What's Happening With Me?
My husband and I are still living in the Phoenix area as the hubby has taken a full-time job with a local hospital. That doesn’t mean we won’t be taking a break. 120 degree (F) weather might undo me! Also, who lives in a 40-foot RV and NOT take it out for fun trips?
Anyway, here’s some of the insanity going on in my life at this time:
Winter MM Romance Cruise
So, I’m just a little bit off my rocker, as my granny used to say. But, I got this really hare-brained idea of how fun it would be 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...
Release of Final Chance Book – I fell head over heels in love with the orange groves in Mesa, AZ (Phoenix) and this story is the result of that love affair. It was a bear to write though. I’ve never argued with my characters before quite to the level I did on this book. However, I’m confident our compromise worked out for the best. May 1st is the release date!!!! OMG!!!
Big Bend Series – 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. You’ll see.
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.
Romantic Renovations Book Two – I didn’t intend to write a second book for Romantic Renovations, but often I’m just the vessel and these stories do as they wish. I’m working to finish the final draft on this novel and hope to have it ready to release by fall. FYI, there’s probably a book three ruminating in my brain as well!!
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.
That’s all I’ve got going on for now.
