Hey Now!

2015

I know, I’ve been MIA lately – still working to deal with all the aftermath of being ill for a year and trying to learn how to live now with a chronic illness. SO WEIRD!  Anyhoodle, I’ve got a bunch of stuff coming up so I figured a nice grab bag post might just do the trick.

Appearance news:

 

I’ll be at the New England RWA Chapter’s Let Your Imagination Take Flight conference April 24/25th at the Boston Marriott in Burlington, MA!  Friday the 24th I’ll be doing my USING IT ALL: Writing Sex That Not Only Steams Up the Pages, But Uses the Emotional Magnitude of Intimacy To Drive the Heart of Your Novel workshop as a master class and Saturday I’ll be at the booksigning that is open to the public! Hope to see you there!

 

May 12-17 I’ll be in Dallas, TX attending the RT Booklovers Convention!  You can click the link to the convention page and search by event or author to see what workshops and panels you might be interested in! There’s a massive book signing on Saturday the 16th that is open to the public as well.

 

July 22-25 I’ll be in NYC at the RWA National Conference :) There’s a massive booksigning on the 22nd with hundreds of your faves selling books with all the proceeds going to literacy efforts (publishers and authors donate the books so all the money can go to charity)

 

I’m pretty sure I’ll be attending the SIWC in British Columbia in the fall, but right now I’m waiting to see how the earlier travel goes health wise.

 

Upcoming Releases:

After a moderately quiet beginning of 2015, starting in May things go gangbusters until the end of the year!

First up is May 19th – where my novella/short novel in the Cherished duology, SWAY will be released as a digital short, apart from the duology. It’s up for pre-order for just $2.99 at BN  Kobo and Amazon.  This is Levi and Daisy’s story.

I love this cover! Fits in well with the Delicious series too.

Then on May 26th, it’s the last Hurley Boys novel, BACK TO YOU – this is a story of second chances and a lot of redemption for both Vaughan and Kelly. It’s up for pre-order at all the major book retailers – Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo (and a cool thing is that the first two books in the series are now on sale for just $4.99 at Amazon!)

Back to You

Back to You

 

On June 16, the first in my brand new INK AND CHROME series, OPENING UP, releases! Right now the book is just $5.99 in digital for pre-order at Kobo, BN and Amazon
