Reality hit.

GAH! Has it really been five months since I've updated?  I'd like to tell you I've been so busy writing that I haven't had time to update but...nope.

I had such grand plans and none of it happened.  What did happen was my two part-time day jobs turned into over full-time. Working six days a week left no time or energy to write.

But good news. One job ended so I'm now only working a couple days a week leaving plenty of time to write!

 YAY!

I'm thrilled and at the same time terrified.  It might sound strange considering how many books I've written but since I haven't written regularly in over a year and a half, writing has been...a struggle, to say the least. My writing muscles feel stiff but I'm working through it...slowly.  All of this means,that I probably won't be releasing a full-length novel this year but I do plan to finish writing the Until Shorts that will go out in my newsletters and a few novellas to help workout some of the kinks.

As of right now, Until Forever, the last Until Novel and the Juliet Chronicles are on hold. I hope to get back to them starting next year.  ::crossing fingers::  As much as I love Juliet and her story, I don't have the energy to conquer her epic story no matter how much I love it and excited to share it with everyone.

IN OTHER NEWS:

I don't know if this is good news or bad news. I suppose it depends on where you buy your books, but all my titles are on Kindle Unlimited...indefinately. I do plan to release any upcoming books on all sites at least for the first week of release then I'll put them on KU.

As much as I don't like it, I make twice as much with my books in Kindle Unlimited then I do when they are on all sites. And since I make just enough to pay for editing for the next book, it would be nice to have a little extra to pay for ads and other promotions.

Aww, the joys of self-publishing...sigh.

With the extra time on my hands, I HOPE this means that you'll be hearing from me a little more often.

Happy New Year!!!

So...it's been a while. Nothing makes me feel guiltier than seeing my last update was almost a year ago.  I feel even guiltier since I don't have any updates. I had so many grand plans last year but then depression hit and that was it. Writing stopped and avoidance began.  BUT after months and months of getting better, I finally found something that works for me and I'm feeling better...great even which means I've started writing again. YAY!!! 

With so many books partly written, deciding which book to finish first has been a tough decision but I think I have my new release schedule.

As of today this is the plan:
Juliet Chronicles Four
Juliet Chronicles Five
Juliet Chronicles Six
Until Forever
Juliet Chronicles Seven
Juliet Chronicles Eight
Juliet Chronicles Nine
Love Deserved
Juliet Chronicles Ten
Juliet Chronicles Eleven
Juliet Chronicles Twelve
Until Him ( An Until novella. I had hoped to have it done this past December but...) 
Penny (This is the book I worked on during National Novel Writing Month) I'm 27k words into it already so it might move up. 

In a perfect world, I get this all written this year but reality is, I'm a slow writer and with a day job, I think I'll be lucky to get half way through the list this year, but I'll do my best.
 
I don't have release dates but everyone who is subscribed to my newsletter will be the first to hear about any new releases.

The newest Until short story is here.  Emphasis on short and sweet. It's been fun to visit old characters especially  Billy and Bridget. I love them so much that I most likely will have a few extra stories with them.

Juliet Chronicles Book One

OUT NOW!!!!

Juliet Chronicles Book One


My life was just fine.
My days were spent working, hanging with my best friend and trying not to eat too many carbs.
Then I began getting flowers with unsigned notes and when I sensed someone watching me, my life no longer felt…fine.

You might know me as the girl next door but that isn’t really who I am.
They call me
Prostitute
Call-girl
Hooker
Working Girl
But my clients call me
Juliet

*This is a twelve book series filled with adult themes, sexual situations, and language. 
**WARNING: Because it’s an ongoing series most of the books will end on some kind of cliffhanger and should be read in order. 


Juliet Chronicles Book Two Coming November 7, 2017

Juliet will be here soon!


I can't even begin to tell you how terrified...I mean, excited I am to introduce Juliet to the world. I've been working on her story for longer than I can remember. It took nearly a year just to outline her story which will be spread out to twelve books.
Yes.
I said twelve.
That number overwhelms me too.
But each book will be around 35k words.
Juliet Chronicles Book One is releasing in October
Book two will release in November.
I'm finishing up book three which will release January 2018 IF my editor can squeeze it into her schedule.
Since Juliet's story takes a lot out of me, I plan to release the rest of the series every other month or every two months.
I want to be sure to avoid burnout so I'm making sure to schedule time to work on other stories. 

In case the teaser didn't give it away, this book is for 18+ due to adult themes, sexual situations and language.

Sorry, Mom.
I'll be sure to write you something else you can read. 


Juliet Chronicles Book One cover is coming soon along with the official blurb, and preorder links! EEEEK

Safe Love

A new release!!!!



Safe Love is an Always novella. You do not need to read the other books in the series. It is a complete stand alone love story.
Seth and Benny were minor characters in Love Me.


After spending years in foster care, Seth's life was anything but easy. He spent his days hiding behind a hoodie and a sketchpad counting down the days until he aged out of the system.  With ten days left until he turned eighteen he never expected to make friends with the cute girl next door.

Seth thought of Benny every single day. She was the reason he worked so hard to make his life better so one day he could deserve her. But would she forgive him for leaving three years ago without saying a word?

He was about to find out because the girl he used to know was now a gorgeous woman and she was standing right in front of him.

Buy here:






Love, Ryan has a new cover!  
My daughters were kind enough to help me make a new cover.  Having so many kids is finally paying off. ha ha 

Synopsis:
In the 90’s I fell in love with my best friend and neighbor Anna May. Growing up together, I never saw her as anything more than my friend until one night and one dance. At seventeen, I was forced to do what I had never imagined. I had to choose between losing her to another guy or do everything I could to make her mine even if it meant ruining our friendship.


To celebrate Love, Ryan will be free on Amazon March 5th and 6th. If you haven't checked out yet, here's your chance.
