What story I’m currently working on:
Well, I slowed down a little this week, mostly because I had some external factors and my focus was crap. Hypnotizing Beat is still chilling at 12k, but Forged Contracts has bumped up to 17k! I’m still hoping to hit 30k with it by the end of July, as I’ve got a lot planned for it. Raven and Jer’s story is going to grip you by the throat from page one and not let go–intense is the name of the game here.
What I’m editing/marketing:
So, I have The Airship Also Rises formatted for the most part, and I did do a smidge of work on Musketeer Pirates, but the major edits I delved into were the line edits for both Forged Decision and Forged Alliances! No wonder I didn’t have the time to get extra written this past week. On the plus, both books are completely ready to come out next year! Still waiting to hear about the final two Philly Coven Chronicles books, but hopefully we see some movement there so that wonderful series can start hitting the shelves again! And my next release is only a couple of weeks away, with Legends of the Veil coming out August 1st!

Teaser of the week:
Line of the week:
“Mackey Kendricks,” Jer responded, loping forward to catch up with her. “Did you know him from your Landslider days?”
Her shoulders tensed a fraction at the mention of his name. “Everyone knew Kendricks,” was all she said. The coldness in her tone implied more than she let on. Raven didn’t turn around to look at him, and Jer stayed a pace or two behind on purpose. Something in the way she held herself right now was so remote that direct contact, anything that brought her to reality, might spook her.
“Jer?” she said, that same lightness in her tone, the one that caused goosebumps to rise along his arms.
“Yeah, Rae?” he stepped up to the doorframe even though she already strode paces ahead towards her car.
“If you see Mackey, don’t try to hunt him down. Don’t try to fight him. Just run.”
