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
I’m getting ready to log off for the night, but I wanted to check in here first. I got in a lot of writing this weekend and I’m SOOO close to finishing A Killer Past. If you want to add it to your TBR list, you can find it here on Goodreads. This book has a bit of what I’m used to writing, but it will also be something totally different too. I can’t wait for everyone to read it.
Here’s the blurb for all of you who aren’t able to link up right away:
Copyright Ivy Love, 2018
Agent Quinn Winters has worked hard to get where she is today. She is an elite FBI profiler, as well as a submissive. She tries to balance the two, but through the years, she’s always put her career first. Except, when it comes to her best friend Agent Willow Mavros. They have been best friends since college and know each other better than anyone else.
A new case has come across Agent Winters and her team’s desk. A case that threatens to break them all. As she and her team get deeper into the case, every decision she makes will not only affect her career but her submissive lifestyle as well.
If she can’t figure out who the killer is in time, she could lose one of her teammates forever.
I can’t wait to show everyone this book and the books after. I’ve been working hard and I have a lot of good stuff to share with everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend and don’t be afraid of Monday, we are going to kick this week’s butt!
I’m back. Two days in a row. I said I wanted to reach out to you more and I do. Plus, I used to blog all the time and I do miss it. I enjoy writing in general. Sometimes it’s a way for me to just lose myself from a day. Other times it’s a way to release the crazy thoughts from my head and other days it’s just because. I’ve always loved writing even before I pushed publish on my first book. My journals and diaries were my best friends. I don’t know about you, but my childhood diaries were where I could be honest about how I felt about everything. It was the one place I knew I could never be judged, because I was the only person who would ever read it.
I realize it isn’t the same now. Every time I realize a book, I’ll be judged on the contents, but as long as I’m happy with what I’m sharing then that is all that matters in the end.
That’s all for now. Time for research, writing and then sleep. Until later.
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.
