Updating on a different day

I’ve got a few updates to make. There will be some links so be warned.
Two new audiobooks are out!
The Roses Were Red
Last Dance of the Roses

Also out are two new books!
In The Blood (The Reaper’s Apprentices #3)
The Roses Were White

I’m waiting to hear from my cover designer for the cover of Patterns & Parallels #3. That will most likely be the next book that comes out. Then will be The Sugar Mountain Murders (Mary Beth’s mystery) from Portman’s Creamery. After that, I have no idea what will be next. My other books are more or less on the same wavelength right now. I’m writing everything slowly but surely. I had a slow few days, which is why things moved rather slowly for me.

Updates on current works:
Flavors of Love #3: 8K
The Summer Key: 17K
In Too Deep: 13K
TRA #4: 13K
The Roses Were Pink: 3K

I’m also working on other things on the side such as Ghosts of Burning Inn #3, Operation: Genome #2, Smoke and Ashes, and three Portman’s related books. Those aren’t priority for me but they’re there. I will also have one more newsletter out as well before the month ends.

Organizing myself

I’ve been completely spacey today. I failed my formatter by giving him the wrong version of The Roses Were White. The book is complete. I’m just flopping with getting it out. Hopefully, the book will be released by tomorrow in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

Another thing to note that The Roses Were Red’s audiobook is headed to retail. Also, after a long line of technical difficulties, Last Dance of Roses is FINALLY headed to retail too. I hope to have them up soon.

The big problem that I’ve had lately is I’ve started too many projects and haven’t gotten far on them. Therefore, I’m going to try and focus on five at the moment. The five that I’ve picked to focus on are Flavors of Love #3, In Too Deep (a standalone), TRA #4, The Summer Key, and The Roses Were Pink (new LGBT novel). I’m not adding Midnight Lessons to this list as that one is nearing an end. Ghosts of Burning Inn #3 will also get some updates along the way as will some new Portman’s stuff and Operation: Genome #2. They just won’t be the main focus. I’ll update these as I feel.

Current updates:
Flavors of Love #3: 4K
In Too Deep: 10K
TRA #4: 11K
The Summer Key: 12K
The Roses Were Pink: (Not started, just outlining now)
Ghosts #3: 5K (almost got this back to where it was)

I have to update my pre-order form for SASS. I may not have Midnight Lessons available there but we’ll see. Currently, my plan is to get The Roses Were White up and then TRA #3. Then we are done for a little while.

Spring book goals:
The Roses Were White -March 17th or 18th
The Reaper’s Apprentices #3 – March 24th
Patterns & Parallels #3 – sometime in mid-April
Sugar Mountain Murders (Mary Beth’s mystery) – late April/early May

Summer is going to be a very busy time for me personal wise, which is why I’m not making many plans for it now. I definitely don’t know what fall 2017 will be like.

Tomorrow, I hope to have some links up. I’ll try to stop updating on Thursdays as well.

Update (Happy March)

Welcome to March, everyone. Things are coming in and going out. February was a very productive month though it kind of died down towards the end.

The main reason that things died down was because of my computer dying on me. Fortunately, I was able to salvage some of the most important things; Patterns & Parallels #3, The Sugar Mountain Murders (PC #4), TRA #3, and The Roses Were White. Everything else was work that I wasn't satisfied with or work I needed to rewrite. That means we will be rewriting Operation: Genome #2, Ghosts #3, TRA #4, and Winky's first mystery will be different as well. I'm going to put the Perfume Party Murders on the side for now. I'm also trying to get Midnight Lessons, my newest erotica, up and going but I feel so lazy on it right now.

New works:

OG #2: 1K
PC #5: 2K
TRA #4: 1K
The Roses Were White: 15K
The Summer Key: 3K
Midnight Lessons: 2K
Ghosts #3: 2K

Yes, a lot of these are far from where they were but that's okay. They needed to be rewritten.

I'll be back with a better update soon.
