Rising for Autumn Cover Reveal!

RisingForAutumn

Book #3 in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles, Rising for Autumn, will be out in April of next year!

Crisis and danger have become second nature for Alanna Carrington—after all, as the boss of the Philadelphia Coven, she’s responsible for upholding the laws amongst the supernatural. Which means when the Order of the Serpent rears its ugly head, this time with the most powerful necromancer this city’s ever seen, she’s the one person who can keep Philly safe. Ex-Order djinn and now ally, Samuel Karim happens to be the best suited guy to help. Except he’s also the first man who’s stoked her interest in far too long, and ever since she commandeered the lamp he’s tethered to for safekeeping, he also hates her guts.

As the Order gathers the necromancers of her city and sparks a dangerous alliance, she finds herself working with Samuel Karim more and more. Hatred burns to passion, and when he exhibits a strength and compassion that breaks through her ironclad defenses, she finds herself falling deeper despite the complications between them. Yet with her city under siege and their lives on the line, the sharp desire between them erupts into the temptation to break their own rules, before the Order of the Serpent robs them of the chance permanently.

Weekly Word Count 11/13/19

Word Count: 20460

What story I’m currently working on:

So, this is two weeks of wordage, since apparently I missed last week’s update! As you can see, I’m going steady with NaNoWriMo, though my original plan got tweaked a bit. I had planned on throwing the entirety of NaNo into Tempting Ballad, but I decided to rework the end concept of the book and the following one so that I don’t need an in between novella. Yet that means Tempting Ballad is probably going to be 10k longer than planned, so I’m going to give myself a little extra time on that one. Besides, Whitfield #2 has a due date for early next year, so I’m better off trying to get the 30-40k novella finished in November and then continuing on at a reasonable clip with Tempting Ballad. Currently I’m at 12k in Of Coppers and Cracksmen, and 30k in Tempting Ballad.

What I’m editing/marketing:

So I’ve gotten most of the feedback for Dungeons and Dating, and I’m actually through a lot of the line by line edits. My goal is to have this book ready for submission by early December (ideally by PitMad). I’m also going to use PitMad as my litmus test for if it’s time to move on to sending A Thief’s Crusade out to publishers. After all, Scrying for Summer and Captured Memories came out last week and they were my last releases for 2019. Next year the only ones I’ve got officially in the book are Rising for Autumn and Waking for Winter. Which means I’ve got to get writing!

Line of the week:

The satiation flooding his bones was something new, a quieting he’d only ever felt around this man. Renn lifted a finger to trail down Kincaid’s chest, those marbled pecs glistening with sweat.

“Don’t tell me that’s all you’ve got,” Renn murmured, needing to distract himself from the way those feelings sunk claws into him. He met Kincaid’s eyes with a cocky grin.

Leo shook his head, a grin spreading wide enough to reveal his fangs. “I thought you knew me better than that.” He sank back down and pressed a kiss on his lips again. When he pulled back, he murmured against his mouth. “We’ve got all night, gorgeous.”

Scrying for Summer Release Day!

ScryingForSummer

Book two in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles, Scrying for Summer, is available TODAY! Join Jev and Liam in this ridiculously fun adventure!

Jev was looking for an adventure, however she wanted the usual variety of stomping out nasty fae in the city as an enforcer of the Philly Coven. Instead, handsome-as-sin Liam O’Reilly shows up on her doorstep dropping news of the worst organization of fae they’d dealt with on the rise again. Except, he’s a traitor, an asshole, and the absolute last person she wants to work with.

However, the longer they work together, the more the fire between them burns, turning from rage and irritation into something primal. And as she gets to know the real Liam O’Reilly behind the charming smiles and sexy lines, he becomes so much deadlier. Because the protective, self-sacrificing man underneath the facade is just the sort she could fall for.

Hunting for Spring FREE day!

HuntingForSpring

Nab your copy of Hunting for Spring for FREE today in celebration of the release of Scrying for Summer, book two in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles, on Wednesday!

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.

What story I’m currently working on:

I got a little bit of Tempting Ballad worked on and then I also wrote a paragraph in Whitfield Files #2, though I didn’t get nearly as much worked on as I hoped for in launching back into writing. I’m planning on going full force for NaNo in November, so maybe I can make up for lost time then. I didn’t plan on this whole getting sick thing, which has wiped me out half of the week.

What I’m editing/marketing:

I started diving into content edits of Dungeons and Dating, did some line edits on it, so pretty much all I’ll need to do are final content edits and the big vibrancy, cliche, and grammatical passes. I’m thinking I’ll be done by the end of the year, which is all sorts of excite. Currently, I have A Thief’s Crusade out on submission, but if I don’t have any luck by December, I’m going to start submitting to more publishers. I really want the Outlaws series to come out for you guys next year. Also, Color of a Soul is now available in audio, and next week both Scrying for Summer and Captured Memories come out!

“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.”

Line of the week:

Renn rolled his eyes. “All work and no play makes Leo a pent-up boy.” He knew the man had a one-track mind for his goals in the same way he had a one-track mind for sex. “So far, you haven’t come close to meeting my sex drive’s requirements. I can always pop off for a snack on the side.” He knew he was goading the man on, but damn was it fun.

A growl came from Kincaid’s lips, and he rose from what he was doing to stalk over in his direction. Those hands gripped his wrists like iron and all Kincaid needed to give was the slightest shove for him to fall back onto the bed. Renn’s grin widened.

What story I’m currently working on:

I wrote way too much last week, so this week you get NOTHING. Seriously though, it’s all about balance. To write that much in a week means I’ve got to push other things to the back burner, and the next book on my agenda is getting back to Tempting Ballad. I’d say I’m excited to get back to it, but I’ve got a LOT to figure out. I’m going to try to set some groundwork before next week when NaNo starts.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Well, I sent out my Dungeons and Dating book to beta readers, and then I also did a round of line edits on it to smooth things out before I do contents and then go line by line to add depth/eliminate cliches. Color of a Soul should be out in audio book any day now, which is exciting. I’ve got Hallowread this weekend, so I’ll be selling books there, which means bustling around for last minute scraps to put at my table. If you missed the news, Scrying for Summer is up for pre-order! And coming out the day before that is Captured Memories, the third book in the Cupid’s Cafe series!

Line of the week:

“Are you coming back to the RV?” Liz asked. She cast a glance to the door. “We’re currently parked in a lot up the street for convenience.” Renn’s shoulders tensed again, almost imperceptible, but after spending some time in close quarters with him, those slight signals were becoming all the easier to read.

“Or, alternately, you could enjoy some privacy,” Kincaid stepped in. “I’m sure a few rooms have opened up by now. I’ll book them if you say the word.” Waking up with Renn in his bed this morning had offered a brush of relief when he needed it the most. There was something to be said about waking up with another person beside you, something about the proximity that made the world feel a little less lonely. And he’d been feeling lonely for a long time.

“Oh fuck yes,” Danica breathed. “Sorry, guys, but I’d like some time where I don’t have to try and keep quiet because Liz and Kieran are bunked right above us.”

Liz shrugged. “If you’re paying, I wouldn’t say no to some alone time.”
