I get a lot of emails asking me to write faster!!! I laugh every time because I write seven days a week...every day...and LOVE what I do. Until a cover is released... most people don't know what an author is up to. I've had a super busy summer. Fury came out last month. Slade this month, and hopefully (fingers crossed...) Valiant next month. They were written a long time ago but I had to update them to fix all my old bad writing habits and so they aren't dated from the time I originally wrote them. Updating is faster than writing entirely new books. I'm writing new ones for my current series, updating old, and slowly getting the books to you!!! (Or maybe not so slowly since there are 5 new covers on this blog! LOL!!!!)
Four of my stories are going to be in the 4 Volume anthology books for Something Wicked This Way Comes. I'm so honored to be a part of it with so many wonderful, talented authors!!! (Check out their names...WOW!!!) This summer has been AMAZING!!! Plus...I'm working on a book from each of my current series. Cyborg, Raines, Zorn, and Mating Heat. I don't know what order they'll finish in but I'm typing away at them!!! With the anthologies...you can expect a futuristic alien story, a werewolf story, and...two vampire stories!!! These will be my first published vampire ones. I could totally relate to them since over the summer I've tended to work while others slept to get as much writing in as possible. I've seen the sun rise many a time!
I'll post as soon as I get release dates for Valiant and the anthology books.
In my personal life...I broke a back tooth. I have no idea how it happened but OUCH! So I had to have it pulled. DOUBLE OUCH!!! I took pain pills yesterday so I didn't get anything done. I rarely take anything so when I do...they hit me hard. I was a slug on the couch and Mr. Laurann was WONDERFUL. He rubbed my feet and pampered me. I drifted in and out of sleep which helped since even with pills...not my best day ever! I'm feeling better today and refuse to take more pain pills since I can't write on them. I'm tough and pain doesn't bother me too bad so I'll 'big girl panties' it by putting them on and dealing with it. The hardest part, honestly, is learning how to drink my iced coffees without a straw! I'm sipping them from the top and WEIRD!!!
I hope everyone is looking forward to doing something fun this weekend!!! I'm going to finish a book I'm working on and then...it's off to finish the next one!!!
