Any of you patient people who are my fans know that I've been away from this site for a while. I started a business, formatting books, and it took off WAY faster than I anticipated. Were I doing this alone, it would be a full time job and I'd be making a living. Fortunately, I'm not doing this alone, but instead have three other amazing formatters to team up with. We're at www.emtippettsbookdesigns.com.
These last couple of weeks we turned an important corner. I'll still likely be up into the wee hours of the morning a lot of nights and such, but the business has fallen into a rhythm that is sustainable, and I can finally pry my hands from their death grip on the proverbial wheel and return my attentions to other important things, like this site.
Looking over all my online presence, here's what I'm going to do. I won't divide my blogging between here and www.emilymah.com anymore. Emily Mah is who I began my blogging life as, and that's where I'll stay with the regular updates about random stuff like my art and life and writing mentality and all that, so for anyone interested in this kind of thing, I'll direct you over to www.emilymah.com to follow that blog. This blog, in the meantime, is going to become just a news update feed for my E.M. Tippetts career, with information about what I'm working on now and what's next.
So in the spirit of that, I can announce that the next book that I'll release has the working title, A Safe Space, and is another Fairytale spinoff. This one follows the life of Lizzie Warner, Kyra Armijo's roommate. It's another child-star coming of age piece, and I'm releasing this one next because it grabbed hold of me and wouldn't let go. Lizzie's the former child star who never had time for a love life or even a date, but she's working on a prime time drama series that will require her to do things like kiss her co-stars, and she is so not ready for that.
Enter Devon, a personal trainer at her gym with smoking hot looks, a perfect body, and a massive ego. He doesn't do relationships or even second dates.
Part of this will be predictable to you: He seems to have a thing for Lizzie, as the bad boy willing to be good for her. But I'm not interested in the cliche plot. I never am. Right now the book is to the point where the characters are alive and talking and the scene order is all falling into place. I plan to get it to the editor in a couple of weeks. I think you guys will like Lizzie and Devon! I certainly do!
Meanwhile, hello again. My posts won't be frequent, but I'll draft one whenever I've got news.
