This week has been an exciting one! April 1st saw the release of Eat Your Heart Out, a romance anthology to benefit The Hunter Project. And April 3rd gave us the release of Lullaby of Death, Skye MacKinnon’s and my second book in the Lost Siren reverse harem series! ❤ Each book is available on Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play, B&N, and Amazon.

Last week, I mentioned being more of a futuristic-thinking kind of person, and that really is me 100%. I dutifully marked the books published in 2020, and don’t get me wrong, I love all those books! But I’m also way more energetic when I think about the books to come!
Here’s the plan so far (which is, as all things in the future, subject to change):
January 11th: Filthy Cowboy
February 16th: Blood Beast
February 24th: Exes and Exorcisms (with Keira Blackwood)
April 3rd: Lullaby of Death (with Skye MacKinnon)
April 26th: Forbidden Fangs #3 (no title yet) (with Keira Blackwood)
May 10th: Filthy Prince
August 16th: Spellcaster Embraced (with Keira Blackwood)
Do I have more planned in 2021 than what’s discussed here? You betcha. But past a few months, things get a little fuzzy, so we’ll stop with these seven books. (Only five are pictured, because I ran out of room in my little graphic, and it’s late at night as I write this so…this is all for now.)
I absolutely want to write more Charmslinger books (I even have a title picked out for Book 3!) and at least one more Junkyard Shifters book beyond Filthy Prince. There are other projects I desperately want to tackle, also, and I struggle daily with the essential pain that I can’t fit more writing hours into each day. Trust me, I’ve tried to write more. The result is migraines and a stiff body and no time with my family. So, slow(ish) and steady is how I have to roll.
Thanks for letting me blather on about the future, because this is my jam! ❤
I’m much more of a look-forward than a look-back kind of gal, but it is important to celebrate accomplishments, so I’m gonna force my ass to sit down and recount all the books I published this year. Ready?
I’m including a universal link for each book, so if you haven’t snagged it yet, you can now!

Sooooo that’s 2020! Book-wise, it’s been great. Everything-else-wise, not so much. I am so looking forward to 2021, and that’s what next week’s post will cover! ❤
- Skye and Liza started writing it over Facebook Messenger before moving it to Google docs
- 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)
- Lysander’s name was Tyler until a third into writing the manuscript
- The legend of the Lorelei is a real legend, originating in Germany, and you can visit the statue
- While talking about the untitled work-in-progress, Liza called it “the Skyza book”
- The book was finished before they realized Avery didn’t have a last name. Liza picked Bennett because she’s a Pride & Prejudice fan
- Charles was half elf before Skye and Liza decided he should be half faerie lord
- Keira Blackwood, another paranormal romance author (and Liza’s other coauthor) designed the cover
- 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
- Skye wrote the German words that Avery sings to heal Tasha
- A placeholder title on their Google doc read “Avery’s Epic Vandemic Tale”
- While writing and editing, Liza and Skye teased each other constantly about British English vs. American English
I’m so excited because a new book came out on Saturday and it is extremely fun!
My friend Skye MacKinnon and I teamed up to write a reverse harem series featuring a siren and the three hotties who fall for her. It’s a post-apocalyptic paranormal setting, full of adventure and steam.
The origin story of this novel is one of my favorite parts about it! While Skye and I were messaging on Facebook back in April, feeling sad about the pandemic and having to shelter in place, Skye sent me an intriguing paragraph about a girl trying to find toilet paper at the store during a “Vandemic”–a vampire apocalypse.
I messaged back, continuing the story, and we went on like that for days before realizing we had a novel in the works. 🙂
