As Breeze would say, "Shit works out."
I was doing pretty good at writing the last few chapters of Cayo Costa Breeze, to finish Ed Robinson's last novel. Then two weeks ago, Breeze threw me a plot twist from way out in left field. For the last two weeks, I struggled to understand what he wanted me to do, barely adding a couple hundred words a day.
Then this morning, I stopped fighting the wheel and just let Breeze take over, the way I do with Jesse.
Over a thousand new words today!
And best of all, I know where Breeze wants to go now, and it jibes with the ending Ed's wife, Kim, and I came up with weeks ago. I have two weeks before I have to start the next Jesse book, and I doubt it will take me to the end of next week to finish Cayo Costa Breeze, the way it should be finished.
By Breeze.

This is awesome. My 2 favorite writers and characters all in 1!

Good luck with finishing the book. It can only end up being one He'll of a book well worth reading

I can’t wait to read it!!

I cannot wait. So glad you are doing this. Jesse and Breeze are my 2 favorite characters ever. I have read both series numerous times.

I’m really looking forward to this. We are all going to miss Ed and Breeze. #ShitWorksOut

Thanks for your efforts, Breeze and Ed will be smiling.

Fantastic news, I have all of Ed & your books so a new Breeze adventure is really welcome. It will bring some FLA sunshine to the north of England this winter/spring. Thanks again😁

Every time I read an update, I get sad and my heart pains all over again. I'm still glad this is happening though.

Can’t wait

Thank you Wayne, this means so much to Ed's family, friends, and fans. You're a good man.

Can’t wait for the read. Great testimony from you to Mr. Robinson❤️

Thank you Wayne and Kim

thanks for the update. So happy your the one writing Breeze's final chapter

Thanks for finishing up Ed's work. I know you will do Ed and Breeze proud!!

Can't wait to read it. I always thought that all series writers should write the last book. Then if something happens to them it is how they wanted it and ready to go. Ugh. Hate to think that way but it is real life.

Anticipating ...

Awesome. Can’t wait.

Looking forward to this, Can we preorder yet?

Glad you’re finishing the Breeze series I’m sure you will do it justice

So wonderful your helping is legacy. Was bummed hearing he passed on. Thanks for finishing this book.

I have no doubt you've done it justice and in a way that Ed would be proud of. I can't wait to read it, Wayne.

Wonderful! Hi and hugs to Miss Kim!

Just wonderful, can’t wait to read it. Thank you so much.

Awesome, can't wait to read this book!

Thanks Wayne!
