A year ago I was preparing to publish White Heat (Lost Kings MC #5), a book people told me no one would want to read because it was “another book about Rock and Hope.”
I didn’t care. I loved the story so much, I couldn’t imagine not publishing it. I loved that it combined not only Rock and Hope’s but Wrath and Trinity’s stories. I loved all the evil things I did to my characters and mostly, I felt it brought Hope full-circle. She is unshakable in White Heat. When bad things happen, she stands taller and has Rock’s back even more. In turn, the club takes care of Hope. White Heat is the essence of what I feel the whole series is about.
When I published White Heat, it was the weakest release I had in the series. As much as I’d love to tell you numbers don’t matter, they do. It stung. And I thought maybe the people who told me it wasn’t worth writing were right…but then something amazing happened. You started leaving the most beautiful reviews for White Heat. You “got” me. You totally, and completely understood where I was coming from with this book. There is no better feeling in the world (for me) when the story I’m trying to tell resonates with you, my reader.
So here it is, almost a year later, and White Heat has the overall best rating of all the Lost Kings books. Below are a few of the most recent reviews.
And, here I am almost a year later, preparing to publish “yet another book about Wrath and Trinity” and that same fear that no one will want to read it has crept in a few times. That fear has fucked with my head. Paralyzed me. But once again, I LOVE this story.
White Knuckles (Lost Kings MC #7) is similar to White Heat, yet nothing like White Heat. Wrath and Trinity are in such a good place and after all the pain they’ve inflicted on each other, I think they deserve to have this story told. No matter how hard the world around them tries, Wrath and Trinity’s love and faith in each other are unbreakable.
Over the last year, YOU, my beautiful readers, have had so much faith in me. You’ve taught me to trust my instincts and to write what I love.
For that, I thank you!
