So back in November I decided to once again do the NaNoWriMo thingy, where authors are challenged to write 50,000 words during the month of November. Last year I did it and wrote what ultimately became Losing Me Finding You. This year I started, ready to crank out the words, and got a whole chunk added to my existing WIP…then I got stuck…really stuck. Even stopped writing all together.
Eventually I gave myself a smack and started opening up random files on my computer. Just previous stuff I’d written, most of which would never see the light of day, but which I was hoping would inspire me. Then I came across a file that I had written when I was writing Losing Me Finding You. Without saying what was in that file (because it will spoil the book a little), I started reading it…and never stopped. In fact I started adding more to it…and more, and more…and eventually this happened: Waiting For You.
Yep, it’s a companion novella to Losing Me Finding You. This one will be told entirely from Ben’s POV and it most definitely should be read AFTER you read Losing Me Finding You.
The cover is being made very soon and the book will be released early 2015, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share with you the blurb!
When I was a boy, I met a girl.
She changed my life.
In such a good way.
She taught me so many amazing things. Like how to expect the unexpected. How to want something, but also how to wait for it when circumstances forced you to. She taught me about bravery and facing your fears, about beating the odds when it felt like everything was against you. She also taught me how to laugh and how to believe in magic. She taught me about things I never even knew existed.
She taught me how to love.
I was only five years old when I met Evie Roberts. I loved her then and I love her now. The only difference is, now she’s Evie Foster.
She’s already told you her side of the story. Now I’m going to tell you mine. Well, it’s all still our story, because really, without her, my story wouldn’t matter.
