I will be writing The Clock Shop Mystery Series for Berkley Prime Crime under the pseudonym Julianne Holmes. I am under contract for three books. The first one will be released in 2015, and is due this September.
To say that this is a dream come true is an understatement. And even though the release date is a long way away, I wanted to share this with all of you. On Live to Write/Write to Live, we all talk about our writing journeys, and this is an important part of the conversation. On Wicked Cozy Authors, my other five collaborators are all in different stages of their series being written, submitted, edited, released. I want to let everyone know I am on the same path, and so blessed to have these amazing women (and others) teach me as they learn.
So, day to day, how does this change my life? Right now, not a lot. I have a project with a deadline, which is new. But writing is part of my life, and I am thrilled at the opportunity of writing this cozy series. THRILLED. I will still have all the other parts of my life in full gear, so balance will be interesting. But then again, as writers, isn’t balance always interesting?
I am really looking forward to celebrating the release of the first book in 2015 with all of you. Until then, Julianne Holmes and I will be blogging, sharing, and enjoying the journey.
