So, hi. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, and I thought I would stop in and give you all a brief update, mainly about Who’s Afraid of Amy Sinclair? Since that is what most of my life is right now, and that’s what you’re really interested in, let’s be honest.
Short version: I had a few setbacks in December/January, but things are back on track. It feels like the work will never end, but I know I am actually getting close. I know it’s taking me forever to get you this book, and all I can say is that this has been the hardest one I’ve ever written, full of so many false starts and wrong turns. Seriously, I don’t even know how many times this book was almost something completely different. But! It is finally the book it should be, and honestly, I am so, so proud of this story. I’m busting my ass to make sure you get it as soon as possible, and that it will be good enough to be worth the wait.
Here’s a teaser:
In other news, I recently created an Instagram account, and I’ve been spending most of my social media time over there. So if you’re in the mood for glimpses behind the scenes, random updates, and numerous cat pictures, you’re very welcome to check it out: @jenngottbooks.
