Click Date Repeat

These days, finding love online is as commonplace as ordering that coveted sweater. But back in 2003, the whole concept of internet dating was still quite new, with a stigma attached to it that meant those who were willing to test the waters faced a fair amount of skepticism from friends and family.

Such is the case for Chloe Thompson, a restless 20-something tired of the typical dating scene and curious about what she might find inside her parents’ computer. With two serious but failed relationships behind her, Chloe isn’t even entirely sure what she’s looking for. She…

Title: Click. Date. Repeat. Again

Series: Click. Date. Repeat. Series

Genre: Women’s Fiction

Release Date: April 19th, 2017

 

Never in her wildest dreams would Jess Mason ever imagine herself being a part of the online dating hype. Yet here she is smack-dab in the middle of it all. And she’s dated her fair share of online crazies to be a new connoisseur of all the weirdos out in the cyber world. After a slew of bad dates and pussy (cat that is) pictures, Jess knows that she needs to finally commit to something—or someone. And suddenly there he is, a man she can actually imagine herself with.

But when Jess is faced with an undeniable attraction to a handsome, unavailable co-worker, she’s conflicted about continuing her quest for Mr. Right-At-Her-Fingertips. Now, it’s feast or famine—and she’s not willing to starve. She certainly can’t have both–that wouldn’t be right. After all, that’s the “old Jess.” The new Jess is ready to start clicking with someone special and make a real love connection.

**This book is a spinoff of Click Date Repeat, so it can be read as a standalone.**

Click Date Repeat Again, Personal Tidbits

Hodgepodge

I haven’t posted anything personal or anything about my writing status in a LONG while, so…

What’s the status of Click Date Repeat Again?

The answer to this question could be a book itself, so I’ll give you the novella version instead.

As some of you know, I’ve been working on CDR2 since the summer of 2015. No, 2015 is not a typo. I outlined it back then, but didn’t start writing it until the fall when my boys went back to school. Things started out okay, but to be honest, I wasn’t feeling as excited about this one as I did when I wrote my first two books, so progress was slow. To make matters worse, I took a break from the manuscript to work on a different novel during NaNoWriMo 2015. (That novel was SPIN, a YA suspense, which is now sitting, unfinished. Just waiting for me to get back to it…) When NaNoWriMo 2015 ended, I went back to CDR2, hoping to finish it by late spring, which turned into late summer, which turned into fall. Then I took another break from it to work on something else during NaNoWriMo 2016. (No, it wasn’t SPIN. It was something completely new called By the Time We’re Forty, a women’s fiction novel, which is now sitting, unfinished. Just waiting for me to get back to it… See a pattern?) So now, with only three weeks left in 2016, I’m still not done with CDR2. *sigh*

Am I sad? A little. Am I frustrated? Yes. Do I feel antsy to get it done? Yes! But you know what? I refuse to put out something that I forced myself to finish or something that I’m not 100% proud of. So I’ve only been working on it when I feel inspired to work on it, and I have no idea when it will be ready for publication. And I’m okay with that.

On the bright side, I’ve learned some important things from my experience with CDR2. One, never publicly commit to writing something unless I’ve started it and feel passion for it in my bones. Two, don’t make promises (even to myself) about when a project will be finished until the first draft is complete. Three, I need to STOP comparing my writing pace and output with the pace and output of others.

What else have I been up to besides working on three different WIPs?

Focusing on my kids – My boys are in 6th and 3rd grade and participate in several extracurricular activities including year-round soccer, gymnastics and piano. My 4-year-old daughter was supposed to go to preschool two days a week this year, but I had a change of heart at the last minute and decided to keep her home. She’s my last child and the only one I’ve had to opportunity to stay home with, so I wanted to make the most of it. We do ‘school’ for about an hour most mornings, go to the YMCA three days a week, and she participates in tap dance/gymnastics and swimming. I’ve tried to get at least an hour of writing in every afternoon, but that often doesn’t happen, so I have to wait until the kids are in bed (and I’m ready to pass out).

Reading – I started out with a goal of 60 books for my 2016 Goodreads reading challenge, but I ended up reducing it to 40. Thirty-eight down, two to go! Some of my favorite reads this year include Emancipation by Jo Michaels, The Divided by Bria Starr, A Woman Named Sellers by Sarah L. King, An Unforgivable Love Story by B.L. Berry, Bright Side and Gus by Kim Holden, Try Not to Breathe by Holly Seddon, and Brother by Ania Ahlborn.

Wasting time on social media – As an author, maintaining a presence on social media is necessary for various reasons. However, sometimes it’s a struggle to get in and get out. I really need to get better at minimizing the amount of time I spend on all platforms!

Book signings – I attended four as a signing author. Those were in Cedar Falls, Iowa, North Lake, Iowa, Madison, Wisconsin, and Phoenix, Arizona. I also attended the Scripted Social in Des Moines, Iowa, as a volunteer.

Vacation – My family spent Thanksgiving in Hawaii this year. Best vacation of my life! Not gonna lie…I wanted to stay there forever. I do believe I was either a hula dancer or a beach bum in a past life. 😉

Click Date Repeat Again, Personal Tidbits

What have I been up to lately?

It’s been about a month since my last post, so it’s time for some updates . . .

Click Date Repeat Again

CDR #2 is the main reason for my scarcity here and on other social media lately. My plan for June was to buckle down, finish it up, and send it off to my editor on the 24th. Things were moving along nicely until my keyboard conked out, no longer allowing me to type several letters! After hours of troubleshooting, I ordered a new one. Then I took a few days off because it’s extremely difficult to write without the letter A! Thanks to Amazon Prime, I had my new keyboard within 48 hours. However, the day after it arrived, I went to the Scripted Social Author Event in Des Moines, Iowa. Even though I was not a signing author at the event, I had the privilege of being a volunteer. And guess who I got to help with her line…KIM HOLDEN! AHHHH! It was such an AMAZING weekend! When I returned from Iowa, I had a few days to work, and then we welcomed house guests who stayed with us for a several days. Long story short, I ended up sending only about 75% of the book off to my editor on the 24th. But now that the 4th of July weekend is over and the guests are gone, I’ll be wrapping the book up this week.

IMG_20160706_233257751
This is the first 75% of CDR. I printed it out to reread/edit while I waited for my new keyboard.

Despite my week-long setback, I’m still planning to publish CDR #2 at the end of August. Obviously this could change, but I’m going to do my best to make sure it doesn’t! The cover is being designed this month, so watch for the reveal near the end of July or beginning of August.

IMG_20160706_233336945
This is what the final 25% looked like before I started working on finishing it up a couple of days ago. I’m making steady progress once again . . .

New Family Members

As some of you know, we said goodbye to our 17-year-old cat (Hal) a few months ago. Hal was also known as Hugh in Click Date Repeat. 🙂 My husband asked immediately after Hal was gone if I wanted to get a new cat but I just wasn’t ready. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago when my kids and I went to the local pet store to purchase a sponge for the hermit crabs. To our surprise, they recently added a new area for cats from local humane societies and shelters. One thing led to another, and . . . we ended up adopting two kittens! Eric (black and white) is 1 year old, and Sebastian is 7 weeks.

Holiday Fun with Family and Friends

It was so much fun spending time with my sister and her kids over the 4th of July weekend! We saw a movie, went to the local 4th of July parade and carnival, celebrated my niece’s birthday, spent some time enjoying a local lake (kayaking, paddle boarding and pedal boating), attended a party, and viewed an awesome fireworks display. Talk about a jam-packed weekend . . .

Book Reviews & Ask KJ

In light of my push to complete Click Date Repeat Again, I’ve had to sacrifice more than just a consistent social media presence. I’m now eight books behind schedule for 2016, and I only expect that number to grow. I do plan to spend a couple of weeks in August getting caught up, but I’m not sure that I’ll have time to write the reviews right away. I will eventually get back to posting at least two reviews a month though. I just can’t promise when.

As for Ask KJ, for which I planned to write a monthly post, that too will return. I’m just not sure when…

Until next time, friends! 🙂
