I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 2017 certainly had its highs and lows. In February, ‘A Touch of Prudence’ was the #1 Kindle World Best Seller for 3 whole days, staying #1 under Paranormal/Fantasy for weeks. That was THRILLING! Kindle World novellas are now available under Kindle Unlimited, so if you haven’t read my 4 Kindle World Novellas (3 in S.E. Smith’s Magic, New Mexico and 1 in Eliza Gayle’s Southern Shifters) and are a Kindle Unlimited customer…enjoy!
The United States was hit by three devastating hurricanes. Having been through a 7.2 Earthquake in California, and now a Category 4 hurricane, I notice people are generally at their best during a disaster. The wonderful S.E. Smith took me and the cats into her home to sit out Irma. Although we didn’t get any writing done, it was fun to think about creating stories about our experiences with 4 cats and 1 dog sharing a house during a hurricane.
It was VERY difficult to get back into a routine after the hurricane. ‘Drake’s Nightshade’ that I hoped to finish was shelved in November since I had a February 1st due date for a shifter box set. The book is the last one in the Nightshade Saga series and I wanted it to be special. Creative juices just weren’t flowing.
Here is what I hope to do in 2018:
February: ‘A Cougar’s Longing’ for a shifter box set. A 42-year-old cougar shifter mistakenly sleeps with her 27-year-old best friend’s son. He also happens to be a wolf shifter. More info to follow on this
June: ‘Designated’ The 3rd book in the Zaratan Trilogy. This is the book I’ve been asked the most about. Since I’ll be attending a 2-day Science Fiction Convention in Ft. Myers in June, I wanted to finish the series, plus make my fans happy! FAN GIRL ALERT: Jonathan Frakes, from Star Trek:The Next Generations will be there.
August: ‘Drake’s Nightshade’ It seems I’ve been publishing this series every August for the last 3 years. I will try to have paperback copies at Literary Love in Savannah in late July.
September: ‘The Soul Mate’ a Worlds Apart prequel novella featuring Zane and Leena Childers. The novella will initially only be available in an anthology published for ‘Show Me Your Books’. It will later be available on Amazon and ultimately a ‘Worlds Apart’ box set.
I also plan to write an adult sci-fi adventure. I don’t have dates for those books as of yet, since I want to publish the trilogy every one to two months.
As you can see, 2018 will be VERY busy for me. I’m also playing in 3 tennis leagues! Good thing, I’m a great time manager. I figure by telling you all these dates, I had better make them.
