Two Days Until Release Day

There are only two days left until this book releases.  I am SO excited, but I’m also kind of terrified.  Like, to the point I didn’t give this book to anyone.  I am ready for the fallout of it, but I think the fear is two-fold.  The first part is not having released something in so long and the other part is that it’s something very different than what I usually write.  Yes, it has romance in it and yes it is a standalone, but it’s on a completely separate path then what people are used to with me.  I like that I can surprise people with what I write.  I like that I write what is in my head and what I want to write, but it is also terrifying.

I’m proud of what I’ve written, but there is always the worry and anxiety when I release a book, because every time I put something out, I’m putting a little piece of myself out into the world.

I’m not sure if that makes sense, if any of this makes sense, ha.  As release day gets close, I tend to babble.  I get anxious and just ramble about everything in my head.  At any rate, I’m VERY excited for everyone to read this book.  As the days tick off, I’ll be waiting anxiously and probably making more swag, hehe.

I’m also having a release day party on Facebook, you can find the link to the event, here. Come play, it will be fun.  Now, I’m going to go worry/think/be excited in my head, ha!  Have a wonderful rest of your day <3

It’s been a while

Hi everyone!

I’m sorry it’s been a while, real life came in and decided to take over as it does sometimes.  But, I’m still here.  Since I’ve been gone, I’ve had the chance to see my cover and it’s AMAZING! I love it and can’t wait to share it on the 28th!  I’ve also been to my sisters graduation and my first Harry Styles concert as well, haha. It’s been an interesting few weeks.

Now I’m in the home stretch of putting this book together and I’m trying to spend every minute I can into it, making it perfect.  I haven’t put out a book in such a long time, my nerves are getting the best of me.  But, I’ll be ready!

This week, is edits/re-writes and teaser pull-outs.  I’m so excited!  It’s going to be a good week 🙂

Alright I’m off to get work done, so I can get writing done.  Have a wonderful day!

Love, Ivy.

I’m so excited!

Hello everyone!

Today I spent the day working.  Now, tonight I get to put together a timeline for the release of A Killer Past. I’m so excited to release this book and can’t wait to share it with all of you.  I’ll be putting details out on Goodreads and will be doing a cover reveal as well!

Soon, I’ll be posting the date of the release too.  I am so excited about this book. I have been excited about all my books, but this one has a different kind of excitement.  A kind of a nervous/anxious/worried excitement.  I’ve been researching and trying to get this book just right and I’m hoping I’ve succeeded.

Anyways, I’m just popping in to tell you to keep watching this because the news is coming!

Love, Ivy

Thoughts on writing

Hello again!

I have been stupid busy at work the past week, which means I don’t have as much time as I want to write.  I know I need to work right now, it’s how I make a living.  My writing doesn’t bring in enough right now and I’m okay with that, I really am.  I write, because I love writing.  I write because I have a million stories in my head that I want to get out.  I have a great group of people that enjoy my books and one day if it grows, I’ll be okay with that too.

But, what I’m not okay with is how I am always comparing myself to everyone else.  I watch as other authors are putting out book after book after book and I just can’t and haven’t.  It’s frustrating that I  have these stories that are just sitting on my desktop in progress and it’s taking forever to finish them.  It’s frustrating that I’m so close to finishing A Killer Past and I just can’t get there.  I have moments where I think I should just end the story, but I know if I do I’ll disappoint myself and my readers.  It’s a constant battle with myself to remember that I am me.  I can only go as fast as my life allows.  I don’t want to disappoint people, but I also don’t want to disappoint myself by putting out something that I am not proud of.

Those are my thoughts for today, happy Sunday <3

Love, Ivy

 

Daily Blog Post

Hello World!

As I mentioned on Facebook, I’m going to try and start being more active here.  Last night I was writing and came up with some ideas, but I wanted to get your thoughts on it.  As most of you know I write romance and a lot of dark reads.  I cannot wait to share my next book with you because I’ve been doing some research and it’s going to be killer.

At any rate, what I’m going to be transitioning into is possibly true crime and fictional serial killer with a twist.  I don’t think I’ll abandon romance completely, but I’ve always been intrigued by the way people think and why people act the way they do and ultimately why they do what they do.  My next book does have romance in it, so don’t worry, but it is definitely going to have a thriller aspect to it too.

My question this time is for those that read me now, would you still read what I put out, if I were to change genres?  I understand true crime is a totally different genre.  But, if I were to write something with a killer, would that interest you or no?  I want to hear your opinions because that really helps me out.

I know I need to finish a few other things first, but that is the direction I would like to go, so let me know in the comments.

Love, Ivy
