I’ve been away for a bit and I know a lot of you readers are getting antsy for my next books. Believe me, I am too. Unfortunately, as I’ve documented on this blog, this past year has not been easy for me. I’ve had a bad case of writer’s block that I just can’t seem to shake. Through it all, I’ve been writing everyday, although not as much as I need to. Spitfire Suckerpunch has been as much of a bear to deal with as its predecessor. It’s taking a long time to finish and it’s also my longest book to date. Every time I think I’m close to finishing, another plot issue pops up.
But the good news is that I will finish this book. That is my current mantra. It WILL get done and I WILL move on to the next.
I currently have about four other books that are in various stages of completion as well. After Spitfire is done, I will move on to those. I am definitely planning to make the second half of my writing year better than my first. So without further ado, here is my tentative new release schedule:
Late August: Spitfire Suckerpunch
Late September: Dark Erotica release
October: Parts 2 and 3 of A Devil Named Dixon.
November: Part 4 of A Devil Named Dixon
December: Kiss of Life
Thanks to all of YOU for your patience. I promise I’m thinking of you guys every time I sit down to write 🙂
Stone Cold Knockout is now up on B&N for Nook here.
Stone Cold Knockout is Live! Woot!!
Here’s the blurb:
She needs him. He wants her. Together they heat up the ring…
When Gennifer Rodriguez meets Mikhail, a recent transplant to New York City, at Big Jimmy’s House of Pain, sparks immediately fly. When he bests her in the ring, he tells her exactly what he wants from her. Gennifer agrees, on one condition–that he train her for an upcoming competition.
But when Gennifer’s match takes a violent turn, Mikhail reveals his own dark side. The stone cold Russian is out for blood…but at what cost?
Contains a sexy Russian Alpha, a Dominicana who can hold her own, and a hard-won, Elvis-approved HEA.
So I’ve been on Twitter since Kiss of Ice first came out, but I just got my act together and got a Facebook page. Check it out here. It’s very bare-bones right now, but I promise I’ll update it regularly. Feel free to ‘Like’ at your leisure 🙂 I’d appreciate it!
I’ve been working really hard on Kiss of Fire, the second book in the St. James Family Series. Happy-go-lucky Toni and O’Donovan, her ornery fireman, are fully fleshed out and their story is (for the most part) set in stone. It’s getting there. I have every intention of having it out around the end of March, early April. I’m super excited for you guys to read it! It’s a different character dynamic than Annata and Christophe, and I’m enjoying writing Toni, who’s so spunky and positive. Well, until she gets her heart broken… but I won’t give away too much 🙂
Anyway…. here’s the thing. I keep getting distracted. First, a dystopian idea, of all things, popped into my head during the holidays, so I jotted down some character notes and wrote a few pages that were forcing their way out.
Next, a story that I planned as a bonus novella for the St. James Series (featuring a character that was going to be introduced in Kiss of Life) pushed its way to the forefront. I’ve decided to make a real go of this story, which features a rock star and his lady love, and try and have it out for Valentine’s Day.
I have about two weeks to get this story out, so I’m going to push myself really hard to get it done. I guess I shouldn’t complain about having my creativity runneth over, but I’m going to focus on Kiss of Fire after V-Day. Definitely. It’s coming!
Kiss of Ice is now available for Kobo users here.
I’m pretty excited to get Kiss of Ice out to new readers!
In other news, I’ve been hard at work on the follow-up Kiss of Fire. I’m hoping to have it available by the end of March, so fingers crossed. I’m also hoping to have a new novella out for Valentine’s Day, but we’ll see 🙂
