What story I’m currently working on:

I slacked off with the Paranormal Western, only hitting 9k, but that’s okay, because I picked up steam with Of Alchemists and Arsonists, hitting 7k. I think this steampunk foray should be a blast, and it’ll feel nice to finish up a series, so I’m picking up speed with it given that in mind. Honestly, my two favorite things with series is both starting and ending them. I adore the initial spark of whimsy and inspiration that involves a first book in a series, and I also adore the finality of finishing up with one, being able to close out the series and feel content with its completion. I live for trilogies, because they’re such a tight structure, and the Whitfield Files has been fun thus far.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Currently, I’m waiting on beta feedback for Tempting Ballad so I can begin to crack into the edits for that. It’s going to feel great to send that off to submission in a month or two. Which also leaves room to begin the FINAL Discord’s Desire book as well. With all of these conclusions coming up, I’m hoping for some good news in the Outlaws or Dungeons and Dating front, as both series are going to be a massive amount of fun. I’m also currently working on polishing up an older manuscript which has been interesting, to say the least.

Line of the week:

“If you need a building set on fire, then I’m your girl,” Belle offered with a half-smile. Sitting across from him and enjoying a pint was the closest she’d been to anyone outside of Blair’s crew for years. External associations were frowned upon, and after the Ellie incident, he locked those doors even tighter.

“Given that I own a very flammable storefront, I’d much prefer you on my side than against it,” Nate murmured back, an amused grin on his lips. The man had no right to be as handsome as he was, and sitting this close to him, she caught a whiff of bergamot and vetiver that coursed through her with surprising intensity. The man’s proximity was addling her mind, especially after witnessing the kindness he’d shown to her yesterday.

Men like Nate Whitfield were rare.

What story I’m currently working on:

I still didn’t write anything, but it’s totally fine. My priorities were with the other aspects of the job, like editing and marketing. I’m staring at Tempting Ballad, but it’s hard to dive back in after the entire-book-long excursion I took. Regardless, I’m going to get some more wordage done on it in August for sure. Over the next few days I should have recharged my well enough to dive back into the writing end of things.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Well, A Thief’s Crusade is now safely in a submission box, so I can attempt to put it out of my mind for the next few months. (Like that’s going to happen…) I’m kind of left with a hollow feeling after finishing two projects I loved so damn much, which is probably the sign to take a bit of a break and refill my well. I’ve got a class to plan, so I’m switching to that. Last week was also big for two releases, 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!

“He knew too well the sting of loneliness and how over time it stole you away, piece by piece, until a mere shell remained.”

Line of the week:

Jett sank into the seat beside him and cast a surveying glance around the room. “What do you think the prospects are like tonight?”

Renn wrinkled his nose as he glanced around. He spotted a couple of stunners by the bar, from the brunette girl with the smoky eyes to the hot guy with the flame red hair. “I’ve got a couple in mind already, but I’m willing to grab some food with you lot before I go to pillage.” He wanted every spare second he could with their makeshift family, before he headed to Boston Harbor Hotel tonight.

“So benevolent,” Liz drawled. “Gracing us mere mortals with your presence.”
