Good news, everyone! At long, looooong last, High Risk is finally a reality! It’s been a wild and nerve-wracking few days for me getting ready for this book to go live, and after so long I can’t believe it’s finally here. I want to laugh and cry and maybe throw up just a little from the agony and ecstasy of waiting to see if people will love or hate my book.Continue reading
Hello, lovely readers! The release of Tangled Love is just two weeks away! Keep a lookout for some exclusive excerpts and a few other exciting things over the next week as the countdown to it going live begins. In the meantime, though, I’m excited to share its sexy brand-new cover with all of you!
Pretty, isn’t it? I actually originally had a whole set of covers made up for all of the planned books in the series around the time that Whip Smart came out, but after revamping the covers for the first two books, I figured that this one might be due for a makeover as well. Want to send my new book baby out into the wide world (literally, this time; planning my very first wide book release is kinda daunting) looking it’s hottest, after all. And be sure to keep an eye on this blog or on my newsletter in about a month or so, because you might just get to choose the cover for the next installment of The Loft…
Aaaaand of course, don’t forget, there’s still time to pre-order Tangled Love for $2.50 (that’s 50% off!) with the coupon code BNPLOFT50 at barnesandnoble.com. (Side note: if for whatever reason the product page says it’s not available for coupon codes beneath the book cover, don’t worry, it does actually work when you put the code in at checkout)
Just a quick aside before you peace out: I know that this blog has been a little bare-bones as far as author blogs go, mainly just a place to keep you updated on my book releases and such. And while I may not get to it right away, I’m hoping to spice things up a bit in the near future with some more entertaining content that’s actually worth hanging around for. There’s probably a few of you who already know this about me, but I actually used to run a small book review/movie review/writing/whatever blog. I say “used to” hesitantly and not without a mountain of regret, because while it’s technically on an extended hiatus and I’m still hoping to get back to blogging eventually, the sad truth is that between my day job, romance novel-ing, and grad school-ing, I simply haven’t had time for it.
One of these days I might actually learn to manage my time better, but until then, I think I might try posting the occasional snarky movie review or long-overdue Game of Thrones rant or whatever on here, and hey, maybe you’ll finally find some actual book reviews on my Goodreads author profile as well, because honestly the fact that it currently gives off the impression that I’m a writer who never reads or has opinions makes me a little uncomfortable.
I don’t know… maybe it’ll all just be a failed experiment. I am curious as to what kind of content all of you would like to see on this blog, though. Would you be interested in the occasional book review, or seeing me pick apart weird/bad movies while trying to be funny? Honestly, while I’d like to do a few more movie live-tweets of movies like I did for Darc a while back and Eyes Wide Shut even longer ago, live-tweeting to me is a bit of a drain (I sit down to watch a 1.5 hour movie and decide to start tweeting, but I have to pause the movie each time to concentrate and before I know it 3 hours have disappeared) and just writing a review after sitting through the whole film is more my style. So, let me know in the comments or feel free to reach out to me on Twitter or Facebook if you’d be into content like that!
As those of you who have seen my brand-new FAQ page already know, The Loft Series will be going wide at the end of next month. To celebrate, I present you with the shiny new covers for Whip Smart and Strictly Business! Well, mostly new; essentially, just the photos/models have been updated, but overall I think it’s a sexy improvement over the old covers.
In other news… well, I’m sure what you were all really hoping for was some news on High risk, right? Well, fear not, while there was another slight–if frustrating–delay this week, it should be live on Amazon by Monday. So, yay!
Hi, book nerds! Sorry that it’s been so long since you’ve heard from me. I feel bad about being away for so long, I haven’t even tweeted in forever. Unfortunately, things have still been a bit rough in my personal life over the past few months, not to mention the mild resurgence of depression and anxiety that I’ve been dealing with. There were times when I almost felt like giving up entirely, thinking that my Strictly Business rewrites would never get done. Eventually I had to put it down for a while to try and focus on my mental health, but I started brainstorming an idea I’d been casually working on for a while. It ended up being a good thing for me, helping me to clear my head and regain my confidence, as well as get a big head-start on my next book.
Thankfully, I’ve been doing a lot better recently, and I’m excited to say that Strictly Business is in its final editing stages and will be coming out on March 31st. For anyone who’s subscribed to my mailing list, ARC copies should be going out about a week before then. It’s been a long time coming and involved a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, but I’m hoping it’ll all be worth it in the end. I just wanted to thank all of you who have patiently waited through all these months and through all these frustrating updates.
But wait, there’s more! The book I started on while taking my break from Strictly Business, is also currently being edited, with a planned release date of April 14th. So stay tuned for updates on High Risk, book one of the Risky Business Duet.
Caleb Martin. Lost prince of business royalty. The young airline mogul with a reputation for dominance in both the boardroom and the bedroom. But before he was worth billions, he was my first love, and my brother’s best friend. We were supposed to grow old together… until a tragedy ripped us apart.
After six years I thought I’d finally moved on, but fate throws us together again. I try to tell myself he’s just another client, futilely resisting the temptation to mix business with pleasure. But there’s more than just our shared pain keeping us apart. Giving in to temptation could destroy everything we’ve both built in the last six years… but is Caleb worth the risk?
I’m pretty excited for this one, and was surprised by just how much fun it was to write it. I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit: a billionaire, brother’s best friend second chance romance set in New York, and with just a hint of suspense. It loosely ties into The Loft series, but can be read on its own. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks!
Hello again, fellow book nerds! Sorry for the lack of updates, but between my day job, family obligations, and working on the sequel to Whip Smart, I’ve been keeping pretty busy. But I’m excited to announce that book two, Strictly Business, will be released in just over a week on Dec. 22!
Hello, fellow book nerds!
Wow, it’s really hard to believe that the three-week countdown to the release date of Whip Smart is already here. For those of you who’ve been following me on Twitter, you may recall that this book has been in the works for a long time now, and even though it’s been a labor of love, the road leading up to this point has been full of ups and downs. There was a point when I didn’t even believe I would make it this far, due to all the self-doubt and external life problems holding me back from finishing my manuscript. But at long last, here I am, and I would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who encouraged me every step of the way, as well as all of you who’ve been patiently waiting for me to finally finish this damn book I keep talking about already.
So, in honor of this almost-milestone, let’s kick off this countdown to Whip Smart‘s October 22nd release with a reveal of it’s sweet new cover, shall we?
