Writing Update: Filthy Cowboy

Filthy Cowboy is coming out in January, and I’m so excited! Here’s my love list for the book:

  • an innocent librarian heroine
  • a taciturn cowboy hero
  • a dark past
  • scary bad guy
  • references to The Bachelor
  • a couple of librarian jokes made me giggle
  • the hero and heroine were pen pals before they were lovers
  • the hero writes poetry
  • this is the longest Junkyard Shifters book yet! (Only by a couple thousand words, but still!)

Fun Facts About Song of Blood

Now that Song of Blood is out, I was reminiscing about how this book came to be, and I realized there are some juicy little tidbits about its creation that readers might enjoy knowing.
Before we get to that, two orders of business!
First, Mates and Mayhem is out now! This anthology includes TWELVE books and includes the Junkyard Shifters prequel novella, Filthy Vandal. Click here for the universal link.
Second, Filthy Beast is 99 cents everywhere! For the universal link, click here.
Now for those fun facts about Song of Blood!
  1. Skye and Liza started writing it over Facebook Messenger before moving it to Google docs
  2. They did not plot it out before writing it (something that makes Liza VERY nervous, to the point where she turned into a clingy girlfriend and messaged Skye constantly with questions)
  3. Lysander’s name was Tyler until a third into writing the manuscript
  4. The legend of the Lorelei is a real legend, originating in Germany, and you can visit the statue
  5. While talking about the untitled work-in-progress, Liza called it “the Skyza book”
  6. The book was finished before they realized Avery didn’t have a last name. Liza picked Bennett because she’s a Pride & Prejudice fan
  7. Charles was half elf before Skye and Liza decided he should be half faerie lord
  8. Keira Blackwood, another paranormal romance author (and Liza’s other coauthor) designed the cover
  9. The “real” Song of Blood (lyrics to the tune of “My Favorite Things” that Liza wrote after reading one of Skye’s battle scenes) was a random comment Liza threw into the margin of the manuscript as a joke
  10. Skye wrote the German words that Avery sings to heal Tasha
  11. A placeholder title on their Google doc read “Avery’s Epic Vandemic Tale”
  12. While writing and editing, Liza and Skye teased each other constantly about British English vs. American English

New Release: Filthy Alpha

Filthy Alpha, Jase and Blythe’s story, is out now!

JS3 teaser 2

Writing these two was such a blast–I haven’t written a fake relationship story before (umm…that I can remember! Correct me if I’m wrong!) and watching these two finally get over their hang-ups and go for it was immensely satisfying! Jase is just a great guy all around, and Blythe’s prickly exterior is her only defense to protect her very tender heart.

Anyway, I hope y’all love these two characters as much as I do!
