It's been just a little over two months since To Love a Tea Witch dropped on Amazon and KindleUnlimited, and since then, I have been working on the second novel in the Thistlewood Witches series. It's all about Alexis Cohen, the strange, brooding, gothic coven member who has a deep obsession with demon worlds after a chance encounter in her teenage years.
I've done quite a bit of work on this story since we last talked about it. The first draft has been finished, put to bed, proofread for spelling and grammar errors, then took a trip to my editor. Its back in my hands now. I've done a bit of rewriting, and its been read by my alpha readers (My alphas are the BEST), and now I am taking my time with making adjustments and changing a few things in the line-editing phase.
So far, I am really loving how Alexis's story has played out. When we first met her in Tea Witch, she was a little strange, a little kooky, and WAY obsessed with her mission to reach the Underworld once more. Sydney was put off by her at first, but the more they got to know one another, the closer they grew until Sydney herself brewed Alexis a sleep potion to calm her mind and nerves.
In her story, Alexis has calmed quite a bit, though her obsessions still remain the same. She's a bold woman, with strong intentions and goals and she never wants to waiver from them. And when she meets her match in the form of a demon named Xal'aros, sparks fly all over the place! The novel ends up being a fish out of water story just as much as it is a love story!
Right now, I am right on time to meet my deadlines and have the book out on the Fall Equinox, or September 22nd. Once I finish with this round of line edits, the book will go back to my alphas, then to my betas. And if everything looks great (fingers crossed!), I will be looking for ARC readers! And then when the leaves start to turn, it will be time for Alexis to take center stage!
