Minutes have turned in to hours as I stare at my blinking cursor, struggling to find the right words. But there are no words that will make this any easier, so I’ll be direct. I’ve decided to push back the release of Irish Crown. I’ve never had to delay a book before and it’s a heart wrenching decision to make. Disappointing readers is the last thing I want to do.
I love Deaglan Kane and Eva and maybe that’s why I feel it’s important for me to trust my gut and take the time to flesh out this story further and give it the time it deserves.
I write with my heart. The characters are part of me and I live and breathe them. Even long after the last word is written they linger in the forefront of my mind until settling deep inside me, for always.
I promised myself never to release a book that wasn’t the best of me. A book that I could look back years from now and say, ‘That is all of me inside those pages.’
I can’t do that yet with Irish Crown. I want more. I need more from myself. I’m going to set it aside for a couple weeks while I work on Iron Trophy then come back to it.
For now, I won’t announce a new estimated release date, as I want to be one hundred percent certain the book is ready for all of you.
My promise to myself is my promise to you that when you pick up one of my books, it will always be ‘the best of me.’
