OMG! We did it! Book 2 exists!! I wanted it to exist. I hoped it would exist. Now it actually does!! I REPEAT O.M.G!
I imagine I’ll always say this, but this book (Astoria’s Secret) is pretty special to me.
I finished it post quitting my full-time job. My partner in crime also ended up finishing this post leaving their full-time job. At no point did the book listen to anything I had planned, and the kiddo created the
title and a new character (that was never part of the plan).
My characters never listen to me, this is not anything new, but they went so rogue this time that I had to drop my original title. They had some feels this go around, and I figured it was best just to let them have them.
There are intricately laid developments that pull from book one in the most beautiful of ways. The plot was so much fun to write, and I got to watch all my MC kiddos grow up a bit. It pulls at my heartstrings.
I’m so grateful and blessed to be on this journey.
So, if you’re still reading this, thank you. Thank you if you’ve read book 1 or if you returned for book 2. You’re helping me fuel a dream I’ve wanted since I was 13. That’s truly something special. Also, 13 year old me would be SO proud right now.
