What story I’m currently working on:

And I’m slowly continuing to increase the wordage! While not a knock it out of the park week, I’m back to steadily writing, which is a joy and relief. Through December and early January, I was wondering if I’d lost my mojo. But I’ve passed the midway point of this book and I’m getting closer and closer to a conclusion–which if my nebulous bullet points turn out the way I want them to might be a rip-roaring end.

What I’m editing/marketing:

I still have Saving Throw and A Thief’s Crusade in limbo where they’re just spinning in circles for awhile. My goal for this year with them is to have answers for you of where they’re going (hopefully out in the world, because I love both books so much!). However, I realized it’s okay for those to take time, since again, they begin two new series. Even though Eros Tales is on pause, I’m still going to continue writing that series until I have all five books ready for a lightning release in 2024. And after I finish Tempting Ballad, both Whitfield Files and Discord’s Desire will only have one book left in both series! GOALS!

Line of the week:

Leo leaned back, digging his elbows into the mattress. He looked up at Renn, and the moment their eyes met, Renn’s breath snagged. That gaze flickered with a yearning strong enough to set a city ablaze. Like he could even hope to fight against the surge in his chest in response, the sharp twist of longing that made it difficult to think, to reason, to breathe.

Renn hadn’t said anything while Leo talked. What could he say? Most words during his worst times just made him want to punch people in the face. However, as he straddled Leo and their gazes refused to budge, the words reached his lips at last.

“Let me take care of you tonight,” Renn murmured, the softness in his voice this foreign thing, like he wasn’t the one speaking.

What story I’m currently working on:

I hit 41k in Tempting Ballad, so already in a week I’m picking up speed. I’m hoping to at least reach 70k or finish the book by the end of the month, which I think would be doable. The plot is starting to unfold and I’m finally passing the big midway twist, but I think this book is going to be longer than the last since I’ve got some bridging to do to get the overplot where it needs to be for the next novel.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Saving Throw and A Thief’s Crusade are in limbo and will probably continue to be for the first half of the year since they’re out on varying levels of submission. Once I get homes for those though, it’ll start up two brand new series, so I’m going to spend a lot of this year trying to finish up pre-existing series. (Looking at you, Whitfield Files and Discord’s Desire) I finished edits on Of Coppers and Cracksmen and got offered the contract, so next on the agenda for that series is the final book, Of Alchemists and Arsonists!

Teaser of the week:

“Hope you enjoy the show then, darling.” Heat flickered in his amber eyes, and his lowered voice made the implication quite clear.

Line of the week:

“Besides,” Leo cut in, resting a hand on his shoulder. The heavy weight felt grounding in a way Renn wasn’t used to. “I’m simply enjoying a stroll through the marketplace with my lover and my business associate. The warning to the King of the hunter’s attack came from an alternate source. With all the King’s fighters crowded in there and ready to rip heads, I can’t afford to be tied to anything.”

Renn shot him the side-eye. “Like you’d ever be willing to get tied to anything.”

“That’s your kink, not mine, sweetheart,” Leo purred, that gravel voice coursing right through him like pure sex.

New projects written:

I’ve got the starts to two new series in progress, both A Thief’s Crusade (Outlaws #1) and Saving Throw (Dungeons and Dating #1) which I’m trying to find homes for. I’m hoping for some good news in the new year with both of those.

There were a LOT of complications this year. In all honesty, it burned me out of publishing a bit, and I’m taking a bit of a step back. I’ll continue to write the series I’ve started, but I’m not pushing nearly as hard because of how much this year really wrecked me.

There was a complication with the new Eros Tales series I started, and while I’m going to be writing the entire series over the next few years, the entire thing won’t come out until 2024 when I’m planning on doing a rapid release. Pomegranate’s Kiss, #2 in the series is already written and I’m planning on writing #3 out of 5 next year. I’m also going to be midway through Discord’s Desire #3, Tempting Ballad, which I’m hoping will come out next year. This year was a lot of catch up, considering most of the novels and novellas that came out were re-releases of stories that were previously with other publishers.

Despite all of the pitfalls this year, I’m going to continue on, just at a bit of a slower pace. Regardless, I am so grateful for all of you wonderful readers and for the gift of my publishers believing in me enough to release my stories out into the world.

What story I’m currently working on:

So, I did the first baby step into continuing Tempting Ballad, getting it up to 33k. I’ll be continuing it tomorrow and I’m hoping to just get 10k further into the book by the end of the year, which seems like a doable goal. I hope so at least, because I want to have that book ready to come out next year.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Saving Throw and A Thief’s Crusade are out on submission, so hopefully that can lead to decent things down the line, but all of that is going to take time. Post the holidays I should be getting back to the book grind more heavily, including finishing up Of Coppers and Cracksmen to get it to the publisher. That means in 2020 I’ve got to be writing Of Alchemists and Arsonists too, which should be an interesting final jaunt in this odd, steampunky universe.

Line of the week:

Of course, the assholes sent a barrage of texts but no actual explanation why they were having a band meeting in the RV. He’d gotten a dozen or so eggplant emojis in his inbox too, thanks to Ky and Danica. Apart from salacious details on the mind-melting sex with Leo Kincaid he’d overshare to his bandmates, any other thoughts on the man were locked away, even from himself. The lingering warmth in his chest as he finished off the scone begged to differ, but he’d become a vet at ignoring pesky emotions.

Word Count: A lot

What story I’m currently working on:

Oh damn, I am WAY behind! Like an entire month of missed word count updates! So, funny enough, from a month ago, I’ve only gotten 2k ahead in Tempting Ballad–to 32k, because I completely switched gears. Not only did I finish out Of Coppers and Cracksmen for NaNoWriMo at 40k, but I also wrote and submitted a 4500 word short story to Totally Bound which will be a free read, a short sexy scene from Tribal Spirits. Life has clearly been insane, but I’m still trucking! Next week onward, I’m going to get back on track with Tempting Ballad.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Well, Dungeons and Dating not only has a title, Saving Throw, but it’s also out on submission to a bunch of places. I also began the onslaught of submissions for A Thief’s Crusade, so fingers crossed. It’s been a bit since I’ve gone through the submission mill, which is always an excruciating experience. I’m done with releases this year, but the only two I have on the books for next year are Rising for Autumn and Waking for Winter. However, on the positive, I’ve got Of Coppers and Cracksmen most of the way finished and will get that submitted before the year’s end!

Her mouth curled into a sensual smile, and her hazel eyes glowed with the challenge. “Do your worst, Finn Kelly.”

Line of the week:

Even if Leo had fast grown far more attached than he’d ever given himself permission to. Renn Cantrell wasn’t just a pretty face with a talent for drums and a lithe body made for sex. The man’s dedication struck a chord in him, how he’d defy his flesh and blood and sacrifice so much to keep searching for his sister, even after all these years. After all, he’d done and would continue to do the same for those precious few he truly loved.
