It’s a new year and I have a lot going on this year book- and author-wise and thought I’d share it here. On the static front page you can see a banner listing of where I’ll be this year as far as signing events. I’m extremely excited about all of these! I love meeting new people and can’t wait to give hugs to ones I haven’t seen in a while! Here’s the banner again:
I’m on the wait list for one in July in S.F., but not holding my breath for it! If any of these do change, I will definitely update it here and on my Facebook page!
As far as book releases, I am always hesitant to put out a release schedule because my writing is so sporadic. Sometimes I can write a book in a month (like my newest book, Antihero), sometimes it takes me a year (like Soul Rebel). Publishing a book is a lot more than writing the book too. It has be tweaked, edited, proofread, and given to beta readers for feedback. There’s a cover that has to be chosen and designed (almost as hard as writing the book!), and of course it has to be formatted into ebook and hard copy, too. So here’s a list of what I would like to get out this year, but there are no guarantees. This is quite a load for me, I usually do 3-4 books a year.
★ Antihero (An Imperfect Heroes Novella) – This is part of the Sexy Bastards Anthology, which is on sale for .99 cents during the preorder period, and releases February 8. This is a limited release anthology, which will only be sold until mid-April. After that, I will release Antihero by itself for .99, so you can choose to wait or read it in the anthology. I suggest you get the anthology, as you’ll get about 10 other bad boy stories by other awesome authors, too! You can read the synopsis and see the cover on my Upcoming Works page .
☆ Above Protection (Imperfect Heroes, Book 1) – I’m so excited for this series. This one comes out April 4 and can be preordered here. You can read the synopsis and see the cover on the Amazon page of the preorder link.
★ Soul Seeker (Kovah’s Story) (Rebel Riders Novella) – I keep getting emails about this book. Kovah from the Rebel Riders series is getting his own book! This will detail his backstory and how he moves forward with the woman he’s met in book 3 of the series. The cover is not done but I will definitely be showing it off here and on my Facebook page because I already bought the photo for it (had to give up a few of my daily coffees to pay for it!) but it’s gonna be smokin’ 🙂 I hope for an early summer release for this one.
☆Guardian (Lotus’s Journey, Part III) (Daughters of Darkness Series) – So I can’t give a date at all for this one. I have to have a pow-wow with W.J. May, Chrissy Peebles, and Kristen Middleton to make sure we end this series in with a bang. “Guardian” will show how Lotus confronts her father, Vlad Montour, along with her sisters… and as a special treat, I will be telling Jezebel’s story in this book with Kristen Middleton’s blessing, as she’s also slammed for 2016. Stay tuned for that release! You can see the cover on the Daughters of Darkness page.
★ Beyond Brave (Imperfect Heroes, Book 2) – No release date for this one either, but it’s already about 1/3 done. I actually started this book about a year ago and put it aside to work on other projects. This one will detail the relationship between a Tampa P.D. detective who’s an Army vet, and a broken woman he meets on a case. There will be a 3rd book in this series too, which is untitled and I have no release date for it, but the story is already firmly in place for that one, too. Watch here or the FB page!
That’s it for now. I have two standalone romance books and a paranormal series I want to start eventually, too, but those will have to wait til 2017 unless I somehow can get rid of all my mom, wife, and fulltime employee responsibilities and just write. Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to happen though 😉
Hope 2016 is good to you!
