Thank you!

Hello, lovelies!

Before I scurry back into the writing cave to continue working on the fifth Hidden book (as well as the next Hidden novella, which newsletter subscribers will start receiving installments of on Friday, June 13th!) I just wanted to say thank you.

Strife’s release day was by far my biggest release day so far. The book went live, and within hours it was on the Amazon bestseller lists for its primary categories. By the end of the day, it had reached #1 in superhero fiction and #20 in urban fantasy. I’ve had my books make it up there before, but never, ever on the first day like that. So thank you so much!! I hope you are enjoying it. Please let me know what you think!

Reviews on GoodReads and Amazon are always helpful, but if you’d rather share your thoughts about the book in a comment here on the blog, or via email (mine is email@colleenvanderlinden.com) please feel free to do so. I love hearing from you guys!

The writing on book five has stalled a bit. I know the ending, obviously, and I had a really awesome, detailed outline all written out. But… sometimes you start actually writing something, and those plans you made just don’t come together. So I’m back to the brainstorming/staring into space/muttering to myself phase of the writing process. It’ll pass. It always does. It’s just frustrating as hell, especially when I was sure I had it all worked out!

Other than that, things are good. I’m reading some of the backlog of books on my Kindle, which is always a good thing. We’re coming off of almost two days straight of rain, and it seems weird to see the sun shining through my window this morning. Today calls for writing and then gardening, hopefully.

Have a great day!

    Hey there! I ran into your first book by accident and I was delighted to see it take place in Detroit. I am from Michigan myself (Detroit, Hazel Park, Sterling Heights areas) but we are stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia . It was great to have a little slice of home these past few weeks.

    I feel in love with your characters… I just finished book 3 last night and I had that normal “bummed out” feeling that I get when a series I love is finished, but after clicking the next page it said “June 3, 2014” I sat up fast, checked the date and did a victory dance. LOL. I just purchased Strife on Amazon and I cannot wait to devour it. Looking forward to book 5 already! Thank you 🙂

      Hi Kristen! Thanks so much for the nice note — glad to bring a little of “the D” to you via the series. 🙂 Very happy the timing worked out for you, too!
