I’ve been so bogged down in administrative tedium the past few months that I haven’t been doing my news round-ups. Sorry! Here’s the run-down of what’s happening and what’s going to happen soon. Hold tight – this one’s jam-packed.
1 – Winterball releases tomorrow!
Winterball is my first M/M erotic romance. I’ve written MFM and MMF, and I think this was sort of a natural progression. If I have to be perfectly honest, Ménage à Troys–the first novella in my Den of Sin continuum–could have been M/M. At the time, I just wasn’t ready.
Winterball is currently available for preorder at these places (and will arrive on your e-reader first thing tomorrow morning). :
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Google Play | iBooks
I’ll be uploading it to All Romance eBooks after I get the kids out of the door for school.
…and speaking of the Den of Sin,
2 – Three Strikes is also due out this month.
I didn’t truly intend on releasing two Den of Sin novellas in the same season, but had to for logistical reasons. I didn’t want to leave Max and Giselle’s story open any longer (I left them hanging for a year, after all), and at the same time, I needed to spin my connected stories in a particular direction and needed to do it sooner than later. You’ll see more baseball players in the future and Giselle in a different role at the hotel.
Three Strikes will NOT be issued as a solo release this month, but instead as part of a sexy holiday bundle. I’ll release it by itself sometime next year, but encourage you to one-click that bundle when it comes out. Not only will you save a couple of bucks if you buy it right at release, but you’ll get five other stories included in that cost. Win-win.
I don’t mean to be oblique about the bundle, but … yeah. I’ve got to keep some info under wraps for the moment. Bear with me, plz.
3 – The Vikings have dispersed!
(Sort of.) The Vikings Unleashed bundle which contains my erotic ménage paranormal romance The Viking Queen’s Men is still available for Kindle at a damned good price of $2.99 (for 9 books!).
But!!! Now that the bundle is clear of the launch period, we’re releasing some of the individual titles in the wild. TVQM is now enrolled in Kindle Unlimited where you can read it as part of your paid subscription. Find it here. Look for other stories in the collection, too. I’d dig up the links and list them here, but I’m lazy.
4 – An Angel Fallen releases on November 17
As I mentioned before (or at least, I THINK I mentioned it), AAF is a bridge novella. It connects the Sons of Gulielmus arc to what happens next. There’s a pretty honking big hint as to what happens next at the end of A Demon Bewitched. It involves a certain angel asshole.
AAF will be priced at just 99¢, so it’s totally a guilt-free indulgence. And I think there’s only one dick joke in it. Can’t remember.
Preorder it now at Amazon.
5 – Another Storafalt Story!
Coming on or around November 25 is this return to rural Storafalt, Wyoming. Gift from Carolina is a holiday [obviously] small town romance set in the same world as Teaching the Cowboy and Back to Storafalt. The gang from Teaching the Cowboy is back in full force in this one, and I further the shitty-community-school story line. In it, I introduce you to Ronnie’s protegee Derrin and Anna’s nephew Joe (AKA “Mojo”).
There might have a cowboy fist fight in this story. And by “might” I mean “there totally is.”
It’ll be on sale for 99¢ during launch week. More on that soon. I need to get through the next couple of releases first.
6 – Other stuff potentially/probably coming soon.
I’m trying not to drag any open projects into 2015 with me, so I will PROBABLY release two more paranormal romances by the end of the year. Just depends on editor availability.
Chances are very good that in December, I’ll release Shrew 4–Following Fabian–which OMG I’VE BEEN MARINATING FOR A YEAR–and the next Afótama Legacy installment, The Chieftain’s Daughter. Like I said: depends on editor availability.
7 – Hearts and Minds series news:
On the Ropes, the next installment in my Lyrical Press geek series, has a release date!
It’s October 23……..2015.
Heh. I guess that’ll teach me to be mindful of those editorial lead times.
8 – Treat yo’self!
(And by that, I mean invite yourself.)

I think that might be it.
