August Updates

It’s been a busy, busy summer around here and I realize it’s time for me to get some updates for you guys! For those who don’t know, I’m working on doing a lot of mini-updates on Facebook, so if you’d like more regular knowledge of what’s going on, or just want to chat, feel free to poke me there.

So, first and foremost, if I’m tackling updates, let’s talk Shifter Town Enforcement, eh?

-Big Cats Don’t Purr is in edits. It’s off with the editor, I’ve already gotten feedback. She loves the book, and now I’m just waiting to get back the nitty gritty list of things I need to polish up. I will get you guys a release date for exactly when in September as soon as I get a look at the edits.

-Bree’s story. For those of you who’ve emailed me wondering if Breanne Torres will be getting her Happily Ever After, the answer is YES. She’ll be appearing in a Christmas novella that will be coming in October. The novella will also appear in a Christmas Anthology in November. So you’ll have two different ways of picking up her story. I’ll just say I love Bree as a character, and her main-man Hunter is incredibly sexy. (AND you can expect some snippets from this story soon, I’ll be dropping some small excerpts on Facebook quite a bit).

So while Big Cats was a long wait, you’ll have two STE stories back to back this fall.

For those who haven’t read this series yet, I’m working on release Shifter Town Enforcement 1 & 2 in a box set, so you can get both Hounded and Cry Sanctuary in one place. This is already live on Amazon and Smashwords, and I’ll talk about why it’s not on Barnes and Noble a little further down.

For a limited time only, this box set is on SALE for $2.99!!!! Yes, both books for the price of Hounded alone. If you know people who haven’t read this series and want to recommend it, now is the time to get these. With book 3 releasing soon, now’s the time to grab these two. (And if you need a copy that will work your Nook, Smashwords sells ePubs. Though I REALLY hope it’ll be up on Barnes and Noble this weekend. -fingers crossed-)

What’s after that, you ask?

-Frozen Mercy, book #2 of the Northern Wolves Trilogy will be coming this December. I’ve already started this book and I’m loving Quinn and Dee. This starts right where Cold Mercy left off. And I’ll be doing a cover reveal for this book soon. It’s a sexy, sexy cover and I totally love it, so I can’t wait to show you guys.

-Bending Steele has gone FREE. This is not permanent. It’s only for a limited time. So if you haven’t tried it, now’s the chance to grab it.

And, oh my gosh, as if I didn’t have enough updates already, I do have another series in the planning stages. Right now it’s still in the super-secret-stage, but I can assure you all that the first book won’t hit until after Frozen Mercy is out, so for all you Northern Wolves fans waiting on book 2, Quinn and Dee’s story is getting done first. I promise.

I feel like I’m missing something, but this update is probably long enough. I will say, if you haven’t signed up for my Newsletter, I would. -wink-

Edit: Whoops. Yup. Totally forgot to explain what’s going on with Barnes and Noble stuff. I’ll do a second post and link from here shortly. Sorry! Barnes and Noble – Temporary Issues

Updates

I think the first step–before I go into any detailed updates, is to apologize to everyone. I disappeared for quite a little time to deal with with things happening in my personal life, but this place has been quiet for way longer than I wanted it to be. I am sorry and I thank everyone who’s stuck around, emailed me asking me how things are going, and most importantly, loved my books. You’ll be seeing a lot of activity from me in the next few months, so I hope it makes up for my absence the first half of the year.

Shifter Town Enforcement

For those who’ve been following this site rather closely know I’d planned a novella in the STE series titled Pale Moon Cry. It was not related to the main storyline. I ended up shelving the project for my sanity. I do hope to go back to it, but we’ll see. My main concern is getting the next book out to you guys.

On a happier front, I hope to have Big Cats Don’t Purr, Shifter Town Enforcement #3 available early September! The first draft is written, it’s currently in revision hell, will shortly be making it’s rounds with my beta readers, and is slated to go to my editor in August. I am terribly sorry the book has been pushed back as far as it has been, but things are moving and it’s coming! Thank you all for your patience and I’m so sorry for the delay.

What can you expect coming up like NOW?

The cover art and blurb reveal for Big Cats Don’t Purr. I should have the final cover art ready to go up tomorrow!

Northern Wolves

Frozen Mercy, Northern Wolves #2 will be coming this winter! With Barren Mercy, the final book in the trilogy hitting early next year (hopefully right around spring thaw :-p).

Other Stuff

The website will be undergoing some changes here within the next few weeks. I’ll roll them out slowly, but everything will look a little neater shortly. There will also be a few changes on the business side of things that I’ll address once I work them out. Hopefully it’ll make my life easier.

Be on the lookout for Bending Steele going FREE. This will be a limited time deal (though it’s currently on sale for $0.99), but I hope to drop the price on this next month. So if you’ve been waiting to try it, keep an eye out for in July! If you don’t want to wait and haven’t read it yet, email me! I’ll send you a copy now.

I also have a few secret projects I’m working on behind the scenes that I hope to update you guys about soon. I promise, they’re good projects. Ones I really think you’ll enjoy.

Taking a Step Back – Delays and an apology

As the end of January nears…I’m sure quite a few of you are wondering where the promised Shifter Town Enforcement novella is… After all, it was originally promised in November.

To be honest, when I started this novella, I never thought it would be this hard to write. I surely never thought that it would best me. I’ve redone this novella several times, restarted it from scratch so many times I now have multiple folders inside folders, trying to keep myself organized with which is latest version.

I’ve even tried scrapping the original entirely and completely forgetting every word I’d ever written on it. Something about this project calls to me, but my gosh I can’t seem to get it to work. But what’s making this even harder is the looming deadline.

I’ve always been a bit of a perfectionist–I was the straight-A student in class who never missed a deadline. Heck, I was never late and I surely never missed an assignment, let ALONE the deadline. And these past few months I’ve been dealing with a lot of personal issues, things I just don’t feel comfortable talking about in public–but I will say, that the missed deadline in November was quite alarming to me, and I’ve driven myself into quite a bit of a panic lately.

I don’t like having to admit to another delay, and I am so truly sorry. Because right now, life and this little novella have bested me quite a bit (honestly, I think it’s more *life* than the novella, but right now, they both seem linked to me). So I’m taking some time.
I’m going to step back. I’m not putting this book on a deadline (and I am going to work on other projects while I try and figure it out), but I will be rather quiet in the online world. I will do my best to keep up with emails, and definitely all Authorgraphs and swag requests. I don’t know when Pale Moon Cry will be out, I really hope it’s before Big Cats Don’t Purr–but thankfully, this novella isn’t connected to the main storyline so it’s place on the timeline is flexible.

I’m really sorry you guys. I’m by no means backing down, but I’m giving myself breathing room and relaxing some stress in my life–that way I’ll hopefully be back in top form soon.
