What's Happening With Me?
Sometimes the World Spins Fast!
Since my last newsletter, the hubby accepted a job as a nurse in Washington State. Back to where Aiden Inspired is set... which is great, since I think (don't hold me to this), there might be another Transitions (Aiden, Suzie, and Bobby) Book coming out.
Even as I write this, we are driving through Utah on our way north. To be honest, I'm so excited to get out of the 120-degree heat!
I'm on the verge of finishing the re-edits of Suzie Empowered and she will be re-released this month under my new pen name, DB Allwood. I know, not very creative but hey, it will at least distinguish this male/female romance from my normal male/male novels.
Here's some other things I'm doing:
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! (Princess Cruises requires all passengers to show proof of vaccination before boarding).
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, books 1 and 2 are available now and you can pre-order book three now. The ghost story gathers momentum as the series goes on, but Flex and Mitch's book (Love's Legacy) sets the stage.
Suzie Empowered - After MUCH demand, Suzie Empowered is going to be re-released this month. This is the only male/female romance I've written and now that I have access to other sources such as Barnes and Noble, Google, Apple, and KOBO, I'm going to bring this lovely story back out under a different pen name, DB Allwood.
Romantic Renovations - Romantic Renovations is being re-released this month (July) in honor of the two books that are being added to this series. I'll announce when both this book and Suzie Empowered are available.
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!
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.
