I could sit all day in my living room listening to the wood crackle and pop in the wood stove in my pajamas and write romantic tale after romantic tale. Alas, there are a lot of stories in my head and I have to finish one before I can move on to the next and by that time, there are several more stories just waiting to come out.
Right now, I am penning the finishing chapters of Threefold which is Book 2 of my Summers Sisters series. Alana, Teagan, and Riana are Wiccan sisters who are called upon by recent events in their hometown which brings to light an entity that was long buried by their ancestors as well as ancestors of a Native American tribe. If you haven’t gotten to read Blessed Be—Book 1 of the series—it is still only 99 cents on Kindle. Threefold will be released by Thanksgiving and the final excerpt—Namaste—will be ready by the end of 2017.
You might wonder what else is on the horizon for me…well, I’m going to give you a sneak preview right now. Starting with a short story that I will be writing for an anthology with a group of awesome authors I met last year at Wild Deadwood Reads. This will be a historical set in the lawless early days of prostitutes and gambling in Deadwood, South Dakota and the proceeds from the anthology will be donated to the Rider Relief Fund that helps families of rodeo riders. Speaking of Wild Deadwood Reads, I will again be attending the event in June 2018 and I hope you can join me there.
Next on the agenda, I am going to attempt a new genre. I have a muse who has given me a couple of ideas for something out of the romance genre. To write these books, I am going to be assuming the identity of Ann Nevada as I tell the tale of a congresswoman who is dead set on revoking the Second Amendment right of gun ownership until a fateful day when an NRA member steps in and saves the life of a loved one. Ann will also be writing about an equalizer type person who gets even with some narcissistic and greedy guys by using their own DNA to frame them for crimes they did not commit. Watch for the first Ann Nevada book sometime in Spring 2018.
Some of you may know I also write erotica under the name of Autumn Drake. The first two books of Autumn’s Diary of a Prostitute have been released for a couple of years now, but you will see a couple more in the next few months. Both are novellas and can be found on Kindle for 99 cents.
Finally, I am going to jump on the novella bandwagon under my own name and release a couple of stories that were part of the Crossroads Romance Writers Anthologies—The Hope Chest and The Porch Swing—one is a paranormal set in New Orleans and the other is a historical set in the prairie.
I can’t promise a new, full-length novel every month but I can promise you something new each month and if you will subscribe to my newsletter by emailing me at email@example.com my beautiful, new personal assistant—AKA my daughter Andrea—will get you added and you will have first- hand knowledge of what is new in the pipeline.
With mention of my new personal assistant, I am delighted to introduce Andrea Moore who has agreed to work for me to make sure my readers are kept in the loop. She will be doing regular Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts as well as making sure my newsletter gets out each month and my blog posts are put up each week. I am so grateful to have her assistance because it will free up my time to write a lot more. Andrea is my oldest daughter and she lives with her husband Jimmy about 5 miles from me. She has given me two awesome grandchildren—Ethan who is 16 and Morgan who will be 13 this weekend. Watch for her on Facebook this next few weeks as she does some giveaways!
