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.

The 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.
In 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.
Many 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
