What's Happening With Me?
I did it... I turned 50. Ugh!
To escape the heat, we headed up into the New Mexico mountains to explore Santa Fe and all the cooler parts of America's southwest.
This picture is older than the pandemic, which means i was thinner. So, it's the one I used! Sorry, not sorry!
We were on old Route 66 though and had a great time. Besides the old route, we also went to Pie Town, NM as well as a couple of other ghost towns. (Yes, I had pie for my birthday. YUMMY!!!!
If you've never been to Santa Fe, I HIGHLY recommend it, but make sure you get away from all the touristy stuff and visit some of the ghost towns around the area too!
Winter (2022) Romance Cruise
Did you get your vaccine? If so, come join us on the 2022 Romance Cruise in January. We still have some openings left!
I got this really hare-brained idea. Wouldn't it be fun to do a cruise with a bunch of authors and our fans. So, I mentioned it to my friend/fan John Gilchrist who happens to be a travel agent and well… it’s happening!!
He was able to get us some great discounts, and you can sign up on my website but y’all this is going to be ridiculously fun! Thank goodness John is helping and Lisa Klein has agreed to be our personal assistant! It’d be impossible for me to do this on my own! (More details below)
Works in Progress...
Big Bend Series (out now!) – While exploring the Big Bend National Park, I was utterly amazed at how beautiful that part of the world is. The Rio Grande River is a paradise. I mean who would’ve ever guessed that? Anyway, over three months starting in June, I will release each of the three Big Bend books. I call them, tongue in cheek, my millennial cowboy paranormal ghost mystery romance series. Don't wait to pre-order book one now. The ghost story gathers momentum as the series goes on, but Flex and Mitch's book (Love's Legacy) sets the stage.
Romantic Rescue – I didn’t intend to turn Romantic Renovations into a series, but often I’m just the vessel and these stories do as they wish. I’m working to finish the final draft of this novel and hope to have it ready to release by fall.
Romantic Recon - Book three IS HAPPENING. Remember Bentley from Romantic Renovations? Well, of course, he has to have his own story. You're gonna be surprised who the love interest is. Hint: He showed up in Romantic Renovations also!!! That's all I'm saying!
Superhero Romance – I know this is NOTHING like what I usually write, however, I was talked into it by Alex Silver. I started it and just couldn’t stop. So, the first draft is done. Warning: this one’s gonna be significantly darker than most of my other novels.
Christmas Romance – I can’t say much about this one yet, but if it works out, I will be writing one of several "shared world" books by many authors about a Ski-Lodge in Colorado. So, looking forward to this project and collaborating with other authors.
Cinderella Story – I was inspired last year, while watching a Christmas Cinderella story how fun it’d be to do a gay/MM version of the story. It’s one of my favorite stories I’ve written thus far. It will come out this fall as well. Stay tuned for more information.
Coming Home Series – When I was eighteen I left Tennessee, where I grew up, for good. (Mostly because I was an out gay kid in the early 1990's). Looking back, I’ve missed a lot of things I normally wouldn't have...like getting to know the kids of my classmates, family, and friends from high school. Being with family and friends, although it sometimes drives me nuts, still holds a special place in my heart. So now, thirty some odd years later, I began writing about going home. This series is based in a small town just east of Nashville. It’s everything you’d want in a small town including extremely accepting and loving neighbors, great friends, and beautiful architecture. Stay tuned to learn more about these books as they progress through my editing process.
That’s all I’ve got going on for now.
