Uh. Oh.

So ... I have a dilemma. I'm roughly a third to halfway done with the third book in The Ever Series, which is good news. The problem is that I've gotten to a point in the story where I'm thinking: "Uh oh. I need to go back and rewrite it." It's not so much the story itself that's giving me trouble; it's the timeline.

Usually if I start rewriting, I can tell if that's going to "fix" the problem. I've done this before, but it's always kind of a "hold my breath/is this gonna work?" plunge to take.

Cross your fingers for me! Will post an update soon.


PS -- Looking at the online proofs of the paperback covers. For Ever's is beautiful, but Never's is yummy. Will hold them in my hands soon. Stay tuned!


  1. Oh no! I hope the revising works out C.J. But I think whatever happens the third book will come out amazing! You're so motivated and that just makes me want to be just as motivated! I can't wait to find out more! Good Luck! :)

    1. Hey Hillary! Thanks! Sorry I've been so bad about getting back to you. This week has been a little chaotic! I started another story that has nothing to do with The Ever Series. Big mistake! I started working on that instead of the third book. Silly me. But I'm still working on the rewriting, and I *think* it's working out. How's everything in your world? Permit or license yet? Are you getting any writing done? I'll let you know when I get the paperbacks finalized. Have a great weekend!!! CJ

    2. Hi C.J. You're definitely not the only one whose had a chaotic week. I just started school last week and things were definitely chaotic for me too. Ooooh new story! I can't wait to hear more about that! :) I hope it's working out this time around. No, I don't have either. The handbook is definitely proving to be harder to read through, but just because my break is over doesn't mean I'm giving up. I'm still going to study that booklet no matter what. And I'm currently working on the main and supporting character profiles. It's hard bringing them to life when they aren't exactly like you :P I hope you have a great weekend as well! ^_^
