What’s Coming in 2014

Last year was awesome in terms of my writing. I’m hoping to make this year amazing. Here’s a short list of what I’ve already got in the works, but I hope to add more to it:

New Releases for 2014

From Samhain Publishing:
Born of Stone 
Release Date: May                                         This book is about gargoyles and is set in a fantasy world with a medieval flare.                                     

From Ellora’s Cave Publishing:
Erotic Influence
Release Date: TBA
This is the sequel to Erotic Images with related cahracters, but it can be read alone.

From Entanlged Publishing:
Zerachiel: Archangels Book I (working title)
Release Date: TBA
This is the first in a series about archangels who live among humans.

I still have a ton of WIPs as well, including the sequels to They Call Me Death and Day Shift. I’m hoping to have both of those contracted sometime this year. As for appearances, I will be attending the Romantic Times Readers Convention in New Orleans in May, and will be signing at the large book signing event on Saturday. Also, if I have any print releases this year, I will organize a small book tour to promote that as well.

Stay tuned for more!

Four Months In – Life Update

It’s mid-April, which means it’s officially been four months since my youngest was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. My family has learned how to read nutrition labels, count carbohydrates, inject insulin and take blood glucose readings. It’s been quite an interesting four months and we’ve made it through with only a few bumps in the road.
Spring break came and went with our annual road trip up into the Hill Country. We bypassed the Blue Bell ice cream factory this year for a stop to see miniature ponies. Then we camped at Lake Summerville for a couple of days. It was great spending the week with my girls, even if I didn’t get much writing done.

Professionally it has been a good year so far. I had an erotic release from Ellora’s Cave in January and am currently revising another to submit soon. I joined other Texas Authors of Romance Fiction members at the Houston Indie Book Festival at the beginning of this month and had a great time. Plus, I began a new blog post of reviewing characters and then giving away their books to my readers. Response has been good. So, what’s next?
I recently found out that I am able to submit the sequel to They Call me Death elsewhere. I’m disappointed that my publisher rejected it, but it happens. I’ve already changed Emily’s story and don’t feel comfortable doing so again. I want her story to stay true to what I’ve envisioned. It’s currently under review from a friend of mine who’s opinion I trust in letting me know if I really should change it up. Hopefully I’ll have information about where/when it will be published in the next couple of months. I’ve also submitted a vampire novella to one of my publishers and hope to hear back on it by the end of the month. My current WIPs are: another book in my shifter world, Kotori’s story, tentatively named Shifting Perceptions; a contemporary erotic novella about a photographer; and the sequel to Resignation about home-wrecker Heather, tentatively titled Redemption.

Anything new in your world? Feel free to let me know 😉
