On Deck

I did it! Branwyn Blood book 1 is drafted and being reviewed by betas this month. PHEW. Next month, it goes to edit, and soon after that, advanced readers. My new Fae series will finally be in reader hands!

I'm so excited for you to meet the Celtic crew hiding out in Texas. It turned out to be quite a tense story with dark twists, shocking reveals, and building mystery.

As we slowly ease out of summer and enjoy a few more days of "deck" weather and I prepare this book to introduce Branwyn to your ereader and/or bookshelf, I've got a few other things "on deck." One is an event happening next summer I hope you'll join me at. And I'm working on a few new stories...

I'm currently writing:

  • Branwyn Blood book 2, so you won't have to wait long for more

  • A HDPU spinoff series with co-author, LeAnn Mason (a bounty-hunter urban fantasy with a spicy vamp you've met before)

  • A quirky, comedic shifter paranormal romance with co-author LeAnn Mason that'll release on Kindle VELLA (with a downtrodden B Crew you're going to want to root for).

More on those coming! ;)

In my downtime, I've started reading Fourth Wing (caved to the hype) and catching up on other TBR stockpiles, still keeping just ahead of my Goodreads 2023 goal. What are you reading?

I took advantage of Colorado's Palisade peach season to make a pie to eat while reading Fourth Wing (left); wrapped up book 1 of the branwyn Blood series (middle); and received a lovely gift of fox art for my bookshelves (right).
