An Update From KD Ellis
“EVERYTHING SUCKS AND WE’RE ALL DYING, BUT I’M GOING TO LOOK PRETTY DOING IT.” –Trusting Tennyson, by KD Ellis
This quote from my upcoming release, Trusting Tennyson, is truer now than ever—at least the first part.
Everything sucks, and we’re all dying.
It’s been a long month.
I’m transitioning day jobs, a stressful change even if it is one that will, hopefully, be better for me long term, both in regards to my health and making time for writing. (I’m a morning worker, evening writer—these closing shifts at the day job have left me feeling burnt out and lacking creativity.)
My mother has been experiencing some health issues that are, unfortunately, still ongoing.
And to top it all off, we lost one of our beloved pets. (RIP Domino. You’ll be missed <3 )
So…Everything Sucks. We’re all dying.
But! I’m trying to look on the bright side.
On the bright side…
I’ve finally reached almost sixty thousand words into Book Four of the Out in Austin series, where we get to see Riley struggle for his well-deserved happily ever after. I’ve also finished drafting the first book of my new paranormal romance series, and am working on penning the second.
Keep your fingers crossed that my by-the-book Fae can keep up with his free-spirited street artist. He needs all the help he can get!
I’ve also joined a SUPER SECRET collaboration with some other MM authors in a project that I can’t yet speak of…(Except it will be HOT! Five chili peppers, if you know what I’m saying 😉 )
I’ve also started writing a series of pseudo-short stories following along with the show Glitter Nation from the Out in Austin Series. If you’ve read Shiloh’s Secret ( www.books2read.com/shilohssecret ) you’ll know what show I’m talking about!
If you’d like to hear more about any of these projects, please subscribe to my newsletter here. I’ll be sharing a new WIP to my newsletter subscribers soon, so definitely stay tuned! You can also join my facebook group, Kady Ellis’s Island.
So remember! Everything Sucks and we’re all dying…but don’t give up. We’re a community, and if we stand strong together, we can get through this.
