2017

It’s been a great year and I thought I would take some time to answer some of your most commonly asked questions – 2017 edition!

2017

Are any of your books available as audiobooks?

Absolutely! I currently have 6 books available from audible.com (and as audiobooks from Amazon) and I’m currently working on getting The Bitch released as an audiobook. Click here to see all the books available from Audible.

The Bitch is a project currently in the works but it should be available at Audible sometime in early 2018.

What are you working on right now, any new books coming soon?

I wished I could easily answer that question. Truth is, I have about 20 projects in the works. I’ve found that I get really into a story then put it aside, work on another and then go back to the other after some time has passed. I’ll make some edits and then repeat.

The good news is, I currently have probably 3 books that will be ready for a 2018 release. Two are contemporary romance, and one is a Young Adult Romance. The YA book will be my first foray into that genre so I’m really excited but also very nervous. It’s something I wanted to do for a long time. In fact, the first book I ever wrote (back in 2012) is a YA romance, although I have yet to release it.

Whatever happened to the next book in the Absolutely Unforgivable series?

I wished I could tell you an answer you wanted to hear but to be honest, after getting down about 60k words in the next story, I’m just unsure on a few parts so I thought I would put it aside for awhile and see how I feel early in the new year when I go back to it.

Are you on Twitter?

Yes, you can find me on both Twitter and Facebook. On twitter you’ll find me @TracyTegan and on Facebook I’m Facebook.com/TracyTegan.

Are you looking for beta readers?

Absolutely. I’m always looking for some fabulous volunteer to read rough drafts of my work and tell me what they think. Just click the contact link and let me know if you are interested. Tell me a little about you and why I should pick you.

I want to write a book, what do you suggest I do?

Sit down at your computer and write and just when you think you can’t do it anymore, write another 500 words. Keep doing this every single day until you have finished your first rough draft. Anyone can say they want to write a book but only a few people actually see it through. It takes a lot of time and dedicated to put pen to paper and pull the story you have in your mind out of your head and actually write it up. Long story short, the only way to make it happen is to sit down and start doing it and keep doing it a little, every single day. Eventually one day, you’ll have your rough draft and can start the horribly annoying but all to important editing process and before you know it, you’ll be publishing your first book!

Do You Facebook

I admit I’ve been horrible about keeping up with my social media accounts. There are just so many. I have to remind myself to tweet hello, pin something and then try and come up with an engaging post to Facebook. Of course, we can’t forget Google+ either, or can we? Is that even still a thing?

I know that for most of 2015 I’ve been downright horrible with keeping up with my social media duties, but I promise I will do better next year, at least as far as Facebook goes, which apparently is still the most popular social media platform.

How about you? Do you still Facebook? If so be sure and like my page www.Facebook.com/TracyTegan. Who knows what I’ll come up with in the coming year, but I promise it will be something. 🙂

I’m a Social

The Mega Book versus a Book Series

I think a mega or epic book like Under The Dome by Stephen King probably couldn’t have been broken down into smaller pieces and made into a series of books about Chester’s Mill but as I’ve read series of books throughout the years I’ve often wondered why in the world they weren’t just released as one big book. This is especially the case with a series like The Selection. Don’t get me wrong, I have greatly enjoyed reading the entire series including the recently released companion novella about Prince Maxon’s life prior to the Selection but I still can’t help but think that it would have been just as easy to release it as one single book instead of a series of books.

But maybe that’s just me. Maybe series like the Lucky Harbor series or the Danver’s books are better as individual, quicker reads instead of with one big book. What do you think? Let’s take a vote and see what readers really think.

 

Update: This poll is now closed. It turns out the vast majority of readers who participated in this poll would rather have 2 books at 300 pages each than 1 big book at 600 pages.

 

Airabella Grace by Tracy Tegan

Airabella Grace is a romantic mystery.  It’s a story about a young girl from Oklahoma that, by a strange coincidence meets the man of her dreams while on vacation in Nevada with her family one summer.  Only it turns out there were other forces at play in a destined love affair that would work to keep them apart, not the least of which was the fact that he lived thousands of miles away in England and that he was a few years older than her.  Airadine didn’t care though, she was determined to make it work and somehow she would, but not before discovering that her true love had seen her before, long before he ever met her.  It turns out that she looked exactly like a long since passed member of his family.  It was his aunt who had died hundreds of years ago and her over-sized painted portraits now hung in his home as a reminder of his heritage.  The resemblance between Airadine and Airabella Grace fascinated him.  But could that fascination be what draws him to her, or what will end up keeping them apart?
