Kill the Beast News!

Hello, dearest readers! Wow, it’s been forever and a day since I’ve updated you with any news about my own writing.

Let’s remedy that. ;)

Today, I shall spew forth facts about the best Beauty and the Beast retelling in the entire world (I may be slightly biased here…), Kill the Beast, and yes, it’s still coming soon!

I have been writing and rewriting this things for years now. Years. (We just won’t say how many, cause it’s embarrassing.)

But my huntress, Ro, has been quite stubborn in revealing her secrets of how she hunts the beast and her purpose in his life and her own. (I would have to write a stubborn character, wouldn’t I?)

You know, all the important things that make a book worth reading.

If you write, or draw, or create in any way, do you know how you can be just standing there, doing nothing of consequence, unaware, and an idea strikes you like a bolt of lightning?

And then your fingers fly across the page or keyboard and before you know it, you’ve written over 14,000 words and untangled the mess you were in?

No? Just me?

Thank God it finally happened!

Ro has finally found her way out of the dark and into the story of my dreams. Hurray!

And I just may have written a prequel novella, Beast Hunter, to help her get out of the mess I’d written her into. This is partially published in Hodgepodge, but now there is much, much more!

But back to Kill the Beast.

Roughly 90,000 words, this book is now looking at a 2018 release date, after my glorious editors have torn it to shreds, I’ve cried, then rewritten it. Again. (We won’t mention the 2016 release date, or the 2017 release date either…)

So the good news is, this book just may come out in my lifetime!

So what do I need from you?

All the prayers in the entire world!

I’ve never struggled with a story so much, and I’ve never questioned myself more as an author. I know I can do this, with God’s help, but I need to find the time, the determination, and the stubbornness (thank you, Ro) to persevere and make this story happen.

Thank you for listening to this author rant! I shall see you on the other side, with a lovely new book in my hands and yours!

In Him,

Michele
