the way it's going so far. I'm already 24k words in so that speaks for itself.
While I'm working away on this book, I'm also getting my next book ready for publishing a month from today as well as figuring out this booktube deal with videos.
I don't have much else to share with you for now. Like always, have a wonderful week!
