I’ve talked in detail about everything I have going on in the next few months. Wedding #1 was this past weekend and now we only have 12 more cousins to get hitched on my mom’s side of the family (and it’ll only be 11 left after next month).

My NaNoWriMo Project

I’m currently going through the last round of edits for Bullets and Bylines, this is more focusing on cleaning up my excessive love of commas more than changing the story.

The next book coming out, Cameras and Confessions, will be much of the same – more cleaning up the draft than changing the story, which means I’ve got some wiggle room in my writing schedule just in time for NaNoWriMo! It’s finally time to get back to Cassie with her third book, Justice and Lies. 


All Cassie Morgan wants is for everyone to forget she exists. A former foster child, she spent most of her life hiding in plain sight, first in foster care and then as an FBI agent. It’s been four years since she became a national obsession after arresting her long-lost father.

It’s been four years of delays, but now Cassie gets to face her father when she testifies at his trial – one that the country will be watching. But days before the trial starts, a suspicious box address to Cassie with a stark warning ruins her sting operating and drags her back to the underground criminal world of Brent Rossett and his mob.

Wanting to put this part of her history in the past, Cassie knows the only way to stop it is to dismantle the mob and its lies from the inside. With help from her old team and a source deep on the inside, Cassie might get the opportunity to finally set the story straight and end it.

I’m really excited to go back to Cassie after, like, a two-year break. When I stopped to turn to the Emily Burnet Series, I thought I’d be taking a year away but those books turned into more than I thought they would – and that’s great, but I won’t lie – I’ve missed this world.

The outline I’ve been working on the past week feels like a different story, darker than what I originally planned. But I like it. As with many other NaNoWriMo years, I suspect I’ll be writing most of this story during my Thanksgiving break and during my birthday weekend.

If you’re doing NaNoWriMo, be sure to add me as a buddy since we all lost all our buddies. I’m @laurateagan!
