But getting there is tough.
I had planned on having Immoral: The Cage Sessions Book 4 ready by this week, but a series of incidents have delayed things.
I’m still finishing up Tattered Angel, my story for the Seven Dirty Sins bundle.
I’m going to be frightfully honest with you. I get too wrapped up in my characters’ lives. Tattered Angel is a very emotional story. More emotional than I had even planned it to be. I become Damien Cage when I write it.
So much so that I get into a funk and can’t snap out of it. Then I need a day or two to regroup and get back into writing.
I’m almost done with it, but it’s put me way behind with The Cage Sessions. For that, I apologize.
The only thing I can assure you is that you’re going to get a lot of Damien Cage in August. My plan now is August 1 for Immoral: The Cage Sessions Book 4. Then August 13 for the prequel Tattered Angel in the Seven Dirty Sins bundle. Then August 20 for the fifth (and likely final) book of The Cage Sessions. (Although I’m planning for the people to live on in future series. Eventually I want a world where everyone is somehow linked together… Annika and Damien, Jasmine, Isabella, Caden and Kiri, Tristan and Meghan, Dan, Nikki, Marisol and Devlin.)
I don’t know if I’m a good writer or not. I don’t really care if I don’t get every word right or use proper grammar. In terms of writing, all I care about is creating real characters that readers like you can love. Who leap off the page with real struggles, emotions, ups and downs. I’ve grown to love Damien, Annika, Isabella, Jasmine, and M********a (who you haven’t met yet.) Right now, I feel like I never want to stop writing about them because they mean so much to me. All I ever try to do is do right by them.
And doing right by them means taking the time to tell the story right. If there’s one thing you can always be assured you’re getting from me, it’s a story from my heart with people who (I hope) are as real to you as they are to me.
So please stay patient. The forecast for August in Miami is lots of hot steamy nights, a couple of vicious thunderstorms with lots of lightning, and days of sunny passion.
As always, thank you.
