Looking Ahead to 2020

Last week, I flipped through my 2019 calendar to see what I’d published. I mentioned that I’m proud of what I accomplished, even though it wasn’t quite as much as I’d hoped for. I seem to always do this–expect more of myself than I’m actually capable of.

And that’s fine. I like dreaming big.

So let’s look at what 2020 may or may not have in store….

More Rock Creek Clan books!

Ruthless Knight, the fifth book in the Fierce Mates: Rock Creek Clan series, is already up for preorder, and it’ll come out in February,  woot! I’ve been looking forward to Nolan’s story since I began writing this series. It’s a blast so far. 🙂 Click here to pre-order your copy!

Alphas & Alchemy: Fierce Mates!

This is a nine-book series planned with Keira Blackwood. They aren’t reverse harem books like our Spellbound Shifters series; instead, each book features a single hero and heroine and they take place in the fictional town of Forbidden, Kentucky. Expect hilarity, weird-ass bad guys, and sexy shenanigans. They’ll be released first on Apple Books, B&N, and Kobo before coming off those sites and going onto Amazon and Kindle Unlimited. Grab Book 1, Claimed in Forbidden, by clicking here. It’s coming out in January!

An Unnamed Series!

I can’t say anything about this one yet, but it’ll be a coauthored series with someone new, and we’ve been excitedly exchanging emails about it for months now! Cannot wait for this one.

Another Unnamed Series!

I have alllll the ideas, it seems, and there’s another something new cooking away in my brain! I’m really excited about it, and I’ve already pestered Keira about making more covers for me!

More Dark Pines Pride books!

I have a killer outline for the fifth Fierce Mates: Dark Pines Pride book, and I’m itching to write it.

ONE Anthology!

I’m trying to back off on the anthologies in 2020 after doing…three? four? in 2019. I absolutely love collaborating with other authors, but it’s a lot of work and I need to take a breath or ten. This year, I’ll be taking part in a shifter anthology in the spring, and that’s all the anthology fun I have planned.

You can pre-order Bound to Change on Amazon by clicking here.

I’m so ready…

I’m ready for 2020 because I think it’ll be a fabulous year, full of fabulous books to read and write. Thanks so much for being a part of my author life and joining me!

Planners, Calendars, and Goals!

Yes, honey, I know. It’s January 1st and could we please just recover from staying up too late last night instead of talking about resolutions?

Nope. I didn’t stay up late, mwahahaha, and I’m ready to kick some ass this year!

My tools include books, two calendars, and a publishing schedule that will probably have me hiding under the bed come March. Oh, and my phone’s yoga app, because a set of resolutions isn’t complete without some kind of promise to get in shape.

Four books are on my January reading list, two of which I’ve already read at least once (twice, in the case of Deep Work).

  • You Are a Badass, by Jen Sincero
  • Your Best Year Ever, by Michael Hyatt
  • The Power of Full Engagement, by Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz
  • Deep Work, by Cal Newport

goals

Two calendars–one is my planner. I’m branching out this year and moving beyond my 3-ring binder with the removable calendar pages. Instead, I’ll be using a Simple Elephant planner. I like the space it has for a mini vision board and goal-setting–not only for the beginning of the year, but for each week. Also, lots of pages at the back for notes and scribbles about how I might take over the world and spread the joy of paranormal romance throughout the land. (The downside is it doesn’t lie flat and I’m already fighting with it. I was giving the Happy Planners at Michael’s a longing gaze last week. My next planner will be spiral-bound!)

The other calendar is a boring 8.5×11 monthly agenda. I need a spot to keep track of what I’m publishing and when, with a nice big view of each month. I can also keep track of when I’m sharing friends’ books, and when they’re sharing mine, as well as giveaway start and end dates.

The publishing schedule has me releasing a Fierce Mates book every other month. This isn’t too ambitious on its own…but when we factor in all the reverse harem projects I’m writing and publishing with Keira in 2019, it might start to feel like a lot. We shall see!

The Rose King!

Rose King cover(1)

The Rose King is a little novelette I decided to write for my newsletter subscribers. They’ve been getting one installment each month, just a chapter or two, over the past few months. While I do plan to publish an edited version, I’m still inviting people to join my mailing list in order to get these installments and read it for FREE.

That said, maybe you need a little more convincing to join my newsletter (despite the fact that my newsletter is never spammy and you get free books in addition to The Rose King and you sometimes will get to hear about awesome book deals and see photos of my kitten…), so I’ll point you to the first part of The Rose King. You’ll recognize the heroine and hero, Gemma and Rex, from Book 3 of the Corona Pride, Savage Heartache, where they help Nina and Jameson on their journey to luuuuurve. ❤

New Series Announcement!

It is with GREAT excitement that I tell you guys that the Corona Pride series, a spin-off of the Sierra Pride, will be released starting in March! I’ve listened to your suggestions about wanting longer books, so these are double the length (hahaha) and double the fun (rowr).

I’ll be revealing the cover for Book 1, Savage Yearning, next month, but in the meantime, here are the titles and the release schedule:

Savage Yearning (March 2017)

Savage Loss (April 2017)

Savage Heartache (May 2017)

Savage Thirst (June 2017)

Savage Bliss (July 2017)

These books have been a joy to work with so far–I’m in the middle of revising Book 2 and drafting Book 3. Developing old friends and creating new ones is such a blast, and I can’t wait to share the Corona Pride with you!
