I am thrilled to say that this year I planned ahead. Not only did I plan (which I am very good at), but I also acted (which can be hit and miss). And Voila, we have "Marrying Her. The Keeping Her Christmas Wedding." Yay!
By now, most of you have read the book, but for the select few who are waiting for a brief moment of quiet time I will refrain from giving anything away.
BUT THIS IS HARD. I want to talk about this book, not like a writer, but like a reader who had a great time in a story and has no one in which to say, "hey did you see that part where..." It's like being in the car with a long drive ahead when my cousin Ariel says something crazy like: "I still need to watch the last season of Game Of Thrones." And I can not express my outrage about John Snow on that long, loooong drive except to give her a heartfelt "Oh, yeah, you do!"
What in the world could you possibly be waiting for?
Anyway, I digress.
The point is Marrying Her was fun to write, and in a time where I was uncertain if I could write anything, let alone a Holiday book (something that made me feel good), writing this story was a blessing in many ways. So thank you to my readers who asked for more Lionsgate, and specifically another dose of Demon and Clytie. And for all of you who sent me your prayers and blessings at the passing of my Mother, especially for those who shared a little of their own sad stories, this one is definitely for you. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I had writing it.
On another note. The Alpha Prime Commander, which I thought was going to go really dark, didn't. It was supposed to be a dark erotica but apparently I can't help myself so its turned into more of a sci fi adventure with a sprinkling of wry humor and alpha male bonding. Plus the heroine is kick ass. Not to say the sex isn't hot, it is. But it's not dark, so forgive my false advertising. Like the opening scene from At One's Pleasure, and the bar scene from Keeping Her, I wrote the scene where Jackson confronted Lo Cordan and was introduced to Lena years ago. This story evolved from that. Like Marrying Her it wrote itself, gave me much needed out of my head time and went quicker than anticipated. It's already back from the editor and will be releasing this month, rather than in November.
My schedule has not changed, so for release dates check out my last blog.
I have been writing so much my plans for my website have taken a back burner. I still intend to expand the series pages with character histories and a few other things so keep checking back. Plus excerpts from my upcoming books will be up soon as well.
I am off to re-read The Dragon Mage Series. I am about to embark on an adventure with Furee and Riva I have been looking forward to since I met them in Web of Bones. I just need to get back into the dragon mind set first.
