Welcome to my new website and my blog!
Until I get the hang of blogging, I’m going to just give you a quick update:
There will be a Book 4 in the Fearsome Series. I know many of you were expecting this book to be published in mid 2015, and so was I. Unfortunately, 2015 was a very difficult year for me with a sports injury (broken collar bone for one) that incapacitated me for most of the year and a bout with pneumonia that flattened me for several more months after that.
So, here I am now, halfway through 2016 and I have a completed first draft of Book 4. FLAWLESS is the working title and it stars Peyton, Cooper’s younger brother from FAITHFUL, and Talia, the personal chef who has been behind the scenes in every book. I love these two characters, and I love them together. Like the other people in my fictional town of Hera, NY, Peyton and Talia are imperfect, and like the others, they are hard working, both ambitious in their own ways, and both burdened with very real problems. I think most people who have read my books know that I like my characters to struggle with every day problems like the rest of us, and I like to throw in a BIG issue because real life is full of big issues and it’s really about how we face these problems head on, how we behave with others, and how we embrace humor and love to get through life. But I can’t throw down my hero and heroine, constantly trouncing them without letting love and steamy romance take center stage. After all, it’s a romance first and foremost!
So, when will the book be published? Here’s the kicker, I got it in my head that the book didn’t have enough of what I wanted. I have to love a book to death before I release it which is why I don’t promote release dates until a book has been revised and edited multiple times. And that’s exactly what’s going on right now. I’m revising the hell out of FLAWLESS because Peyton and Talia’s story deserves it.
That said, I hope to publish FLAWLESS in the next three months. I hope. Much depends on my editors’ schedules and the rest of the professionals involved in producing my books.
