I’m so excited I can barely stand it. Why? Why are you excited, Tarryn? Well, as you know I’ve been writing a new book. Maybe you didn’t know this, but now you do. And I know everyone is screaming THIEF at me. I hear ya! I do. Just give me some time. Caleb is speaking, but I’m listening to more than one voice right now. Let me tell you about the new voice. Shhhhhh. Don’t fight me. Tarryn knows best.
Writing a new book is best described by Glen Hansard’s lyrics in Falling Slowly.
I don’t know you
but I want you, all the more for that.
Words fall through me
and always fool me…
Writing a story is like falling in love. At first you’re unsure of what to trust. You’ve been taken for a ride before; some things pan out, some things don’t. And now you have this voice whispering in your ear, telling you to trust it. You want to, so bad. You get to know your story, slowly. It’s just all so new. That’s where I’ve been. I know it’s good. One of you gave me the idea, in fact. It all happened in the secret Opportunist Lovers Group on Facebook. Yup, you heard me right. But, up until tonight I just liked the story. Tonight, tonight I fell in love.
I saw my protagonist for the first time. Really, really saw her. I haven’t been bonding with her. Then, in one honest sentence, I gave her a piece of myself that I’ve never given to a character before. BAM! All of a sudden I knew which part of me she was and where I had to take her. And in that moment of realization, their entire story unfurled in front of me; Senna’s and Isaac’s. I left Starbucks and drove Sexi Lexi up the hill to my house, laughing and smiling, and thinking; This is the greatest story I’ll ever tell. I’m going to bend their minds in ways they’ve never been bent before.
Then, I started crying Crying! After all that laughing. Because falling in love is hard. You have to trust and accept. I saw the end of the book. I’ve had amnesia up until this moment. By the way, this book is untitled, but I’ll let you know as soon as it comes to me.
But, it’s all clear now. And boy, do I have a story to tell you. Do you trust me?
J. Sterling says
Hell no i don’t trust you! The only thing I trust you with is taking my heart, holding it in your palm, looking at it lovingly before you crush it, bleed it dry and then stomp it in a million pieces. You, my beautifully talented friend, terrify me in the best possible way. 🙂
Robin Prete says
J. That comment was SO awesome. OMG.
Wow! I could not have said it better myself!!
victoria hernandez says
J.Sterling you are awesome can you convince miss tarryn to come with you to los angeles author event
Jeannie Smith says
Holy crap that is funny. Yet so true….
Adrienne Scales says
That is so exciting! I can’t wait for more.
What can I say to this ? I think that your new book is gonna kill me !
Whyy ? Because after I read ‘The Opportunist’ I can’t stop thinking about Olivia & Caleb! Im looking for them in every new book I reead, every summary, every song…
Your style, your sense of writing, your stories, your words make the story real and vivid !
Thank you Tarryn for writing and making me feel sumptuous feelings …
I do! I trust you!
Of course I do. Ill take anything you want to write, wherever, whenever. Im excited to read more about Sienna and Issac.
Even your blogs are written with passion and grace…..I trust you and now look forward to two great books from you :))
Maria Gowin says
Yep! Trust you to hell and back. You write, I follow, simple as that.
Mad love for you girl!!!
Becky Lowe says
I have a most certain feeling this is gonna be good. 🙂 Once upon a time…
Sue Mae says
My god. At first I was upset that you were trying to ignore Caleb. AGAIN. Then I’m like “Who gives a F*** about Senna?!? Give me my Olivia & Caleb ending dammit!” But after reading your whole description, about how it’s like falling in love, and you cried & laugh, I completely & utterly understood what you meant so now I agree you must write it or it will consume you. I’m beginning to go through the same thing for the first time in my life too, and I’ve never written before and I’m scared sh!tless. Write what you feel girl, but don’t make us wait too l
Wow… You have peaked my interest. I am so looking forward to reading. Question is, how long are you going to make us wait for Senna? and by the way… “Falling Slowly for Senna” would make a great title.
And oh dear God, I love my Caleb… but I want you to really listen to him, feel him, love him and hate him and love him all over again and then, and only then, should you turn him to us 🙂 so I am willing to wait… Anticipation – (q cite=”…I am prepared for anything, but I am the complete agnostic…” by W.N.P.

Sue Mae says
Dang iPhone. Anyways, don’t torture for too much longer with Thief. Because I’m worried just like falling in love, once you find someone new and more exciting, you’ll forget all about the other one. Love your crazy mind!
“In Tarryn We Trust”
Angie [Smut Book Club] says
I trust you for a good story, but I’m giving you side eyes until I read and fall in love because you have a 2-book history of chopping up my heart.
Mary (Cathy) Cameron says
It sounds wonderful, I can’t wait 🙂 We all love a great read….
Yes I trust you……to make me fall in love again with Senna and Issac. She is dreamy. Looking forward to be taken on a new ride! You are so talented! Thrilled that you are in love with a new book! <3
Yoselyn Mateo says

Fred LeBaron says

Krystal Moore says

Trisha R. says
Yes, I do! Completely!! Take me there!
I’ve fallen for Tarryn this week as I read your other books and can’t wait for more.
You know I do. Can’t wait.
With all I have!!! So excited!!
Nikole Reed says
You are so passionate. I cant wait to read your new book!
Mimi Abraham says
Loving this!! So excited about ANYTHING you write <3 can't wait!
I trust you. Take me there. I’ll go wherever you want me to go. Creeper style.
Belen Rojas says
Total trust with my eyes closed…. Your stories are amazing can’t wait!!!
Bobbi Jo says
I can’t think of anyone else I had rather trust to break my heart and leave me speachless than you!!!
Tarryn, I trust you but (of course, there’s a but) I don’t enjoy the “mindf***”.
You made me fall in love with Caleb & Olivia, no doubt the same will happen with Senna. However (same as a but, and yes another but), I need for Caleb & Olivia to have their HEA before I can move on. They deserve it! I deserve it! I want to smile after reading Thief. My family wants me feeling warm & fuzzy not crazed & miserable.
I plan to read anything you write and I am slowly getting used to the mind bending.
You’re difinitely changing the way I view the romance genre.
Wow…Can’t wait. The Opportunist blew my mind. It is my favorite read even though the ending seriously messed with my mind for days. This new book sounds exciting too. Still can’t wait for Thief though!
Lisa McMahon says
Wow, I got emotional just reading your update. You are a powerful writer, and yes, we trust that you know what is right, and will give us a great story, when it is ready.
Lisa McMahon says
BTW, thanks for the update on what you are working on. I think that is what drives us all crazy. Not knowing. I do hope you have the inspiration to finish Caleb’s story soon.
When will your next book from the love me with lies series be out? I just love these books.
Of course I trust you…to make me completely insane from the angst of the wait!!! I’m going to need a sponsor, group therapy, and a 12 step program to overcome my addiction to your writing and your characters.
I trust you to put my emotions once again through one hell of a rollercoaster ride! I am looking forward to this neew book of Senna and Isaac BUT please first give my lovely Olivia and Caleb a happy ending.
I should not ask for a happy ending you might just feel you want to spite me and give me the most awefull ending that I will cry for days. I felt I needed therapy after I read the Oppertunist. I just finished Dirty Red and man she is some bad ass woman!!! I cant stand her!!!
So please finish Caleb and Oliva then you can fall head over hills with your new book! Im looking forward to reading that too!!! Thank you for great books, I appreciate every word you write! 🙂
OH tarryn,your killing me here,im sure your next book will be great,BUT i cant move on until THIEF is completed.please give us our ending for calb and oliviapleaseeeeeeeeeeeeee
Ms Fisher, after I read The Opportunist, you went straight into my quite small collection of authors I will read EVERYTHING they put out. You have such a way with words, and you are able to nail on the head the very minute details and nuances of a relationship, of feelings … that I could never not trust you to deliver a book well worth reading!
Can. Not. Wait.
PS, how I wish I knew you in person, judging by the way you write.
Cannot wait <3
Will there be a possibility to buy signed book directly from you?
Cannot wait. Will there be a possibility to buy signed books directly from you?
Amy Jennings says
OK so when will Falling Slowly be out? Please tell us the wait for Thief will not be more than a year??? please?
I don`t trust you but i trust your writing bcos you always deliver. Since readind your love me with lies series, i find it hard to read any other book without looking for those same character. Please the wait is killing me, to read the end of caleb and olivia. I have fallen in love with them and other characters such as Noah, Sam and Cammie. I have devised all kinds of scenario`s in my head please stop the train for me.
Can`t wait for sienna and Isaac I`m sure it will rock my world like love me with lies did. All the best.
Natasha Bennett says
Holy mother of God I have e completely Allen in love with you…….don’t trust you one bit my heart is still bleeding from the opportunist by your writing knows no bounds and I will forever be waiting for whatever you write next.
Tarryn, Tarryn, Tarryn…
I will eat up every word you will ever write. I will love, hate, cry, laugh and maybe even cream in my pants for every single one of your books. I can’t wait for Senna’s story and I know you will defiantly give me a mindf***. So I guess I trust that you’ll give my mind a blowing orgasm.
PS: Take alllllllllllll your time with Caleb. I want it to be a total rollercoaster ride.
Tarryn**** (Sorry for the spelling mistake – Blushing)
my therapist told me not to trust you anymore after spilling all my crazy messed up thoughts about some guy named caleb and a girl named olivia. the therapist said to keep tarryn’s books far far away from that part of my brain as it never turns out well for anyone involved. lol.JK!… Can’t wait for this book and to Caleb’s POV in Thief.
All I know & trust is that I’m sending you my therpist bills…LOL….Luv u Tarryn & ur twisted brilliant mind!!!
How I just love the way you write and speak from the heart! I so rarely connect with authors through their work but there is a blunt honesty in your writing that just compels me to become completely immersed. I think deep down we can all relate to the humanity of your characters and that is what draws us all in. I’m really looking forward to more work. I don’t know if you quite understand your ability to really move people with your writing but you do just that and, I think, always will. Congratulations Tarryn and I know your next novel will floor me also!
Trust you? Hmmmmmm……trust you to write amazing written, gut wretching, cant get out it out of my head books that totally mess with my mind…..I do! Thanks for the update. Love to hear from our favorite authors!
daisy esquenazi says
Well, you know i will anxiously waiting to read this also and just maybe I will NOT be as nutsy as with TO?! Who, I am kidding i will. 😉
nancy mewes says
no Terri .. am striking, I CAN NOT WAIT ANY LONGER!!! WE WANT THIEF…. WE WANT THIEF…. WE WANT THIEF….. LOL
noel zamora says
You tore my heart open in the opportunist…unless they get put together in thief I don’t think I will ever fully recover. I hope I can trust you with the next book…jk…you are an awesome writer.
You are an awesome writer but after reading The Opportunist and Dirty Red I am in need of some serious therapy! Both books made me wake during the night and when I would finally close my eyes again, I dreamed of them but I would insert Caleb and Olivia’s HEA. What is the intended release date for Thief?
I trust you!! Even if I anticipate trauma and a wretched feeling in my heart after reading your books. I trust you.
I DO!!! Now Im all giddy and trembling with exitement!! CANT HARDLY WAIT!!
Your books are just AMAZING! I can’t wait for THIEF and the new book you’re writing.
I am so glad you’re writing a new story. After reading the Opportunist, Dirty Red and finally The Thief, I feel a little lost. I can’t get Olivia and Caleb out of my head and I want more. Your writing is heart wrenching and so true.
Thank you for sharing your talent.
