Publisher’s Corner…

May 31, 2019– This is an interesting question that I got from a reader during a book signing that I was at with Obsessed with Her. I’ve been asked this on more than one occasion so I thought it might be good to share!

Q: “Lacey, why did you write a prequel to Obsessed with Her? Why not a sequel, and did you have this in mind from the beginning?” 

A: I wrote a prequel to Obsessed with Her because the story wasn’t finished yet. I needed to release the books in this order for the story to make sense and for quite simply the sake of interest in the character and his development. I didn’t want to leave my readers with a ton of backstory to start with so the manuscript demanded to be written and released this way.  

I didn’t write a sequel to Obsessed with Her because the ending is final. There is no chance of a sequel and that’s all I’ll elude to as to not spoil it for those who have not finished or read the book yet. 

Yes, I had this prequel in mind from the beginning, I hadn’t written it yet, but it was always going to happen. Obsessed with Her is unfinished without the prequel and leaves the reader with too many questions. The prequel shows why James Cass behaves the way he does and what type of person he truly is. Obsessed with Her will make perfect sense after the release of, Becoming James Cass (prequel) that is set to hit the shelves this October!

The Beach is my Happy Place…

May 3, 2018- I was fortunate enough to spend time at the beach last month. It was pretty cool that I was able to finish writing my novel in the same place that I started it. The entire process felt as though it had come full circle. From the salty waves to the sandy, sunny shores, I can confidently say that the beach is my happy place. I was inspired by the peaceful, lapping waves and the gentle sounds of seagulls talking to each other. The creative process flowed easily and naturally in this type of environment; I can’t wait to return.

Where is your happy place? Where do you go to escape or get revitalized in your writing routine?  Is it the mountains? Or the bubbling brooks that are hidden in valleys? Is it the ocean and the secrets it keeps? Are you inspired by old towns and new places? Let me know in the comments below.
