Happy New Year!

Image result for happy new year

Let’s bid 2018 goodbye and set forth into the new year! And I’m planning on kicking some ass in 2019…

Starting with a brand new release, TODAY. Forged Decisions, book two in my Tribal Spirits series comes out today! And if you haven’t checked out the Tribal Spirits series yet, Forged Alliances is on sale for only 99 cents to celebrate!

ForgedDecisions

When Finn falls for Navi, a member of the East Coast Tribe, he’ll have to choose between the pack and family who saved him and the unforgettable woman who’s made her mark.

Ever since Sierra and Dax mated, forming their alliance, Finn has been restless in his position as beta for the Red Rock pack. So, when Navi, the gorgeous, lethal member of the East Coast Tribe, conscripts him to help break up the Landsliders’ drug-running ring, he leaps on the opportunity. As they work together, their attraction deepens to more than comrades and far more than a one-night stand. Except Navi isn’t sticking around town forever and Finn has his own responsibilities tethering him to the Red Rock pack.

When the trail to the drug ring leads them to the man who murdered Finn’s parents, Finn’s forced to confront the fears he’s buried and, in the process, the connection between him and Navi grows scorching and unforgettable. However, with an underground meth lab to bust and his parents’ murderer to take down, Finn throws his heart and soul into the fight, because he knows, even if he survives this, he’ll be forever marked by the goodbyes to follow.

And that’s just the beginning! We’ve got a whole line-up for 2019 already, and that’s not even including books out on submission or in the pipeline. Hope you’re ready to read!

What story I’m currently working on:

So, those who wanted more progress on Hypnotizing Beat are going to be disappointed…I’m still at 10k. However, those who wanted progress on An Airship Carol will be happy, because I finished it at 11k!! It took something off of my overloaded plate, but I’m not ready to set into Hypnotizing Beat yet because I need to get an editing project finished–so my target’s been set on Taking Root. Once I get some of these projects cleared off, then I’ll be back in writing mode, and I might add Forged Contracts to the mix too.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Weeeeell, I got some more news for y’all. Not only did book two in my Tribal Spirits series, Forged Decisions, get picked up by Totally Bound Publishing, but Hunting for Spring found a new home at Soul Mate Publishing. PLUS, us Cupid’s Cafe authors just signed a contract with Inkspell Publishing, so our series will be returning to that new home! Also, I’m currently gearing up for Captivating Melody‘s release on June 25th! I made MAJOR progress on the editing front with Taking Root, which I’m super happy about, and I’m keeping with the slow and steadies on Musketeer Pirates. If you’re waiting for Colors of a Soul, my Little Mermaid retelling, pre-order Legends of the Veil!

Teaser of the week:

“Maybe being surrounded by rockstars has me looking for a regular guy.” Liz locked gazes with Kieran, challenge flashing in her eyes. The poor bartender was getting dragged into batt

Line of the week:

Powdery white bullshit drifted down onto my head, settling there the same way it had begun to accumulate across the Desire’s deck. Taking a flamethrower to the approaching blizzard was ill-advised, at least by Isabella and Geoff. I, for one, still held hopes that I could burn that fluffy snow away.

Throwback Thursday: Captured Memories

Capturered Memories Ebook.jpg

An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

After the incident that caused Liv Morozov to drop out of college, years later she’s still trying to pick up the pieces of her life. She’s managed to carve out a career for herself as a photographer, but when it comes to guys? Her issues send them running for the hills, every damn time.

Zane Parata has declared himself off-limits for relationships. Between trying to maintain sobriety and the long hours he works as a chef, no one wants to deal with his brand of damage, and he wouldn’t want to burden them in the first place.

When Liv shows up at Cupid’s Café, she never expected to find Zane, her brother’s former best friend who had vanished one day and never returned. The sparks that surged when they were both teens rekindle stronger than ever, and all too fast, Liv and Zane entangle in each other’s lives, breaking their own rules. Except with both struggling with the demons from their past, the love that’s begun to grow is one lapse away from shattering the two of them beyond repair.

What story I’m currently working on:

Closing in on the end of Taking Root at 49k. It’s a wild ride, and I’m down to the final chapters, so I’m going to guarantee that I’ll be finished this book by the next update! I love the race to the end once you get to a certain point in a story–it’s like crack for me. Once I finish Taking Root, I’ll be switching over to Hypnotizing Beat in full force, and I started tweaking around with the playlist to get all geared up for it.

What I’m editing/marketing:

The waiting, the waiting, the WAAAAAITING. So, not only am I trying to rehome Philly Coven Chronicles and Tribal Spirits, but we’re also rehoming Cupid’s Cafe. A lot of my books are pulled at the moment and ouch, it hurts. Cross fingers and send positive vibes that I get some good news soon! I finished Colors of a Soul, the title of the fae novella for Legends of the Veil, and then I sent it off to the editor! I’m stoked to have another thing off my plate, and because of that I was able to dive back into Musketeer Pirates! EEEE! Also, not only is Gaslights and Graves out, but now Legends of the Veil is available for pre-order!

Teaser of the week:

Candace brandished a pint glass at the ready. Ale could soothe most of these ruffians, and she_d become adept at taming tempers.

Line of the week:

“Three?” he leaned forward. “Please don’t tell me you enjoyed the third Terminator movie.”

“First my electronica and now T3?” Danny splayed her hand over her chest in mock horror. “How are we together again?”

Adrian shrugged, popping a piece of General Tso’s into his mouth. “I figured you only wanted me for my body.”
