What's my current project?

Not many of you are aware that I've had a pretty crazy year. Leading up to and after the birth of my first child, I was working on the manuscripts for Dark Deceit and Dark Desire for my publisher, Momentum. I was even working while still at the hospital recovering from a C-section. In the weeks that followed, I was churning out guest posts for the release of both titles (only a couple of months separating them) as well as going through copy edits and the proofreading process for both titles. I also had to get a handle on breastfeeding, getting very little sleep and learning how to be a mum.

To say that it was stressful was an understatement. 

And now a year has gone by. And in that year I've written Dark Devotion - book three in the Dark Series - completed re-edits for Half Blood, Half Truths and Half Life and written another book in a completely different genre. I've also had people asking when the fifth book in the Helheim series will be done. 

As you can see, I've been pretty busy. 

I need a break. I'm not an inexhaustible machine that can churn out books every few weeks or months. For the six months preceding the release of Dark Devotion, I'll be gearing down and pulling back from my 'authoring duties'.

I'll be taking some time for my self, to enjoy reading a book that I don't have to edit or proofread, to play with my daughter without feeling guilty that I have to write instead. 

 So, what's my current project? 

Recharging my creative batteries.

The Dark Series has taken it out of me creatively. I need to decompress and farewell my characters, and make some room in my life for new ideas and new characters that need their story told. Yes, Omega will be written, but it won't be ready until later 2016. I'm sorry, you're just going to have to wait a little longer. If you'd like to be kept in the loop, you can sign up for my newsletter on my website, or click 'follow' on my Amazon profile to make sure you know when a new title is released. 

I thank you for your continued support, and I hope that you keep coming back to my blog. I will be posting reviews as I finish books in my huge TBR pile as well as featuring some book releases.

New release: "More than Friends" by Brandi Kennedy

Michael Kingsley is a broken man. How could he not be, when the wife he thought he’d love forever, the one he thought would love him forever, just picked up and left him with no explanation?

It took him a while, but he’s finally putting his life back together. He’s doing his job, he’s paying his bills – he’s even getting back into his old hobbies. He’s finally doing alright again … mostly. And maybe he does drink too much, but at least he’s finally stopped sleeping around. Now he’s settled on one woman, a curvaceous and flirtatious bartender who never misses an opportunity to warm his bed.

But when Michael’s mother ends up in the hospital, it’s his best friend Renee who stays by his side, and he begins to see her in a whole new way. When they take a step beyond the boundaries of friendship that cannot be undone, what will happen to their relationship?

Will they find something more, something neither of them even realized was there? Or will the fear of changing – and maybe losing – their friendship, be the thing that ends it all?


Introduce yourself to Michael and the rest of the Kingsley family today; books 1-4 are available wherever books are sold. For direct purchase links to each book on each of the various markets, please see the Kingsley Series page.

New Release: "Friction" by Sawyer Bennett


Friction (A Legal Affairs Novel)
by Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: October 27, 2015


At the powerhouse law firm of Knight & Payne, winning comes first and ethics a distant second. Leary Michaels uses her female charms to daze opponents, and it’s always worked well—until now. On her most personal case yet, she finds herself going up against a defense attorney just as skilled, shameless, and seductive as she is.

Reeve Holloway has never met a woman as sure of her own sexuality, or as ruthless in wielding it, as Leary is. But he won’t be toyed with. What Leary starts, he’ll finish—in the courtroom, the bedroom, or any-damn-place he wants. The sex is uninhibited, electrifying, and absolutely against the rules. Reeve’s job is to ruin Leary’s case…even if it destroys her in the process and costs him the woman he’s come to love.
