The Hardest Part is Waiting
I’ve done a post on how to work out a series with other authors, so, today, I thought I’d share a little piece of the hard part. Waiting.
When Berinn Rae, Elle J Rossi and I decided to release the series this summer, we were all kind of stressed from the holidays, under deadline pressures, etc. I don’t think we really thought everything would come together this quick. By the end of May, I think we were all finished. Yes, even edits…so, we wait.
I’ve chewed my nails off twice waiting for this novella to hit, and now, it’s here. Woot! I know, this is not my first release and I should probably be used to it by now, but this is my first real Indie book and I’m so totally nervous. I want to match or better yet, exceed my past stories.
A wave of worry and nerves attack me while waiting. Anxiety manifests in the form of migraines, ulcer like symptoms, etc… And, yet, because I went into this endeavor with two wonderful friends, I know that I’ll be okay.
If I need them, my co-series-conspiratators will be there. So, yes, the hardest part has been waiting. Writing this book and series with them was the easy part. Now, my next angst-ridden-moment will be from waiting to see if you guys like it. Big hugs, and if you have a moment, check out my new release.
I’d love to know what your last anxiety ridden moment was over! Please share.

It is no secret that I am huge Rachel Firasek fan, I love how she puts together a story and leave me wanting more and more. Creating Fate lived up to all of the hype and anticipation for the story. This is one of three stories in this trilogy and each is written by a different author yet tied together. A very interesting and unique way of putting something together if you ask me. Clotho, or Chloe (A.K>A the first Fate) never planned on giving her heart away to a human let alone losing him. She is heartbroken and determined to spin no more fate. While on a forced vacation (Zues’ command) she runs into Dane in the middle of no where. Dane is more than he seems with his seemly split personality and troubled way. He has worked for years to infiltrate a local drug scene, as an undercover agent, and is he is now on the run. There is a ton of tension that plays out between Chloe and Dane, just how I like it, a ton of emotion that happens in a short amount of time. This was one story that I just could not put down. I have always enjoyed Greek Mythology and Rachel Firasek has written an outstanding take on it once again! GO READ this story NOW!
She gave away her heart… Giving her heart to a mortal wasn’t something the First Fate planned. Losing him nearly shattered her soul. Upon his death, Clothos swore never to love—or weave life—again. Hoping she’ll change her mind before it’s too late, Zeus commands the spinner of life to take a much needed vacation from her immortal responsibilities. He had to hide his… Dane is close to cracking the drug ring he’s spent the last two years infiltrating, but needs to perform one last heist to meet the head man and prevent an impending war. An undercover agent, he’s now on the run from drug lords, thieves and with the very woman whose tears make him forget his purpose. Together they’ll find a way back from the dark. Chloe will have to put her trust in the man walking the same path as the murderers that killed her fiance, or face an eternity on Earth. Without the desire for life, hope could slip through the cracks of time if he doesn’t love away her sorrow.
Rachel Firasek grew up in the south and despite the gentle pace, she harassed life at full steam. Her curiosity about mythology, human nature, and the chemical imbalance we call love led her to writing. Her stories began with macabre war poems and shifted to enchanted fairytales, before she settled on a blending of the two. Today you’ll find her tucked on a small parcel of land, surrounded by bleating sheep and barking dogs, with her husband and children. She entertains them all with her wacky sense of humor or animated reenactments of bad 80’s dance moves. She’s intrigued by anything unexplained and seeks the answers to this crazy thing we call life.
