A Look Back at 2023
No matter how you celebrate, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
2023 was a bit of a rollercoaster with high, lows, and even a few twists. I had surgery. I survived physical therapy. I wrote a lot of words. And I went on a ton of amazing adventures.
New Books This year
A look ahead at 2024
December was pretty lackluster. I spent every day of the month up until Christmas Eve sick. First, it was the flu. I had just started to get over that when I caught RSV. I seriously felt like I was drowning in my own mucus. That developed into bronchitis, and it was just a super miserable 3.5 weeks. I still have a stuffy nose and a bit of fatigue, but overall, I'm feeling much better now!
Unfortunately, being down for that long means no new book for this month. Not going to lie. I'm pretty disappointed about that, but there's a lot to look forward to in the upcoming year.
I'm going to be kicking off 2024 with a new Hunters Hollow book. The story came to me in a fever/NyQuil-induced dream, and I'm pretty excited about it. It's going to be another long one, so I'm not entirely sure when it will release. Once I'm a littler farther into it and more confident, I'll announce a release date and pre-order.
I'm not 100% sure about the title right now, but I can tell you that this will be Elliot Church's book.
Elliot is a necromancer from the Blackhaven Manor series. He was introduced in Dead Over Heels, and he made a cameo in Walking a Tight Trope. If you haven't read either of those books, don't worry. He'll get a full introduction with backstory, so you won't be missing anything.
I have at least one new Blackhaven Manor book planned for the first quarter, as well as the first book of the new Hexed and Vexed series. I don't like to plan too far ahead, so we'll see where the road leads after that.
Until next time, here's to a new year and new opportunities! I wish you all the very best!
First off, it's release day for Bad Habits! Yay! As always, you can find it on Amazon, and it is available to read with Kindle Unlimited.
Everyone at +One has a specialty. For Gage Ramsey, it’s less about the role or the venue, and all about the client. So, when he gets the call that a politician’s son needs help overhauling his image, he figures it’s just another day at the office.
But this isn’t any ordinary case.
From the moment Nathan Fairfax walks through the door—an hour late—Gage instantly dislikes him. Arrogant, entitled, and antagonistic, the guy tests his patience at every turn. As the days turn to weeks, however, he begins to see another side of Nathan, a part of him that could actually be worth saving.
Whatever the outcome, one thing is clear. Gage might have a reputation for putting difficult clients in their place, but this time, he has more than met his match.
My schedule for the rest of the year is a bit up in the air right now. I re-injured my knee a few weeks ago, and after conservative treatments failed, the doctor ordered another MRI last week. I won't know the results for a few more days, but there is a chance that I'll be headed back into the operating room.
I'm not nervous or worried. Been there, done that, right? I'm a little uncertain of what the rest of the year is going to look like in terms of releases, though.
Hopefully, everything is fine, and life will go on exactly as it has been.
With that being said, here's what my schedule looks like right now, barring any disruptions.
Next up is Royally Flocked, the 10th book of the Blackhaven Manor series.
Prince Orrin Nightstar will finally be getting his story. I'm pretty excited about this one, and I can't wait to share it with everyone. Release date is set for mid November, and preorder will be available soon.
After that, another Blackhaven Manor book, Loose Lips Sink Ships.
This will be King's story. We met him only briefly in Walking a Tight Trope, but he left an impression on me. Look for it to release in early December.
My last book of the year will be Hell's Bells: Hexed and Vexed, Book 1.
I've been talking about this spinoff for months, and I'm so excited to finally be introducing everyone to PRIMA - the Paranormal Recovery Institute for the Magically Afflicted. Otherwise known as Hell Hall.
Release is set for the end of December. More information to follow.
AGGHHH!!! I'm so excited!! Beauty and Bad Blood is available on Amazon, and as always, you can read it with your KU subscription!
There were a lot of stops and starts. Times when I felt like I would never finish it. For a while there, I swore this book was jinxed. Every time I would start working on it, something terrible would happen in my life, and I'd have to put it aside...again.
Over 87k words later, I have slayed the monsters, defeated the gods, and given the middle finger to the universe. And it's finally here!!
When a young woman turns up dead on the banks of the river with half her blood missing, vampires are the obvious suspects. Rogue Masters, however, doesn’t think the case is all that open and shut. As a special agent for the MOA Intelligence Division, it’s his job to find the truth. To do that, the last thing he needs is distractions.
So, of course, the most tempting distraction he’s ever seen strolls through the door of the local bakery, not just flipping the script, but rewriting it completely.
Stuck in a rut and drowning in his own insignificance, Dylan Murray needs a change. For starters, he needs to make a clean break from his selfish and demanding mother. It’s also probably a good time to swear off men, at least until he can get his life back on track. Spending some time in Hunters Hollow with his best friend is exactly what he needs to turn things around. The small town is quiet, a little boring, and completely free of the drama that plagued him in the city.
Now, if he can just stop thinking about a certain sexy vampire with penetrating eyes and a devilish smile, everything would be perfect.
Navigating the ups and downs of any new relationship is challenging. Doing so while searching for a killer will test more than just their commitment. When the worst happens, and Dylan joins the list of humans to mysteriously vanish from the French Quarter, Rogue will do whatever it takes to get his new mate back safely.
Even if that means becoming the very monster he’s meant to be hunting.
I'm going to be taking a break from vampires and werewolves for the month of September to work on the next +One book. Look for the blurb and preorder to be posted soon.
After that, I have at least 3 more Blackhaven Manor books on my calendar for this year, as well as the first book of a new series. More information on those coming soon!
