Haaaaaappy Valentine’s Day (a couple of days early)! With a romance about to release, needless to say, I’m knee-deep in candy hearts this year.

(Which is why I had to include one my brother’s pics as a Valentine to all my fantastic followers…)

…I’m also thrilled to be participating in Romance Week, an event hosted by Snowdrop Dreams of Books and Knit, Purl, Stitch…Read and Cook!

I’ve been itching to post this, my first vlog interview…And I’m excited to reveal a sneak-peek-ish little tidbit about PLAYING HURT.

As I explain in the video below, PLAYING HURT initially featured only one narrator. The story was, throughout the first few drafts, only told from Chelsea’s POV.

After selling A BLUE SO DARK, though, I had an epiphany about what was missing from PLAYING HURT…and an enormous part of that something was Clint.

It wasn’t the easiest revision in the world, bringing Clint in (my first male protagonist)! In fact, it was like writing a completely new book. I had to work on Clint’s own voice, his backstory…

But that just goes to show you what revision can bring, when you don’t shy away from the challenge…I can’t imagine PLAYING HURT without Clint’s voice in it…


  1. Thank you so much for participating in Romance Week! I really look forward to reading Playing Hurt!

  2. Thanks for thinking of me for Romance Week, Chrystal! This was a blast...
