The Book's Creation
A while back, I was talking to a close friend of mine about music and recordings. She told me that her husband had been a member of a rock band for many years. It wasn't long after listening to her tales of band life on the road, that I felt inspired to write a reverse harem rockstar romance. The Hopping Hippos made great progress until I came to a point where I wasn't sure where to take it from there and I let the matter rest for a while. Some time passed, I took part in a friends-to-lovers anthology for which I wrote the short version of Fromance in a day. It just flowed out of me.
Shortly before this anthology was unpublished again, the publishers posted about an upcoming rockstar romance anthology called Rock My World. When I saw the post, I immediately thought of my Hopping Hippos and decided to use it for entry. The word count and progress of what I had written so far were perfectly suited to keep within the maximum word count of 30,000 words. The rest is history! The anthology will be published on the 19th of April 2023 and run for around four months.
The Hopping Hippos will be published solo after that. The preliminary publishing date for the solo book is the 12th of October 2023.
