Fact and Fiction
The book I am currently working on is the last installment of Welcome to College. It will hopefully be out in about a month with a book I had called Breaking the Billionaire and a rewritten version of the story I posted on this blog coming out next.
I'm finding it difficult to delve into my past again because now that I've been writing fiction for awhile, I realize that real life doesn't actually follow a nice plot outline. Things that were meaningful to me at the time, might not be as interesting for somebody reading it now. This is also a period with a lot of confusion in my mind about the whole feminization thing. I have realized that what happened in college was pretty awesome, but I also am unsure how to proceed going forward. There's some definite pain in the book, but also joy.
I also know I'm going to have a very harsh critic when Deanna reads my writeup of her bachelorette party and wedding. I'm proud of the first nine Welcome to College books and I hope that this absolutely last book in the series lives up to the others. It's just weird to write from a personal place again.
By the way, which cover do you like? I can't decide myself.
Sales have been booming for me in the UK and outside the US for some reason. I've already set my all-time UK sales mark by almost 10% and I've hit my all-time best for non-UK or US countries. The problem is my sales in America are sucking. I will probably have my lowest sales totals in the US since July and that's counting borrows as sales. If I don't do that, it'll be my lowest month since July. I guess that makes it a wash, but I'm very confused by this sudden change.
