Hi everyone! -waves-. I’m Nikki Lynn Barrett, and I’m glad to be here today.
Do you hate starting over? In general? Say, a new relationship, or a new house, new job….it’s hard, isn’t it?
I can tell you that’s the same feeling I get when I start a new story. And I have plenty of past experience from starting over on all of the above to confirm that it’s the same feeling for me.
I’ve put my heart and soul into my latest release, Baby Stetson. I’ve learned about the characters, learned their traits, faults, and quirks. So now that Baby Stetson is done and about to run wild into the world, I’ve tried to find that groove with my latest efforts. It’s not that I don’t like my new story, because I do, it’s just that I have not found that groove yet. It’s like easing into a new position, like learning the ropes at the new job, or finding your way after being part of something for so long.
It’s a little scary.
Any others feel like this? Writers? Readers? What are your thoughts?
Thanks for listening to my crazy babble today 🙂
Left in a Stetson hat, on the steps of the local bed and breakfast, Avery Callimer came into the world on a wing and a prayer. Raised by loving adoptive parents, she’s never lacked for love…only the knowledge of her past. By day she works the Inn, but by night…Avery comes alive as lead singer in a band. Life was good…stable, until new guests blew into town.
Some strangers come with secrets and lies
Lucas Bennett is one such stranger. Drifting from one mess to another has left him jaded. Doesn’t matter the dramas are never his doing. Giving it one last shot to make a fresh start lands him Harmony’s Echo, Texas and smack dab in front of the tantalizing Avery. Despite his best efforts to ignore the burn Avery’s ignited within, he’s intent to keep his distance. Secrets have followed him. Secrets he doesn’t want Avery to know.
Each time they’re near the other things heat up like a brushfire on a dry Texas prairie. But maybe, after the dust settles and the smoke clears, love can bloom with a fresh start.
