I feel like I’ve written this post ten times over the past few years, yet, none of them felt quite as big as this time around. The Assassin isn’t coming out in May. I don’t know when it will come out, because, quite frankly, I’m taking a break from it.
This story and these characters have been in my life constantly for almost eight years. That’s a long time for a twenty-one year-old. I love them all, but I feel the craving to take the time and start something new. I know once this book comes out, I’ll be running around to get sequels out.
School has been kicking my ass this semester and I just know I won’t be proud of this book if I rush through this editing process all in the sake of a time frame. So, for now, I’m going to walk away. Take time away from the characters and see what happens, just because I can. Don’t worry, The Assassin will be out at some point, but I don’t know when that point will be. The fact that I have no idea, it’s kind of liberating.
Since it won’t be out any time soon, I wanted people to be able to read at least a little bit. Over the next week or so, I’ll be adding a few chapters from the beginning to two websites: Wattpad and WriteOn.
