I'm really excited to host Kyra Lennon here today. She's been on her blog tour to celebrate the release of Blindsided, the second novel in the Game On series. This is the last stop on her tour, and she's sharing her plans for the future! Take it away, Kyra...
For those of you who have followed my Game On journey from the beginning, you’ll know I didn’t always have a series planned. The idea sprouted from wise words given to me by my CPs, and I ran with it. Fast. Two books in a year!
I didn’t always know where each character’s story would go, but they live inside my head, and now again, they pop out and whisper something in my ear. The next book in the series will be from the POV of Bree Collinson. She doesn’t feature in Blindsided, but many of you will remember as the ditzy wife of the Westberg Warriors goalkeeper, Jude.
Bree was a ray of sunshine in Game On. Her enthusiasm for life kept Leah from falling apart on several occasions, and that sunny persona is what makes everyone love her so much. Okay, to some the endless bubbliness might be annoying, but the girl has the kindest heart you can imagine, so in spite of her dizziness, it’s hard not to be charmed by her!
Bree’s story (tentatively named Sidelined) shows a whole different side to her. Her life wasn’t always picture perfect, and you’ll learn a lot about her backstory, including how she met Jude. Bree goes through some huge changes during her story, as she struggles to make sense of the things she’s experienced. She also faces some inner turmoil about her life with Jude, and what she wants for her future.
Seriousness aside, Bree won’t lose all of her sparkle. But there are tough times ahead for her and the rest of the characters when two unexpected events rock their worlds.
After a successful first soccer season in L.A, Jesse Shaw heads to London with his best buddy, Hunter, but his world is turned upside down when a dangerous prank threatens his career and his blossoming relationship with Hunter’s cousin, Isabelle.
Isabelle Mills lives in Notting Hill with her parents and her twin sister, Georgia. When she finds out her cousin is coming to stay, along with his famous soccer player friend, her first instinct is to hibernate until they’ve gone. However, once she meets Jesse, everything changes. He’s everything she ever wanted, but with so many obstacles in their path, can she really risk putting her heart on the line?
Kyra Lennon was born on the South coast of England, and to this day, still lives by the sea. After years spent working in retail, where she met enough versatile characters to write hundreds of books, she finally took the plunge and quit her day job. Kyra's debut novel, Game On, was released in July 2012. While fiction writing has always been her passion, she also has numerous articles on a variety of topics published on prolific websites.

Thank you for having me, Annalisa! :DReplyDelete
Characters can sure get under your skin. I'm glad you're concentrating on Jesse's slight imprefections. That will show a deeper side to your character. Some of us may have been born with a sunny disposition, but strength of character keeps our balance during trials. ;-)ReplyDelete
Agreed! Thank you for stopping by!Delete
Way to tease us with that last paragraph! Can't wait to get a peek at this. :) Like the title too - follows on from Blindsided pretty well...ReplyDelete
Heh, it was a pretty good last paragraph, wasn't it? :DDelete
Yay. Excited to hear about the future books!ReplyDelete
That's what happens when you drop off the radar for a while. I didn't even realize Kyra was coming out with a sequel! :)ReplyDelete
No worries, you've been VERY busy!Delete
With all of the characters in Game On, you could be writing books for years!ReplyDelete
Haha! There are only 5 books planned in total. :DDelete
This sounds great! So glad your CPs talked you into writing more about these characters!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Rachel, me too!Delete
I think it's wonderful that you are letting them all tell their story, and I really like Bree. The world needs more chipper people, I think. :)ReplyDelete
I agree! I would love to have a Bree in my life!Delete
I like Bree too! Good to see you making the rounds Kyra!ReplyDelete
It can be a bit alarming when our characters start talking to us, but generally it pays to listen!ReplyDelete
LOL, writing is the only job you can do where it's okay to say you hear voices!Delete
Bree is a lot of fun. Can't wait for the next book!ReplyDelete
Stories that follow multiple characters are fun! My first fiction book became a series of five because four other characters wanted their stories told.ReplyDelete
Yeah, it's easy to get lost in their worlds!Delete
Getting a chance to know other characters from a certain world is always fun!ReplyDelete

Sounds like an interesting series and each character has a story to tell with their past often, far more interesting than their present.ReplyDelete
Ooh, these characters have a lot going on in the present, too! :DDelete
Congrats Kyra! The book sounds awesome! Great title too!ReplyDelete
Thanks for all the comments on Kyra's post. I have my copy ready to read, and I'm hoping I'll get to it over the Christmas holidays.ReplyDelete
I just love it when a character whispers in my ear... and you live by the sea, Kyra. What I've always wanted to do!ReplyDelete
Yeah Kyra! I'm super impressed that you managed to complete to publishable works in a year. I haven't even managed one in...a few years. >.<ReplyDelete
