Right now I’m sitting at my desk — dog at my feet, toddler slumbering directly above my head, purple water bottle by my keyboard — completely flabbergasted that the calendar on the wall keeps insisting it is July. I hope you’re all having a phenomenal, restful, one-for-the-memory books kind of summer.
Many of you have reached out in the past year to ask when (or, in some cases, whether!) I plan on revealing what happened to Belle, Cinderella, Dawn, Rapunzel, and everyone else in the Desperately Ever After series. For months, all I could do was explain that life (new baby, house search, health scares) has a way of knotting up even the best laid plans, but rest assured I’d been devoting every spare minute to Book 3 since before Book 2 even hit your Kindles.
But today … finally .. I can answer your questions with something new: Skipping Midnight, the concluding novel in the Desperately Ever After series, is complete!
NOW I’m off to the land of revisions, proofreading, copyediting, and formatting — all of which I plan (ah, there’s that word again!) to finish as quickly as possible without sacrificing one lick of the story. If all goes well, you’ll be reunited with the ladies of Marestam before summer officially sets and Ariel loses her human legs. (Can you tell I’ve been living with a toddler? I can’t even tell you how hard it is to write with the entire soundtrack from Frozen playing on a constant loop in my head!)
But I digress. Thank you all for your wonderful emails, comments, and reviews. You have truly been my coveted midnight oil over these many, many months. Keep checking laurakenyon.com for updates, sneak peaks, giveaways, and the date of Skipping Midnight’s big cover reveal next month.
And again … enjoy your summer!!!
