Honestly…I haven’t been slacking off. These last few months have been insane for good and bad reasons, and I’m working on some amazing surprises for you.
For anyone who knows me personally, they can attest to some of the great difficulty I’ve had these last few months. My teen tested and exerted most of my patience and sanity, which made it very difficult to concentrate on anything. I’ve had to shift my writing schedule around and sadly withdrew two proposals. I honestly feel terrible about it, but there’s only so much a gal can do.
I then found myself confronted with an awful situation, and one that brought some very painful memories. We all make choices in life that we regret–which is normal, but I would never, ever lie about being physically abused. And to think I was accused of the very notion cut me deeply. Do people really lie about that kind of shit? All I know, is I would never fabricate such experience. I spent years in therapy, and I finally accepted, forgave, and moved forward. It’s one of the reasons why I started writing. Although, what I wrote back then for therapy was mostly dark poetry. Honestly, people can think what they want, but I know the truth, and so does the universe. My husband and daughters fully support me, and love me all the same.
Anyhoo…enough of the awful news. How about some awesome things?
My blog Romance Author at Large is turning a year-old this September. Yay, right? Not just yet. Here’s the big news. I’m celebrating with a month-long mass feature of authors, and there’s going to be giveaways too. Watch this space and that one for more news on the special event.
In addition to that, my review and promotions site Hawt Reads & Dirty Talk is doing extremely well, and is now open to cover ads. With a subscription base of 2. 4k and constantly growing, the decision seemed to be a natural one.
I’m hoping to re-release Hardened Desire later this month, or early on in September. All the drama slowed things down, but it will happen, I promise you.
I’m also working on two new stories. I’ve got a highlander novella in the works right now; I need to turn in by Halloween, and I think you’ll really love it. The other project is a brand new contemporary serialized book. Watch for more news on Boardroom Affairs. The first installment The Dare is turning out to be a mighty fun book. This sexy book is going to be fast-paced, kinky, and full of sexual fantasies gone wild.
Well, that’s it for now. I can’t giveaway all my secrets. Thank you for supporting me and my books. Love y’all to bits!
