End of Summer Thoughts…

Summer is finally starting to slow down. Even here in my hot desert home. It’s only 99F degrees today and that’s a relief from the scorching temps this summer. My son is already be in school and my daughter has next week off then she’s back to school as well. As some of you may appreciate this, getting work done in the summer is always a challenge. And kids, even in the fictional world, often prevent any ‘fun’ activities. lol

That said, we were able to just release the latest Luna Lodge #14: Lucan. I think everyone is going to be very happy with the direction things head in the lodge and with the hybrids. The next 5 in the series are going to be the final five in this series! DON’T PANIC! lol This isn’t the end for the hybrids. More a moving point for them and that means great things for our boys and their woman. Also, Hunters of Atlas will continue on. We have tons of things still to settle there. Also, when Luna Lodge ends, I will be starting up a new series called Luna Lodge: Alpha Squad. This will be a sort of continuation of the Luna series but in a whole new way. Keep your eyes pealed, I’ll be announcing things related to this over next year.

Hope everyone is liking the return of Kelly Clan and Allen Securities. I’ve got some great ideas with both series but they will be slow coming out. It’s just they way they fall with the line up. But we’ll at least be getting 2 of each series a year. πŸ™‚

Okay, finally Berserk. So you might have noticed I’ve delayed on this one. Mainly, I want to make sure this is exactly how I want it. I love all my series but this one is special to me. Mostly, I just need to make sure everyone loves it as much as I do. I’m hoping to have it ready by Sept. but we’ll see.

Final note, I just want to say thank you to everyone for being such great fans. I love that I’ve been able to connect with you all through my stories. I truly cherish all my readers. You are amazing women and I’m lucky to have this connection with each and every one of you. May we have many more years together and our hot alpha men. πŸ˜‰

Hello June!

What a busy month May has been! I went to RT where I got to meet lots of fans, which is always amazing, and hook up with some wonderful author friends. It’s always a great time for good ideas to strike and that’s exactly what happened this year. I’m still formulating a few things on this but expect to hear something about this new series in the fall. πŸ˜‰

Despite being gone a week, I was still able to get out two books this month. Zane from the Allen Series and Quintus from Hunters. Hope everyone has enjoyed them! It was fun going back and breathing some life back into the Allen series. This is something I hope to do more of this year. For all the suspense lines but I’ll talk more about that later.

Now we’ve covered May, I’m totally ready to move on to June. As some of you will remember, at the last RT I started to formulate a series. Just basic ideas that I have been obsessed with ever since. Two words. Shifter Vikings. πŸ˜€ See, tell me that doesn’t make you smile. This is going to be a little different. First, these books will be about double the size of a Luna or Hunters book. There is A LOT to cover in these books and to do that they just need to be longer. That said, they are also going to be priced at $3.99. I think it’s still a fair price for the length. Kay, another things that’s different is that there are 12 books in this series. If they go well I do have a branch off series planned but that’s won’t be until the final 12 are finished.

I am very excited about releasing this series. It’s going to be hot raw alphaness with the same awesome woman who can handle the heat.

Can you tell I like a strong female character? I actually just got an email today that really made my day. She talked about my female characters and how she loves that they have a backbone. Me too! I believe that a partnership means that both people need to have a voice. I think that’s what I’ve done and I’m so glad that I’m able to share that with so many amazing women.

Okay, back to the book. I expect to release around the third week of the month. Don’t hold me to it but that’s the plan. Also, because this is a new series, I’m totally going to beg you all to leave reviews. I sorta hate to do it because, bleh, it just makes me feel so dirty. But reviews do boost a book and I really want your feedback. I’m beyond excited about this series but it means nothing if you all aren’t feeling it.

Things have been really kicking along with the Kelly men. So much so that we’re going to see the introduction of a few new guys. I think you all will like the new direction. Eventually those dirty Russians will get what’s coming to them. Kelly Clan should come out the last week of the month. Again, don’t hold me to it.

So that’s about it. I’ll be leaving on vacation the last day of the month. I will have my computer with me and will likely be doing a little work but not much. Mainly because there are about a million people to see when I go home. lol Never a bad thing to be loved.

Hope you all have a great week!

Eagle Ridge was supposed to be a safe haven for the hybrids, but now it’s turning into a Glycon-infested hell.

The presence of the horrible mutants is bad enough, but then a human witnesses an attack. Now the hybrids are at risk of being exposed to the outside world and the ruthless Horatius Group.

Allison’s proud to be mayor of Eagle Ridge and takes her job seriously. She’s very concerned about protecting the citizens of her town, especially with all the violent attacks that have been occurring. Though she’s convinced a wild animal is involved, she also can’t deny having seen a strange monster.

Hybrid Quintus is still finding his place among the hybrids, but is comfortable serving as a spy. When he’s sent to find out how much Allison might have seen, he’s surprised to find that she may be his fated mate.

Despite the raging attraction between the two, the shocking truth behind why so many Glycons are in the area may cost them their lives before they can even worry about a future relationship.

Still waiting on iBooks but should be up in a day or two.

Love to see your great reviews! It just makes me so happy to know what parts you love the best. πŸ™‚

So what’s next? Well I had planned to put out an Allen Securities. I know I’ve mentioned it to a few of you. I’m sorry to say but I’ve had to push that one until next month. Since I’m going to be at the Romance Times Convention in Atlanta, there are a few things I need to get out before then. Up side, next book is going to be Luna Lodge #12: Kyros. I think many of you will be glad too see one out again so soon.

After that will be the new series I’ve been talking about for what seems like forever. Berserk. I’ve been holding on to this for some time and I can’t wait to see what you all think.

So that’s about it for now. Just continuing to work, work, work. πŸ™‚ As always, if you don’t hear from me, I’m likely writing.
Have a wonderful week!

Reading Order

Hello all! I’ve had several people ask about the best reading order for the books. As you all know, I love to intertwine the stories. It’s fun to think of them all living in the same town and working together on things. That just like a normal town, their lives might cross over from time to time. Plus, as I’m writing, great ideas of a branch off series will pop up. Instead of trying to force everything into the current series, I create a new one. I.e. I loved Finn’s character. He was just too delicious not to have his own story but it didn’t really work for the Allen Series so he got his own. I’m so glad you all seem to get this and have been so willing to come along for the ride. I absolutely love that my readers get this.

Allen/Kelly/Special Forces
Allen Securities: Reed #1
Allen Securities: Kace #2
Allen Securities: Liam #3
Kelly Clan: Finn #1
From here you can either finish off the Allen Series or finish off the Kelly Series. Or alternate between them. This is the point that there is a clear divide between the two and you won’t be spoiling anything by reading on. πŸ™‚ Personally, I’d read Allen and then Kelly.
After you’ve finished those two series, then I’d start Special Forces. Trent is related to some things that were talked about in Kace but you don’t need to have just read Kace to read it. Those elements are recapped in the story.

Luna Lodge/Hunters of Atlas
Luna Lodge: Sol #1
Luna Lodge: Titus #2
Luna Lodge: Lucius #3
Luna Lodge: Marius #4
Luna Lodge: Apollo #5
Luna Lodge: Remus #6
Luna Lodge: Apollo and Val #5.5
Hunters of Atlas: Magnus #1
Basically, don’t start Hunters of Atlas before Remus. There are some key things that happen in book 6 of the Luna Lodge that help create the Hunters of Atlas series. From this point you can decide what direction you want to go. You can finish off all the Luna Lodge and then move on to the Hunters of Atlas. Jump right into the Hunters and finish those off or alternate between them. It’s up to you. I think I’d finish Luna and then jump into the Hunters.
Also, I do have another series that will branch off of these. It’s called Alpha Squad. You might see some hints at it toward the end of Varius and the end of Servius. πŸ™‚ You’re going to love it!

I think that about covers it all. If I add any new series that might change all this, I’ll be sure to update. Any questions, feel free to ask. I’m always more than happy to answer questions if I can.

New Goals!

Hi everyone! As you might have seen, I missed some of my goals last month. There were a few family issues that popped up and I’ve been struggling with a bit of depression. It sucks to have gotten behind but I’m just glad to be feeling better and back on track.

So on to some happy news. Luna Lodge #11: Cyrus was released yesterday. There are new troubles at the Lodge and I’m afraid things aren’t going to get any easier for them anytime soon. Next book slatted for release is Luna Lodge Hunters of Atlas #6: Jace. Poor Jace took the brunt of anger from Marcus but he’s really a good guy.

That’s about all I have for now. Thanks to everyone for waiting so patiently. I’m feeling much better and just plan on moving forward with a new mindset. πŸ™‚

News and things!

What a week! Had a few things crop up, nothing major, but it’s required I be off the computer to deal with them.

Just thought I’d touch base and give an updated line up. Nearly finished with Luna Lodge #11. Should be out at the end of this week. I plan on rolling right into Hunters of Atlas #6 after. Normally I won’t be releasing these two series in the same month but I figured it’s my birthday in a week so why not! πŸ˜€ Berserk #1 also comes out this month and I really can’t wait! It’s really shaping up to be fantastic. I’m so excited to see what you all think.

Since February is a time for love, I’ve decided to do a special Valentine release for Allen Securities. Zane is a new guy we haven’t see but you all are going to love him. πŸ˜‰ I will also be putting out Buttoned Up #1, my first RomCom. It might seem corny to laugh at your own jokes but I think it’s too funny. Really hoping you all love it as much as I do!

That’s about it for now. Releases are getting to be really regular and I love seeing the reviews you all leave. They just make my day!

January:
Luna Lodge #11
Hunters of Atlas #6
Berserk Series #1

February:
Luna Lodge #12
Allen Securities #7
Buttoned Up #1

What’s new?

Well for me, I’ve been putting all that good data to use from the survey. Making plans for the new year and getting all my ducks in a row.

First things first, December is going to be a very busy month! I’m launching two new series as well as putting out a couple books in series already out. This is all going to be a blast but I will likely be scarce until after it’s all over. Nothing new to some of you but just wanted to let everyone know.

Sooooo, we’ve talked before about pre-orders and giving a heads up about releases. It’s something I’ve been tossing around for a bit now. I think this last week was a very good reason why it’s just not going to work in the near future. Illness is something I just have to deal with here and whenever I get behind, it puts my husband behind in editing. I’m not pulling the idea completely, just tabling it until I can get much further ahead. So for pre-orders, we might be looking at more July than January. Also, there are still some issues with pre-orders on Amazon. I’m hoping they continue to work out the kinks. However, I get that some of you might want to reread a series before a new book comes out (which I absolutely LOVE) and I want to make sure I’m giving you a heads up so you can do things the way you’d like. That said, I’m going to post up my lineup. There aren’t going to be any hard dates but the line-up will stay the same unless something crazy happens, which I’m sure you all will hear about. I thought it might help with any planning that needs to be done. πŸ™‚

So here’s a soft outline for the next couple months (nothing is certain here, just general plan as of right now):

Current:
Hunters of Atlas #5: Marcus

December 2016
Luna Lodge #11: Cyrus

January 2017
Hunters of Atlas #6
Buttoned Up #1
Berserk Series #1

February 2017
Luna Lodge #12
Allen Securities #7: Zane
Berserk Series #3

So there you have it. Plans are to have release day only on Friday during the week. Unfortunately, it’s hard for me to get it out at the same time everywhere. So once a book is up on Amazon, it should be out at the other places by the following Tuesday at the latest. Ideally, I’ll be able to get them at those places sooner and hope they load up quickly but the time frame it takes to publish a book is really out of my hands. :/ Frustrating.

I think that about covers things. Really looking forward to the upcoming year. Lots of great things in the works!
Thanks for being such great fans. I love being able to share my books with you. I really am blessed to have this job.

Lots of Updates!

Hello! I hope everyone had a great Halloween! My kids did a little run around the neighborhood and then came home to hand out candy to everyone. It was a very nice evening of candy and movies.

I’ve got a lot to run over this month so let me just sorta jump in. The next couple months are going to be super busy for a couple reasons. It’s the holidays and that always adds an additional element to it all. I’m trying to get out a ton of books because I have plans. Big plans (I’ll explains soon). As an added bit of fun, my thyroid has decided to join my adrenals in giving me a bit of trouble. This is a new thing for me so I’m trying to adjust as we get meds sorted. The up side? Although I was sick recently, it had been some time since I was sick and that’s good in my book. πŸ™‚

So moving on to the good stuff. If you haven’t done so, fill out this survey! I’ll explain my findings in another post when it’s over but for now, it’s important to helping me plan for next year. Also by filling it out you have a chance to win 1 of 4 $10 USD gift cards to Amazon.

Now on to the books. Who read Servius? Well if you haven’t you’re going to want to. It is the starting point for a BRAND NEW SERIES I will be releasing next year. I’ve always had plans for this and I’m loving the chance to make it happen. Unlike the Hunters of Atlas branch off, this series will interact at times with both the Luna hybrids and the Hunters hybrids. I don’t have any firm dates on this series yet but I’ll keep you all posted.

For the suspense lines. I had no idea how long it had been since I released a Kelly Clan book! I had a series of illnesses and that series just got pushed out somehow. Well I’m making sure that doesn’t have again. Last month Riley came out. This month I’m putting out Braden. I think it’s only fair that the series get back to back releases. Also, I’m going to put out an Allen Securities book after the new year. I put the series on the back burner to figure out what I was going to do and I’m so glad I did. Zane is going to knock your socks off! I’m so stinking excited about it but I’m still working on dates so I’ll keep you all posted.

I’ve mentioned about a million times now that I’ve got a new series in the works. The series is called Berserk and the first book is called Dog Fight. This is a shifter series and I’m just in love with the story. The roots of it are Viking in nature and the men are a bit more…aggressive. But in a good way. Of course I’ll still have sassy women taming these rough men and it will be hot as all get out because of it. These books are going to quite a bit longer than any of my other books and because of the time investment, they are going to be priced at $3.99 (they will be 2-3 times the size of a Luna book). I think that a dollar more for double, almost triple the length is more than worth it. The first in the series will be out at the end of next month.

Lastly, I know I’ve also mentioned a million times about the RomCom I’ve been working on. Well I’m also planning on releasing that next month. It’s in the flavor of Gilmore Girls but all set to my style and quirks. Oh and a whole lot of dirty! This is my just for fun. Something I’ve been toying with since last year and only now getting the chance to give it a go. The series is called Buttoned Up and the first book is Stiff Collar. This series won’t come out as often as some of the others but I think it’s going to go over really well. As I tell my husband at least a dozen times a day, I am a very funny person. πŸ˜€

Okay so after saying all that I think I should expand on a few items. As you can see I have a diverse writing profile. I think it’s what makes me fun. It keeps my writing fresh and it’s all what I love to both read and write. I won’t ever be the author that writes just one sub-genre. It’s just not me and I think we’re all benefited when I get to be myself. That said, I think that’s never really going to be much a problem for people getting the series they love. I put out a ton of books. Even when I’m super sick I still manage to get out a decent amount of books.
2013- 7 books
2014- 9 books
2015- 10 books
2016 (so far)- 9 books but if things go as planned it should be about 16 books
I just wanted to post this to keep in mind. That although I might have several series, there’s more than enough room for me to love them all. πŸ™‚ Every day I wake up thinking how lucky I am to be able to do exactly what I love and have other people love my work as well. I just can’t express how much I love my job. So if I ever drop out of communication, know that I’m hard at work trying to create books that you will love. You all are amazing.

And thank you to anyone that made it this far. lol

Some great news!

Hello! I hope you all have started your weekend off right, I know I certainly have. We’re releasing the 4th book in the Hunters of Atlas: Sergius. To celebrate I’m enjoying a little Sangria tonight. πŸ˜‰

So on top of another great release, I’ve got some good news. Well, good news mostly for me but don’t worry, you’ll benefit as well. Recently I was chatting with some authors and several mentioned using Dragon Naturally Speaking. Now I don’t mention it much but I’ve got some psoratic arthritis in my hands which can be really difficult to work around when you type all day. The benefit of this program is that all I have to do is speak and then edit.

Let me just say how amazing it has been. With it I have been able to get so much done! I’m just blown away.

So here’s the really awesome part. Because of this, I’m looking at doing pre-orders by the end of this year. I know how many have been waiting and hoping I’d go this direction. With Dragon, it really makes this a possibility.

For right now, I’m going to keep things as they are. I put out books and post them up. I need a little more time to get things organized to feel comfortable doing this. But don’t worry. As soon as I’m ready to start the pre-orders, you all will be the first to know. πŸ™‚

So on the book front I’m moving right along. Next in the series is Kelly Clan #4: Riley. After will be Luna Lodge #10: Servius. I will be putting out another Special Forces and then a Special Forces Christmas. Thought it might be fun to do a holiday book this year.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and please see about reviewing Sergius. I love to read your reviews!
