Book 3 Update - Ambrosia Shore

I know some of you are wondering when Ambrosia Shore (the third book in The Water Keepers) is coming out, so I thought I would post a quick update. Right now I can only estimate, but my goal is to be finished by the end of April or beginning of May. This is just a guess. If I get it done sooner, you will be the first to know!!

I think I might even have a cover to reveal to you soon (I have a few designs all ready to go, but for some reason I just can't make up my mind).

I also have a new year's resolution to have Book 4 out before the end of the year. I definitely got behind last year when I moved out of state for my husband's job. I kind of had writers block for a few months while trying to adjust. To be honest, if I hadn't moved, most likely the third book would have been done by now. I cringe just thinking about it! But now that my life is back to mostly normal again, the writing is coming along much faster! Oh yeah! I just can't wait to get the rest if this story that I love finally down in words for you all to enjoy with me.

I might be a little "radio silent" for the next month or so, but if you don't hear from me, just know that it's because I am WRITING!

    1. How many books are there going to be in the series? They are absolutely amazing and I almost don't want the series to end but I want to know what happens between Rayne and Sadie! :)

    2. Hi, I'm so happy you love the series! Right now I think there will be five books, but that could always change. There will definitely at least be four.

    3. Oh cool thanks! Do you think there will be a box set released on Amazon because it would be easier to store them on my Kindle as a box set! I will also write a review of them on Amazon for you - definitely 5 star! I am Lily (teen) on Amazon, if you would like to read it :)

      Delete
    4. A review would be awesome!!! I would love to read it. Good reviews really do make a difference, and I know for me it means a lot that you would take the time to write one! I am definitely thinking about a box set. I just don't know if I should wait until the entire series is complete, or maybe do a set with the first three books when I release book 3.

    5. As much as I'd hate it, I'd probably prefer to wait for a completed box set...
      Thanks for replying :)

  10. I absolutely loved your story plot! It is very original and unique. Your books inspire me to Wright my own someday. I am 15 and have read a lot of YA books, but this series is very unique,like I said, and totally addicting it was very hard to put down. I love how the story gets even better just when you think it can't! It is very unpredictable and kept me on my toes the whole way. I also love amount of detail you put into each scene, I have a very clear image in my mind of the scene and the characters. I really CANNOT WAIT for the next one :) How many books do you plan on having in this series? Well, I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your books!

    2. Yeah I finally read it! (I read very fast) It took me about the whole day to read, and it was my favorite one! She and Rayne are adorable together. I don't get how somebody can be such an amazing writer like you!I LOVE RAYNE STEVENS. Sorry haha but he's so sweet. How many more books will there be after this one? I can't wait for the next one! (If there is one) Keep writing because you have talent. Thanks also for being active on your blog, I feel like I'm talking to a famous person.
      Lots of love,
      Kayla:)
      P.S.-I love when Rayne and Sadie are alone together.
      P.P.S-If you ever need another character in your book, PLEASE consider using my name! I would DIE! (I'm totally fan girling but seriously please consider)
      P.P.P.S.- Please reply! :)Sorry this is so long.

    3. Kayla! Thanks for such an enthusiastic message! It really made me smile :) Of course I love that you love my books and Sadie & Rayne. Your comment about feeling like you're talking to a famous person totally made me laugh! And so did the "fan girling" comment. The fact that my books have any fans at all is like a dream come true, so please keep on fan girling as much as you want! And invite your friends, lol.
      There will definitely be a fourth book, and I'm thinking there will be a fifth too, but I won't be sure until I can sort out the details of the end of the story. Anyway, thanks again!

  34. Hey it's Kayla sorry if I'm bothering you, I know you're terribly busy, but I just want to say I'm hoping you aren't having trouble writing the story so far, which I don't think you would be because by what I've read you're truly talented. I want to give a massive thank you for giving me some entertainment that's very hard to find. Really, it is. Just please consider using my name, because I would die and then come back to life and then die again. Then I would scream and run around the house die again. Ha. Anyway, good luck and keep writing!

    1. Hey Kayla! Of course you are not bothering me! Yes, I do get pretty busy, since writing books takes a lot of time and hard work, but I love getting comments from fans. I don't always have time to answer right away, but I do try my best. Your comments make me smile :-)
      You seem pretty passionate about getting your name used in a book, haha. No promises, but I will do my best to consider it, if it fits one of my characters in the future.
      Yes, that is me in the profile pic, so thank you very much for the nice compliment!

      Ps. If you watch the book trailer for Rogue Wave up at the side of this page, there is a photo in it that I picked for Sadie and Rayne. But I think everyone should pick out their own photos of how they imagine them in their heads. That's part of the fun of books, that you get to imagine the characters the way you think they should look ;-)
