Can't Let go came together fairly quickly. In just over three months, I had the story down on paper (so to speak) and ready for what has felt like never-ending revisions. Even recently, I went back in and added the beginning chapter of Kevin's story. Seriously, If you haven't read it..omg...I'm so excited for it to come out in a few months. Anyways, music is the only thing that kept my sanity. So here are my top ten played songs whilee writing Can't Let go:
I hold the story of Beau and Mallory close to my heart because there are three scenes that were inspired by true event. Now, the way these events play out in the novel aren't exact to my life, but they come close. The scene I want to talk about is the part where Beau takes Mallory shooting on Kevin's property. That man, holding the shot gun, is my personal Beau Cooper. It was the first time I'd ever held a gun. Let me tell you, I was terrified! Truth be told, shooting a gun still scares me. It hurts when it goes off and I am a big baby. BUT shooting is a lot of fun. We shot at a handful of targets (I don't remember what they were, it was over 10 years ago!). I of course missed mine....by a lot. Where as Mark (the one shooting with the amazing ass) and Kyle (the guy beside him) hit almost every one. Needless to say, I loved this memory so much Mallory and Beau had to do it too.

Seeing as how I have two different genres of books, I'm going to try to write two blogs a week. One designated to the Georgia Boys series and the other related to Ethereal. So, here we go!
Blogging is something I never thought I would do, then again I never thought I'd bring my words out of their dungeon for the world to see either. As some of you know, I write both contemporary romance and fantasy. I've been asked "Chrissy, why write in such different genres? Your going to have two different audiences."
My response is always I write what I like. Yes, from an authors point of view it is harder to find a fan base when you have two different concepts. For me though, that makes it more fun. No one should ever conform to being just one thing. Be what ever you want. It's your life. Do what makes you happy. Writing makes me happy. Fairies and magic and witches have made me happy since I was a kid. As I've grown up they still make me happy, but a down-home boy I can fall in love with makes me happy too. If you've found my blog I hope you stick around, subscribe to my newsletter, and read my books. See you soon!
