New Year, New Update

Way back in 2012 when I finished writing Masquerade, I had every intention of getting straight to work on Devotion, the forth of a total of five books planned for the Sevy Series. But life had other ideas.

To make a looooong story short, I ended up requesting the rights back for all three books of the Sevy Series from Mundania Press. I then self-published them on Amazon, and though sales were good, I’d become disillusioned with the series and with writing in general. I didn’t think I had it in me to be a writer. For years, I just gave up.

In 2018, I was finally able to break myself out the rut I’d fallen into and started seriously trying to get my career back on track. As of now, I have two projects out in submission land and am editing a third. I also have a list of story ideas that grows by the day and the scribbly first chapters of at least four novels on the go. I think my muse is busy making up for lost time.

I’m trying to stay focused on one thing at a time so as not to overwhelm myself, but it’s been getting difficult. You see, there is a voice in the back of my mind screaming for attention. After years stuck in limbo, Sevy has decided she’s ready for a comeback. I catch myself daydreaming about her a lot lately.

Like all writers, I imagine what it would be like to have a movie made of my stories. Over the years, I’ve cast any number of actors in the role of Sevy but never quite got it right. I think that’s changed. I found my ideal Sevy while binge-watching the latest season of Wentworth during the holidays: Nicole da Silva, pictured above. She has the right look and physicality (really, it’s almost creepy how much she resembles the Sevy in my head), and more importantly, she has the acting chops to convey Sevy’s conflicted mix of bravado and vulnerability without saying a single word. Honestly, she’s so perfect, it makes me ridiculously giddy, even though there’s as much chance of getting the Sevy Series made into movies as there is winning the lottery. Less even. Still, it’s a nice little fantasy that brings me joy.

I know that when I start fawning over dream-casts, it’s only a matter of time before I give in to a story that wants to be told. However, as mentioned, I’m right in the middle of edits on Graduating Class of Never. I want to get that finished and out to agents/publishers before I allow Sevy to truly take over my life again, and even once I start work on Devotion, it might be years before it’s finished.But if the Sevy Series still has fans somewhere out there, just know that I haven’t forgotten about her. I owe her another two books, and she isn’t one to let someone slip out of a promise so easily.

If you’ve read this far into my rambling, you must be a fan of Sevy, and if you are and you want to see more of her, you’d be doing us both a favour if you leave a review of Thief, Shades of War, and Masquerade on Amazon or Goodreads. Please and thank you and Happy New Year!
