Such beautiful words when used in the dreamworld. They make the magical, the impossible, the reach-for-the-stars ideas seem close enough to touch.
And yet, they are. Touchable.
We just have to bridge the gap between fantasy and reality.
It’s what an author does. In our heads, characters come to vivid life, face insurmountable obstacles, and go on grand adventures…all in the creator’s world of what if.
How has what if impacted us (Kat & Stone) in our real lives?
If you haven’t heard from us in a couple of months, it’s because we’ve taken a short hiatus from writing to make a two-decade what if of ours a reality.
We moved to the other side of the world. Got on a plane with two checked bags and two carryons apiece (laptops in tow, of course) and traveled across the ocean to reside for the rest of our days on a different continent. Simplified. Free.
Want a hint of where we’ve landed?
It’s one of the handful of locales mentioned in Rule Breaker 😀
Where does that leave us on the writing front?
More Time? More Books…
A Foray into Nonfiction
One of the reasons we shucked nearly all of our material possessions and our former lives is those anchors weighed us down with time-sucks. Our new life still requires us to earn a living, but we have less living to support…and more time to do the living. A life rooted in minimalism.
The journey has been enlightening, is still ongoing, and is one we’ve begun documenting in our first upcoming nonfiction book, The Zenful Life.
Two Upcoming 2017 Romance Novels
Our greatest joy? Writing those adventuresome romance stories inspired in the land of what if.
We’re also diving back in to two of our favorite series this year. Lawbreaker is coming soon, the third standalone romance in our Unbreakable series. Shortly after that, will come the long-awaited third book in the Highland Legends series, Born of Mist and Legend.
We look forward to sharing more of our stories with you, forged from the amazing world of what if…
What are your what ifs...?
