It’s been a busy year for me and unfortunately my blogging has paid the toll. Rotator cuffs, hospital stays and the release of a book in January called Raven’s Tale (Stained Series) kept me occupied the first half of the year. Now I am diligently working on three books that will come out simultaneously in November. They are in the San Francisco Vampire Series (Sucking…) and will be two full length books and another Hannah novella.
Working, working, working seems to be all I am doing. I know the title of two of the books. One will be called Suckers Bite Back and the other is Little Suckers Bite Too. Not sure what the third book will be called. It’s working title is Book 7. Can you believe there are going to be seven books in that series out by Christmas??? I can barely fathom it and I’m writing them.
It’s been such an interesting journey since I wrote the first lines of the first book until now. I never thought I would do a spinoff Hannah book. But the novellas have been so much fun. I can’t imagine the series without them. I am thinking of doing some spinoffs of some of the other characters. What do you think? And who would it be?
As far as today goes, I know that I will sit my butt in front of the computer and write, write, write. 🙂

I am pleased to announce that Hell Hounds are for Suckers is now available as an audible on iTunes, Audible.com and Amazon. It is the second installment in the San Francisco Vampire Series and a fun short novella. It focuses on the character Hannah. The third book in the series, Sucking Bites is in production right now. All the books are narrated by the talented Valerie Gilbert. I just finished writing another novella – a Christmas story for Hannah’s character that will be the fourth book in the series and will be out for Christmas. Fun, Fun!
Now not to neglect my other series… I have just signed a contract with a native Northern Irish speaker who will be narrating Stained for the audible edition. It is amazing to hear it through her lyrical, gentle accent. I can’t wait to hear Murder of Crows! Which by the way is out and on sale. I just finished a novella for the series as well about Raven and how he became a familiar and raven. It’s in edit mode right now but will be out for Christmas too.
Hoping everyone is well and getting into the holiday spirit. I am just starting to. It’s been a busy work time for me and I love it.

The very talented Miss Valerie Gilbert an actress and author in her own right has agreed to narrate and produce my book Sucking in San Francisco. I am so excited. From the first audition she nailed Lily. She has wonderful French pronunciation and just the right snark when needed *grin*.
The book should be done in the middle of September. I’m counting on you, faithful followers to help me spread the word when it’s out of production. I’ll keep you posted on the progress.
Don’t forget that A Muder of Crows comes out around the first of September. Then look for a novella on how Raven became a raven. I also can’t decide if I should write the novella for Sucking first or the next Sucking book and then the novella. The novella is another Hannah book. She goes to visit the in-laws. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about that.
Have a great weekend.

It’s been a busy summer so far. Camp, visits from family, swimming lessons, birthday parties and playdates. And were only at the tip of July! Besides all that I’ve read through two manuscripsts from my critique partner and been hard at work on my next book in the Stained series. It’s going to be great. More on the paranormal side than the mystery compared to Stained. It’s called A Murder of Crows and you should look for it in September if not sooner. As soon as I have a cover I will post it. I may have a couple to choose from and do a poll. Not sure yet.
I’m also in the midst of developing a ‘street team’. A group of 40-50 readers that would read my and 4 other author’s books for review. They then would be entered in drawings for swag (goodies) like t-shirts, things related to the books, and kindle readers. What say you??? Would you be interested? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are.
Hoping your summer is going well,

As I’ve previously reported, I’ve been working on a sequel for Sucking in San Francisco, called Sucking Bites. It was scheduled to be out in December of 2012. Due to unforeseen circumstances it was delayed. Editors had conflicting schedules and I had surgery to repair my Achilles tendon. Not fun but necessary. All this means that the book will be out by the end of February. I’ve been working hard on it. I think you will like it.
After this book I will be taking a break from the San Francisco Vampire Series to write the next Thorn (Stained) book. This one will take a lot research. I might slip in a novella about Hannah and Diel going to visit the in-laws 🙂 .
**Also Hell Hounds are for Suckers is now FREE on Amazon and KOBO.
Hope you enjoy.

Hello everyone. Many apologies for my long absence. I’ve been busy writing and healing. During this time I have made some changes to Sucking in San Francisco. It’s gotten a new cover and some new fonts for chapter headings. The new cover is beautiful, not that the old one wasn’t. It just didn’t fit the style of the book.
Sucking is also now available in paperback and in ebook on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, KOBO and hopefully soon on All Romance eBooks along with Stained.
I’ve also been working on a betweenquel that is going to be out in the next two weeks. It is based on the character Hannah from Sucking and it fits between the first and second full size books. It will be approximately sixty pages and will be called Hell Hounds are for Suckers. I will release the cover for that sometime next week.
The next book in the San Francisco Vampire Series will be called Sucking Bites and will be out by Christmas.
Lots of things happening.
