Look, I was going to let Smoky Lynx write this post, but she was going in a little hard on Rachel Hollis who also has a book out today. It's probably already sold out. We, on the other hand, have plenty of copies available!
So, today's the day! Spring: An Ermahgerd Merstery hits those digital shelves and I'm pretty excited about it. Turns out, the excitement, nerves, and anticipation never goes away. That's kind of my natural state, so I don't know why I thought it would be different when it came to co-writing and publishing books.
So, Spring. Our writing process is a little different than most for two reasons. We write together and we're both idea factories. When I say we write together, I mean it. We don't split up the chapters, work on it separately, and send it back and forth. We are in the same room, sometimes for twelve hours or so, working together. And it is a blast. Now, being an idea factory means one of us will come in and say, "You know what's a funny name? Pierre Eclair." Within an hour, he is a fully formed character that we MUST introduce and find someone (already found them) to be him in pictures because we came up with a hilarious story line for him. While working on Fall, and even Winter, that was no biggie. We find a way to weave them in and we're finished. The back half of a mystery series is different, y'all. You can't just go adding characters willy nilly because you have to wrap the actual story. The Kimmy story. The Carl story. So, we had to reign ourselves in just a teensy bit on this one. The good news is, Pierre Eclair is alive and well in our hearts, our minds, and our story board. You WILL be seeing much more of him. Because the upside of being an idea factory is, you always have something to work on. We have nine Lynx & LeRouxniverse books on our current story board. Nine...wait, I just remembered another one. Ten. We have ten. And they're all super fun.
If you're looking for ridiculous, if you love silly, if you like a good mystery, if heartwarming is your jam, even if you only exclusively read books featuring clowns, carnivals, and/or rodeos, we got you. An Ermahgerd Merstery is somehow all of those things. So, sure, you can pick up a book from a big name author who has already stole, I mean, sold so many books she's lost count, or you could give something new and weird a shot.
