Wow! It’s been a while since I posted on the blog. A thousand apologies to you all. I thought once the book came out I would have more time. I’m not sure what alternate universe I was living in, but boy was I wrong.
First off, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, to each and every one of you who have expressed your love for What the Heart Wants. One of an author’s biggest fears is sharing their book with the world. People can be cruel, but if you ever want to share your stories with others, you have to grow thick skin, take a deep breath, and make the plunge.
And I did.
I have some good news and bad news to share. The good news: I began developing the plot line for Book 2. The bad news: My computer died on Wednesday. Always, ALWAYS back up your data. Make it a habit to do this at least once a week. I plan to do it daily.
But there is a light at the end of this dark tunnel. It’s looking like I will be able to recover all my files, including the plot line for book 2!
I’m currently finishing up a piece I’m writing for the IBC romance anthology coming out very soon. I also have a project I am working on with a good friend and fellow author, Amber Scott. As soon as these two projects are finished, my main focus will be on book 2.
Never fear! I am jotting notes and will continue working on the storyline. I’m hoping to have book 2 out this summer. Will keep you updated here as well as on my other social media websites.
For more timely updates, please check out the series’ fan page over on Facebook. I’ve also created a special group for those who enjoy the book. If you friend me on my Facebook account and post on my wall or send me a message that you’d like to be included in this group, I will get you added.
That’s it for me today. Off to work on my other big project. Our new house 🙂 Will be back again soon!
Keep us posted on when the second book will come out.
Yes, keep us posted on when the second book will come out. I am in suspense on what will happen next with Dylan and Heaven.
Hi Cynthia! Thanks for reading What the Heart Wants. Are we friends on Facebook? I have a secret group over there where I give more timely updates, sneak peeks, and more. If you aren’t already a part of it, friend me and I will add you.
Hey Kelli! I read your book and have to say…I cried! I’m a huge sci-fi/fantasy fanatic and a computer nerd to boot. But I have a secret romantic side, and it really touched me. When I found out you were working on a second one, I had to send you a quick message! Thanks so much for taking that step to get your book out. Every story I read gives me a little more push to finish my own book (yes, I’m a wannabe author lol). Headed to find you on Facebook, and hope to hear more about this upcoming book of your’s!
Hi Rachel! Thank you for reading What the Heart Wants. So sorry it made you cry. I am currently writing the second book, which I’m hoping to release late summer to early fall. I received your friend request on Facebook and accepted. Thanks! We have a secret group there, where I give updates, sneak peeks, and more. If you’d like to be added, send me a message. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts about the book. I love hearing from readers. Talk to you soon…
I just got this book for free from the kindle book store. I will never regret clicking buy! I fell in love with this story line as soon as I read the overview. I began this book last night and stood up till 3 this morning to finish. I’m in love with Dylan & Heaven. I’m dying to know what happens next. I’m hoping for the 2nd book before my fall college semester begins and I get swamped by school & have to neglect my kindle for 4 months. But I know you must be busy at work with this story line as it is without us fans begging for the 2nd book. So with that, I’m thanking you for the great read & letting you know you have a loyal reader patiently waiting for the the next book.
Thank you so much for contacting me. I love to hear a reader’s reaction to the story. Don’t worry. You aren’t the only one in love with Dylan & Heaven. They hold a special place in my heart, too. When do you go back to college? I’m hoping to have the book finished soon. I’m writing my butt off to get it there 🙂
Are you on Facebook? I don’t know if you’ve read any of the other comments here but we have a secret group on Facebook where I give updates on my writing progress, sneak peeks of chapters, and we have so much eye candy, it will stop your heart ~_^ If you’re interested in joining this group, simply add me as a friend on Facebook: http://facebook.com/kelli.mccracken and write on my timeline that you’d like to be added. I’ll get you in there. No worries if you aren’t interested.
Thank you again for reading the book and for contacting me. It makes my day to hear how much a reader enjoyed the book.
