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
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!
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. 😉
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!
Hey there, book nerds! Whew, it’s been a pretty thrilling/nervewracking week after finally releasing Strictly Business. I hope those of you who were eagerly anticipating how Tera and Eric’s continuing story would play out are enjoying reading it unfold just as much as I enjoyed writing it. Just a heads up, if you haven’t gotten your copy yet, there’s still time to get both it and Whip Smart on sale for only $0.99 on Amazon. And for those of you who tore through it and are already wondering where Tera and Eric’s story goes from here, I can confirm that Tangled Love is still on track to be released by the end of September. 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!
Happy New Year, book nerds! With 2017 circling the drain, let’s all hope that 2018 will be a year with many good things to come. But while it’s hard to deny that 2017 was a year of a lot of bad news (to put it mildly), I find it healthy to remember the good things that came out of it. I survived a semester of grad school, moved in with the Boyfriend and celebrated four years together with him, and, of course, became a published author.
Speaking of, I’m sure that all of you are still wondering where Strictly Business is. I feel like I should explain. When I published Whip Smart at the end of October, there were a lot of personal matter in my life–which have only just now begun to settle down–which prevented me from publishing it when I had originally planned. I was disappointed with the rocky start to my romance writing career and was determined to get the sequel out there as soon as possible. And as a result, I feel that I rushed it. When I canceled the pre-order a little over a week ago to fix a mistake in the manuscript, I read through it again to make sure I hadn’t missed any other mistakes, and couldn’t help but think of the things I’d scrapped or changed to make sure Strictly Business was published “on time”, as well as a few new and pretty damn good ideas that had come to me after I’d already started the publishing process on Amazon.

Hello again, everyone. Unfortunately, I’m writing this emergency post to share some bad news: due to unexpected technical difficulties, I’ve had to cancel the pre-order for Strictly Business for Dec. 27th. Long story short, I belatedly noticed a rather serious error with the “final” draft I’d uploaded to Amazon, and unfortunately wouldn’t have been able to upload the correct final draft before the deadline for the pre-order. All I can do is apologize to those of you who did pre-order the book and were looking forward to its release on the 27th. However, I will say that the book should be live on Amazon by Dec. 30th, and that both it and Whip Smart will be available for $0.99 for the first week of its release. Also, anyone currently subscribed to my mailing list will receive a free review copy of Strictly Business before release day.
Thank you so much again to all of you who have stuck by me and patiently waited for this next book. I know I’ve put you through the wringer, but I can’t tell you how grateful I am to all of you. Things have been tough for me in both my personal and writing life these past few months, but so far things are looking up for next year, and I look forward to continuing to share my writing and publishing adventures with you guys in 2018. Until then, Merry Christmas and happy reading!
