Books, books, and more books!
Here we are in July again! And here in my house, it’s Christmas…
Whhhhattttt? No, we’re not getting out the tree or baking Christmas cookies. But I am writing a novella for a Christmas anthology so yes…I have been listening to Christmas music. Now, hang on! I make a playlist for almost every book I write; this one is no exception. I do have Christmas songs on this list, but there’s a lot of other music on the list, too. And I’m not being coy, this novella is currently untitled.
What else is going on?? Whew…PLENTY!!
I have a book coming out on August 20th!! I carried the plot for The Valentine Suite around in my head for almost 2 years before I got the book written. But, I’m so glad I did it. The story stayed in my heart, and the gorgeous setting for my brainstorming and for the story itself will always be special to me. You can pre-order your copy of The Valentine Suite now on Amazon, but it will be available on other retail sites, and it will be available in print.
I also have a book coming out on October 10th!! This one is a contemporary romance in a NINE book, multi-author series, featuring small town Blue Collar heros/heroines. I loved writing this book, although it was a bit of a challenge for me. I can’t wait to share it with you! Stay tuned for more news on that one!
In between those big projects, I plan to re-release Boone’s Girl, which some of you may have read in the back-to-school anthology, Aced. I am expanding the ending just a tiny bit to round out Bodhi and Will’s story, and then I’ll get it out there for anyone who has not read it, but would like to.
I’m writing the Christmas novella now. I have another fun rom-com idea for a Christmas story, and I plan to write Cold, a women’s fiction novel for this winter. (The rom-com idea might have to wait for 2022…because I’m also writing another fun rom-com/chick-lit sort of thing that I’m pretty excited about and would love to get in your hands ASAP!)
Other than that…Well, the travel life with JB is about to pick up and go crazy! Once the last weekend of July is here, I will feel like a visitor in my own home until November.
Hope you’re all having a safe & fun summer and doing lots of summer reading! Preferably by a pool…with a cocktail in hand ⬅️My plan for that last weekend in July!
