2nd Book in the "Beasts" Series in the works!

You read that right! The next book in my "Mating of the Beasts" series is on the way!

You will see all your favorite characters again, Lea, Rowen, Erik, as well as new Beasts! You will meet more members of the Pack as well as a few members of Rowen's old Pack as they attempt to protect the territory from... Oops, I almost gave it away.

Right now, the book is a bit choppy, so it will need major editing. I hit the 20,000 word mark today and it probably will not be too much longer. I gave up writing long books a few hundred thousand words ago. "The Finicky Feline" barely topped 30,000 and this one may be a tad longer.

I am enjoying writing "Beasts" far too much. Someone needs to tell me to stop so I can actually get some work done... Thankfully, I will be taking April off which means I may be able to get this book finished and released. The editing will take a while, though, and the cover is always a hold up. However, I'll have a lot of free time to get that done!

Have you checked out "Mating of the Beasts: The Finicky Feline" yet? It is the first book in the series. Did you like it? Please, share your thoughts! I want feedback from my readers.

Read "Mating of the Beasts: The Finicky Feline" now!

Mating of the Beasts: The Finicky Feline You can buy it now for only 99 cents! Expect more in this series...

It is coming...

My proof-reader went through my new book, so today I will be making the appropriate edits and then I will submit it to the Copyright office. My guess is that the book will be available on the Amazon Kindle within the week.

The second bit of news this morning is that I will have a new cover for "Hunter: Secrets Revealed" soon. I commissioned a wonderful artist and today she showed me the cover's progress and it looks amazing! I may end up commissioning her to do my new book's cover as well, but for now I have a good temporary cover.

I hope everyone had a good weekend! Next week, you may have a new book to read. ;)

Start the count down!

I am posting this in the hopes that it will encourage me (and help me remember) to finish my new book. My goal is to submit it to the Copyright office this week. That does not, however, mean it will be published this week. I still need a book cover and my proof reader needs to help me make final edits.

The cover will be the biggest delay. On one hand, I could make a very simple cover myself that will look... not very attractive. On the other hand, I could commission someone to make the cover for me, but it will probably be at least a month before the cover is completed. Rock and a hard place, you know. Plus, I have yet to find someone to commission.

I will probably do what I did for the "Ways of the Pack" series. I will make a temporary cover so I can get the book out quickly. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea what I want the cover to look like... Hopefully, I will get a cover done soon.

Are you looking forward to my new book?

Nearly There...

My new book is nearly complete. I have a few more scenes to add and then comes the editing, but I hope to have it published by the end of the month. Below, you can read a short description of the book. This may or may not be the official description when I publish it. Please, share your thoughts!

"The Stines are a normal family...a nice home, a thriving antique business, and two kids. Son Eric, in high school, has a secret girlfriend while Lea, high school graduate and general loner, spends her time knee deep in the family business.

But this family has a secret...a secret none of them can share. Within each of them lies a Beast...a Beast they must learn to control...and that is not an easy task.

To complicate things, a stranger arrives on their doorstep, and although the family welcomes him into their circle, Lea has too many walls to trust anyone completely. The stranger begins to pull Lea's walls down, one at a time, but when she finally begins to accept him, another stranger arrives with information that could turn Lea's world upside down.

Torn between feelings she can not control and information she can not deny, Lea is faced with a choice...a choice that could endanger all of them."

Finally, I have a blog...

It took me long enough. ;)

So, down to business. I got this account so that people can know what I'm up to and what books are in the works. If you haven't checked out my previous books, you can find links to them at the bottom of this post.

Currently, I have three books published and many, many books in the works.  The book I am currently working hard on is completely separate from my book series "Ways of the Pack." I would say that it is 99% finished. I only have a scene or two to add in the middle and then comes the editing.

I am keeping the details of this book secret for now, but I will tell you that there are shape-shifters, murderers, deception, romance, and quite a bit more. My proof reader says that it is my best work yet! I hope everyone feels the same when they finally get to read it.  I will tentatively say that it will be available within the next two months, but hopefully within the month. I cannot make any promises, though, due to my busy schedule.

Watch this Blog for updates and possibly some snippets from upcoming books!

Until next time...
