2016 is going to be quite the year for me. Last year's hard work will pay off (hopefully!) with 3 releases this year. Whirlwind Romance is just around the corner - Feb 1, 2016 boldstrokesbooks.com release date and Feb 16, 2016 everywhere else. This is a quick, fun story about storm chasing, trust, and making a relationship work. The entire book isn't about chasing - only the first 1/2 is so it's not too overbearing. I've had 2 proofreaders reach out to me and tell me how much they enjoyed the story. I'm excited to see how it is received! If you do pick it up or download it, I would love, LOVE a review on Amazon, or if you have your own review website, a shout out would be great. When writers get constructive criticism, we do listen and make adjustments if necessary.
Just Say Yes is my first attempt at a novella and it's due out in July. I struggled with it because novellas are approximately 25K words whereas novels are approximately 70K. I have to make a believable story in a fraction of the time.
My favorite book, Taste, will be out in October - just in time for PTown. I will beg Carsen Taite to put me on as many readings and panels that she can so that I can introduce as much of my work as I can.
I am starting book #4 which takes place in Ireland and some in Texas. I'm still working on the details and hope to have a proposal to Sandy by February. I'm not sure what direction the story will go in, but I'm anxious to find out. I'm still molding the characters and they aren't 100% there yet in my mind, so I might actually have to create an outline. GASP! Well, a character one at least.
So, to sum it up, have a great year, wish me the same, and if you have time to read my books, please do. If you don't want to put yourself out there and leave a review, please just send me an email and let me know your thoughts. Cheers to a fantastic 2016!
