Writing

I don’t even know what this is.

I hate working on second drafts. Even when I manage to write books that nail the story arc on the first try (rare), there still manages to be a lot of…WTFery to clean up. What does this even mean? What the hell are they doing? (These are NOT acrobats, I assure you.) Forehead-furrowing passages like Read more of this post »



Glut.

I’m in a glut. I’m working on four projects at different stages at once. This happens every so often. It’s sort of a perfect storm. A mass of trails converging. A bottleneck of epic proportions. By Thursday, the storm will let up and I’ll be twiddling my thumbs a lot more, but as of right Read more of this post »



I kinda know what I’m doing. (Subtitle: 2015 releases)

Things have fallen into place enough that I have a general idea of what’s releasing when, especially for Q1 and Q2 2015. This is how things stand right now. February 2: the Emerald Springs Legacy boxed set releases. That’s for you contemporary/sexy small town romance lovers. If you like family sagas, you’ll love this series. Read more of this post »



What to expect from me in 2015.

I’m a day early for my end-of-year projections, but I figured you wouldn’t mind. I’ll keep this puppy short and sweet because it’s cold here on the Front Range and my bum wrist is being a whiny little bitch. This post is for the readers wondering what series they’ll be seeing more of and what Read more of this post »



The Romance Hive Mind

So, I’m making my way through the Vikings Unleashed boxed set reading the other contributions (and getting distracted because OH, LOOK, THIS IS A SERIES LET ME GO READ EVERY OTHER BOOK IN THE SERIES BEFORE I CONTINUE), and last week I had a mega “derp” moment. I read Kate Pearce’s Triad Series, and I Read more of this post »



Not. Gonna. Do it.

NaNoWriMo is creeping up, and this is about the time of year I start thinking about what project I’m going to fast-draft come November. In 2012, I wrote Calculated Exposure and wrote half of what became Teaching the Cowboy. Last year, I started Following Fabian (and got waylaid because of other commitments). This year, though…I’m Read more of this post »



The Viking Queen’s Men is now on Goodreads

Add some lusty Vikings to your TBR list. Oh! By the way, if you’re subscribed to my PNR new release alerts, you might be one of five lucky people who’ll get an early copy of The Viking Queen’s Men next week. My newsletter is going out on Monday, so make sure you’re subscribed.



SKOL and stuff.

It’s in! Viking Thing is out of my hands and now I can obsess about other things for a while. ICYMI: It’ll be out the first week of October in a boxed set I’ll tell you more about later. It’s the first book in a series of five contemporary paranormal romances [with Vikings – shhhhhh, Read more of this post »



This started as a Facebook post, but like my books, it ran away from me.

Before I went to the RWA national conference, I teased on Facebook that I would talk about what I was working on when I got back. Since I had that project open and it was on my mind, I figured I’d make a post about it. Well, the post got too long for a quick, Read more of this post »



That one effin’ book with the jacked-up title…

So, last week I sat down and tried to work out the remaining story sequence for the Sons of Gulielmus world. Notice that I didn’t say “series order,” and that’s because I’m a pantser, not a plotter, and I let my worlds sprawl unfettered until I run out of characters to torture pair off.
