What story I’m currently working on:

Dipping my little toe back into getting words on paper. I hit 7k with Tempting Ballad, and I’m going to keep working on that right now. It’s going to take me a little bit to find my groove with the book, especially because Discord’s Desire requires figuring out the fae politicking end of things etc etc, but Renn’s voice comes across really strong, and I feel confident that this will be a super fun book.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Now I’ve got two projects out on submission, so it’s all sorts of the waiting game right now. In the interim, I’m trucking through the edits for Pomegranate’s Kiss, which I’m hoping to finish before the end of the month! And I’m currently working on the content for the class too, so there’s that. I also have a necessary round of edits on Scrying for Summer, which comes out in November, but the next release on the horizon is in October…Forged Redemption.

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.”(1)

Line of the week:

“Come on, Conspiracy Kid, don’t you have anything to say?” Clyde continued. “Any new theories to share?”

Oh hell no.

Conspiracy Kid was the nickname that haunted him after Belle disappeared, because he was the only person in the family who seemed to give a fuck. Mom and Dad told him to keep quiet, and his cousins? Well, they were merciless.

“Didn’t take you for a masochist,” Renn said, his fingers tapping on the tabletop. “That’s more my thing. Yet here you are begging for a beating.”

The irritation had been simmering through his veins from the moment they hit the East Coast until it reached a slow, undulating boil. This place and that ugly mug brought those memories rushing to the fore.

Renn stood from his seat. When he turned to face Clyde, he led with his knuckles first.

What story I’m currently working on:

So, I was going to dive back into Tempting Ballad, I swear. Those teeny tiny hundred words were for that book. However, I got in a revise and resubmit for an old manuscript, and so I was busy in deep editing and rewriting mode, which takes a LOT. Chances are, it’s probably going to consume most of my time for the next few weeks, and I’m 100% okay with that. I loved this story to pieces, and it’s worth the effort.

What I’m editing/marketing:

With Thief’s Crusade out on submission, I can place my full attention on A Card of Shadows, which I wrote last year and am now rewriting like crazy. I loved that manuscript with a ferocious passion, the world, the characters, everything. I still have a class to continue writing, so I’m going to need to divert work into that, and I started doing some casual edits on Pomegranate’s Kiss when I couldn’t focus. Mid-July saw the release of both 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! Next on the horizon is in October…Forged Redemption.

“Raven moaned at the sensations ripping through her, like the first splash of color on a monochrome canvas.”(2)

Line of the week:

“Not coincidence,” was all Maeve said, which didn’t help in the slightest. What made things worse is that Bree agreed, and Bree made a point to disagree with her sister any chance she got. But the truth was as brazen as this autumn air. Mom hadn’t come home, and a wraith prowled through their neighborhood. Growing up among the Wanderers taught you early on that everything was connected, from stubbing your toe on the kitchen table to finding out a rash of murders spread across Philly in the same morning. Bree was a firm believer, and right now, the belief settled in her gut like the fight she’d had with Mom.

The sparks of Ally and Drew’s old relationship ignite, but their broken pasts and a final fight against Mackey Kendricks threaten any hope of a future.

After Drew fell in with the Landsliders and destroyed his former pack, forgiveness isn’t something he deserves. However, no matter how hard the Tribe has tried, Mackey Kendricks can’t be stopped. So when they narrow down the vicinity of the monster’s hidden lair, the Tribe calls upon him again, this time for one of the most dangerous hunts—a recon mission to find the exact location.

However, when his former flame Ally signs on as the other member of the team, their attempts at avoiding each other crumble to the ground. No matter how hard they both try and no matter how many times they’ve walked away, the flame has never extinguished between them. This time, Drew’s fought for his redemption, changed for the better, and the relationship that blooms between them, for once, might stand a chance.

All they have to do is survive the fight against the biggest, baddest shifter on the East Coast.

What story I’m currently working on:

Well, my pace ground to a halt this week! I had a three day convention to vend at, and then when I returned on Monday, I was in full edits mode, which left zero time for working on the new story. On top of all of that, I had a release both Friday and Tuesday, so any hope of getting new wordage out was flushed down the toilet. However, hopefully by Monday at the latest, I’ll be back into the swing of things and pounding out the words. I’m in the last sector of this book.

What I’m editing/marketing:

So, I’m fully committed to getting Forged Redemption done. I make the vow now that by next week’s check-in, I’ll have the book finished and turned in to my editor. (That’s how freaking close I am) It’s what I’m working on all day today. On top of that, Forged Contracts is still on sale for 99 cents, and Forged Futures is now live! If you haven’t nabbed Tales from the Skies yet, it’s available for only 99 cents! More news on the agenda includes Hypnotizing Beat, book 2 in my Discord’s Desire series is going to be coming out before the end of the month, potentially May 29th! And if you haven’t nabbed Color of a Soul yet, it comes out June 3rd, and Hunting for Spring and Taking Root will be coming out the following month in July!

Line of the week:

“Wait,” Grif said, clapping a hand on his shoulder. Dan stilled, soaking in the heat from his palm.

“Tuesday is the day I lost them. Ever since then, I’ve never done a job on that day.”

Well, shit. Dan didn’t need to ask who ‘they’ were. He’d seen the shattered glass pain in Grif’s eyes at the mention of his murdered parents. He’d heard the acid edge to his tone when he talked about what had happened to them. Dan reached up to rest his hand over Grif’s, and he squeezed tight. Those words, faint, exposed, and wholly real, gave his heart a violent tug. If he wasn’t careful, he might tumble headfirst for this man.

What story I’m currently working on:

Post vacation some life things cropped up, making my normal writing schedule an impossibility, so I settled for at least getting some done yesterday. I managed to get to 48k in A Thief’s Crusade, and I’m still hoping I’ll be able to work my way back up into finishing this book before the end of the month. If not though, I’d be perfectly happy to finish it in June.

What I’m editing/marketing:

I’m pushing hard on Forged Redemption. Priority-wise, it’s feeling more important to get this turned in before the end of the month than getting the other book written, especially with Forged Futures coming out on May 21st. The edits are going pretty smoothly so far, and it’s been easy to integrate the necessary changes I needed to make. If you haven’t gotten to catch up on Tribal Spirits yet, don’t forget to nab Forged Contracts while it’s only 99 cents! Forged Futures is up for pre-order too, and I can’t wait to see what people think of that book. On May 17th, Tales from the Skies comes out, and Color of a Soul comes out June 3rd, while Hunting for Spring just went up for pre-order, which will be coming out July 17th!

“Bed. Now,” Grif commanded, grabbing Dan’s wrist and dragging him forward.

“Anyone ever tell you that you’re bossy?” Dan murmured, his eyes flashing with mischief. The wry grin on his lips was one that Grif wanted to capture with his mouth.

“I’ll spank your ass for that one,” Grif muttered, closing the distance to the balcony door in a couple quick strides.

“Promises, promises,” Dan responded. His tongue traced his lips in a slow, sensual way that made Grif want to just slam him against a wall and take him here.
