Tessa is returning! I’ve spent a lot of time over the last year revising the entire series. Instead of three novellas, her story will be told in one full sized novel.
Decadent Publishing has been amazingly supportive throughout this process. See, I’m a different author now than I was 4 years ago when I wrote CONTAGION. I got better *face palm* and wanted to polish the previous stories. Lisa Omstead was on board from the beginning, giving me back the rights to the books so I could make any changes/updates I wanted. Love. Her.
I’ve made some changes to emphasize Tessa and Matthew’s love story while they struggle to survive Greer and Leandra. I can’t write in third person point of view anymore. So instead of, “She turned around smelling ogres before they arrived” you now get “I caught the nauseating stench of ogre before any of them could be seen.”
I am working with another publisher on this. I won’t announce until a contract is signed. If they decline, I’ll self publish the book. Either way, Tessa’s story will be told, in full, this year.
Thank you so much for your patience on this. I had a rough 2013, delaying these revisions by 8 months. I moved to another state, back in South Florida, and reopened my psychology practice. It took a lot out of me, and still demands half my brain every day. But only half, my characters dance in the rest!
