Crazy days of summer…

Things have been moving at a whirlwind pace lately.   “Breaking Point”, book two in my series, released almost two weeks prior to its original schedule, so that threw me off a bit.   I had already started writing book three to stay ahead of myself, but things have been backing up and I’m not as far along as I’d like, though there is no rush currently since it’s not due to come out til Spring of 2017.

On top of that, I’m going to be writing a novella for one of Desiree Holt’s Kindle Worlds, “Omega Men”.  Very similar storyline as my current series, though it’s contemporary and its erotica to a point, so I’ll have to get that out by summer 2017.

AND…  I’m collaborating on a contemporary romance novel with friend and author, Casey Hagen.  We’ve been writing this book since last fall and it’s going to be great.  Our voices really meld well and I’m enjoying the process.

Now, to top it all off with a big, fat, red cherry, book one and two of my Alpha Core series just got picked up for audio production!  You heard me right, Alpha Core Trilogy is coming to audiobooks my little techy monsters!  I am really excited about this new endeavor.  I love my narrators and I’m still a bit weirded out about being able to hear my book read back to me.  Kind of surreal.

So yeah, I’ve been very busy.  The relentless heatwave on the east coast isn’t helping any.  I feel like a hermit holed up in my bedroom, huddled next to the AC with my laptop and huge glass of iced tea.  But rest assured, I’m still here and I’m busily getting out new stuff for all of you to read and enjoy!

Stay cool and enjoy the rest of your summer, because Fall is fast approaching!

But I don’t want to say goodbye…

I started writing the third, and final, book in my series a month or so before the last one was released.  Among my writer friends, I know I’m in mixed company in that.  Some of them like to take a break between books, gear up, clear their minds before they dive in again.  But the others, like me, can’t.  I don’t know, for me it’s twofold.  Firstly, I don’t want to lose momentum.  Normally when I write, the last month or so is full of cramming and trying to hit deadlines, so there’s this prolific thrill in the air.  Even though it’s rife with stress and anxiety, it keeps me on edge enough that I can get things done.  Like a fire lit under my ass, which I usually need toward the end.  Secondly, my characters are my family. Think about it.  I’ve been spending every waking moment with them, watching them, nurturing them, observing them.  And you come to love them.  Even the evil ones.

cryAs I started the third chapter of book three this morning, it dawned on me that after this, they’ll be gone and I didn’t like that feeling.  They have so much to say, so much to do and one last book feels stunted to me.  So I’m considering doing something unique.  This is a trilogy, for sure, but what if I wrote a series within a series?  Have a trilogy of trilogies?  How cool would that be?  The second “set” would be about the same team but perhaps center on other characters.  Or perhaps a completely different plot.  I’m undecided as of yet.  I just think doing it feels right and when the muse whispers in my ear, who am I to naysay?

So, book three will be released in all it’s final glory hopefully late winter, early spring.  But after that?  Time will tell.  Keep checking back and if you have any questions or comments, feel free to drop me a line and I’ll be happy to chat with you!
