Intertwined Series | Raveled Update

Image
Hello, all!

It's August! I thought now might be a good time to give an update on how Raveled, the last installment in the Intertwined Series, is coming along, sooooo ... without further ado, I have good news and bad news. The good news is I'm loving the second draft so far! It's exciting and intense and much better than the first draft, I can promise you that. The bad news is I won't be able to release the final draft by fall of this year, or even this year at all. It seems I vastly underestimated just how big of a beast this story really is, and being that it's the final book in the series, I can't bring myself to publish it until I'm absolutely one hundred percent happy with it. 

There's a lot to wrap up and a lot to bring together, and, honestly, this book is really two stories in one, not just because of how long it is, but because, for those of you who've read the first two books, Intertwined and Tethered, you know exactly what I mean when I say …

The Jenn Marie Story | An Author's Process

Check it out! Last week on the Wandering But Not Lost Podcast, I sat down with one of my favorite people, Matt Emerson, and chatted about my day to day life as an author, what inspires me and how quitting my day job to become a full time author changed my life in ways I never thought possible. 

We also talk about my travels and what inspired the setting for my Intertwined series. Listen to the full interview above! And for all you fellow travelers out there, check out Matt's travel tips and insights at http://wanderingbutnotlost.com/

Intertwined Series: Raveled Coming Soon!

I know it's been sooooo long since my last post, but I have great news! I'm currently editing the very long, very massive first draft of Raveled, book 3 (and final installment) in the Intertwined Series, and will soon release the blurb and cover reveal! Yay! 

I had such a blast writing this story! Like every time I embark upon a new adventure with my characters, it's exciting and new and challenging and leaden with so much emotion at times, I overwhelm myself to the point that I can't finish the darn thing! This one especially hit me hard. I've never had to wrap up a series before. It was brutal! I still have many edits ahead, and possible revisions depending on what my editor comes back with, but we're on schedule for a fall release date and I can't wait to share the first chapter once I have it hammered out.

Stay tuned for updates and announcements, coming later this month! For now, back to editing!

Intertwined Series: Book 3 Title Reveal!

Image
I'm so excited to announce the title of Book 3 in the Intertwined Series, the final installment in my Young Adult Paranormal Romance trilogy.

I absolutely LOVE this title! 
Why you might ask?
Because the word Raveled means to both tangle and untangle. Which is the perfect description for book 3.

Ravel is an interesting verb, in that it can mean both "tangle" and "untangle." So if you work to ravel yarn into a neat ball, your cat may come along and try to ravel it again. How can a word mean both one thing and its opposite? In the case of ravel, the answer is sewing: As threads come unwoven from a cloth, they become tangled on each other. Since untangling is never far from tangling, ravel covers both meanings. https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/ravel

I can't wait to see this title on the book cover! And I can't wait to share it with you! Raveled is slated for release fall of 2018, hopefully sooner. As this is the final installment in the series, there are man…

TETHERED: Chapter One Teaser!

CHAPTER 1—ADAM

A six-inch blade gleamed in the trick of light, the hilt carved in the shape of two snakes wrapped around each other so that their heads formed an S on either side of the serrated steel. A deadly weapon for more reasons than one.
First—this blade wasn’t just any blade. This was the very dagger Josephine had plunged into her chest back in 1905. The very blade that had ripped her delicate flesh apart and taken the life that Braden—I—hadn’t been able to save. The very dagger Josephine had wielded in order to seal the curse that would resurrect us. Save us.
Save me.
Second—this blade was no longer where it should be. It wasn’t in the depths of an underground tunnel like it had been this morning. It was no longer lodged inside Josephine’s chest like it had been for the past century. The dagger was free—to be wielded, to be taken, to be used against her, but worst of all, to destroy her. Josephine would never forgive herself. She was giving the dagger too much power. Power to stri…
