So Inked

Thank you to all the readers!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADear Readers,

You might remember earlier this year when there was a reader survey going around to vote on the Golden Ankh, reader’s choice awards for Ellora’s Cave books. I was lucky enough to have a book on the ballot, The Harder He Falls, So Inked #2. I was up against some very talented ladies, so I mostly forgot about the whole thing until a couple of people texted and messaged me from the Ellora’s Cave RomantiCon event up in Ohio. I’d won the Golden Ankh for Contemporary! All because of you guys.

B The Harder He FallsThank you so much for voting for me. This was such a special book to win the award with, too. I’m humbled and honored to be awarded the trophy. It got here a few days ago and I’ve just stared at it, not really believing I won it–because of you guys. This year has really blown me away by the incredible support you guys have shown me. Here’s to another awesome year!

A woman who doesn’t have time for love…

A hot night full of hotel-destroying sex was all Kellie wanted from her client-turned-sex god. Between family and work, there isn’t room for love, just hot, sweaty lust. An arrangement for mutual gratification is exactly what Kellie wants, but every kiss, each mind-blowing orgasm twines her heart around a man she cannot have.

A man building a new life…

Quinton’s assumptions about the So Inked shop owner are turned on their head after one session under her tattoo machine. Kellie’s not the vandal he’s looking for, but she’s the woman he wants. In his bed, on the desk or under the stars, he’ll take her any way he can get her. But Quin has secrets and someone is out to destroy him. Someone who has their sights set on Kellie now.

When to expect the next book?

B Hot Ink CoverDear Readers,

Last year I made a post about, When to expect the next book? It was in answer to a reader’s question wanting to know when to expect the next book in one series, while being unaware of another series. It was a good conversation and the resulting blog was very useful for not only readers, but myself! So I figured–why not do another one? The plan is for this to be a quarterly thing to update readers on what is coming out and stuff to be on the look-out for.

These are estimations only, not promised release dates unless otherwise stated. Or, ya know, when I list a date. I’ll do this by series, then do a recap at the bottom.

** Everything here is subject to change at the whim of publishers, me, the wind or other circumstances. **

B Taming the Alpha Book CoverThe Bayou Bound series is going strong! It kicked off last year with the Midnight Ink boxed set release. Picture Her Bound has been out as a stand-alone novella, which is newly out in print. Duty Bound out in ebook and print. This fall, my writer’s community put out a big anthology for charity titled Love Is… and it has a short story called Picture Her Loved. You guessed it. It’s another installment in the Jacques and Odalia romance. I only have one more short planned for them, but that won’t happen for a while. The next books to look forward to this year are the Hot Ink anthology from Fated Desires, which will have a long novella/short novel titled Bound Memories. This one departs from New Orleans and takes us to Baton Rouge for a rekindled lovers story. Then, in December I’ll have another novella out in the Taming the Alpha boxed set called Bound & Tamed, about two intellectual bad-asses. Both of these sets have some fantastic authors participating. I’m super excited about this! Next year, look for more news about a full-length novel titled Bound by Her. This will feature Remy, who had a brief appearance in Duty Bound and Bound Memories. I think readers will really like him.

RomanceIn August my first book from Random House’s Loveswept line released. Committed is part of my Drug of Desire series. It’s a BDSM-meets-suspense book that I am very excited about. Recently, I got to announce that Loveswept did, in fact, contract another book in that series called Proposition. It is set to be out in the spring of 2015, and is currently up for pre-order.

I just got to announce a new, mass market deal with Kensington Books for a romantic suspense series that I describe as the love-child between The Fast and The Furious and Burn Notice. I’m deep into the first book now, but that’s not set to release until late 2015 or 2016.

Also, I’ll be part of the For the Love of a Soldier anthology coming out from Cleis Press this December.

Now for the hard part of this post.

B For The Love of a SoldierMany people are aware of the increasing issues one of my publishers is having. Due to uncertainty, I can no longer give readers an estimate on when to expect books in the So Inked or Good Guys Wear Black series. It pains me to say this, but it’s the facts. Things could very well even out and be back on track in a few months, or not. I’m as in the dark about the future as anyone. My deepest apologies to the readers looking forward to those remaining three books. When I know something, I’ll update the website, but until then I’m not going to speculate.

That’s everything I can tell you about. There’s always stuff in the background or in the works that I can’t talk about, but hopefully soon.

Here’s a cheat-list of the expected schedule, including the rest of this year’s releases:

  • Hot Ink anthology! Contains Bound Memories – November 2014
  • Taming the Alpha boxed set, contains Bound & Tamed novella – December 2014
  • For the Love of a Soldier – December 2014
  • Bound by Her, Bayou Bound – 2015
  • Drug of Desire: Proposition – Spring 2015
  • Drive – Late 2015/2016

** Everything here is subject to change at the whim of publishers, me, the wind or other circumstances. **

The So Inked books are by far the ones that get this question the most. Under His SkinThe Harder He Falls and His Marriage Bargain are currently available. His Marriage Bargain is not on Amazon or Barnes & Noble–yet. It’s coming! Now, the last two books in the series, More Than He Can Handle and His Little Fighter have been shuffled around as far as due dates. I will not speculate on a release date for those, except to say that they will not release until 2015 at the earliest.

hottango_msrThe Good Guys Wear Black series is hot and underway! Hot Tango released in January, which was fantastic. We are currently in the editing stages on Line of Duty–and there’s a cover! I will be sharing it soon, but it’s dreamy, yummy goodness. The final book in the trilogy will be a 2015 release, which kind of stinks because it’s going to be so super awesome. I’ve really enjoyed writing these. Both Hot Tango and Line of Duty have tugged on the heart strings. It’s been a very fun change of pace to write married, romantic suspense stories.

duty-e-reader-copyThe Bayou Bound books kicked off in November with the Midnight Ink boxed set release. Picture Her Bound is out as a stand-alone novella, which is newly out in print. Duty Bound now out in ebook, and I’m putting the final touches on the print edition! I’ll have these at Author’s After Dark this fall in Charlotte. For those who have read Picture Her Bound, this book follows Mathieu, Odalia’s former patrol partner. I have plans to do a full series in this “world”. Also! As bonus content, there will be a Jacques and Odalia short story in Duty Bound. Also, and this is the first I’ve said of this, I have a short story called Picture Her Loved that will be part of a charity anthology releasing August 4th titled Love is… You guessed it. It’s another installment in the Jacques and Odalia romance. I only have one more short planned for them, but that won’t happen for a while. After that, the next story is a long novella that will be out as part of an anthology this fall. The next full-length novel is partially written and underway, but I’m going to hold off naming a release date.

RomanceThis August my first book from Random House’s Loveswept line will release. Committed is part of my Drug of Desire series. It’s a BDSM-meets-suspense book that I am very excited about. The original release date was July, but it’s been moved back to August 12th. It is currently up for pre-order and on NetGalley for reviewers. You do not want to miss this book! Especially if you are a fan of the Bayou Bound series. This will incorporate many of the same elements of story seen there.

There are also some other projects in the works for the later part of the year, but they aren’t announced yet. So I shall keep those close to the vest. :)

That’s everything I can tell you about. There’s always stuff in the background or in the works that I can’t talk about, but hopefully soon. Ya know, if everything pans out.

ForTheLoveOfASoldier_14Here’s a cheat-list of the expected schedule, including the rest of this year’s releases:

  • Committed (Drug of Desire) – August 2014
  • Love Is… – August 2014
  • For the Love of a Soldier – November 2014
  • Hot Ink anthology! Will contain a new Bayou Bound novella – November 2014
  • Line of Duty (Good Guys Wear Back #2) – Winter 2014
  • Shotgun Wedding (Good Guys Wear Black #3) – 2015
  • More Than He Can Handle (So Inked #4)
  • His Little Fighter (So Inked #5)

And that’s enough to make me want to go back to bed!!!!

The Fast Drafting Author

Dear Readers,

A couple of things!

First, like the new layout?

Second, winners will be announced for the Kinky Girl Take Over and BDSM Bookapalooza very soon. There were a LOT of giveaways to tally up.

Now, for some awesome news! His Marriage Bargain is now up on All Romance eBooks as well as the Ellora’s Cave site. So, if you like the independent retailer–you can make your purchases there! If Amazon and Barnes & Noble are your sites, they’re coming. Soon. I’m watching and waiting right there with you.

Lastly, I figured why not vlog my current Fast Drafting? I’ve got two books that must be done before I move, so it’s making for some early days.

His Marriage Bargain is out in the wild!

hismarriagebargain_msr(1)Hello Dear Readers and welcome to release day!

It’s always an exciting day when a new book is out there, but for me the So Inked books are special. They’re my first series, my first real success and I feel like these women are my friends. Today I get to share with you the story of a woman who takes the hits and keeps on going. Autumn is my sleeper hero. You might not have thought much of her in the last two books–but I think you’ll get her this time around.

You can buy the book at Ellora’s Cave. It will be up on all major retail sites soon. Check out the blog, Facebook or Twitter for updates!

A woman who loves too much…

When Autumn’s best friend proposes a pretend marriage, the chance to make all the kisses she’s imagined real is too much for her to pass up. She seduces him with her body and enjoys pushing his boundaries and fulfilling their sexual fantasies—but her heart isn’t supposed to be part of the bargain.

A man about to take his last breath…

Sammi has just weeks left to live out his dying wish—the white picket fence, the house and the wife. If Autumn is the last woman he gets to taste he’ll die a lucky man. Her body, her heart—everything about her calls to him. But love isn’t supposed to be in the plans.

In the crucible of passion, these two lovers will find out what they’re really made from, and just how long I DO lasts.

The So Inked books are by far the ones that get this question the most. Under His Skin and The Harder He Falls are currently available everywhere ebooks are sold. The third book, His Marriage Bargain, is in the heavy-duty stage of edits. This means–the release date is soon to be set! Yes! Very soon we will be diving back into the luscious world of the So Inked girls and their special brand of sexy fun. Now, the last two books in the series, More Than He Can Handle and His Little Fighter have been shuffled around as far as due dates. I will not speculate on a release date for those, except to say that they might be 2015 books.

hottango_msrThe Good Guys Wear Black series is hot and underway! Hot Tango released in January, which was fantastic. The second book, Line of Duty, is on deck for edits, so I would expect a fall to winter release of this year for that book. The final book in the trilogy will be a 2015 release, which kind of stinks because it’s going to be so super awesome. I’ve really enjoyed writing these. Both Hot Tango and Line of Duty have tugged on the heart strings.

I have plans to do a full series in this “world”. Also! As bonus content, there will be a Jacques and Odalia short story in Duty Bound. I’m heading into the plotting stages for the third book in the series, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Possibly the only shift to my current release schedule is the book I will have out with Random House’s Loveswept line, Committed. This is currently a single title, BDSM-meets-suspense book that I am very excited about. The origional release date was July, but it’s being moved back to August. It is currently up for pre-order. You do not want to miss this book! Especially if you are a fan of the Bayou Bound series. This will incorporate many of the same elements of story seen there.

I’m currently working on a super, duper seekrit project that if all goes well, will release in the newly opened July slot. I’m keeping my lips sealed until things are a little better planned, but this is going to be a lot of fun.

RomanceThere are also some other projects in the works for the later part of the year, but they aren’t announced yet. So I shall keep those close to the vest. :)

Cover Reveal Day

hismarriagebargain_msr(1)So Inked LogoDear Readers,

I owe you an apology.

I have been seriously remiss about posting this what with some other life crazy going on.

But I’m taking care of that–today!

Another So Inked cover!!!

His Marriage Bargain is the third installment of the So Inked series, all about hot tattoo artists and the men willing to love them.

For those of you who have been tuned into the series, you might already know this, but book three is Autumn’s book.

I’m so excited about this book, the cover, everything to do with it!

From what I have heard, the book will be out this summer. I simply cannot wait for it to be out in the wild, for everyone to enjoy and love as much as I’ve loved these characters.

It was a good conversation and the resulting blog was very useful for not only readers, but myself! So I figured–why not do another one?

** Everything here is subject to change at the whim of publishers, me, the wind or other circumstances. **

The So Inked books are by far the ones that get this question the most. Under His Skin and The Harder He Falls are currently available everywhere ebooks are sold. The third book, His Marriage Bargain, was handed off to my editor in November, right on target. My best estimation on when to expect book three would be sometime this summer 2014. The remaining two books, More than He Can Handle and His Little Fighter, will each be written in 2014 and 2015 respectively. For me, it’s crazy to be over the half-way point of the series.

hottango_msrThe Good Guys Wear Black books are still relatively unknown to people, but soon, very soon, you will know the wonder that is Hot Tango. I’m estimating an early 2014 release for Hot Tango. The second book, Line of Duty, is written and also turned in. I would expect both books to be out this year. The final book in this trilogy will be a 2015 release, which kind of stinks because it’s going to be so super awesome. I’ve really enjoyed writing these. Both Hot Tango and Line of Duty have tugged on the heart strings.

MidnightInk72The Bayou Bound books kicked off in November with the Midnight Ink boxed set release. Picture Her Bound will be out as a stand-alone novella in February. I’m hoping to follow it up fairly soon after with another installment, a full-length novel titled Duty Bound. For those who have read Picture Her Bound, this book follows Mathieu, Odalia’s former patrol partner. I have plans to do a full series in this “world”. Several of the books are planned out, it’s just a matter of fitting them into my schedule!

A few weeks ago I got to finally announce that I’d signed a contract with Loveswept to do a book for them. Committed is a single-title right now, but let’s be honest. I fully intend to write a follow-up. For now, the Drug of Desire series is just the one book, with a projected release month of July.

Tales from the Secret Realms is a loose series that kicked off this holiday season with How Zombies Stole Christmas. This series is a shared world and will be skipping all over the globe to visit magical havens for modern day fae and wondrous creatures. I have some projects for these worlds, but the only one I’m committing to in 2014 is a Halloween book. The rest depend on scheduling!

I’m hoping that through 2014 I’ll also be able to do some short stories in the line of Once Upon a Time in Mukdahan and Kinky Bells, both of which are included in anthologies. There was such a great response to writing a hero with a prosthetic limb, I want to do more of these! I also have plans to re-release at least one short story and write a few more as stand-alones or tie-in’s to current series to poke at supporting characters.

picture-her-boundThat’s everything I can tell you about. There’s always stuff in the background or in the works that I can’t talk about, but hopefully soon. Ya know, if everything pans out.
