WIP Wednesday: Riverside Reverie
I can't believe summer is almost over! I feel like it just started yesterday, and now we're three weeks out from the start of a new school semester. Talk about time flying when you're having fun! The kids and dogs have kept me really busy, along with house projects, and of course...writing!
I've been working on a new book, Riverside Reverie, and I'm loving this story! 😍
Picture this: you just graduated college, and you're packing up to go home...when you get a Snap from your younger sister and it's a photo of her in bed with your high school boyfriend! Not exactly the welcome home you expected, huh? Well, that's how things kick off in Riverside Reverie!
Lux's relationship with her sister has always been tempestuous, but she never thought Brinley would go to such lengths to hurt her. Luckily, Lux's best friend Jasmine drags her on a camping trip with a bunch of her college friends. Lux gets the space and clarity she needs from the situation...and she meets one of Jasmine's handsome friends. Their connection is instant, but Lux doesn't exactly know how to trust it...or herself.
I've already have the cover in hand and I have about 20k words to go before the first draft is done. Then I'll do a read through and make any necessary revisions. Once the manuscript is with the editor, I'll be picking a release date and planning the cover reveal. I'm hoping for a fall release, but we'll see! I decided this year I wouldn't implement any demanding deadlines on myself, I'm still recovering from having two major deadlines and releases last year! 😂
But for now, here's a little teaser and some book details:

I’ve always had a plan: get good grades and steer clear of any trouble. Confident of how my life would play out…until I wasn’t.
The day after graduating college, I get a message from my sister that derails everything—a photo of my long-time boyfriend in her bed.
Betrayed and newly single, I find solace in my best friend who convinces me I need to escape.
I find myself on an unexpected camping trip where a pair of strong arms and smouldering green eyes have me wondering if true love really can exist.
I thought this was going to be like any other camping trip. Good times with friends, nature, and a little physical exertion. What I didn’t foresee was her. The stunning redhead who sets my body ablaze with flames hotter than the campfire.
Immediately, I’m drawn to her. I can see in her eyes that she can feel the pull too, but something is holding her back. She is a challenge and one I don’t plan on backing away from.
Can I gain her trust and show her I’m not like the last guy, or will she flee as soon as we hit the city limits again?
