New changes

I did say that there would be new changes and I mentioned them in my last newsletter if you received it. If not, I might as well just reveal it now. I sent The Winter Key to a publisher (Solstice Publishing) and they have accepted it! That’s why Winter Key is no longer up. I also gave Sugar Mountain Murders and Midnight Lessons, which they also accepted. Right now, everything is in the pre-publishing stage. I cannot tell you when they will be out but hopefully it will be soon.

Another good thing is people are requesting audiobooks of Sparks and Flames and The Roses Were White this week. I’ve been giving audiobook codes left and right. The majority of them have been claimed, which makes me happy. The reviews should start to pour in soon.

I’ve also completed Roses in the Sand, a very short LGBT book. That should be out by the end of April or early May. I also need to prepare for SASS and I’m so behind on it right now. I probably won’t get into ordering swag till May.

Updates on current works:

Flavors of Love #3: 17K
Patterns & Parallels #4: 16K
The Summer Key: 30L
Portman’s Creamery #5: 6K

So far, I’m only rotating between four works. I’ve stalled on TRA #4 and In Too Deep but I hope to get my inspiration back for those two. Also, I hope to get inspiration for Smoke and Ashes (sequel to Sparks and Flames), the completion of the Black Paradise Circus arc, Ghosts of Burning Inn #3, and Operation: Genome #2. Maybe if I’m lucky, I might start Cirque: Macabre #3.

That’s about all for now. I hope you’re all doing well.

Two new audiobooks

This is a rather short post today. I have a bigger one coming up a little later but I just need to get this out. The audiobooks for Sparks and Flames and The Roses Were White are finally up on sale. We actually have covers for these books (and covers will be on the other books from this day forward).

Sparks and Flames:

The Roses Were White:

There is also some exciting news regarding some of my books. If you signed up for my newsletter, you already know of it. If not, you will find out this weekend.

Much love,

Welcome April

April is finally here and that means new things are around the corner. First thing is first, we have some April sales. The first three books in The Reaper’s Apprentices and Patterns & Parallels Saga are on sale. I’m posting on the US links but they are cheap everywhere else too.

Hearts Under Ice:*Version*=1&*entries*=0
Paper Hearts:*Version*=1&*entries*=0
Heart of Metalia:*Version*=1&*entries*=0

The Contracts:*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Secondly, The Contracts is finally up on Audible for those of you who like listening to audiobooks. Awakened is also up there and In the Blood should be up there in late April/early May.

Thirdly, time to talk about future books. The only thing that I know will come out in April is The Sugar Mountain Murders (finally), the next Portman’s Creamery book. I got the edited manuscript back today and I just need the cover now. We’ll be good to go then. As for other works, it’s hard to say. My book after that one will either be The Summer Key or Roses in the Sand (formerly The Roses Were Pink). A lot has been changing with the books that I’m writing. Currently, these are the ones I’m focused on.

Roses in the Sand: 11K
Flavors of Love #3: Unpredictable Love: 12K
The Summer Key: 23K
Patterns & Parallels #4: Deep In the Heart of the Forest: 2K

I’ve also got two PC books (not far on either of them), In Too Deep (stalled on that), two TRA books (slightly stalled on #4), Smoke and Ashes (stalled on that), and Ghosts of Burning Inn #3 (not too focused on that now). I’ve taken Winter Key down just for the time being but it will be back up sooner than expected. We just need to make some adjustments. I also have some things coming out in anthologies. In one, I’ve got a one-shot of the girls from The Roses Were Red in it. It takes place a few years after The Roses Were Red does. More on that will come later.

One last bit of news, I’m going to Authors in the City next year and SASS as well! AITC will be in my hometown so that’ll be something to look forward to. The venue is only eight minutes from my house so that’s going to be fun. SASS will be in Baltimore. I’m looking at a few other venues too. My only signing this year is SASS in Norfolk. I have some personal stuff going on as well that will affect the rest of my year (in both, good and bad ways). I’ll go into those later too.

That’s about it for now. I’ll be back with more later.
