Quite unexpectedly I had a very exciting thing happen this week...I was scouted!! Dave Thomas, of DarkFuse came looking for me! FOR ME!!
This is one of those writerly bucklet list things. Scouted to write something special for a publisher. Well, it happened, Dave came looking and I was ready for it. He pitched an idea, write for his new series, Erotikos, specializing in erotic dark fiction, and of course I said yes!
I was so inspired that I wrote something up for him that day and within a couple of days I was officially a DarkFuse author!
This isn't my normal erotic stuff, it's grittier, darker, and much more disturbing. Dave has given me a green light to explore the deepest depths of my naughty imagination so be prepared for some squirm-inducing stories.
This is a new path for me, unexpected but very welcome. I can't wait to see what comes next.
I'll let you all know when the story goes live and keep ya posted on any other exciting things that may be coming.

I revealed my cover for Beast Rising in this month's newsletter but for those of you who haven't yet subscribed (why not?) I'm revealing it here too!
The Huntresses are stepping up their game. So are the forces arrayed against them…
Embracing the Huntresses could mean death to the wolves who love them.
The Order of the Wolf, Book 7
Mayhem is furious. While he and the boys have been rocking it out on stage at a series of concerts in Scotland, Darcy and Aubrey have been sneaking out for, as they so defiantly put it, "training."
Raven is cut to the bone when he discovers what Darcy's been doing behind his back. But simply forbidding the women from hunting isn't the answer. Though it makes him uneasy, he talks Mayhem into joining forces to train alongside their women.
Training is in full swing when they encounter a pair of ancient Huntresses battling each other with powers Darcy and the girls can only dream about. Taking sides turns out to be a mistake when Darcy and Raven are kidnapped, and an evil plan is put into play to use the girls' powers to unleash Lazarus, the king of the beasts.
The only way to defeat him is for the Order, Huntresses, and Wolves to put their mutual mistrust aside and unite. Or the world could be flooded with an unending river of feral beasts.
Warning: Contains sex in public places, a virtual reality threesome, and some red hot lovin'. Female warriors with an attitude who won't be shackled or coddled, and rock star werewolf mates who are hard pressed to keep up
Release day is January 17, 2017 (it's super weird to be typing 2017 by the way)

You ready for it?
Here it is...
I write romance. Okay, okay, you knew that. I write romance and in that romance are erotic scenes. Explicit, no closed doors erotic scenes.
So, given that, it's easy to assume that I write romance because I enjoy the relationship building, the sexual encounters, the hot and heavy, the deep and meaningful aspects that make romance romance. And I do.
But here's what you didn't know...when I was writing The Order of the Wolf series, it wasn't because I wanted to share stories about a guy and girl falling in love, doing it repeatedly and then living happily ever after.
Okay, it wasn't only because of that.
When I was writing The Order books it was because I wanted to bring to life these strong female warriors, the Huntresses, who were not only pivotal to the fight but, in the process of growing, would learn how valuable and powerful they were to all aspects of life, including their relationships.
I created these female warriors who are struggling to understand themselves and their powers. Who are learning about their roles and their places in a new world order. They aren't perfect and they make mistakes.
BUT they are the only ones who can vanquish the evil and truly save the day.
Their men, the Hunters or their wolves, play a valuable role too. It is in them that the Huntresses can find support, encouragement and partnership, and maybe that's something they're working on or trying to get right, but the essence of it is in every story that I've written in this series.
I am inspired by strong female characters. I love movies that showcase a kick ass female who can not only handle a weapon but can handle her individuality and strength, even if it takes time to get there.
The finale of The Order of the Wolf, Beast Rising, is set to release in January 2017 and in that book I hope to share with you a coming of age for the Huntresses. It is time for them to grasp what is theirs and rule the world that I've created for them.
So yeah, I write romances with love, arguments, hot, heavy, drooling, panty ripping make-ups but I also write about strong, kick ass women who not only have each other's backs but will save the day and the world whether you like it or not.
Thanks for being on this journey with me. I can't wait to share the finale with you.

I'm super happy to announce that Beast Rising, Book 7 of The Order of the Wolf has a tentative release planned for early 2017!!!
At this point I don't have all the details to share but once things start coming through, blurb, cover, etc, I'll be sure to update you.
Beast Rising is technically considered the finale of the series and will tie up all the threads from relationships to battles. It includes an ensemble cast of characters from many of the other books and is told from the POV of the wolves and their mates.
I wrote this book last summer and wasn't sure what was going to happen with it but it's on track for release with edits starting soon! And a big bonus is that I get to work with my editor Holly Atkinson who has had an editing hand in helping me shape all of the books to date. Her insight has been invaluable to me and I'm thrilled to be working with her again.
This series has taken me on a great writing journey and I'm both happy and sad to see it come to an end, but all things must...at least for now.
I have some other things in the works...possibly a new venture soon to come that may involve a new pen name ;-) but I can't say more than that now.
Back to the editing cave for me! Catch ya later!
