Twenty Books Published!

affair-anniversary-asad-1024960

My first book, An Airship Named Desire, got published with Hazardous Press in 2012.

Come August, I’ll have been a published author for seven years now, and I have to say the amount I’ve learned in that time has been immense.

For the longest time, twenty books was my goal. It offered something tangible to work towards in an industry where everything is constantly in flux. I hadn’t planned on doing any self-publishing, but when Hazardous Press, Jupiter’s Garden Press, Breathless Press, Loose Id, Ellora’s Cave, and After Glows Publishing ALL closed down, I went different routes with each of the books. With the sheer number of press closures I was in the middle of, I had begun to feel cursed.

Still, twenty kept me in the game. I’d built in my head twenty as the magic number, where I’d finally spill over into the success I’d been chasing. And now that I’m here at twenty, am I where I thought I’d be? Not in the slightest. However, the mind likes to dream big, whereas real progress is measured by different markers. Has my writing improved in that time? Staggeringly. Each book has me learning new techniques and expanding my horizons. Have I been able to beat my own sales records? I have, and that is something to take pride in.

So, while twenty books isn’t the fanfare and confetti I once imagined it might be, I can still appreciate the discipline learned and how setting that goal gave me a push I needed to keep writing and keep creating. And if I can keep up that trend, I feel like I’ll continue climbing up that mountain until I reach the top.

See you all at forty books!

What story I’m currently working on:

I didn’t write anything this week and I’m not even sorry. Come on, I did like a month’s worth of words last week alone! Plus, I had two back to back releases, AND a whole lot of editing to do. But, next on my agenda will probably be Tempting Ballad, Renn and Kincaid’s book, thoooough I’m not going to lie, I have a certain Dukas sibling’s book percolating in the back of my brain for the next Eros Tales book!

What I’m editing/marketing:

I’ve been massively diving into edits on A Thief’s Crusade, and I’m really hoping to do a good job on this one. I love Grif Blackmore and the Outlaws so much, and the whole found family thing always tugs at my heart strings. I’m also coming off of the high of two releases in one week with first, Taking Root, the first book in the Eros Tales series, and then Hunting for Spring‘s re-release, the first book in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles series!

Teaser of the week:

“Trevor had lived a long time, but he hadn’t dared believe he’d ever see the stripped down and unplugged version of Danica Maslanka.”(1)

Line of the week:

Liz’s phone began to buzz, and she gave Ky the nudge off her lap. He let out a mix between a whine and a groan while she made her way closer to the front of the RV.

“Poor baby,” Jett called over to him. “You can come sit in my lap.”

Renn flashed a grin. “You can sit in mine and come.” Jett let out an annoyed noise while Ky’s eyes crinkled with amusement. He let out a bark of a laugh.

Hunting for Spring Release Day!

HuntingForSpring

Did you miss the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles? I know I did! If you haven’t checked out my Philadelphia Coven Chronicles series the first time around, you definitely won’t want to miss out. And even if you checked it out before, this book has been completely revamped. Grab your copy HERE!

Hunters are a lonely breed, and Conor’s no exception, until the day he meets Brenna. Even though she slinks in unannounced and kills the wight he was hunting down, the girl’s a mystery and he can’t get that blinding smile or those gorgeous curves off his mind. Since they’re both after the same caster who’s unleashing these monsters, he suggests teaming up, and despite her initial reluctance, the hungry way she scans him down promises something powerful.

However, her secrets have repercussions, and faster than Conor can lift his Glock, he’s drawn into the web of kidnappings and Unseelie mischief, all concealing the machinations of a darker foe—one that plans to bring Philly to ruin.

Taking Root Release Day!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000447_00006]

The Eros Tales series is a combination of my love for Greek myths and family series. Not only is each book in the series based on a different Greek myth, but also features a different member of the Dukas family. I just finished writing book two, and I’m really hoping you all will love it as much as I did.

Grab your copy of the start of the series HERE!

I’ve been burned by my ex-fiancée and sentenced myself to long shifts at the hospital ever since. There’s no way I’d give anyone else the opportunity to break my heart again.

Until chance brings me face to face with the girl from my past.

Danielle is still as beautiful as ever, and seeing her reminds me of how I felt about her—how I still feel about her.

But she’s changed. I can see it when I look into her eyes. It’s like she’s no longer living, but merely existing. An enigma laden with secrets from her past—secrets that are forcing her to run from me. Only this time, I won’t let her get away so easily.

I’m determined to peel away every layer of secrets she carries around her, and to protect her from whatever it is that’s causing her to run.

Danielle Reynolds will not slip through my fingers again.

This time…she stays.
