All your burning, aching, smoldering questions answered here.
Q: “Do your books need to be read in a certain order?”
A: Each book within The Loft series, Risky Business Duet, and the upcoming Playing Games Trilogy should be read according to publication/numerical order. The Loft starts with Whip Smart, and Risky Business begins with High Risk. I’ll be posting a suggested reading order/timeline in the near future (see next question).
Q: “Do all your books/series exist in the same universe?”
A: They do! At least, all the ones that I’ve published so far or that I’m planning on publishing in the near future. I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing, but I’m a big fan of shared universes. Blame Marvel, I guess. Fortunately, each series works as its own standalone story; for example, you don’t need to read The Loft books to understand the Risky Business books and vice versa. However, as they share some characters and even a few significant events, from my biased perspective they are best enjoyed as a whole. As long as you follow the numerical order of each individual series you won’t get lost, though the publication order of my books doesn’t necessarily match up with the timeline of events across the multiple series. I’ll be posting a suggested reading order/book timeline soon, likely after the publication of High Risk (Risky Business #1) in January.
Q: “Will your books be available on other retailers besides Amazon (Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Google Play, etc.)?”
A: Why, I’m glad you asked! As a matter of fact, Whip Smart and Strictly Business just went wide at the beginning of August. You can now find them online at Barnes and Noble, Apple Books, Kobo, and several others, and will likely be available from Google Play in the near future. All future books in the series – as well as the Risky Business Duet and several other books I have lined up for this year – will be published wide as well.
Q: “Will your books be available as audiobooks?”
A: Working on it! As of this update (1/9/2020), work has just begun on the audio version of Whip Smart. The Loft audiobooks will be available exclusively through Audible, Amazon, and iTunes, with Whip Smart expected to be released in mid-March, and Strictly Business shortly after that. I’m also currently working with a narrator to bring High Risk to audio later in the spring.
Q: “How many books will there be in The Loft series?”
A: I have five books total planned for the series. Book three (as of 1/9/2020) will be out in late January and book four has a planned late Feb./early March release, with the fifth and final book set to be released in the summer. And don’t worry, books two through four each have their own satisfying HFN endings; no more evil cliffhangers for Eric and Tera!
Q: “Is there a chance we’ll get any stories from The Loft club outside of the main series/Tera and Eric’s story?”
Q: “Will we be seeing more of Kiera and Caleb after the Risky Business Duet?”
Q: “Will any of the side characters from The Loft or Risky Business be getting their own books?”
A: Oh, just you wait. Keep an eye out for the first book of the Playing Games Trilogy this spring/summer, featuring Megan McGinnis, Tera’s friend and roommate who we first meet in Whip Smart. I’m also planning a book or possibly even a series for Kiera’s best friend Ashlyn from High Risk, though that likely won’t come out until next year. I’ve also been toying around with the idea of a romantic suspense centering around two characters first seen in a yet-to-be-released book, but that one’s a bit more up-in-the-air.
