Forged Alliances Release Day!

ForgedAlliances_PromoSquareTB_outnow

So much can change in a year. Around this time last year, Forged Alliances had just come out with Loose Id, and I was full of excitement to be pushing forward on a brand new series. And then….December hit, and Loose Id announced their closure. While my second book was on submission, of course. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t devastate me. I loved working with that publisher, and I was so sad to see them go. On top of that, since the official closure wouldn’t hit until June, I wasn’t about to go and write the third book until I found a new home for them.

So, I waited.

I expected it to be a long time until I could find a home for this series, however, Totally Bound happened to open up submissions in June, and I leapt on the opportunity. I had long been interested in that publisher, but they’d been closed. In a sweep of serendipity, I submitted Forged Alliances, and it got accepted. At once, I dove into book three again, desperate to dive back into this world. I am so in love with these shifters and this series, and I’m so thrilled to bring them back to you with book one, Forged Alliances.

“Mislabeled the sign,” a cocky voice called from the door. “Should read ‘Doggie Daycare_ with the amount of pups packed into this place.” The man_s eyes twinkled with his l

Sierra Kanoska fought hard for her position as wolf alpha of the Red Rock pack, and intruders in her territory receive the full brunt of what her claws, fangs and smarts can accomplish. So, when Dax Williams, de facto alpha of the Silver Springs pack, pays an unwelcome visit, Sierra’s ready to toss him out. However, the pack elders sabotaged Dax’s fight for alpha against his brother, driving him from his lands. Sierra hates underhanded crap like that, so she agrees on an alliance.

As they work together, she witnesses an alpha who wants to do right by his pack, not just a cocky wiseass. Their growing attraction blazes hot, but the moment she and Dax lock lips, a mating bond emerges. Sierra sure as hell isn’t ready to share that intimate connection with a stranger and the thought of forever sends Dax running.

Before they can talk, the Tribe commanding the East Coast shifters arrives to settle the dispute. Dax and his brother’s punishment for their pack’s civil war is a free-for-all on their lands. Not only does he have to defeat his brother, but any challenger in the region. Despite Dax and Sierra’s initial resistance, his wily charm relaxes her control-freak tendencies while her steadfast support bolsters his strength. Yet every new opponent places their newfound relationship under siege—one misstep, one wrong blow in the ring, and Dax could leave in a bodybag.

Music Monday- Forged Alliances

Getting my Music Monday on with the release of Forged Alliances tomorrow!

1. I Don’t Wanna Live Forever- ZAYN/Taylor Swift

This song had a kinda sexy vibe to it which worked for the scorching chemistry between Dax and Sierra. Even though Sierra’s all blunt edges, stubbornness, and flames, Dax was lazy seduction with a cocky confidence that worked so well with her.

2. Friction- Imagine Dragons

This book had a lot of shifter fights involved, and this was my favorite song to play when I was working on the challenger fights. It has an intense beat and a pulse-pounding intensity that got me in the right mindset.

3. Begging for Thread- Banks

Another sensual song, this one worked perfectly for the sex scenes later on. As Dax and Sierra get to know each other more and more, their chemistry becomes explosive and undeniable, which the inexorable seduction of this melody highlighted.

4. Wolves- Selena Gomez

How could I not have this song on the playlist? Since this was the kick-off of my shifter series, I had to include this one, for the energetic beat and the lyrics.

5. Revolution- The Score

I especially loved the line ‘all my wolves begin to howl’ because within seconds of starting this series, they were ‘my wolves’ and ‘my mountain lions’. I fell hard for the Red Rock and Silver Spring packs, and the energy in this song made it perfect for big scenes between the packs.

What’s your next project on the horizon: The fourth book in the Tribal Spirits series! Book two, Forged Decisions is coming out January 1st, and book three, Forged Contracts, is coming out May 21st!

Dive into the first book of the Tribal Spirits series now: Forged Alliances!

Sierra and Dax’s alliance is already rocky. He’s a cocky wiseass, and she doesn’t put up with bullshit. So, when a mating bond appears between them, it threatens to send them both running.

Sierra Kanoska fought hard for her position as wolf alpha of the Red Rock pack, and intruders in her territory receive the full brunt of what her claws, fangs and smarts can accomplish.

Word Count: 5007

What story I’m currently working on:

Slow and steady! I’ve been pushing forward with Hypnotizing Beat, but I also got sidetracked the past couple of days with edits, so that put heavy writing days on the backburner. However, I did hit my goal of 30k in Hypnotizing Beat. I will finish this book by the end of the year, I swears it. I’m hoping to at least hit 60k with this book in October, if not complete it. If I don’t complete it next month, then I’m going to be finishing it in November to kickstart NaNoWriMo.

What I’m editing/marketing:

So, the reason I slacked harder on writing Hypnotizing Beat was because I started burning through edits on Forged Contracts…to the point that I finished them last night and sent in the submission. Fingers crossed for some good news, guys! Now that I have that edit out of the way, I can focus most of my editing mojo on The Lies We Weave, which I’m determined to finish this year. I’m super excited for next week, since the pre-order for Forged Alliances goes live!!! I absolutely can’t wait to relaunch this series!

Teaser of the week:

Wistful notes spoke of loneliness, as solitary as the final birdsong of autumn or the trill of summer_s last cicada before the wintry freeze.

Line of the week:

Danica slipped beside him, craning forward to peer into the water. “So, what’s your guess, guitar boy? Think it’s in the middle of this muck? I’m happy to go splashing in the kiddie pool after the dive through Shark Central Station.”

Trevor lifted a brow. “I’ve been relegated to guitar boy now?” He couldn’t help the grin that rose to his lips. He’d love to chalk it up to her leannan sidhe charm, but he’d met plenty. Danica had an effortless ability to make him laugh, her brand of sharp wit and weird something he doubted he’d ever tire of.

“Yep,” she responded. “Better pull out the stops to wow me if you want a bump up on the nickname list.” Danica gripped the golden stones framing the pond as if she prepared to launch into the water.

Forged Alliances Excerpt

Tonight Sierra was spoiling for a fight.

She slammed into the Beaver Tavern’s door shoulder first, amber light spilling on her and the scent of tobacco threading through the air as she entered. Wooden planks creaked under her boots from her tread as she quick-stepped to the oaken bar on the opposite side. Three things lit her match without fail—abusive assholes, idiots who didn’t use their turn signals, and unannounced shifters moving in on her territory.

Inside, her beast snapped at its confines, begging her to shift, to take to the woods and keep running, never turning back. Except leaving wasn’t an option, not since she’d become alpha of the Red Rock pack years back. Sounds of the bar in full swing washed over her, from the shouts and laughs to the clunks of heavy pint glasses hitting the tables.

“Sierra, what’s up your ass?” Jeremiah called over from a table as a lazy smile reached his hazel eyes. Her Red Rock pack filled the whole bar, since humans kept their distance from predominantly shifter areas, and in this part of Pennsylvania few would come strolling in.

She flipped him the middle finger. “Shut it, Streaky,” she called back, garnering a couple of smirks and laughs from the pack. After Jer had gotten caught buck-ass naked, stumbling out of at least three different tents at the last Fourth of July party, the nickname had stuck. Sierra made a beeline to where Raven manned the taps, dispensing dew to this loud and crazy lot. Sierra’s body brimmed with unspent tension. Fight, fight, fight pounded through her, an untamable urge, and her wolf prowled inside her, restless. As alpha, her rank heightened her tether to the beast, already one step away from primal.
