What’s Up? This!

Here’s What’s Up

Surrender to Ruin is still out for its final final final editorial read. The anthology How to Find a Duke in Ten Days is officially on sale. Readers are really responding to the stories. Mine is The Viscount’s First Kiss. If you haven’t picked up your copy, you should! Click here for my website buy links page.

Other News

I have a reversion for Not Wicked Enough. As soon as I have the reversion letter, my version of the book will be on sale world wide. Until the reversion, Berkley Books had North American rights.

What’s Next

I have several projects in the pipeline, but after a lot of thought I have reordered them. As some of you may know, Hachette Books still has the rights to the first two books in my My Immortals series. They have, to date, stood fast on refusing to revert because of outstanding sublicenses that do not expire until 2021. This severely hampers my ability to properly market the series, and that matters, a lot, to my bottom line. It’s hard to get traction with new readers when I don’t control two of the books, both of which are either no longer in print or very hard to find in print.

Therefore, I have decided to write two “replacement” books that will provide a new series lead-in to books 3-7. They are tentatively titled My Infernal Lover and Blow Back. Once both are done, I’ll have a way to effectively market the series and, hopefully, bring new readers into the series.

That does mean I am pushing back starting the new “Dark Elf” series, which is disappointing, though I am continuing to draft out my vision for for this series. My historical Not Proper Enough will likely revert sometime in the next year. Book 3 in the series remains on my project list.

Writing Progress and News

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

I’ve been making good progress on My Immortals Book 7. It’s coming together well, which is good news. I’ve told my cover artist to consider My Demon Warlord the final title so there you go. I should have a final cover soon.

Shortly though, I’ll be writing a novella for the anthology Dancing in the Duke’s Arms. I’m hoping to have My Demon Warlord to some trusted readers while I’m doing that.

I’ve changed my mind about the project after that. I was going to start on the Dark Elf series but I have decided I should write Sinclair Sisters Series Book 3, THEN start the new series.

Here’s a picture of some of the tulips coming up in the garden. It looks a little better close up but hey! Spring is coming!

Pink tulips one with the sun on some dew. It's an okay picutre. The pink is pretty.

November! Update.

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

OK, so I am failing miserably at NaNoWriMo again. I’m busy pulling together an excuse. I’ll let you know when I have one. Feel free to provide an excuse in the comments.

I have finished turning Dead Drop into a novel. I’ve given it Book 6 in the My Immortals book order, by the way. It’s 42,000+ words and will be on sale December 17, 2014. Pre-order links are going live now. Also, it seems I have not yet shown you guys the cover. Here it is!

The print version is ready to go. I’ll just need to pull the on-sale trigger. Here’s the pre-orders I have so far:

Just a reminder that I set up a newsletter-subscriber only section of my website. I’m currently serializing Dead Drop there. We’re up to chapter 8!

My last newsletter included everything you need to know to login to the subscriber only section. If you believe you’re a subscriber and didn’t get the email, then check your spam. I know Yahoo mail and Gmail both do a good job of reducing spam and “Promotion” but that also means that my newsletter is likely getting caught up in that. You may need to check those folders and whitelist me. If you don’t have the information, email me and I’ll get you the details.

I will be on vacation beginning Wednesday. ::me dancing:: Thursday I leave for New York and my first RWA Board Meeting. I’ll have all the following week off and hope to make major progress on My Immortals Book 7, which is Kynan’s and Maddy’s book.

Cover Reveal!

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

With apologies to everyone at FB who I realize will now see this THREE times because I am so hopeless at facebook…

Here’s the new cover for My Dangerous Pleasure, Book 4 of the My Immortals series. Rights have been reverted and now there is one more book in the series I can release world wide. The print version is in progress and will probably be on sale in a week or so. I anticipate some issues with getting the traditionally published files taken down. I’ve already started that process with preemptive requests for take downs and sending along my reversion.

I can’t tell you how happy I am to be able to release this book everywhere. Despite the fact that my publisher bought World Rights, none of the digital books were released outside Canada and the U.S., and even the paper copies were scarce, I understand.

Here’s the new cover copy:

Paisley Nichols is drawn into a dark world of demons, witches, and mages after a magical attack leaves her near death. The man who’s been stalking her is a mage with a tenuous hold on sanity. Iskander, her smoking hot landlord, is the demon who saved her life. As she copes with her new abilities and the threat she represents to magic-using humans, she can’t help but see Iskander with new eyes. He’s sexy, uninhibited, and sinfully handsome, but there’s also an undeniable emotional connection between them. First he’s in her arms, then her bed, and, before long, her heart.

Keep the human woman alive. Those are Iskander’s orders after the attack on his tenant leaves her with abilities that can save his kind from unimaginable suffering. When it comes to human women, Paisley is his physical ideal, and he’s all about finding out how far she’d like to go, no strings attached and all boundaries ignored. Except she’s everything he’s ever wanted in a partner, in bed and out. Now he has two jobs: keep her alive and convince her she’s the only woman for him.

My Dangerous Pleasure is Book 4 in the My Immortals Series, set in a world where demons are real and the people who use magic to protect innocent humans aren’t always in the right.

And here is the cover:

I’ve sent the MS off to my editor. There’s still revisions, copyediting, and proofreading, but I expect to have the book on sale late this month.

My Darkest Passion is book 5 of the My Immortals series. I guess I also need to start working on the back blurb, too…

Gasp! A Title for My Immortals Book 5? A Poll

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Last night, I think I finally hit on a possible title for Harsh Marit’s story (My Immortals Series, Book 5). I keep mulling over a few things, like, should I keep the “My [Something] [Something]” pattern of the first 4 books?

Here are those titles, by the way:

1. My Wicked Enemy
2. My Forbidden Desire
3. My Immortal Assassin
4. My Dangerous Pleasure
4.5 Free Fall
5. ????????

Should I go completely different with the titles?

Anyway, here is a poll with two variations of my proposed title. Vote for your favorite or, in the comments, suggest, comment, criticize, improve, or just tell a really good joke.

Happy Turkey Day!

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

I was going to post a picture of the turkey we used to have, but I organized all my pictures and now I can’t find anything. Instead, I will wish everyone celebrating Thanksgiving a very happy day and show you this picture:

One of these days I will save up enough money for a telephoto lens and/or a more general purpose lens than my macro lens.

I am making slow but steady progress with My Immortals 5 (Harsh’s story). I’m at the point now where it just seems like I’m working through mess after mess, but I can see where the story is very much coming together.
