Weekly Word Count #174

Word Count: 8007

What story I’m currently working on:

Well, I slowed down a bit on Hypnotizing Beat again, which I’m at 48k with, but for good reason. A. This book is harrrrd *whines*, but also B. I hit 6k with Forged Futures! Hurray! I’m still working on pushing forward with Hypnotizing Beat and am determined to finish it by the end of the year, but Forged Futures is giving me all of the feelings. I’m smitten with the Tribal Spirits series and I’m so excited to finish it next year.

What I’m editing/marketing:

By some miracle, I have a polished, solid query for The Lies We Weave, so I’m just working on gussying up the final version of the book. But I’m absolutely descending back into release mode, because I’ve got Bustles and Bells coming out on October 29th, Forged Alliances set to release November 13th, aaaaaand A Reflection of Ice is back online with a brand new cover!

Line of the week:

“Thanks for coming to my rescue earlier,” she responded, clutching tight to her knees as her chin burrowed into them. “I was seconds away from the same fate as my husband.”

His fingers twitched at the sight of her curled up on the couch, emanating a vulnerability that tangled with the fibers of his heart. She could fight—he’d seen her take care of the wolf out there, but she was so wide open with her grief, with her fear, with everything. He wanted to wrap his arms around her on instinct.

“Any time, doll,” he responded. “I’m a sucker for a dramatic entrance.” He tipped his fingers in her direction as he headed for the door.

A Reflection of Ice is back!

ebook

Shortest wait ever! Grab your copy HERE!

Snow Queen meets Bluebeard in this chilling fairy tale…

Lyra plunges into the woods for refuge, leaving the discovery of her stepmother’s affair and the woman’s ensuing rage back at the trailer park. However, a mysterious ringing in the forest leads her to a different sort of sanctuary, a castle of ice with a lonely prince living in his solitary kingdom.

While the castle holds haunting ballrooms, vast gardens, and rooms filled with more treasures than a museum, the cobwebs in dark corners whisper a different story. The longer she stays, the more she yearns to return to her rusty old home. Yet once she uncovers the secret of the ice prince in his castle, if she doesn’t find a way to escape soon, she never will.

Weekly Word Count #173

Word Count: 9508

What story I’m currently working on:

Slow but steady on Hypnotizing Beat! I hit 45k on it, and I’m continuing to make my strides forward. With any luck, I’ll finish it by the end of the month or at least by the end of November. However, since things are a bit slow for me lately and it’s still a slog with Hypnotizing Beat, I’m allowing myself to work on Forged Futures once I get my necessary word count done for the Discord’s Desire book. Because I really want to write Lana and Lucas’s story!

What I’m editing/marketing:

I’m currently diving into the final rounds of edits for The Lies We Weave AND even polishing up the query! Right now, I’m less in editing mode and more in buy-buy, sell-sell mode because Bustles and Bells, the steampunk Christmas anthology I’m a part of, is up for pre-order now, as is Forged Alliances which is set to release November 13th!

Line of the week:

Even with the nerves running up and down his arms and legs like flame, Trevor allowed himself to grin and laugh with his bandmates. It was hard not to with the ridiculous way Ren piped, headbanging up and down to his own music. Or how Kieran fondled that mic like he owed it a favor. Even Jett dove into the fray, sneaking his own brand of misheard lyrics into their song, pickle instead of fickle, or heartbroken as Hoboken.

Forged Contracts is under…Contract!

animal-animal-photography-blur-397854

Forged Contracts is coming out next May with Totally Bound Publishing! Add it on Goodreads now!

Jeremiah Taylor’s responsibilities as the new pack beta are crushing him, especially with the unpredictable mood shifts since his shaman-supplied bipolar meds ran out. It’s the combination for doing something stupid, like kissing the one woman he’s never let himself pursue—his best friend Raven Takahashi.

When Finn left the Red Rock pack, Raven’s on and off again fling took her safety net with him—the one barrier keeping her from the raw and real way she feels around Jer. The moment the Pandora’s box opens after they kiss, she can no longer deny the sparks between them or hide from the demons of her past.

And when one of those demons shows up in Beaver Tavern representing an anti-shifter group to take over their land, Raven’s secrets threaten to get dragged into the light, which could cost her everything—her friends, her pack, and her home. However, if she and Jer don’t thwart the anti-shifter group’s takeover attempts, the entire Red Rock pack might find themselves banished from their own land.

Weekly Word Count #172

Word Count: 6006

What story I’m currently working on:

I’m continuing to make my baby steps forward with Hypnotizing Beat! It’s moving so much more slowly than my Tribal Spirits books, but at the same point, I’m still putting progress into the book, and it’s getting easier as I go. I’m at 36k, so I’m hoping to reach 60k by the end of the month. If I really find my groove, I might be lucky enough to finish the book before November!

What I’m editing/marketing:

I’m editing The Lies We Weave right now, which is going smoother than I thought! However, I keep diving down more worldbuilding rabbit holes which have been super fun. On the positive, Bustles and Bells, the steampunk Christmas anthology I’m a part of, will be coming out for pre-order and sale this month! AND, Forged Alliances is already on pre-order, set to release November 13th!

Teaser of the week:

“Because if I fell any deeper for the way his eyes crinkled with his smile or his habit of tapping on his nose to emphasize a point, my ship would be sunk.”

Currently listening to:

Line of the week:

Those long fingertips, the ones she’d had dirty daydreams about, brushed along her chin. Danica looked up at him. Trevor didn’t say anything, but his gaze glowed with a hearthfire understanding that scorched right through her. His breathing had evened, and his hand no longer trembled. Danica’s chest felt hollowed, as if someone had clawed at her insides and scooped them out. They should be looking around for an escape, a distraction, anything. However, she could as much tear herself from Trevor’s gaze as she could escape a hurricane.

Pre-Order Forged Alliances!

ForgedAlliances_PromoSquareTB_preorder

Guys, I’m thrilled to announce that book one of my Tribal Spirits series is available for pre-order! Nab a copy of this re-edited shifter romance HERE!

Sierra and Dax’s alliance is already rocky. He’s a cocky wiseass, and she doesn’t put up with bullshit. So, when a mating bond appears between them, it threatens to send them both running.

Sierra Kanoska fought hard for her position as wolf alpha of the Red Rock pack, and intruders in her territory receive the full brunt of what her claws, fangs and smarts can accomplish. So, when Dax Williams, de facto alpha of the Silver Springs pack, pays an unwelcome visit, Sierra’s ready to toss him out. However, the pack elders sabotaged Dax’s fight for alpha against his brother, driving him from his lands. Sierra hates underhanded crap like that, so she agrees on an alliance.

As they work together, she witnesses an alpha who wants to do right by his pack, not just a cocky wiseass. Their growing attraction blazes hot, but the moment she and Dax lock lips, a mating bond emerges. Sierra sure as hell isn’t ready to share that intimate connection with a stranger and the thought of forever sends Dax running.

Before they can talk, the Tribe commanding the East Coast shifters arrives to settle the dispute. Dax and his brother’s punishment for their pack’s civil war is a free-for-all on their lands. Not only does he have to defeat his brother, but any challenger in the region. Despite Dax and Sierra’s initial resistance, his wily charm relaxes her control-freak tendencies while her steadfast support bolsters his strength. Yet every new opponent places their newfound relationship under siege—one misstep, one wrong blow in the ring, and Dax could leave in a bodybag.
