It’s been awhile since I blogged, so I thought I’d let you in on various happenings in my world.
1. Probably most importantly to you Morgan fans, I’m working right now on the second round of rewrites for Kissed by Ice - the fifth book in the Sunwalker Saga. It’s going to be a fun one and you’re going to learn some interesting tidbits about some of your favorite characters, so hold onto your hats! As of now, the release date is July 21st. (Want to get an email when it goes live on Amazon and other venues? Sign up for my mailing list HERE.) And because you’re awesome, here’s the cover: Continue reading →
This week’s Writer Wednesday guest is another fabulous Montlake (and indie) author, Norah Wilson. But I didn’t meet her through Montlake. I met her over a year ago through an online writer group and we’ve been friends and super-fans of each other ever since! I asked Norah the question: Why do you love romance?
I am a life-long romance reader, having started reading my mother’s tame Harlequins long before I perhaps should have been. There was always something so comforting about them. No matter the challenges (or should I say the misunderstandings? I seem to remember a lot of them!), no matter how arrogant or bull-headed the hero (I remember a lot of them too!), the heroine always managed to set him straight, after which they got their happy ending. A lot has changed about romance since those days, including the level and nature of the conflict. Heck, these days, the H&h might not even be the same species. But much remains the same, including the work and/or sacrifice required for the couple to earn their happily ever after. Continue reading →
I may be biased, but I think these books are awesome. I spent a lot of time with my amazing editor, Tiffany Yates-Martin, writing and rewriting and rewriting some more. This lady has edited for the likes of Anne Rice and Jim Butcher so she knows her stuff. She really helped me make the Sunwalker Saga shine!
I’m super excited to announce that the new Montlake Romance versions of Kissed by Darkness and Kissed by Fire will released on October 2nd of this year. Kissed by Smoke will be out sometime in December.
Earlier this month I hopped on the Eurostar and spent a few days roaming the streets of Paris. All in the name of “research” naturally. The things I do for you …
The truth is that in the fourth book of the Sunwalker Saga (Yet to be written, so don’t get too excited.) Morgan will be heading to Paris (among other places). There will be more mystery, mayhem, and madness. There will be sidhe and Templars and goodness knows what else.
In fact I only know two things at this point. The title will be Kissed by Moonlight and the cover looks a little something like this:
But of course first I must finish the edits for Montlake on Kissed by Fire. But while I do that, why don’t you sit down with a croissant and an espresso and enjoy Morgan’s Paris.
It’s been awhile since I did a Mythos Monday post. Mostly because I’ve been not just up to my eyeballs, but over my head with edits. Fortunately, though, edits for Kissed by Darkness are done and turned in, ready for Montlake Romance to republish. I didn’t think this book could get any better, but I really think it has.
Kissed by Fire edits will be starting shortly, but in the meantime I’m having a little breather. Between showing a friend around London and a short visit to Paris this week, I’m writing a short story for the Eclective’s next collection (out in June). Not only that, but I actually have a little time to blog. So, I’m talking Grimm. Continue reading →
A couple of my friends, Heather Marie Adkins (writing as Nolia McCarty) and Julia Crane have teamed up to write a fantastic new novel called Eternal Youth. I was able to catch up with the ladies over virtual coffee and find out a little be more about magic, collaboration, and the quest for Eternal Youth.
1. What do you love most about the story and characters in Eternal Youth?
J: My favorite part is traveling aspect of the book, as well as the search for the elusive Fountain Of Youth. I’ve always been fascinated with the legend. Of course, the older I get, the more I’d like to find it on my own… Continue reading →
