I love puzzles. I’m a huge fan of Sudoku, but I also adore word searches! Here’s one I made for the Junkyard Shifters series. You can find the words here in the following image, or download a pdf to print out and work with on paper. ❤
Filthy Beast is out now! What?! I’m super excited about this one.
“That’s it, my beautiful Lena,” he whispered, then took her mouth in a kiss so hot, she thought she was melting from the inside. “I’m going to show you what it means to be mine.”
A little story from behind the scenes–I was wrecked by a couple parts in this book. Tear-my-heart-up, then sew-it-back-together wrecked. There was this one part, and I won’t spoil it by telling you what it was, that I knew was coming and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to write. I kept having second thoughts, because I just did NOT want it to happen.
But, happen it did. And like all painful things, it helped the characters grow.
But damn. It was hard!
We are so close to Filthy Beast‘s release, and I am so eager to see this book out in the world! Carter and Lena were so tough on each other at first–especially Lena, coming from a situation that had taught her not to trust anyone–especially not anyone with violent tendencies. And Carter, well. He liked to fight.
If you haven’t preordered your copy yet, I suggest you get it now! I don’t want you to miss out on the preorder sale. Tap the cover below for the link. ❤
“I’ll stay and keep watch,” Carter said.
“No, thanks. I’ll be fine. You can go,” she said. It was a struggle to keep her voice even and light. “Goodnight.”
Her heart ached as he shifted into his bear and walked off into the wet woods, but in the end, neither of them had a claim on the other, and fate seemed to want to keep it that way.
I gotta say, I am having a blast with this crew!
First, Keira Blackwood gave me the freaking best cover for Book 1, Filthy Beast. I couldn’t have even dreamed up this beauty!
Then, I get a big old group of bad boy shifters full of flaws and angst and guilt. They take their shirts off and fight each other, like, all the time. And what’s not to love about hotties flexing their muscles and showing off their strength?
And THEN a woman shows up and the shit really hits the fan. Nothing makes me feel more wicked than laughing while I watch a shapeshifter hottie lose his mind over his mate.
The process for this series is involving a lot of laps around the park while I think out scenes and characters. I’m talking into my phone as I go, so I don’t forget new ideas, and I probably sound like a crazy lady going on about inner beasts and fated mates and battles for dominance.
But it’s really freaking fun. 🙂
So, Filthy Beast is up for preorder for ONLY 99 PENNIES (coming out May 11th)! The prequel novella, Filthy Vandal, will be released in the Bound to Change anthology on April 17th, so you can get an early taste of these trashy romances. 😉
I’m doing all the things, it feels like!
First, OUT NOW on Apple Books, B&N, and Kobo: Fated in Forbidden!
If you buy books from one of these retailers, get your copy NOW. This is not a drill! It will be coming down from those retailers very soon and will then be only on Amazon.
Up next: Rising From the Ashes
As I wrote last week, all profits from this anthology benefit relief efforts for Australia. It is available at all major retailers!
Bound to Change
This anthology features all kinds of shifter goodness! Coming in April to Amazon. It will include Filthy Vandal, a prequel novella in my BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW SERIES, Junkyard Shifters! For more details on the series, go here.
…which leads me to: Filthy Beast, Book 1 of the Junkyard Shifters series
This is a 99-cent pre-order, people! And I do those on my solo-authored books, like…never. Part of the reason, I’ll be totally honest, is that often a first-in-series will later be discounted to help promote a future book in the series. Which, fine, maybe you pay full price for the awesome benefit of getting Book 1 immediately (hell, I pay full price on new releases all the time because I want them NOW). But why not give you the discount out of the gate? The other reason is that I would love to reach some new folks who maybe haven’t given my books a chance yet. So please, help spread the word!
That’s about it, I think! Keira Blackwood and I will have some new books up for pre-order soonishly. Hmm, I think she’s waiting for me to finish a chapter on one of those…maybe I should get on that? 😉
