Taking A Break…


Today, I’m heading into NYC to catch a plane to Arizona, where I get to mix business and pleasure. I’ll be visiting with family and catching up with my beloved crit partner, Kat, in person!

I can’t wait to escape the snow. Swimming. I get to go swimming in March!

I’m doing an author event in Tucson too! I’ll be at the  Tucson Festival of Books March 15th from 2-4 pm in the Author Pavilion West selling and signing books! If you happen to be there, please stop by.

While I’m away, I’m going to take a blog holiday so there will be no new posts until March 24th. I love my blog buddies and I will miss you lots!


Before I head out, I want to thank each and every reader who took the time to write a review for Six Train. It means the world to me. I read every single review and take what you say to heart. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

Last week we hit a major milestone–50 reviews on Amazon for Six Train. Woohoo! As promised, I revealed 3 things about the sequel on Facebook.

In case you don’t follow me there, I’m reposting them here too.

Drumroll please…..

Three things that will happen in Six Train’s sequel:

1) Kai’s parents, her sister Naomi, and her brother Caleb will be in Butternut for the holidays.

2) Kai and Oliver will visit NYC.

3) Kai will grapple with everything that happened in the cave and struggle to find her way back to herself.

I’m feeling incredibly optimistic so if/when we hit 75 reviews on Amazon, I will reveal more details about the sequel’s opening scene, possibly the first line. 😉  Right now, we are at 51 reviews, so we need 24 more reviews. I’ll  also open the blog to reader questions about the sequel and give you more clues about what will be happening.

    Enjoy your trip and your ‘down time’ though it still seems like you’re working. Ahh, the life of a famous author. Have fun with this. I have enjoyed every moment of your incredible and inspiring journey.

    • Thanks Jenny. LOL. I’m excited about the Festival of Books–I get a signing and 2 free days of workshops. Woohoo! And Kat is taking me to my first Ren Faire. I had trouble falling asleep last night because I’m so looking forward to the time off and away. 🙂 I try to combine work and fun to rationalize the costs of trips. Thanks for being here supporting me on this journey!

  2. Enjoy your blog break and your time in Arizona. I love it there. Seething with jealousy 😉

  3. Congrats, Kourtney and have a fab time!

    Have a wonderful work/play break! You picked a good location to take it in!

    • Thanks! The stars lined up on this one. I have free places to stay in Phoenix and am splitting the hotel in Tucson with my crit partner. AZ is the perfect winter getaway. I had no idea how long this winter would be when I planned this in Sept. 😉

    You’ve been working so hard, you deserve a fun break! Awesome to see these peeks into what Six Train’s sequel will hold. 🙂 Break a leg at the Writer’s Festival—or should that be break a wrist? pencil? keyboard?… 😉

  13. Book festival, workshops, lots of writers and warm weather. Totally recharge time! Have fun
    (and such delicious hints about the next book…)

    I’m jealous of your escape mode. Another snowstorm is headed our way tomorrow. Why? Why? Why? Have a great time and come home relaxed.

    Hope you enjoy the trip to Arizona…
    Wow you have already a good number of reviews and I am sure you´ll reach 75 very soon, Kourt…
    It would be great to read details about about the sequel’s opening scene,
    I´ll stay tunned…
    Best wishes, Aquileana 🙂
