Hello once again, my lovely readers. I know it’s been a long time since you last heard from me, and if I had to guess what your most burning questions for me are (that is, assuming you remember me), I’d have to guess 1) “Where’s High Risk“? 2)”Are you ever going o get back to The Loft”? and 3) “Are you… okay, Siena? Like, do you need to talk about anything?” And my answers to those would be: 1)It’s complicated, but I promise it’s still coming; 2) Yes, more on that in a bit; and 3) It’s… complicated.Continue reading
Greetings once again, dearest readers. First off, I wanted to apologize for ghosting you all like that, particularly after I’d said about two weeks ago that High Risk would be available in a matter of days after it unfortunately had to be delayed again. I’m sure a few of you noticed my Twitter thread on the subject yesterday:
Sadly, things have been very hectic and stressful for me, starting around the time of the family death I mentioned a few weeks back and partially relating to that. I’m sorry that I can’t go into more detail, but I hope you can all understand my desire to keep a lot of things in my personal life separate from my author life. Emotionally, things are getting better after a lot of recent ups and downs; the loss of one of my close family members was definitely one of those low points but things are looking up. Unfortunately, that death happened to coincide with a lot of other things being dropped into my lap all at once, and yet again I found myself in the position of having to put off a book release to take care of other things.
I can’t express how guilty I feel and how sad and frustrated it makes me to have done this more than once at this point. But ultimately in most cases it felt like the best choice to put it off until I could devote the proper time and energy to that new release, and I do believe I made the right call this time. I am still confident that 2019 (or at least the latter half of it) will be “my year” as an author; the sequel to High Risk is still on track to come out in late July, book three of The Loft series will finally be out in August, and I have big plans for both book four and something new this fall.
As for High Risk itself, you can all breathe a huge sigh of relief along with me, because it’ll be here next week!
Oh! And before you go, be sure to check out the Frequently Asked Questions page I just added to the site. I’ll be updating it with more relevant info in the coming months as my next few books are released.
As always, thank you guys for continuing to support me. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Stay classy, and happy reading. 😉
Hi, everyone. I know it’s been a long (and frustrating) journey to finally putting this book out there into the world. And just when I thought I’d finally managed to stick the landing with this release… well, it just didn’t go as planned. I mentioned before that due to a death in the family, the release had to be postponed. And at first, things looked like they were getting back on track after that, at least as far as the book release went.
But unfortunately, more things came up that I’d prefer not to get into here. And as a result, the pre-order had to be cancelled, since I wasn’t confident that I could upload the final manuscript in time. I’m very sorry to everyone who had already ordered the book. However, it will still be live on Amazon by the end of this weekend, and will be available for $0.99 for the next several weeks. Book two of the duology is also on track to be released toward the end of July, so at least there won’t be yet another huge chasm of time between releases.
Again, thank you all so much for being so patient while I handle everything that’s been going on in my life. I know it’s been a bumpy ride, between family issues, career struggles outside of writing, and dealing with my mental health. But I’m really hoping that 2019 will end up being the year that I truly find my footing as an author. I still have a lot of fun stuff in store for the rest of this year.
Hello, all. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but due to a death in the family, I’m postponing the release date until June 7th. I know May 24th was still a little ways off and there’s a chance I can have it ready for publication in time, but I made the tough call that it would be for the best to move the release date, so I could focus on family matters for the time being, as well as not force myself to rush things and mess something up with the release.
High Risk will still be available for pre-order until June 7th, and anyone who has already ordered the book will be getting it on that day. (Unfortunately, changing the date does mean that I won’t be able to set up any future books for pre-order on Amazon for another year.)
Thank you all for being so patient. Looking forward to bringing you all some happier news next time. I hope you understand if I’m a little quiet (well, quieter than I already am most days) on Twitter for the next week or so.
Back from the dead, assholes!
All joking aside, I apologize once again for dropping off the face of the Earth for so long, especially since those of you who might’ve been looking forward to the release of High Risk are probably wondering where it is. I know that I’ve gone into detail before about why it’s taken me so long to finally put out a book that I’ve been promising for months and months, and to put it bluntly, a large part of why this release has taken me so long is that depression and anxiety have been kicking my ass especially hard in recent times. Trying to juggle a regular job, graduate school, family obligations, and other writing interests outside of romance with maintaining my romance pen name is a struggle that I often doubt I’ll ever fully get the hang of. And with my mental health
Merry Almost Christmas, my lovely readers! I know, I know, you’re all still waiting for High Risk to finally come out. Unfortunately, the release date had to be pushed back until January 28th, after the insanity of the holiday season. (I’ve also updated my previous blog post to reflect
Long time no see, my lovelies! I ‘m very sorry for the unscheduled hiatus. For those of you who don’t know (which is probably most… I don’t think I’ve actually mentioned it in my blog before), I recently went back to grad school. Long story short, this past semester I went from being a part-time student to adding a few more courses onto my workload to hopefully earn my degree faster. It was a tough call, given both the handful of other issues I’ve been dealing with in my personal life in the past year or so, and how difficult it’s been to find the right balance between going to school and building my career as an author. But I’m hoping that in the end it’ll all work out for the best. I want to thank you all for your patience, since I know this book and the next installment of The Loft have been a long time coming, and your continuing support during this difficult time in my life means a lot to me.
However, that does not mean that I’ve forgotten about my writing, far from it! While I was initially disappointed that I wasn’t able to meet my initial goal of having High Risk published in September, I am happy to announce that I now have an official release date: January 28th!
