Gregori and Wren are back with another installment of their story, picking up several years after the end of Cake!

 

 

 

A Cake sequel – THIS IS NOT A STANDALONE STORY

An impromptu road trip makes for the honeymoon Gregori and Wren didn’t know they wanted

Bad-boy artist Gregori Ivanov wants nothing more than to marry Wren Davis. He’s asked her before—more than once—but she insisted on waiting until she’d established her own career. Now that the time is finally right, Gregori has one hell of a celebration in mind. Restaurants, museums and NYC luxury all the way…on top of all the newlywed sex they’ll be having.

The universe, unfortunately, did not get the message. When their plane is grounded in Idaho, they’re forced to improvise a road trip to get back to Seattle instead of the romantic getaway Gregori painstakingly planned. But that they’re together is what’s important, and with giant roadside potato museums, funky galleries in towns with little more than two stoplights and some seriously great diner food—in between all the great sex—Gregori and Wren find a honeymoon as unique and memorable as their love.

Hey there, everyone!  I’m sorry to have to announce that I have to cancel my appearances at BookLover’s Con in May and RARE Rome in September. I worked everything I could to try and make things happen, but at this point, I can’t.

During the summer, my mother was diagnosed with middle stage Alzheimer’s disease. She’s still independent mainly, living just down the road (less than 2 minutes by car, about a 10 minute walk), but whenever I have to be away, she needs to have someone else around just to keep an eye on her. During those two events it’s not possible and I can’t leave her on her own, so I have to cancel.

If I’ve learned anything  over the last few years, it’s that family and health have to come first. I hate that I’m disappointing readers, but I promise you it’s for a good reason. Hug your loved ones because you just never know when they won’t be around anymore.

I’ll still be at Apollycon in March and RWA National in July!

I have Crit partners!

I am not feeling as obsessive now, two folks that I respect and trust have offered to be my crit partners. This makes me happy. It’s hard to have someone read your work who isn’t interested in the genre (like … Read More »

So I’m in the middle of one story when the idea for a sequel to Triad pops into my head and pushes everything else aside. This happens to me from time to time, I’ll be working on something but an … Read More »

Phew!

I finally finished my re-edit of Triad and sent it back to Ellora’s Cave. I hope she liked the changes I made. I really worked hard on this and I think the story is better for the changes she suggested. … Read More »

Heard back from EC and they are interested in Triad after I make some editorial changes. As it happens, the suggestions for fleshing out certain aspects of the story are really good and I’d already had notes along those lines … Read More »

Done and done!

It’s off. I’ve just hit send and sent off my synopsis and chapters to Ellora’s Cave. Now I’ll pretend not to be concerned about it until I hear back while I get to Raptor Flight. I’ve put aside Velvet Night … Read More »

Finished the edit of Room Mates! I had to be ruthless with this edit, there was stuff that was superflous but I liked it, I liked the interaction of the characters a lot in three interconnected scenes and at first … Read More »

Working Day and Night…

There’s so much more than just the act of actual writing to this whole thing. For my wedding anniversary, the man got me a copy of the 2005 Guide to Literary Agents and I’ve been reading up on how to … Read More »

Spent a great deal of time editing Room Mates yesterday. It’s a contemporary romantica story about two guys and a woman. It’s funny but I realize as I’m editing my works in progress, that I’ve got three different threesome stories … Read More »
