I have something new in the works. If you follow me on Facebook, you might have seen me talking a bit about it. I joined four other authors in a group project. It’s a novella collection with five novellas, one by each one us. The novellas are centered around a common theme and take place around the holidays starting with Halloween and moving on to Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, and Valentine’s Day. They are all sweet, romantic LDS stories with different settings and characters with varied backgrounds. My awesome co-authors are Amber Gilchrist, Cheryl Leigh, Sally Johnson, and Stephanie Connelley Worlton (click on their names for the links to Amazon and Goodreads to find out more about them). I’m really excited about this project, which will be published just in time for Halloween later this year.
My novella takes place around the Christmas season and it’s set in Manhattan. This was really different for me since my other stories are set in Portugal. In the process of writing it, I’ve fallen in love with Central Park:
Thanks to the internet and thanks to awesome authors in writing groups I belong to, I’ve been able to research Central Park and the Upper East and West sides of Manhattan, and it’s now a place of my bucket list of destinations to visit. This is the main setting of my novella, and the main characters are Chris Wyman, a New Yorker, and Luciana Andrade, a girl from Lisbon, Portugal.
And today I have a sneak peek teaser, the first one of more to come:
Still working on a title for my story and for the novella collection. We’ll have more updates and sneak peeks in the upcoming months so be sure to follow us on Facebook (click on the names for the links):
We’re very excited with this project and hope you’ll be looking forward to it too!
