trying to put into words how insane it's been is nearly impossible. it's been a whirlwind of activity, books coming out, books being written, and i'm revved up and ready to do it all over again next year.
but... times they are a changin'.
earlier this month, i made the decision to leave mayhem publishing. i have other avenues i want to take and things I want to discover. and although i am glad i had the opportunity to work with such a talented bunch of ladies, it's time to move on.
with that being said, that decision puts into motion a ton of changes. i have a lot planned, and some very exciting projects on the way for 2014. the first being a new look for the jayne series. i have asked a very dear friend and amazingly talented designer to work with me on this project, and i can't even tell you how stoked i am. i really can't wait to share it with you guys, and as soon as i can, i will! i am so looking forward to an overhaul, and with a new team jayne at the helm, i think it's going to ROCK!
secondly, these changes will push the release of the second book in the jayne series back a month. i promise i will make it worth the wait. the changes will be fabulous and i'm really excited about the second book!.
by march, see jayne play will be available in print, as well as other ebook formats. i will be sure to keep you updated if that is something you're interested in, keep an eye out for that announcement.
as far as other projects, i will be working on the third jayne book-- tentatively slated for a june/july release. i am also going to start edits and cover design for my NaNoWriMo novel, and hope to have that out by the end of summer. i am really excited about that project. a few characters that some of you have already be introduced to will be a part of this. Cash will have his own book, and so will tyson, my naughty plumber from the Taste of the Forbidden anthology. a few bossy ladies insisted that they needed more of him, so more of him you will get! there will be a few books in the series, all geared around the lives of five brothers. hints... blue collar, alpha, hunky boys. are you in?
so, lots of exciting things going on... and a goal of four books to be published by the end of 2014 (along with a possible Valentine anthology)
i'd also like to let all my southern california readers know about a fantastic author/book signing event coming up in march at universal city walk. there are tons of great authors, and i'm super honored to be participating as well! they have some really fun things planned, so if interested, sign up soon! (links in events)
i just want to thank all of you for the support and love you've shown and tell you how very much i appreciate your readership! if it weren't for you, i wouldn't be doing this. thank you for giving me a reason to keep on writing!
happy new year, and i hope that 2014 is the year of your dreams!
all my loves,
