What story I’m currently working on:
Another slow writing week, but there happened to be a major wrench in my plans, sigh. After Glows Publishing is going through a reorganization process, so my Cupid’s Cafe book is also on hiatus. So, I returned my attention to Taking Root and have continued writing the follow up chapter to what I had prepped for the proposal. I figure I’ll just keep trucking away at that one until I get some news to push me in a direction. It’s been a ton of fun so far.
What I’m editing/marketing: Continuing to work on synopses and queries, but I’m making some headway and sent out the first submissions. I finished the Wanderers edit, and it’s STUNNING. I also got the beta reads back for the fae novella, so I started doing some edits on that–though, I have time since it’s not due until July! Once that’s done, I’m returning to Musketeer Pirates to spiffy it the hell up. My young adult fairytale, A Reflection of Ice came out three weeks ago, same with Corsets and Cogs, which hit bestseller and is now available in paperback!! In upcoming news, the other steampunk boxset I’m in, Gaslights and Graves, is available for pre-order!

Teaser of the week:
Line of the week:
“Going to pull a Cinderella once midnight strikes?” he asked, barely able to hear his own words amidst the pulsing music and the bodies twisting and turning around them. He didn’t want tonight to end. He wanted the chance to get to know her in a real, lasting way like the imprints she’d left on his memory all those years ago.
Her lips quirked in a smile that didn’t reach her eyes, the sadness gleaming in those mesmerizing jade eyes. “Wouldn’t be any fun otherwise,” she responded. “Got to leave a little mystery or I’ll lose my allure.”
Disappointment curled in his chest, but she pressed her body against his, her nails digging into his shoulders. Not only did that lithe body of hers strike a fresh match to embers that he thought had died, but her vibrancy and her lonely fight made him want in a way he’d forgotten.
