What story I’m currently working on:

I hit 2k on Forged Redemption, which is picking up speed for me! I’m hoping by next week I’m edging a little closer to my normal stomping pace. I just started Drew’s POV, and it’s going to be as raw and rough as I expected. I’m thrilled to have him as my final hero and Ally as my final leading lady for this series.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Damn, so I knocked out Forged Futures, and will probably have some neeeeews about it soon! What this also means is that the brunt of edits-palooza is over and I get to start writing again! However, there are still some edits on the horizon, as I’m doing some overview edits on Scrying for Summer, Rising for Autumn, and Waking for Winter to turn in to my editor at Soul Mate Publishing. Next on the horizon is Of Tinkers and Technomancers, which goes up for pre-order next week! Oh, also, stay tuned, because The Airship Also Rises will be out in audio book any day now!

Line of the week:

For Drew, devastation had become a familiar sight.

During his time in the Landsliders, he’d seen bombs lit, fields razed, and packs ruined. He’d participated in all of it, even as the bile rose in his throat, even as his mind screamed. His hands were stained in so much blood that he could do good works the rest of his life and never scour all of the taint away.

Of Tinkers and Technomancers Cover Reveal!

978-1-78686-284-6_oftinkersandtechnomancers_1500x2400

This book is available for pre-order on January 29th, and releases March 5th! For those waiting for my next jaunt into steampunk, here it is!

When technomancer Theo Whitfield joins forces with the insufferable, gorgeous Silas Kylock to find her missing sister, their heated exchanges turn from irritation to desire…

When technomancer Theo Whitfield’s sister goes missing, she’s forced to work alongside an arrogant prat she’s long despised, the tinker Silas Kylock. Her sister Ellie nicked his clockwork doll, and Theo needs his help to track the stolen merchandise and, by proxy, Ellie. However, the more time they spend together, the more she sees Silas as the man she’d run through the streets of Islington with and not the insufferable gentleman he’s become.

Theo’s not the only one afflicted. Silas never forgot the loyal, stubborn woman whose temper he can’t help but spark, and as their search grows more dire, her dedication to her family inspires him to make sacrifices of his own. So, when the hunt erupts into a deadly confrontation with the gangs of Islington, Theo and Silas aren’t just risking their hearts—their lives are on the line.

Happy New Year!

Image result for happy new year

Let’s bid 2018 goodbye and set forth into the new year! And I’m planning on kicking some ass in 2019…

Starting with a brand new release, TODAY. Forged Decisions, book two in my Tribal Spirits series comes out today! And if you haven’t checked out the Tribal Spirits series yet, Forged Alliances is on sale for only 99 cents to celebrate!

ForgedDecisions

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.

And that’s just the beginning! We’ve got a whole line-up for 2019 already, and that’s not even including books out on submission or in the pipeline. Hope you’re ready to read!

What story I’m currently working on:

After an insane writing binge all year long, I’ve got some editing catch up to do. I finished Forged Futures last week and I’ve been starting to catch up on things around the house that I neglected and the manuscripts waiting to be worked on. I’ll be diving into Forged Redemption soon though. Working on it a little bit at a time until January hits and I launch full force into it.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Hypnotizing Beat is top priority on the editing front, and Forged Futures is out with beta readers. So, I’m hammering away at that, trying to get this work done. I’m preparing for a really intense beginning of the year release-wise. After all, I’ve got Tribal Spirits #2 in January, Of Tinkers and Technomancers in March, Tribal Spirits #2 in April, and potentially Tribal Spirits #4 in May….Intense, right? On the news front, A Reflection of Ice is now available in audio book! On top of that, Forged Alliances came out in November and Forged Decisions is available for pre-order and will release January 1st! I also gotta put a plug in for Bustles and Bells since it’s only available for the holidays!

Her current look was ‘spat out by a hurricane’ and she hated how her inside turmoil reflected out.

What story I’m currently working on:

Like I projected, Forged Futures is finished! And it already has an anticipated release date once it’s contracted too. (I’m supposed to turn it in by February) So, since I did all of the writing through November, December is gonna be a heavy editing month. I’ll probably start Forged Redemption in a week or so, but it’s going to be a slow beginning. Aka, you’ll see some pretty low word counts, because I’ve got too many projects to edit.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Well now, both the edits and line edits are done and turned in for Forged Contracts, so that’s something. I’m continuing to plug away at the Hypnotizing Beat edits, and I’m going to probably work on the content edits stuff next week just to knock it out. In November, Forged Alliances came out, and now already, Forged Decisions is available for pre-order! I’d also be remiss to not mention Bustles and Bells since it’s only available for the holidays!

Line of the week:

Lucas’s smile lit his whole face, those white teeth gleaming and his scars crinkling with the movement. His brown eyes gleamed like she was the first breath of warmth after an eternal winter. Lana swallowed, but pushed up on the couch to press her lips to his. The kiss was as ethereal as a sunbeam, the heat soaking through her like a sip of coffee, and for the first time in far too long, she tasted hope.

What story I’m currently working on:

Hit 25k with Hypnotizing Beat, so by next week I’ll be at 30k and right on track! It’s still a slower pace than the Tribal Spirits books which seem to just fly out of me, but I’m having a lot of fun playing in this sandbox again. Plus, SHARKS. (You’ll know when you read it!) I’m going to either try to power out Hypnotizing Beat in October, or finish it in the beginning of November and then squeeze a novella out. Or write the next book in the Tribal Spirits series, Forged Futures. It’s a dice roll at this point.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Well, I got all of my beta reader feedback in on Forged Contracts, and it’s not nearly the endeavor I thought it was going to be, so I’m plowing through content edits and line edits. My hope is to have it turned into my publisher by the end of September or early October! And I’ve gotten some solid feedback from one of my beta readers for The Lies We Weave, so I’m going to be diving into more content edits. Thankfully no more full-blown rewrites though. Of Tinkers and Technomancers also recently got signed with Totally Bound Publishing, so I’m thrilled to dive into that new series as well.

However, she wasn’t afraid.

Danger didn’t terrify her, not like confinement.

Danica would fight her way through a shark tank, bloody her hands in any manner to keep from getting locked away, whether it was a figurative chain or a real one. Trevor’s hand settled on her shoulder again. She glanced back to him at last. She’d expected nerves from the man, but all she found was a steady gaze back.

Trevor arched a brow and glanced to her heels. “I’m pretty sure the sharks are going to eat you first if you’re swimming with those on.”

Danica snorted. “Nice try, he-who-wears-stompers. I’ll sprinkle shark bait on you and kick you in first. Give myself a swimming head start.”
