Crazy Beginnings

2017 is off and running. You may not be aware, but I’ve been in a dispute with one of my publishers. I’m so pleased to say it’s been resolved. I now own the rights to my Master’s Touch series once again. It’s such a huge relief to have that settled. I’m considering self-publishing those three or possibly re-releasing them with the publisher of the Desired Discipline and Bound for Justice series. I’ll make a decision soon and get them back on the market. I promise.

During the holidays, my brother went through a pretty rough patch. We feared we were going to lose him. I was more than a little pissed that 2016 was going to claim another sibling before we rang in the new year. Today, he’s doing better. We’re not out of the woods, but he’s at home and that’s a huge plus.

I’m excited about 2017. Right now I’m working on the fourth book in the Bound for Justice series, Against the Tide. It’s about a Navy Seal sniper turned NBIA agent. You first meet him in Against the Grain which comes out in March. I’ll get the specific information out as we draw closer.

Hope the new year is treating you well.

After my publisher accepted Bondage Anniversary, I started discussing the possibility of writing a series with my editor. She asked me to submit a proposal and she would let me know. To my absolute astonishment they not only liked the five books I had submitted, but asked me if I thought I could write a sixth. After I picked myself up off the ground, I hastily agreed.

The first two were no problem and the characters in book three were waking me up at night wanting me to hurry up and write their story.  I do so love, James and Amanda! But as their story comes to end, I started worrying because the next couple had been silent. They haven’t invaded my showers (one of the best places to think through plot challenges) or my dreams.

Finally, while driving to the store it hit me–I was looking to the wrong character for help. Ted had no intentions of speaking to me. He isn’t looking for love. It’s Meri who is the force driving this relationship. She is such a schemer and poor Ted doesn’t know what’s about to hit him…
