I can’t believe it’s already August 8th!
So is life… Unfortunately there’s no dial we can turn to slow down time.
However, I just wanted to inform inquiring minds about my book releases for the remainder of the year.
Of course, Know Her, Love Her (Daisy & Belmont, Book ONE) will be released next week on August 12th. I’m finishing up Still In Love With Her (Maggie & Vince, Book ONE). It goes to the editor the Monday after next, August 18th. I’m hoping to release it before September 18th. After I finish writing this book, I’m going to start writing Explore Her, More of Her (Daisy & Belmont, Book TWO). However, I certainly won’t be done by my next editing date of September 8th so instead I’m submitting, Vanquish (Parched, Book 7) for reedit on that date. This will be the last book in the Parched series that needs to be reedited. Yay! The project will be over. All the books in the Parched series will be available in the print format shortly after the edit of Vanquish is complete. Right now The Fifth Sister (Parched, Book 4) is available in print. I know for sure Barnes & Noble has it. The list price is $10.99 USD. The reedit of Ignite has been completed but I’ve been too busy to complete the first round of edits. I’m almost done though. I just want to finish Still in Love With Her.
So I’ll submit Explore Her, More of Her for editing on November 17, 2014. HOWEVER, the book will be completed probably by the beginning of October for sure. This means, I will start writing Forget Me Never (Pt 2) by early October. As you know by reading the books, the Parched novels are intricately plotted. I seriously cannot wait to get back to Forget Me Never. Here’s a teaser: What happens when everything and everyone on earth loses portions of their memories–even time itself? If we are shaped by our experiences, then what happens when the bad ones simply disappear and what was dead and evil is now alive and good? hmmm…. ;-) If you read Forget Me Never (Pt. 1), then you might have an idea of what of I’m hinting at.
I know… I’m so excited about writing that book. There are two parallel story lines, which will merge at the end–Clarity and Baron and the havoc the machine will wreak on the Earth and on one sister’s relationship with her bond. And so Forget Me Never (Pt. 2) will be submitted for editing on December 8th for an early January release date.
And then… I shall rest for a few weeks or maybe a month. I want to write book 3 of Daisy and Belmont and bring their love to their final destination. For me, contemporary romance doesn’t mean, twenty year old girl who is working in the real world until she gets tamed by a billionaire alpha-male who makes her conform to the rules of conventionality by making her beg for orgasms. That’s not the romance of contemporary Americans–we’ve had too many orgasms to beg for them. Maggie is not going to lose her ambitions and neither is Daisy or Angelina or any other heroine I create in the LOVE in the USA series. However, they will have to learn how to compromise and accommodate their love interests without leaving their ambitions in the dust. THAT is the contemporary aspect of romance. I want to also write Book two of Maggie and Vince, which will more than likely be the conclusion–maybe not. Maggie experiences a change in Still in Love with Her. By the end of the book, this new change will help her help Belmont, who will have no idea he’s in need of her help… I know… You’ll have to read the books to know what in the world that meant! So basically the beginning of Book 2, Maggie & Vince will occur during Explore Her More of Her (Book Two, Daisy & Belmont) but Belmont will have no idea that his “image” had taken a hit do to of his business dealings in Know Her, Love Her (Book One, Daisy and Belmont) because Maggie will fix it before Explore Her, More of Her ends.
Anyway… So now you have it. It’s time for me to get back to work!
