Weekly Word Count: 1/8/20

Word Count: 5493

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:

Um. I went a little overboard the past week. The pace on Tempting Ballad slowed to only 6k, but that doesn’t even matter because Pomegranate Kiss blew up. I hit 21k in that book, which is crazy because I literally started it a week and a half ago. However, Lex and Cam won’t shut up, and their story is really interesting. There are certain times when writing is just *easy* and when you catch hold of that precious flow, you need to ride it out.

What I’m editing/marketing:

I slowed down on the Outlier Heir edit because I needed to make space for some other things, including beginning to dive into small, line edits on A Thief’s Crusade. Even though I’m still waiting on beta reader feedback, I couldn’t help but at least start to clean the prose up. If you’re looking for new books on the horizon, in July I’ve got two releases on the docket. The first one is the re-release of the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles with book one, Hunting for Spring, and I’m even more excited for the launch of the brand new Eros Tales series, starting with Taking Root!

Teaser of the week:

“She was no better than the shells by her feet, tumbling this way and that at the beck and call of the waves.”

Line of the week:

Lex returned to Cam’s mouth, drawing out the kiss until she pulled back. The sky was dark and the moon had peeked out to cast silver hues across the tombstones. They’d kissed right through the sunset. Cam’s chest heaved with the desire that charged the air between them, but as she had from the beginning, she let Lex take the reins.

“Looks like I was able to make you a spooky bitch, after all,” Lex cracked, her eyes gleaming with amusement. The joke shattered the tension between them, and Cam flicked her in the arm.

“You’re ridiculous. Come on, let’s see the rest of this cemetery of yours,” Cam said, snapping her bra back on and running her fingers through her hair to comb it back. She took the footsteps forward, and Lex followed, trailing behind a couple of places.

This was one of the few, lonely places where she could admit the truth, where her self-delusions crumbled like the tombstones surrounding her. No matter how much she tried to convince herself the opposite, she was falling for Cam.

Forged Contracts Available for Pre-Order!


Nab your copy here!

When Jer kisses his best friend Raven, the feelings they’ve been avoiding surface—including secrets from the past that might destroy them both.

Jeremiah Taylor’s responsibilities as the new pack beta are crushing him, especially with the unpredictable mood shifts since his shaman-supplied bipolar meds ran out. It’s the combination for doing something stupid, like kissing the one woman he’s never let himself pursue—his best friend Raven Takahashi.

When Finn left the Red Rock pack, Raven’s on and off again fling took her safety net with him—the one barrier keeping her from the raw and real way she feels around Jer. The moment the Pandora’s box opens after they kiss, she can no longer deny the sparks between them or hide from the demons of her past.

And when one of those demons shows up in Beaver Tavern representing an anti-shifter group to take over their land, Raven’s secrets threaten to get dragged into the light, which could cost her everything—her friends, her pack, and her home. However, if she and Jer don’t thwart the anti-shifter group’s takeover attempts, the entire Red Rock pack might find themselves banished from their own land.

Joe Ganzorig, Mackey Kendricks’ right hand shaman, has appeared in Ricketts Glen again, and Lucas Diaz is on the job. Except this time, the Landsliders are targeting the recently widowed Lana Bennett. Turns out her husband’s murder hadn’t been accidental—he was involved in the Landsliders and stole an anti-shifter bomb from the big boss himself. The Landsliders want it back, and they won’t stop their attacks until their device is delivered.

Lucas volunteers to keep her safe while they search for the device, needing to protect this wry, stunning woman who’s still standing even after everything she’s weathered. Despite the distance they each try to keep, both Lucas and Lana can’t deny the scorching attraction between them. However, with the constant reminders of Lana’s husband and the Landsliders increasing their threats by the day, these newfound feelings could expire before they ignite. And if the Landsliders find the device before them, none of the shifters will stand a chance at survival.

Pre-order the second book in the Tribal Spirits series today, Forged Decisions!

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.
