Please. Please read it.
I’ve been keeping pretty hush-hush on my current writing project because I wasn’t sure when I was supposed to talk about it. It’s one of those things where you have to figure out how long to ride the promotional wave of your current book before mentioning another. (Until I realized that promotion for your current book never stops.) I figured that now that I’m safely out of the Top 100 in the Kindle store, it’s time to discuss what I have planned for you next.
True to S. Walden form, I am currently writing yet another New Adult book that deals with high school social issues. It’s an interesting hybrid of standard-NA-love-story meets the controversy that this completely inappropriate author likes to write. So unlike Going Under, which many people mistakenly thought was a romance novel (no, it is primarily about guilt, revenge, and forgiveness), I am actually currently writing for you a romance novel. And just because I want to, I’m going to throw up some language that’s still in the working stage but will give you a better understanding of this unconventional love story.
Yes! It’s the Too Good series. My first one. But don’t worry. As I’ve mentioned before, I do a lot of market research, so I’m aware that readers are fed up with cliffhangers and the like. I will not end Book 1 with a relationship cliffhanger.
Heroine and Hero
Cadence Miller: 17-year-old high school senior
(she turns 18 in the book, good grief)
Mark Connelly: 28-year-old high school calculus teacher
But there is one bright spot in the hell that’s become her life: Mark Connelly, her very cute, very off-limits 28-year-old calculus teacher. She falls hard for him—a ridiculous schoolgirl crush headed nowhere. She can’t help it. He’s the only good thing at Crestview High. She doesn’t expect him to reciprocate her feelings. How inappropriate, right? But he does. And he shows her.
And that’s when her life goes from bad to good.
(This is a New Adult fiction book that contains explicit sexual situations and some language.)
“Well, I looked up the age of consent in Georgia. It’s sixteen,” I replied.
“Summer, they don’t do it until she’s eighteen, right?”
“Oh, Marisa. Don’t you want to wait and find out?”
Not revealing the cover yet. Expected publication date for Good is Fall 2013, but I'm working to change that. I think it'll be earlier. You can add the book to your "To Read" shelf on goodreads. Go here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17801215-good
And that's that. Tell me what you think? Am I completely out of my mind?
