I’ve gotten a lot of questions about what’s next in the land of J.L. Berg. I’ve been deep in my writing cave, making sure I actually have enough of a story before I
announced anything and now, it’s finally time to share!
I’m currently working on not one, but two books!
This is a first for me. I always swore I’d never write more than one story at a time. It’s hard to focus on that many characters, and honestly…it’s confusing. However, I think because these storylines are so different, it’s been actually rather easy and manageable. So…on to the details!
The Tattered Gloves
This will be the first book to release. Right now, I’m planning on a January release. What makes this book unique for me is its the first young adult book I’ve ever attempted. Why YA? Well, there are many reason. The first–I love YA. It’s a beautiful genre and one I’ve always wanted to explore. Second–my daughter. As some of you know, I have a twelve year old daughter, and she is an avid reader. She’s always wanted me to write something she could share with her friends and read herself, so this is my gift to her. It’s been such a joy to share my writing with her and see her light up and she reads it.
The Tattered Gloves is geared towards upper YA due to some sensitive subject matter. Cover and back blurb to come soon!
This book idea came to me like a freight train. One day, I was in the shower (which is where all my good ideas come) and suddenly I was rushing out, dripping wet, trying to figure out how to fit this crazy idea into my schedule.
Which is why I’m now writing two books at once.
As I write The Tattered Gloves, putting all my emotion into its pages, Fraud is where I get to release the sexy, fun part of me that is left over. This book is definitely not YA and will similar to Behind Closed Doors as far as tempo and tone.
I’m hoping to release this book early 2017 as well, but I do not have a set date.
I know everything is a little vague at this point, but just stick with me and I promise I’ll give you more soon!
