Going MIA for a while

Hey guys, I just wanted to give you a heads up that the website will be down for a week or so. Don’t worry, I haven’t
disappeared off the face of the Earth, I’ll just be incommunicado for a while. If all goes well, we’re moving next week, and
the internet won’t be on in our new place until June 11th. With the move, the new book has been put on hold for another week or so, I’d say. I hate the delay, but there’s just too much going on to try and fit in the writing too, and I don’t want to be
so distracted when I sit down and get to it.

I swear I’m not a tool!

From time to time I get emails from fans who use the “Contact Lisa” function of the website. In general, I try to respond to them as soon as I can, I love to hear from you guys!!! I realized a couple of weeks ago that the system wasn’t showing me the person’s email address to reply to, but the system’s address!!! So, I apologize for some of the emails I thought I was replying to that disappeared into the ether. I’ve saved the last few I’ve gotten, waiting for my hubby to fix the problem so I could reply directly. Well, the problem is fixed for future emails, but we have no way to retrieve the email address for the messages I’ve already received.

I thought I’d reply here to a few emails, so you know I’m not being a tool on purpose, I really just haven’t had the ability to get back to you.

Lisa W: Thanks for asking about the Fallen series, I’m glad you’re enjoying it! Yes, there are definitely at least one or two Mercy books waiting to be written I’ll be working on one later this year. Then there will be a series from her daughter’s POV. Then I might pick back up with Mercy again later, we’ll see how it goes. There are always stories to be told when you have immortal beings in the picture.

Lisa B: I’m sorry you don’t like cliffhangers, my Mercy books are verrrra cliffhangery, I’ll admit. Maybe you’d prefer one of the stand alone books like The Touch or Pretty Witches All in a Row?

Kristen S: Thanks for reaching out to me, I don’t mind friendly stalkers at all, lol. I don’t know that I’d call myself a “speed writer” per se, but I do try to stick to a pretty rigid schedule with my writing. If you write to me again, I’d be happy to share my experiences as an author and answer any questions you might have on my writing process.

Tommy B: I think it’s a fantastic idea to draft a map of the vampire factions for my Forged Bloodlines series! I’ll get my hubby working on it. We’ll definitely see more of the different reps once we get to the Gathering in Book 5.

Michelle L: I’m pretty sure my response to you was one of the ones that went into the ether. I’m sorry I couldn’t help you out, but I don’t really have any swag made up. I’m thinking of getting some products available in time for the holidays with CafePress, but nothing at the moment.

Again, the system seems to be working now, so if anyone wants to try contacting me I promise I’ll try to respond.

Hopefully the mailing list is working as it should be. So far I’m only sending out emails when I have a new release, but I’m putting together a plan to release some original content, serial style on a monthly basis. What do you guys think? Would you be interested in receiving a chapter of something only available via the mailing list? I’m thinking maybe some behind the scenes stuff for Rob’s past with Jakob, circa WWII.

In other news, I’ve got the outline all mapped out for Miss Me When the Sun Goes Down, it just wants a bit more filling out before I start on the writing. It’ll be a different animal writing this one since we’re moving the first week of June, and I’m splitting my time between book stuff and house stuff, so it won’t be completed as quickly. Hopefully it’ll be worth the wait though.
