Book Sale to Celebrate My Upcoming Release

Hello all!

In one week, FOR BETTER OR FOR WOLF will release. I can’t wait for you all to read Connor’s story. Connor is one of the werewolf twins and he is such a fun character, I think you will really enjoy him. And Olivia is such a great foil for him!

With 7 days until the release, I thought we would celebrate this week with some teasers and a book sale! Look out for the teasers later this week, but the book sale is running now. TO HAVE AND TO HOWL, book three in my wedding planners series is on sale for a limited time at 99 cents.

HOWL is the story of second love. I have a special place in my heart for this couple. It features Jack who is Connor’s twin. So even though the books in this series are all standalone, it’s fun to read the other twin’s story as well.

Check it out below…

Law means following the rules. Love means breaking them.

Julia Cole is a lawyer on a mission. After three long years, her husband’s murderers have been convicted. Until their leader breaks out of magically-strengthened, impossible-to-break-handcuffs in the courtroom, that is. Someone is helping them. And that someone is threatening Julia. But she will not back down from them or the man tasked to protect her…a man who scrambles her long-buried emotions.

Jack Dawson is a werewolf with a secret. One that could change his life forever. But his problems have to take a back seat while he protects Julia. He can’t afford to let down his guard—against the evil forces threatening Julia, against his growing feelings for her, fighting to be heard, and against his secret—which could destroy everything.

Can Julia and Jack finally let go of their pasts and begin a new happy ever after together?

 

Why 9556 Is a Magic Number!

Have I piqued your interest? Why in the world would 9556 be a magic number? Well, that is the number of words I wrote this weekend on my third novel in my demon brothers series. And the best part of that number? The last two words were THE END!

Wow, I am so happy to have the first draft done, done, done! Cue the music, confetti, balloons, and chocolate, because AE has written Misha, Aleksei, and Sergei’s stories.

Now we jump into edits, edits, edits! And then the books should be heading your way in the fall. I can’t wait to share this Russian demon family’s stories. It was great to dive into Misha’s family in a big way.

Normally an author provides splashes of backstory to build a character. In this instance the back story actually got to come to life in the form of two more sexy demon brothers, an outrageous Grandmother (Babushka) and a smooth-talking Father. So we get romance, and family drama, and learning how to fit in. We also have some cute kids thrown in as well!

Over the next few months, I’ll be telling you more, more, more about these stories. I’ll also share covers, blurbs, and release dates.

I just wanted to share the news, so you could celebrate along with me! And don’t worry about things getting too crazy. My celebration last night included a vanilla/chocolate twist cone with crunch.

Yep, I know how to throw a party!

 

A Paranormal Writer’s Halloween

Yes, I know. I didn’t write my Monday blog yesterday. But since Halloween was today, I decided to hold off until one of my FAVORITE days. As many of you who have been following me for awhile know, I am in love with Halloween. Costumes, parties, decorations…you name it…and I’m doing it.

Each year I dress up for work and keep it a secret until the day. My coworkers pester me for weeks, hoping I’ll slip up and give them some sort of hint. But no dice. I like to build the anticipation. Kind of like with my stories!

Is it any wonder I write paranormal? Halloween is about escape and childhood and memories of a wonderful time. I think it’s worth the trip, don’t you?

Let me know what you think about this year’s costume. Marge Simpson was a hoot for me to wear, especially the wig!

Do you Trust Me?

girl-1275656_640Next week is the release of my second flashback story, Trust Me. This is another story about a young Kyle McKinley who is spreading her wings so to speak as she works for the Bureau of Supernatural Relations. This go around, she heads undercover for the first time, and in usual Kyle fashion she does it her own way.

But the theme for this story and honestly the crux of most of my stories is the idea of trust and how that can impact your relationships or lack thereof.

Most of the heroines (and sometimes heroes) of my stories come from a past where their ability to trust or be trusted has been damaged. There is something fundamental to the idea of letting someone close enough to you that you truly trust them. So it seemed appropriate for me to title this story Trust Me.

Ultimately in a romance part of the journey is bringing the couple together so that they find a way to trust each other and then love follows. But I also think trust permeates all relationships. For Kyle, in these early stories, it’s a love journey, but not of the romantic variety. It is a building of her relationship with her teammates and finding her own confidence in the process.

It’s a fun little story that releases on the 28th. You’ll like it, trust me on this.

Okay, I couldn’t help myself on that last line…too much? 🙂

Forget Me Release Day!

Hello my friends! Today is release day for Forget Me. I’m very excited to be back in the Mind Sweeper world I first created. Kyle, Misha, and Jean Luc are such wonderful characters to write, they feel like family to me. And like most families, they have been quite “vocal” about not getting to spend time with me lately.

So the flashback stories were born! I hope you enjoy this quick, fun read about Kyle coming to work for the Bureau of Supernatural Relations.

20170227_192121As usual, I have included my release day picture with my – kickbutt, writer princess tiara securely placed on my noggin. Since I am releasing the stories as digital only, I had to improvise and hold up a picture of my cover for you all to see.

I hope you enjoy this story to help celebrate the last day of February and welcome March.

Thanks for being such wonderful readers!

Forget Me

prequel-ver-2-2Find out where it all began…

Nineteen-year-old Kyle McKinley is having a really bad day. She gets caught stealing, her boyfriend abandons her, and—oh yeah—apparently, vampires, demons, and other beasties actually exist.

What’s a girl to do?

Accept a job offer with a paranormal shadow-type agency…

This is the story of how Kyle’s world is turned upside down and she meets her teammates, vampire Jean Luc and demon Misha, for the first time. And as usual, there’s a mystery with a paranormal twist to solve, and Kyle learns about herself in the process.

Keeping it Short & Sweet

once-upon-a-time-719174_640

As authors, it is often very hard to offer a straightforward, simple answer. After all, we are prone to wax poetic on any number of items, most especially our books. My novels normally range in the 85,000-95,000 range, so I am guilty of this myself!

A few months ago, I decided to visit my Mind Sweeper world again. A number of you have asked if I am “done” with Kyle and the gang. My answer to that is an emphatic HECK NO. So I started playing with ideas in my head about where I wanted to go next in this series, and I came to the conclusion – I would go backwards.

What? You are probably thinking, but too polite to voice out loud.

That’s okay. I hear your questions loud and clear. So let me explain.

I decided to write what I call flashback stories. Fun little snippets of some great firsts for Kyle. When we met Kyle in Mind Sweeper, she had already been working with Misha and Jean Luc for ten years. So I wondered…

  • How did she learn that paranormal exist?
  • How did she meet Misha and Jean Luc?
  • How did she fit into this new world?

And so my flashback stories were born. Over the next few months, I’ll be releasing three stories about a young Kyle McKinley thrown into a new world. These short stories are perfect with a blanket, a cup of tea (or something stronger) on a cold winter’s night. And, added bonus, you get to spend time again with Kyle and her merry band of supernatural.

So something short and sweet will be coming your way. Stay tuned for more fun info!

Romeo & Juliet with a Paranormal Twist

venice-1049926_1280

Instead of a teaser today, I am sharing a link to an article I wrote for Heroes & Heartbreakers about Romeo and Juliet. Of course my Romeo and Juliet are of the paranormal variety. My new release centers around a hero and heroine who are supposed to hate each other, but somehow that doesn’t happen. Romance ensues…

Halloween Party: Take 2

20151026_192134This past weekend, I had my second Halloween party of the season, which was my neighborhood costume party. This year, my neighbors came up with AMAZING costumes!

I apparently bring out the competitors in each of them. Everyone takes pride in being very creative. Each year, the group votes for best costume. And then a ribbon or a ‘very-expensive’ plastic trophy is awarded to the winners.

The winning couple this year dressed like a farmer and a Holstein cow including udder. For those of you who are city-folk, Holstein are cows with black and white markings. And if you don’t know what an udder is, I’ll let you Google that 🙂

Halloween reinforces (for me) that we all still have a child in us. One that wants to pretend. To be someone else if only for a night. Imagination is key. Maybe that’s why I love Halloween so much. Instead of writing about a character, I get to personify one instead. So cool…

Happy Halloween!
