Sorry this took so long to answer. I'm so glad you enjoyed Solo, it was my first "traditionally" published book so it's pretty special to me.

The thing about it being traditionally published, though, is that I don't have a lot of wiggle room with my publisher. Unfortunately, they opted not to pick up the rest of the series, which would have taken place in that "world" with those Kate and Drew coming and going, even if they weren't the main characters.

This puts me in a bit of a bind because I can't really use those characters again without permission—which I may still be able to get. But in the meantime, the book that would have been Duet, was self-pubbed under the title Counterpoint. I had to change the characters and the location and a bit of the story in order to not "infringe" on my own work.

Confusing and frustrating, for sure. Suffice it to say I didn't have an agent at the time I signed that contract.

So, the answer to your question is that I do hope to do a follow-up on Kate and Drew, though it might just be something like a free novella rather than a full-on book. With a little luck I'll be able to squeeze that in this year.
Thanks so much for asking though!! All best, Lauren(less)

I take a bunch of colored dry erase markers and hit the whiteboard, putting my topic or character or problem within a circle in the middle. Then I let loose with tangent thoughts that come to my mind—no matter how far-flung they may be— attaching them to the circle with lines or spokes.

Works for me EVERY time. Thanks, Miss Irvin!(less)

Behind the Book: Fun at the Fair in Mischief and Mayhem

I’m sure you’ve heard that old adage: “Write about what you know about.” And that’s exactly what I did when I set my Whiskey Sisters series in the fictional town of Mayhem, Minnesota. Now, I’m a New Yorker by birth but I spent nearly eight years living in St. Paul. To say that it was a culture shock is huge understatement. But I was embraced by the locals and, in turn, came to embrace some of thei
