One Day

This is it and now the countdown is at hours. Shadow and its companion are the biggest undertaking I’ve taken on as a writer. I swear I tried to write it all in one book, but I had a pesky character speaking in my head refusing to be cut short.

For the people who knew this character in real life, you know I’m talking about Marinah. I’m telling you right now that girl is stubborn.

The only place put my foot down was how soon Marinah had sex with King. No, I kept telling her, you’re not ready. She fought me at every turn, but this is the only argument I won completely. Her and King’s relationship is a slow burn.

What exactly did Marinah get her way? Well, obviously we have two books instead of one. And, there will be more (she was adamant about that). She won all the clothing arguments and I can’t even imagine if this was a world of high fashion and not the hellhound apocalypse. Marinah could teach a fish to look fashionable. She also won on who lived and died though there were a couple men she was bloodthirsty for. They are waiting for another book much to her chagrin. Another is the title of the book after Warrior. It’s Beast because Marinah says so.

Now that everyone thinks I’m crazy and I won’t argue, I’m heading to the wine cabinet. My only heavy decision is red or white. Please, please, please try Shadow. I know you will love the book and Marinah! King isn’t half bad either!!!

2 Days

Today is when the real nerves set in for me, especially on a new series and these two questions go through my head constantly:
Will people read? Will they like it?

The simple answer is always the same: Some people will “get” me and some will not. After publishing more than 40 books, you would think I’d be okay. Truly I am, but I never relax until that first negative review hits. After that, life goes back to writing normal. And yes, the great reviews still matter. I re-read them after reading the bad review and I’m always so thankful that people took the time to share their reading experience and sooth my shattered soul (okay, that’s a little bit of an exaggeration but you get the picture).

The biggest problem I have right now is settling down and getting anything done. For this release I’m trying something new and have a project that’s due in two weeks. It might kill me, but it also might help the restlessness I go through. I’m keeping this project close to my heart so I can’t even whisper it to you. When it’s complete, I’ll spill the beans.

Two days doesn’t seem like a long time. To this writer, it’s a lifetime!

Tomorrow I’ll give a little behind the scenes for Shadow.

3 Days

I’ve missed a few days and it’s all because I’m preparing for Shadow’s release and time is getting away from me. These last few days are always nerve-racking and I tend to run around like a chicken with its head cut off. I’ll even add to that and say a very dull knife was used to do the deed. I plan on telling you all about the ups and downs of release in tomorrow’s post and on Monday I’ll give you some of the story behind the story. So stay tuned…

6 Days Until Shadow

To have a great thriller, you need a great protagonist. Meet the Hellhounds. They run in packs, have sharp, poisonous claws and teeth and kill out everyone in their path.

First came electromagnetic pulses that took out power, then came the terrifying monsters from beneath the surface to wipe out humans, then came their savior, another monster who gives humanity one chance.

To bad humans ruined it.

Enter the world of Hellhounds…

7 Days Until Shadow

Shadow Warriors lived among humans for hundreds of years. Arriving from a war ravaged world, they simply want to live in peace and become farmers and learn to control their savage nature. They only come out of hiding when hellhounds attack humans and annihilate the world.

After saving humanity, the new government tries to control and study them causing another war that no one can win. After killing the Warrior’s leader, King’s uncle, the warriors go on a rampage until the U.S. government signs a peace treaty.

Would you trust them?

8 Days Until Shadow

As I delved into the Shadow Warrior world, I wanted to make them different. They are not these big hot sexy beasts in their warrior form. Nope, they’re scary as crap and twice as ugly.

So on 8 days and counting, my question is how do you love a Shadow Warrior?

You’ll need to read to discover the answer and I promise it’s a dozy.

9 Days Until Shadow

King has been such an interesting character to write and I’m far from finished with him. He’s the leader of the Shadow Warriors and hates humans for their betrayal and for killing his uncle.

Enter Marinah. She’s uncoordinated, afraid of her own shadow, and thrust into a world of half men, half beast Neanderthals. I bet you can see King’s eye roll.

Simple fact: They’re a match made in hell with hell’s hounds out for blood.

Enter their world in 9 days…

10 Days Until Shadow

I can’t believe the 10-day countdown has begun. As an author I imagine, I write, I worry and for this venture I sometimes did all three at once. This new series is part urban fantasy, paranormal romance, thriller, and love story but most of all it’s about a woman who must find her courage and save the world.

Years ago, I wrote a short novella titled CRIMSON WARRIOR. It’s about hellhounds and vampires but when I wrote it, I limited the world so much I was unable to write a sequel. So I began thinking and dreaming of a new world with hellhounds. That’s when SHADOW was born.

I hope you’ll join me on this new journey. SHADOW and it’s sister novel, WARRIOR, are a work of heart.

I invite you to enter Marinah’s world.

Inside the Inferno

Book 7 in the Hotter Than Hell series is now available and the reviews are fantastic. Like most of my books, I worried. I worried that readers wouldn’t understand why I told the story how I did. Inferno is written from my heart and it pushes the boundaries of love. You met Mak and Moon in Heat. They’re the couple who started it all. If I’m honest they already had their Happily Ever After but it doesn’t tell the whole story. Moon is a criminal and he’s dragging Mak right along with him. When you live the life they do, danger is around every corner and someone must pay the price. That person is Madison or “Mak” as she prefers to be called. I love Mak because she’s so strong but everyone has their limits and Inferno pushes Mak to be someone else. As you know, in real life that doesn’t work and I had no intention of letting it work in this book. Pick up your copy today and discover what true love is and what it takes to protect those you care about.

Inferno is available for sale or FREE in Kindle Unlimited

Combust is Live

I’m so excited about this book. It’s much darker than the previous Hotter Than Hell novels but I had to tell Austin’s story his way. You met Austin in Sizzle and I’ve been thinking about his book for a long time. He’s complex and it took a very special woman to bring him around. Melina is kickass and has had a rough life. When Austin kidnaps her it only gets rougher.

What I really love about Melina is her inability to give up. She’s a fighter and proves it.

Available in Kindle Unlimited

COMBUST:

Austin Miller, the enforcer for Southern California’s crime boss, takes over after his boss and mentor dies. He’s set on revenge against the people responsible for Victor’s death and he’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants.

Melina Fernandez has never wanted anything to do with her brother’s criminal organization and has nothing to do with the hit he ordered on Southern California’s leader. She’s caught in the middle of a deadly game and her brother plans to sell her to the highest bidder as soon as possible.

When Melina is kidnapped by Austin, her worst nightmares are realized. It’s not her body he wants, it’s her flesh and her sanity. Trapped in a dark basement for days she decides to unravel her life story while Austin works on mutilating her skin with a tattoo machine.

When Moon, the crime lord of Arizona steps into help, Melina might find her salvation. The clock is ticking and her brother now wants her dead. Austin isn’t a man for games but he does want Melina at any cost, even his life.
