What’s Coming Up?

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post talking about what’s coming up next for me so here goes!

I just finished my revision for NEVER ENOUGH – this revision really worked for me. I loved the book before and now I think it’s even stronger. Yes, you’ll be seeing Erin, Todd, Ben and Alexander, who is nearly a year old when the book starts. You’ll also see Brody, Elise, Rennie and their baby, who is 4 months old when the book starts. Cope and Ella are around and you’ll meet Gillian’s friends too!

I also have a revision due for Goddess With a Blade – which is an urban fantasy set in Las Vegas. It’s not a straight romance, but there is a romantic subplot between the main character, Rowan Summerwaite and another main character, Clive Stewart. Only it’s complicated, LOL, because Rowan is the physical and spiritual human vessel to a triple goddess and she’s in charge of keeping the vampires in Las Vegas in line and obeying the treaty they’ve signed with Rowan’s employer, the Hunter Corporation. This one comes out in June from Carina and I’m really really excited by it.

Oh and then I’m also working to finish Heart of Darkness, the first in my new paranormal romance series with Berkley Sensation. This comes out in November and it’s my first mass market! It features Meriel Owen, who is a witch next in line to run a Clan (sort of a cross between a government and a corporation) and Dominic Bright, who is a very bad boy whose grown up outside the Clan system. The world is dangerous and dark and I am LOVING IT.

In April, MESMERIZED – Andrei and Piper’s book will release. It’s Book 2 of my Phantom Corps mini series and the 4th Federation Chronicles book. In case you hadn’t noticed yet, I put part of the first chapter up at the book page.

In May, my novella dirty/bad/wrong will be in the Three To Tango anthology along with stories from Emma Holly, Megan Hart and Bethany Kane. This is a contemporary menage or love triangle antho and my story is a menage set in Petal. I’ll be putting an excerpt up this following week!

In June, like I mentioned, Goddess With A Blade comes out from Carina.

In July, Revelation goes to print from Samhain.

In August, I return to Petal again with Nathan Murphy’s book, Once and Again. This is a reunion story.

In September it’s NEVER ENOUGH – Adrian and Gillian’s book.

In November it’s Heart of Darkness

So yeah, I didn’t add the deadlines for proposals for next books – but in the midst of all that above, I’ll also be working on Captivated, the last Phantom Corps book due out in Spring ’12 and the proposals for the new contemporary series I’ll be doing for Berkley Heat, which will focus on Gillian’s friends (so yes, you’ll be seeing the Browns, Copelands and Keenans from time to time)

Busy, but exciting 2011 coming up!
