It all happens at once...

Today is my birthday, and it was a lovely day, despite some recent loses that have made me hurt.  I had a good time with my son and my husband, and tomorrow I'll go out and find a place in my garden to plant the mums I received as a gift.

Dropping in to share my draft cover for the new Hawthorn novella series.  ETA, late September--stay tuned for updates.

Happy reading,

Finished book 2

Yeah, yeah...they're only novellas this time around, but it's the first time I've ever written a series of novellas, so I'm pretty jazzed.  30,000 words in two weeks isn't a personal record, but still pretty good in terms of consistent pacing.  I am on track for getting the three books of the Hawthorn Witches series completed by mid September; if readers like it, I will add a second installment of 3 more novellas.

Today, the plan is to go back and do edits on book 1 in preparation for a September release.  I'll also get a final version of a cover in the works, and share that as soon as I have it.

Happy Reading,

(About to be) Announcing a new series

I am about 10,000 words away from finishing the second book in what I have been calling the Annie Hawthorn series, so I guess it's time to call it official.  I will be publishing a third series, and probably very soon.  The books will be shorter than my other works, about 30,000 words each; I started writing the first one as a sort of fun break from editing the Redemption series, but now the plots have grown into their own project.

I am planning to finish up writing the second installment this month, and I have cleared my calendar to edit Book #1 on September 1st, hoping to make a release date in late September.  Two more books will follow in that series before the end of this year, if all goes to plan.

I will use the rest of September to finish polishing up Redemption Book #6, which is due out on October 22nd, and then I will dive straight into writing Redemption Book #7.

I have been so busy writing lately, but having so much fun doing it.  Thank you to all of the readers who have joined me on this amazing journey!

Happy Reading,

Updated Covers for the Redemption Series!

Yeah, yeah...I'm always fidgeting with my covers.  But this was a major change in branding, so I figured it deserved a post.  Here are the new covers for the Redemption series!

...And I think this wraps up my current cover projects, so back to writing I go!

Happy Reading,
