Finally some news about the next book

Good news, I think. :)

I’m feeling pretty good about having Of Love and Zembores, the next New Canton Republic novel, ready by the end of the month. If not then, then shortly thereafter, but I’m going to stick my neck out here and say that it’ll be out by the end of the month. Maybe the last day of the month, but I think I’ll make it.

It’s not a promise, just a heads up, because I think we’re all a little happier if I don’t set a firm date and then miss it. :)

In other news, I’ve finally realized that I was possibly fighting a serious bit of depression this last year and that is why my publishing schedule between books has gotten so long. It’s funny how you often don’t recognize these things for what they are until you’re looking back on them.

I’m back writing on a regular basis now and I’m happy to say that I think I’ve finally put that behind me. I’m very hopeful that this means I’ll go back to a schedule more suited to getting out some of the many, many books I want to write. I’ll just have to see how it goes!

If you’re here reading this, thank you for sticking with me despite the slow progress on some of these stories! You are much appreciated. :)

New Release! Mason’s Regret

Mason’s Regret is my latest book! It’s starting to show up in stores now, and I’ll be updating this post as soon as I’m confident it’s available in a few more places, but YAY! I’m so f*cking excited I can’t stand it.

I love this book! (I love them all, I swear, but this one is definitely right up there at the top.) If you pick up a copy and read this one, I seriously hope you love it, too.

And oh my God, this one is long. It’s my longest book ever, actually. So, enjoy. :-)

Google Play has it, it’s coming up on Amazon in fits and starts, and you can always count on Smashwords to be live right away. :D

I’ll update the main book page for Mason’s Regret with more links as the book becomes available in other stores.

Here’s the description!

Mason’s Regret (A Wolves’ Heat Novel)

Once every three years, humans become sexual prey to a species that has no control over the urge to mate because of a devastating attraction to human scent.

It’s been three years since Mason and his twin brother were caught inside the American Protectorate and held as prisoners by the aliens everyone calls “wolves.” Mason’s brother hasn’t been the same since, and neither has Mason.

Now heat season has come again, and for reasons Mason doesn’t understand, his brother has gone back into the protectorate—and he needs Mason’s help.

Mason’s past is full of mistakes, but leaving his brother to deal with trouble alone isn’t one he’s going to make again—no matter the cost. But when wolves start howling nearby, there’s only one sane thing to do: run.

Except the only path to safety is through a terrifying alpha wolf who wants to claim Mason as his mate…

Book 8 in the Wolves’ Heat series.

This story contains explicit sex, graphic language, and sexual situations that some people might find offensive. Male/Male sexual content. Romance for anyone who likes hot male/male loving, alien mates, and a strong dose of alpha romance!

 

Here’s the cover! And a second cover just for fun

I’m getting everything together for the new book so still expecting/hoping it’ll be up really soon. Hopefully tomorrow. I will post immediately after the book goes live with the usual links and I’m really hoping you’ll like it. :-)

Here’s the official cover for the book. The description is at the end.

Bookcover for Mason's Regret

It’s blue. Since I love blue, betting on blue would’ve been a smart bet. ;-)

HOWEVER…

There was a cover war and I had a really hard time passing up the chance to use a slightly different look. In the end, I decided to stick with the style everyone’s used to seeing for this series. But I really want to share the alternate cover so I’m including it here just for fun!

An alternate book cover for Mason's Regret

It might not fit well with the series, but it totally fits the story, IMO.

And you know how you’re not supposed to eat at your computer? Please don’t do that. It does not always turn out well. :D

Anyway, on to the description!

Mason’s Regret is coming next week!

Mason’s Regret is coming! It’ll be out probably late in the week next week, but sooner if I can swing it (fingers crossed!). There’s a greater chance than usual that I might be right about this but I’m trying to build in a little extra room for the unexpected. But I wanted to update for those who’ve been waiting incredibly patiently for this book so I’m going ahead and announcing it. :-)

I’m sorry, as always, that I write and publish so incredibly slowly sometimes. You can bet if I were able to speed up, I’d do it in a heartbeat because I have so many stories I want to write and make available to you. But sometimes it just takes a while.

Also, fair warning, this book is the longest one yet—on par with Cam’s Fortune. I don’t even know how that happened but the fact that it did end up that long sure did slow things down for me. Long books are not my natural speed. :D

That said, this is a meaty book, if I do say so myself. If you skipped Gerald’s Lot, I suggest you read it before you read Mason’s Regret, because this one really follows that one even if the timeline overlap is more like Ian’s Choice and Devon’s Gamble instead of that of a direct sequel.

Now I’m going to take a short break from the long-form writing and put a little time in on my R’H’ani Chronicles series and breathe a bit. They’re short and I do love writing them so much!

After that, I haven’t decided which series I’ll tackle next, but I have several novels started already and I’m sure it’ll be one of them. If you have a preference other than Wolves’ Heat, let me know! I might use that to help me decide. :D

Anyway, I’ll get the cover and description up this week, I think, and maybe even a bit of a teaser from the book. There’s plenty of book to take it from, that’s for sure. ;D

And to everyone who has been so incredibly patient with my slow writing, thank you so much! I really do appreciate it. I keep thinking things are going to settle down in a way that lets me put in more time and then it just doesn’t happen. But I’ll keep pushing for that and maybe soon I’ll be able to write at a speed more in line with the years when I was able to put out 4 books in a year. I’m not giving up on the dream!

Update: Gerald’s Lot Will Be Coming 13th Instead of 8th

Sorry about the change up (really, really sorry!), but Gerald’s Lot will be coming the 13th instead of the 8th this month. Something’s come up that’s made it impossible for me to get the book out this week so I’ve picked the very next Monday, the 13th, for the revised release date.

I’ve only had to change an official release date for a book one other time as far as I can remember, but I’m going to have to do it.

I hope it’s not too much of an inconvenience and I’ll be back to post book info soon. :)

Also, for some reason WordPress has decided not to send me email notices for comments anymore, so I’m sorry it took so long to approve the comments on the last post! I have no idea what that’s about but hopefully it will get fixed soon.

When Is Gerald’s Lot Coming?

So when is Gerald’s Lot coming? January 2017. I’d hoped for December but it’s just not going to happen unless there’s some kind of Christmas miracle around here, so I’m sorry about that!

However, barring some kind of true disaster, Gerald’s Lot will definitely be a January release, so there’s that!

As soon as the cover is ready and I have an official January release date, I’ll post them. :)
