Summer Wrap Up!

I've been working like a mad woman this summer (pretty much like any summer) but the last week in particular has been really busy.

There's been a lot of editing and a lot of talking about editing that's on it's way. My next Witch Hospital Romance, Ascension is in progress, set to release in October (I'll have a firm date soon). I shared the cover with my newsletter folks (sorry, gotta be subscribed if you want sneak peeks!) and hope to have some preorder links in the very near future.

I've been writing a couple of passion projects. One is is almost done but on hold. The passion projects are good for my writerly soul but they don't necessarily (at this time) pay the bills so I've had to set the second one aside for a little while. I'll get back to it once the work pile clears.

I have a new series starting over at Totally Bound Publishing called Wicked Distractions. The first book, Wicked Disclosure will release in March of 2020. Once I have a final blurb and cover, I'll be sharing it here.

My next release with Entangled Publishing is tentatively called The Heart Broker. I'm awaiting a cover and final blurb on that one too. I'm not sure of the release date but I'm sure I'll hear about it soon.

I did an interview at NFBooks about writing and creativity. You can check it out here. 

So, yeah, busy summer and looking like a busy fall. I like being busy and I like having a project on the go and one to look forward to so this all makes me happy.

I hope everyone reading this had a fantastic summer with time to relax. I'm going to get back to it but I'll be around to update with news as soon as I have it.

Things are Brewing!

I popped on here today and realized that I hadn't updated things since April...oopsie! The main reason for that is well...I don't have much to report at the moment.


I'm writing away. Getting lots of projects done and squared away. I'm waiting on information about upcoming book releases and whatnot. Sooooo I'm in limbo at the moment. 

I should have a new cover for my next Witch Hospital book very soon! I saw a mock up of it the other day and it's almost ready!

If you want a for sure check in from me then you should sign up for my newsletter: CLICK HERE. I do put that out every month. 

Other than that...summer is all about work, work, work so I'm enduring the heat and writing up new stories to share with you all soon!

It's Release Day for Fortune's Fool!

It's here!! Finally!  For the next three months you'll be able to read it for free on Kindle Unlimited or one-click it on Amazon. LINK

Mercenary. Vampire Hunter. All around supernatural herder. That’s me. You find yourself on my capture list and it’s as good as done.

Consider that a personal guarantee from Jet Black.

The current job is to find the witch who was supposed to save the world and end The Dark War. Unfortunately, she’s on Vampire Island, a notorious prison for I’ve helped fill.

Once there, I’m forced to team up with some other particular a certain lynx shifter, Jason, to whom I owe my life. Can’t seem to keep my hands off him either.

So here’s the problem...I’ve got a spell to get me and the witch off the island—a one way ticket for two. It’s a death sentence for Jason if I leave him behind. But it’s a death sentence for all of us it I don’t. I have to choose between my heart and the fate of the world. All because some sketchy little witch couldn’t do the one thing she was born to do.

Saving the world can’t be that hard, can it?

I guess that’s for me to decide.

Another Year Gone By

2018 was a year of resolution for me. Not like New Year's resolutions where you say you're going to start exercising and quit eating cake but instead gain twenty pounds and eat ALL the cake ALL the time. I mean resolution as in, I resolved some things and I'm slowly moving forward.

The first resolution for me relates to my health. The last three years have been...well...not very good health-wise. I've had multiple E.R. visits and so many doctor's appointments it isn't funny. I've also had two surgeries and a whole lot of pain. As this year closes, I'm happy (and a little cautious) to say that things are looking good. My last surgery appears to have been successful and I'm slowly regaining my strength and stamina.

My day job related resolution actually closes a lot of turmoil I had about my job. Over the years I faced a lot of frustration and anger at the workload and the stress that came with it. I kept having to make constant choices over dividing my time between writing and doing overtime day job work. Overworking actually contributed to some of my health issues as well. In April last year I applied for a new job, one that really suited me and that I wanted for a long time. Much to my surprise, I got it! It's a three-four year contract in the same profession but with very different day-to-day activities. It's giving me a chance to learn a lot and it's also helping me reset and renew my passion for my career.

With regards to writing, resolution came in the form of acceptance.  After my publisher closed and I got picked up by a new one, I was a little lost. I was writing a lot but those projects were sitting on my hard drive because I wasn't sure what to do with them. There was a period of time where I was stuck in publishing limbo. This year I got my shit together and released three books.

Burning Kiss

The Witches of White Willow

AND Feral Heart

I'm really proud of that. After all the ups and downs I've had with regards to my publishing career, getting the ball rolling again feels great. It wasn't all a cake walk, lots of hard work went into getting those books out but it's been very worth it.

I've also written four new books this year, and you'll be seeing the fruits of my labor in 2019.

I got to do an event with my long-time writing friend Krista Walsh which was a lot of fun. (And also a great learning experience where public readings are concerned.) Once again Forster's Book Garden hosted me. Their support over the past few years has been totally amazing.

All in all, 2018 was very busy and when I look back at all the things that happened I wonder how I managed it all. Looking forward to 2019, I know I'll be working just as hard because I have many things planned that will continue to move me forward. Where 2018 was about resolution, 2019 will be about moving on with strength and peace of mind and hopefully a whole lot of success. 

I wish you all a Happy New Year and thank you for sharing this journey with me!
